Dylan here – I visited Burning Man this year, and while I fully expected to have a mind-blowing experience, I found myself wrapped up in the loving arms of another woman, and unable to completely handle some of the consequences of that. I had my first little polyamorous experience, a “playawife” for a few days, but I needed to get some of what was on my mind out. So, this recording is me, on-site, at 8am the day after I decided that what I was doing wasn’t going to last. Take a listen, and tell me what you think.

We are living in the golden age of sexual communication. There are so many ways to have sexy conversations and interactions online, it’s really rather amazing. We talk about our likes and dislikes, our enthusiasms and wants, and how we all get off online.
Flirting! It’s like a gateway drug, and that gateway sometimes leads to all manner of sexual exploits. Tonight we discuss the importance and value of flirting and how it has helped shape the panel’s sexual lives, as well as how Ginger & Shira flirted their way onto the show. And speaking of that, this is Ginger’s anniversary episode, as she’s been swinging on the Swingset with us for a full year now. All this, Cooper has sexy house guests, Dylan almost picks up a woman at a buffet line at a bowling alley, dead flies, bottles of wine, and more on Life on the Swingset: The Podcast.
Dylan hosts this episode where we discuss Kody Brown’s lawsuit, the fight for polygamy, and “Sister Wives.” Shira has learned the power of selfish sex. Cooper rants against religion and oppression, but what else is new?
Cooper tells the crew about the breakup he and Marilyn went through with a unicorn friend of theirs, their struggle with it, and how they’ve applied their feelings about polyamory and non-monogamy to the situation. The crew uses this as a jumping off point to discuss breakups in general in non-monogamy and how they differ from monogamous breakups. Then Dylan finally discusses his bisexual leanings.
The crew discusses the fact that girls need to ask permission to touch too, Shira is rejected for the very first time, Dylan talks about massages at strip clubs, and we get deep into the Anthony Weiner sex scandal, discussing whether this is an example of our society’s extreme slut shaming, if it’s possible he has an open marriage, and how we feel about this type of scandal in general.
In this short podcast special, the Swingset crew answer a question sent by a listener of the Ending The Sexual Dark Age podcast about how to transition yourself to being a bisexual male in the lifestyle when you’d previously identified as straight.
Dylan and Cooper return to Couple’s Playhouse, a swing club in the suburbs of Chicago for part two of their discussion and description of their first trip to a swingers club. Shira and Ginger add their own thoughts about swing clubs and other kink friendly clubs. Cooper talks about how odd it is to wander around nude with an erection, and Dylan continues his epic flirt.
After Shira discusses the wonderful world of sex and feeling better that came from having her IUD removed, Ginger talks about the benefits of hers, and Dylan discusses exploring his wife’s…for science. Ginger regales us with Prof’s solo date with a friend, Cooper and Marilyn take separate dates, and we discuss a wonderful trip to Couple’s Playhouse, a swing club in the suburbs of Chicago, and our experiences within in part one of our two part discussion.
In our first “Listener Mailbag” episode we answer several questions from voicemail and email, tackling such diverse topics as the hotness of swingers, sexual experience and prowess, how to swing when you have kids, going to swing clubs, male bisexuality, the HIV positive military man swinger, and more.
