Hello Swingset! <3 I've been listening to Life on the Swingset since early 2012, and am finally leaving a review. Sorry for taking so long! Although I know it was one of my first podcasts, I have no idea how I found it. However, it has been one of my greatest discoveries and is absolutely my favorite podcast. Not only is it very informative about so many different sex-positive topics beyond non-monogamy, it's highly entertaining. Ginger's giggles, Dylan's sighs, Cooper's rants, Lola's sass, Dr. Liz's spunk, I love it all. I've come to think of all the hosts as friends, because they have become constant companions in my life. I've shared many laughs and tears with them. Although most of them don't know me yet, they will because I greatly look forward to meeting meeting them at Desire this year. I cannot recommend this podcast enough! Thanks for everything you do and all that you bring to the world!!! ::heart eyes::
I am amazed at how open and honest the members of Life on the Swinger set are.
I enjoy the podcast, but it isnât really about swingers and swinging. Itâs more about the poly relationship and people engaging in them. That isnât a bad thing, per se, but the title of the podcast leads one to believe its about swinging and itâs really not.Also, can we have more Dirty Lola and less Dr. Liz!?
I just adore getting a new podcast from Life on the Swingset! The hosts have so much fun chatting about complex topics - they make it sound easy to put words around not-so-easy topics. The best part is they do it without shaming anyone's behaviour. Without a doubt, I learn something new on every episode. Thank you and keep up the good work !!
Y'all are so real and fun. I love listening every each one of you, especially Dr. Liz. I'm a gay man with almost 5.5-6 on the Kinsey scale, but hearing Dr. Liz talk makes me want to experiment and get over my gay-sculinity. Thank you all for the podcasts!!
I have recently gotten back into listening to Life on the Swingset and I love the new direction, fresh voices, and informative information I always learn from when listening. The mix of hosts and the diversity of voices always helps to add a variety of perspectives, that constantly impresses and informs. I love the personal stories and humorous adventures that the hosts share about their challenges and successes.I have absolutely been loving the stories about this character Three Piece and hope they continue to talk about this wonderful person. It has been rewarding to dive back into Life of the Swingset and have put it back into my rotation of things I regularly listen to.
I was in a monogamous relationship for about 2.5 years (that had some sex negative ideas) and now currently in an amazing open relationship for 8 months. Being a college student I have been doing a lot of self discovery and exploring my relationship style has been a journey. I have been reading books that pertain to the topic of open relationships and have even been to some peer groups here in my city. This podcast has been a great listen as I continue to explore this lifestyle that I have yet to completely dive into. Listening to this podcast while commuting to school has started my mornings out great. Thanks for the valuable information and laughs!
Excellent show still going strong and getting better all the time
We've had renew our previous review because, although Ginger's energy is definitely missed on LOTSS, the podcast has been outstanding recently. A couple years back, in was a little heavy on the inside jokes, etc., but Cooper and the gang have refocused on the mission of being the a truly diverse and deep series of discussions about non-monogamy while avoiding the tiresome explana-brag-i-ness of most swinging podcasts. Sure, the "husband-and-wife-tell-you-how-awesome-they-and-their-swinging-lives-are" podcasts have their place, but they can grow tiresome pretty quickly. For years now, the LOTSS gang have been taking on tough topics, questioning swinger norms when they are inconsistent with the principles of ethical non-monogamy, and still having sexy fun along the way. There is no other podcast like this one and honestly, how many podcasts can that honestly be said about? Keep up the good work, Cooper, Dylan, et al.
The title of this review sounds weird, but listening to you guys helps me to feel normal. My wife and i are both very interested in swinging and poly. Only issue is 9 kids. Almost impossible to get out. Thanks for having such fun banter and great ideas. I'm making a sex toy menu that my wife and I can use as 'Please do this to me' request. She loved the idea.
LOTSS used to be interesting... the hosts used to be funny and sexy instead of angry, scolding SJWs. We tried opening our relationship and even visited Desire based on their solid advice, and for that we're thankful. However the last year or so has been unlistenable... at least you can still listen to the archive, which despite its inferior audio quality is superior in every way.
Cooper and the gang have amazing chemistry together! They're super funny and talk constantly about nerdy sexy topics. I always enjoy 'swinging' by ;) love ya guys :D
I have listened to 50+ episodes and each time I listen I learn. From relationships, to self-enlightenment, this podcast has really opened my eyes and expanded what I thought of sexuality and lifestyle. If you are researching, or just trying to learn more about the lifestyle, this should be your "go to" podcast. The cast is hilarious and truly informed with a love to share, in more ways than one! 5 stars!
For three years, this podcast has been a 1000W LED flashlight on my journey of non-monogamy. I don't know what my life would be like, without this amazing podcast. They answer all my questions, asked and unasked, about navigating the essential issues and the inner-workings of non-monogamy. They put in the hard work at showing how a life can be lived without boundaries on love. Theyâre all super sexy, have great camaraderie, and are always entertaining, even when they get off on their tangents. They take a topic, flip it around, turn it upside down, and âgo at itâ from every angle imaginable. This podcast has helped me understand the life Iâd always known was natural for me. A huge thank you, to all of you.
The short version is this podcast has everything for those interested in open relationships. The longer version is, as a solo-poly woman, it's so refreshing to be understood, to have my particular relationship style/preferences affirmed, and to have a TON of fun playing with the spectrum of ethically non-monogamous relationships. One of the best podcasts out there, hands down. Do NOT delay in subscribing, and I encourage you to go back to the beginning.
I love this podcast. I've been listening since 2011, and I always look forward to hearing what the group has to say each week. I love that everyone is so open about their personal lives, as that's what really makes this podcast fun to listen to. You really get to know the hosts, and you become personally invested. The topics are both interesting and informative, and the banter and very obvious affection between the hosts is really what makes this podcast unique. I get to laugh and learn at the same time!
This podcast has changed my life. I'm not kidding! I have more confidence in myself, I have a tribe of wonderful people who get me, I feel comfortable in my own skin; all because of what these two geeks started almost seven years ago. Even if you're not in the lifestyle, this podcast can teach you so much. You learn acceptance and an appreciation for those who may be different. You learn to celebrate those differences, all while laughing with the hosts at their stupid geek jokes because you understand them. Be aware, some content is fully immersing and quite distracting, so use caution while driving when listening to any really deep topics (abuse). <3 Marla
Yup just love it
I can't thank these podcasters enough by giving me the tools to explore and understand myself and my partner better than ever before. Listening is addictive but great because every episode builds me as a better lover and human, thanks!
Love the show. ð
Such a great podcast about everything sexy time! I got into this podcast after listening to Ending the Sexual Dark Age. The group has amazing chemistry and I love the subjects they cover which goes into all areas of sexuality, not just swinging. It's great that they don't limit themselves, and they provide education to all walks of life.
I really enjoy this podcast, I gave it 4 stars, I would have given it 5, but the one person on the show that makes it a 4 is Ginger, she has a sexy voice, but she talks so slow, and so drawn out that she brings the entire show to a halt every time she speaks. Sorry I could not give you all a 5, but Ginger just brings the show down!!!
I never EVER thought Iâd love a podcast on swinging but this is one of my top 5 faves, and a must-listen as I researched the field. Thank you for the Swingset.
Loved every episode. A must listen if you're curious or interested.
I've been listening to this fantasic podcast for quite some time now. It's like I took 4 (or more) of my close, open minded friends, crammed them into my tiny Prius, and now get to listen to their amazing, sex positive discussions while I drive around for work. I've had plenty of my own "Oooohhhh..." moments while listening and I've learned so much over the years. Because we're all friends here, I can admit that I often join the discussion from behind the wheel. And now I've turned my newest partner onto this fun group. I look forward to more though provoking discussions!
I have been listening to the Swingset for about six months and truly feel I have found the community that I belong to. They are not condescending to people who are new or curious about ethical non monogamy. The Swingset cast share their real opinions and stories that really make you feel comfortable about dipping a toe (or whatever... ) into learning more about this amazing ethical non monogamous lifestyle. This podcast has helped me broach the subject with my partner in a way that she understood where I was coming from and also made her curious. We are now on a sexual journey that the Swingset is helping us navigate in our own way, in our own time. p.s. Hey, Ginger :)Thanks Everyone on the Swingset!!!-Justice
The four (or sometimes more) members of the cast of LotSS keep the discussion entertaining and lively. Dylan does a great job with the sound quality; it almost always sounds like everyone is in the same room with dedicated mikes. This podcast is the one true successor to Sex is Fun.
Life On The Swingset keeps me coming back for many reasons. Their views on everything from the minutiae of ethics in non-monogamy, to the etiquette of asking consent in a nude hot tub, and yes, even Cooperâs political rants, are well explained and well thought out. But the prime reason I canât wait for each new episode to drop is that the hosts have fun while still educating us about swinging. You can get dry bullet points and how-to articles from any number of sexuality resources that only scratch the surface of swinging because it might bring in a few more website hits. But here on The Swingset, itâs as if we are old friends sitting around a table on the patio (or maybe lounging on a beach bed) drinking melon balls and having an honest and earnest conversation about the lifestyle. The conversations on the podcast are punctuated with funny stories and personal anecdotes that keep me laughing while Iâm still learning. Cooper, Dylan, The Prof, Shira, Ginger, Miko and Katie do a great job here. And when it ends, as all good things inevitably do, I will shed a tear in itâs honor.
I have listened since episode one. The hosts are extremely knowledgeable, have been through a lot and their experience comes through. They are fun to listen to and always seem to enjoy each others company which makes the podcast a true pleasure.
While I'm absolutely a fan of the show and don't mind the rambling and don't mind that every host chimes in on every topic...Cooper definitely interrupts too much. Even in discussing that reviewers criticism, Coop kept interrupting his fellow hosts. Every once in a while, I wouldn't mind someone else getting a chance to finish a thought.Otherwise, keep up to good work. I'll keep supporting!
Generally informative while genuinely hillarious. These goofballs put a fun twist on things while discussing some of the harder aspects of nonmanogomy, such as the concerns of coming out to others or the inevitable hiccups in relationships. Probably one of the best podcasts I've listened to since the olden days of Sex is Fun. 5/5 will boner again.
Iâm focusing mainly on podcasts with adult film performers, but I thought I take a break and try yours out. Itâs informative, but Im not sure the information is the most accurate. Some funny moments!
This is a great podcast that uses personal stories to get at bigger issues and questions about sexuality.
I know they aren't professionals, but they are more informed than most professionals. They understand the politics, sociology, and science of The LS! Great show.
My favorite podcast. Cooper and the others are amazing. They make me feel ok about the lifestyle.
Plan and simple! There is only one reason to listen to LOTSS! It is the authority on the lifestyle, open marriage, and sex positive culture! If everyone thought this way, we would be a much happier culture!
I found this podcast after doing some searching for a decent non-monogamy show. There were some I found, but they were far below the standards I was looking for. Then I stumbled across Coop and the gang. They are very entertaining and greatly informative. My wife and I have discussed, and are starting to get our feet wet, in non-monogamy. We even want to start our own podcast, if we ever get the time, just as a record of our adventures into the playground. We have a very strong relationship and want to share that with others. This podcast has been a great way to help us figure out what we are looking for. So much so we are trying to find a way to pay for a trip to Desire in November with The Swingset gang. Thank you all for a wonderful show!!P.S.-I know she has to get this a lot, Ginger sounds like someone I'd like to have a drink with and pick her sexy brain about the cosmos.
Genuine. Sincere. Honest. Open-minded. Non-judgmental. Funny. Real. Heard enough? We love the different perspectives shared and how thought provoking this podcast is for us. Most times I need to listen twice because there is so much to process. Great work and thanks for showing us all what a healthy non-monogmous and open-minded environment should look like in todayâs world!
The show's not perfect, and I'm not sure I'd like all of the cast members if I met them in person. What makes me download it every week is, as Ginger says in the intro, the honest and earnest discussion of so many aspects of sex and relationships. They work to understand topics and invite more knowledgeable guests when their own experience is limiting. They're not shy about admitting when they don't know something. And, very importantly to me, they're good about separating their war stories from the meat of the discussion (business before "business" every week).
Time and again they prove to be more than just misfits but actually though provoking individuals who form a solid team and very prolific in the ways of Progressive Swinging. Thange the world with your words and actions and the world will reward you with a bounty.
Geeky banter and frank talk about modern swinging. Love listening to you guys and following your evolutions in the lifestyle.
A fun and educational podcast whether you are a swinger or not. I always learn something. Thanks to the Swingset crew for all you do. One of my favorite podcasts on my list!
Love this podcast. Especially Ginger. Her no-nonsense approach to ethical non-monogamy has been as inspiration.
Swinging or Poly, the hosts of swingset cover the full spectrum. and a lot of ground. Whatever your lifestyle, Cooper and company talk candidly and sometimes quite passionately about play and relationships within the community. Great introduction, or a more advanced subject depending on your episode.
I really like this podcast. I tried to listen to it a couple years ago, and couldn't really get into it. I started listening to it again a couple months ago, and I love it. If you don't like it at first, give it a second try. I think this podcast should be standard listening for anybody interested in sex. Go subscribe to Dan Savage, Sex Nerd Sandra, Sex Out Loud, and Life on the Swingset. The people are funny and very open minded. It's a bit confusing to figure out who is who when you first start listening, but they are pretty good with mentioning names so you catch on pretty quickly. I highly recommend this podcast to anybody who is Sex Positive, Kink Positive, Non-monogamous, or is just interested in sex.
It was a ok podcast to listen to in the beginning, but is now just boring. Most podcast they are doing now are about there lives and a lot less about the lifestyle.Promoted how this lifestyle is not bad, yet in said in other terms that one tried to save his marriage by doing it.....Getting divorced now. Another female has talked the same game, and was out for a while with the same kind of circumstances. Doesnt look good to newbies.
I LOVE this PodCast!!!! :) -Mimi
Love this podcast. Great education place to learn about non-monogomy.
Hey there, my wife and I decided a couple months ago to open up our relationship. You've given me some good advice that I've used recently about keeping safe(r). Thanks!
This podcast is a great blend of humor, information, and sex geekery! The topics are funny and relevant and the guests are awesome!
