Beckett is a fun writer who always includes wit and humor while keeping things honest. I enjoyed this series of articles about all things non-monogamy. I really could relate to most of the issues Cooper tackled. He offered his experiences in first hand accounts. He talked about the good and the bad. His admittance to feeling like a rock star, or some sort of genius for figuring out how to make an open relationship work, were very relate-able.
Although his view is from the male persuasion, he is a very open minded individual. I am so glad he penned his experiences. It was very refreshing to see such honest sexual exploration being described so openly with loads of tact. The only problems I had with this book, and they are minimal, is that a newbie may not be ready to tackle such subjects in the order they are delivered. Chapter two jumps right into the double standard, and I thought that should have come later.
Maybe more gushing over the ups before we get down to it and talk about the problems. Some people will never be ready to hear that, and it may turn off readers. He comes across, at times, as preaching that his lifestyle is the best and that will not be well received. Sex always sells, people were scared.
It is more an open dialog about what it means for him to be open sexually. He also includes what he and his wife Marilyn get out of it. Even today some of his topics will be seen as taboo, but it is my hope and indeed his that more conversation and sharing of information could occur before judgement is passed. One in seventy Americans identify themselves as swingers, on average.
That number is small in my experience compared to the reality I know. It has become common to be more sexually open.

I loved this book for the open and the curious. When you are ready, it is there for you to find. Sex books that address non-monogamy tend to be written by women or, a much smaller subset, by gay men. That's not a judgement, but it does mean that the perspective of heterosexual men tends to be under-represented, so this book fills a gap of sorts in the literature, even if Cooper identifies as Kinsey-scale 2 bisexual.
Kudos to Cooper for putting his neurotic self out there as an imperfect human example, and not in a dweeb-to-Charles-Atlas sort of way which is kind of Daniel Stern's approach i Sex books that address non-monogamy tend to be written by women or, a much smaller subset, by gay men. Kudos to Cooper for putting his neurotic self out there as an imperfect human example, and not in a dweeb-to-Charles-Atlas sort of way which is kind of Daniel Stern's approach in Swingland, covering some of the same territory.
As a memoir, it's a bit more problematic, in that the Wife with whom he first starts swinging with quickly disappears from the narrative, only to re-appear as primary "partner" about two-thirds of the book in and some years later; suggesting that he more seriously date other women just before their divorce is announced in the next chapter [Didja see that one coming?
