Life on the Swingset – The Swinging & Polyamory Podcast
What Is It
People in the swinger lifestyle discuss various aspects of that lifestyle.
Release is sporadic, but you’ll get three or four episodes a month usually and they typically run around an hour. The iTunes archive goes all the way back to episode 38, so almost the whole archive; if you’re looking for those first 37, poke around the official website and see if you run across them.
What About It
There’s nothing particularly bad about this show, but also nothing of real interest. I think it’s kind of a big compliment and also a big criticism to say that it’s kind of dull at times. The good thing this reveals is that this show is serious about its topic and isn’t interested in pandering to listeners who tune in for some prurient thrill. This is a show about the lifestyle and so they talk about practical issues, all the way from the logistics of arranging a schedule to the emotional difficulties that sometimes come up. It’s a serious show, not a romp; that deserves some praise in my book, but it also means it only really appeals to people deep in the culture, which I’m not.
2 ½ stars.

Best Starting Place
Scroll the archive until a title catches your eye. Titles are pretty descriptive and pretty accurately represent the contents. I mean, you either want to hear Take It Like a Man: An Introduction to Pegging or you don’t. Choose wisely.
