Cooper Beckett returns to HWTAS - Episode #145

HOW WE TALK ABOUT SEX hosted by Eric Leviton

My guest, Cooper S. Beckett is an author, a podcaster, and so much more. He spent much of his life afraid of sex, sexuality, his bisexuality, his true interests, and global thermonuclear war. In this conversation we talk not just about his new novel, Approaching The Swingularity: Tales of Swinging & Polyamory in Paradise, but also his personal experiences as a host on these weeklong getaways with his guests. “Welcome home…” Those words and a glass of sparkling champagne welcome you to Aphrodite’s Resort and Spa, a place of pleasure and debauchery, situated on a strip of white sand beach on the Riviera Maya. coopersbeckett.com
