How much do you know about the lube that you’re using? (Are you using lube? Hopefully we’ll convince you!) Katie and Ashley get geeky in this overview of all things lube. From the ideal viscosity of silicone anal lube to an ingredient overview (especially ingredients to avoid!), they pack tons of great information into this [...]

Adult film star, author, sex educator, outspoken feminist and advocate for sexual acceptance Nina Hartley joins and honors us with a conversation on the Swingset.
Nina was a pioneer of sex positivity before sex positivity was a thing. A prolific performer, an outspoken feminist and an advocate for sexual acceptance (as a board member of the Woodhull Sexual Freedom Alliance), Nina is the sexual freedom fighter we all admire. We are deeply honored to welcome her onto the Swingset.
After Nina leaves, Dylan responds to an email we received regarding our latest Bedcast by both acknowledging our own failings and by shining light on the absurdity of claiming lack of responsibility through silence and complacency.
Katie and Ashley caught up with Sunny Megatron and Ken Melvoin-Berg to discuss all things BDSM and kink, from how to make a Yes/No/Maybe list to faux-waterboarding. Katie gets her questions answered, Ashley discovers she may be more of a top than she thought, and Sunny and Ken share the details of a scene they [...]

Vacations. Aren't they great? But you know what's better? SEXY VACATIONS. The kind where you can be naked and flirt all day and have sex all night. Or maybe you decide on an afternoon delight.

For our ninth Swinging for Dummies episode we, enthusiastic advocates of the sexy vacation, share what we have learned so that your next sexy vacation is everything you want it to be and more. That's tonight on Life on the Swingset the podcast.
Tonight's episode is sponsored by our good friends at Gamelink.com, which is where you should be going for your porn!
Daddy issues! Always an interesting topic for the two of us, this week we chat about how fluid sexuality can be when it comes to kink needs, and how Sophie in particular is finding herself leaning towards a direction she’s not used to. We work through some things together but it’s all still a wonderful work in [...]

A beautifully shot and directed penultimate episode of the season from Caleb Deschanel is hampered by an at times underwhelming script by Harley Peyton that seems to take a surprising number of shortcuts. It’s still very solid television, leading up to a “come back next week” style cliffhanger, but it pales in comparison with last [...]
Adult film star and filmmaker jessica drake has seen the porn industry through some of its most radical and affecting changes, and has moved herself from star to writer to educator with her jessica drake's Guide to Wicked Sex Series. Tonight she's joining us to discuss this evolution of an industry. We chat about how the industry deals with the double edged sword of the Internet, the difference between porn as entertainment and porn as education, cyber bullying, and we giggled about sitting on the floor crosslegged.
This week we first chat for a while about how it seems to be the season of exes right now and share a few embarrassing and emotional tales from our past. Because what’s a little podcasting conversation without some trips down memory lane? Then it’s time to sit down with our Swingset.FM sister, Miko Technogeisha [...]
Usually, when we talk about consent, we’re talking about sex, and most of us have heard the phrase “Consent is Sexy” thrown around before. While consent most certainly can be sexy, Katie and Ashley think there’s more to it than that. This week they’re taking a deeper look at consent and the many different ways [...]
Cooper posits the concern mitigation of designating a time and place a safe zone from judgement, and thus allowing yourself freedom to make mistakes.

We shake things up this episode, getting our least favorite storylines out of the way right off. (Hint, they involve Donna, James, and The Bobber.) This is a superb episode top to bottom though, thanks to director Lesli Linka Glatter and writer Mark Frost. At this late point in the abbreviated first season, it really [...]
Show favorite, Francisco Ramirez returns to the Pussy Posse this time with Kristen Lee at his side. Lola and the gang talk about fapping, anal prep AKA cleaning the cat, house boy applications and keeping it real, because that’s the only way to keep it. This show originally aired 9/25/2014 and took place at The Parkside Lounge! We are building [...]
Way back in 2011 Life on the Swingset issued a pleasure quest. Find a quality ejaculating dildo. Over the years, we did NOT find quality dildos, we DID find Miko, though, so it was a win over all. Tonight we have Steph Berman with us, creator of The Semenette, the best ejaculating dildo I've ever seen, to talk with us about simulacrum genitals.
We spoke at length about the original mission of The Semenette, to provide a way for partners to conceive and still connect in a sexy and fun way, and opened up to possibilities of users and partners playing in safe and non procreative ways; pegging, cum play, new ways for those with erectile dysfunction to still experience the pleasure of ejaculating on and in someone... it's a very versatile dildo.
Before we get to our guest’s storytelling portion of the episode we wax poetic for a while about our sex lives, including our thoughts on “maintenance sex” and how we both feel a little lonely with our partners being away, though Sophie is definitely suffering a little more than Samantha. Then it’s time to get [...]

Writer Robert Engles and director Tim Hunter impress the hell out of us with a dynamic and engaging episode that manages to showcase all the wonderful things about Twin Peaks while sidelining most of the obnoxious elements. That said, this episode does feature the disturbing domino oral fixation and Shelley Johnson trying to sexily rub [...]
Tonight, the social club hosts a discussion on consensual objectification vs. tokenization, a story that left the storyteller wondering, “Is he going to kill me, and is he at least going to get me off first?”, an intimate hot-tub side chat about NRE, Passion, and love for our existing partners and how they aren’t mutually [...]
We're back with more Swinging basics in our Swinging for Dummies series! Full Swap and Soft Swap are the two main classifications of swinging, with full swap including traditional PIV/PIA ( penis in vagina/penis in anus ) sex and soft swap not. Tonight on Life on the Swingset the podcast, we're going to be talking about the decision making that can lead you from one classification to another, as well as the benefits and drawbacks of both. But, you know, sexy like.
