SS 27: Bonobo Porn and Sex at Dawn – An Interview With Christopher Ryan (Part 1)

5

On Ep 27, the Swingset interviews Christopher Ryan, author of the bestselling book Sex At Dawn which challenges the idea that monogamy is natural and ingrained in human beings. We discuss bonobos, a species that sexually is far more similar to us than chimpanzees, and the very porn-like videos of this species enjoying themselves. We postulate that the matriarchal societies described in Sex At Dawn are very reflective of the swinging and polyamorous lifestyles.

On this show: Cooper, Ginger, The Professor, Shira B.Katz, & Christopher Ryan: author of Sex At Dawn

Life on the Swingset

A podcast about swinging, polyamory, open relationships, and “the lifestyle” from the trenches. A diverse group tackles many issues involved with non-monogamy and what it means to be a swinger or polyamorous from the point of view of educating and illuminating what, for many, is a confusing journey to start on.

    A delightful interview. I strongly recommend you interview Curt Bergstrand an academic sociologist at Bellarmine University, Louisville, KY who has written a book Swinging in America. Although this book talks at some length about the swing community, its strength lies in a major deconstruction of monogamy. He explores why monogamy does not work for so many and why the therapeutic community has such difficulty dealing with polyamory and swinging. And he actually recommends that more people explore swinging and polyamory as a solution of marital habituation or boredom. Don't miss this book.
