Cooper Beckett: July 2010 Archives

Why Be A SwingerI was out to lunch with my boss and a group of consultants working on a project we were doing to try to dramatically expand our business reach. (Unfortunately the business is not swing-related.) One of them brought up how much trouble they'd gotten into recently when he checked out another girl without first being wary of his wife's gaze upon him. The four other men sitting at the table gave their harrumphs in approval and agreement and grumpiness at the very idea, but also the knowledge that should their eyes have been caught wandering, they'd get the same fight.

It's an old story. It's been the basis of a Home Improvement episode, and god knows how many other schlub-with-hot-wife sitcoms. It's the norm, the social contract. Man checks out girl who aren't his wife, wife makes a big deal about it. Only that's not the case for me.
