Monogamy Sucks.

Jake Dalmas came to this sobering realization on his 35th birthday after years of frustrating and failed relationships.

"Monogamy Sucks" is a fictional account of one man's sexual revolution into the swinging lifestyle. Sexy, edgy, raw and told journal style, this book will open your eyes to a way of life that is not as uncommon as you might think!

A candid look into how many men view sex and relationships, "Monogamy Sucks" is the guy version of "Sex in the City" (Insert quest for Mr. Right for quest for Ms. Right Now and Miss Right After.)

Wonderful descriptions of sex scenes that range from funny to steamy. It ta

At last; it’s here! I’ve been waiting for this a long time. George Pappas has republished his book Monogamy Sucks. Those of you who follow George on Twitter will be familiar with the hows, and whys…the stories behind the story. The expurgated version of Monogamy Sucks was originally published by Lazy Day Publishing…expurgated, because publishers are uneasy with explicit erotica, their delicate sensibilities are easily shaken and offe

“Monogamy Sucks”
According to the world of Jake Dalmas, it does, it really, really does.
Jake is making a bold, bloody, weapon wielding statement; he is a warrior, picking a nasty fight with conventionality. Jake wants, no, demands a cultural change. But he knows that he is in a minority of one. Jake is acidic and bitter and he simply does not care; conventionality is killing him, choking the life out of him, and if he is to die he will go down fighting.
I came to “Monogamy Sucks” via the realms o

Jake is a man in his early 30s who has become bored with relationships and being tied down. He’s horny, he’s desperate for a f*ck, he wants as many women as possible. He’s like a teenager in an older man’s body. Disillusioned with the bar scene, he follows different routes to try and satisfy his desires: placing ads in magazines and on phone lines, and writing online dating profiles. He attends swing parties and f*ck clubs. This is a kind of diary of his experiences over two or three years.

First off - the title: Like it or hate it, you can't feel neutral about it. So, I bought a copy of the book to find out if the story lived up to the name.

Wow! One thing I will say, Mr. Pappas pulls no punches in his story-telling about the sexual adventures of swinger, Jake Dalmas, in a life that is sometimes glamorous and sometimes hideous. Though told from a male point of view, I found myself very excited to be walking in his shoes.

I adore books that write about alternative lifestyles withou

I have to admit that the book title was what caught my interest first. Wasn’t quite sure what to expect given that, but what I got was a splendid read. Jake is such a wonderfully real character, having ups and down just like the rest of us. His adventures (and misadventures) are the stuff of locker room legends and embarrassments admitted only under cover of darkness.

This novel is not for the faint of heart, showing the swinging lifestyle with all the glitter and warts intact. Pappas doesn’t pu

George Pappas' book is highly entertaining and enlightening. Every woman should read this book, if for no other reason, to understand how men think about women and sex. I had several laugh outloud moments while turning the pages, and while some of his tales are utterly outlandish, they will keep you intrigued. I absolutely loved the happy ending. His protagonist ends up with his ideal Asian, fantasy, f_ _ _ slut that likes to swing too, and they live happily every after. Ahhhh. . . how sweet!

I didn't finish but what I read was ok, it just wasn't doing it for me and I'd gotten it as a freebie so why bother trying to finish.
