'Silicon Valley' Star Thomas Middleditch Reveals He and Wife Are Swingers

By Gary Trock

Comedian Thomas Middleditch may play a bumbling tech genius on TV, but when the lights go off he turns into a sexual beast and explained it all in a very revealing interview.

The "Silicon Valley" star sat down with Playboy for one of their "20Q" articles, and revealed that he and his wife are involved in the swinging community.


Middleditch has been married to costume designer Mollie Gates for the past four years.

He explained that after the two tied the knot, he asked her about opening up the relationship.

"I don’t know how much I can say, because I don’t want my wife to be mad at me. Only after I got married was I like, 'Mollie, I’m sorry, but we have to get nontraditional here.' To her credit, instead of saying 'F--k you, I’m out,' she was like, 'Let’s figure this out."

Middleditch admits that swinging has, "saved our marriage," and that they still argue over it constantly, but it works for them.


He says that swinging was something he never aspired to take part in, and that, "I self-deprecatingly call myself a pervert, but that’s not what it is. I just like it. I’m sexual."

The two have set their own boundaries and rules when it comes to sex, and Middleditch says that he and his wife always stay together as a unit.

He also describes himself as the more aggressive partner, likening himself to "gas" and his wife to the "brakes."


In fact, the experience has been so interesting, the two are now working on a comedy series based on their life experiences.

Not a bad idea, considering "Silicon Valley" will be returning to HBO in October for a 6th, and final, season.
