Normalizing Non-Monogamy - Interviews in Polyamory and Swinging

Hi! We’re Emma and Fin! We’re a married couple in our early thirties who have been exploring non-monogamy for over a decade. Every week we interview people from across the spectrums of gender, sexuality, and relationship styles to hear their amazing stories.

Many of our guests identify as swingers or polyamorous. However, quite a few have redefined non-monogamy in their own way by blending swinging and polyamory into a unique hybrid that works for them. We hope that by giving a voice to the diverse community exploring non-monogamy that we can show people they are not alone and inspire them to embrace their true selves so that, together, we can open minds and live authentically without shame.

We hope you enjoy the show and who knows, maybe someday you’ll even be willing to share your own story. We’d love to hear it!

Ep 180 - G

G joins us for what is quite possibly the most powerful discussion we've had on the show about self-discovery and knowing one's self. At only 25 years old, G has lived all over the world while building amazing communities and relationships that have helped them better understand who they are. Beyond that, their approach to life and relationships, both romantic and not, is beautiful. We both took so much away from this conversation and hope you do as well.
 
Kitty is on a simple mission: To love and to educate. She describes herself as a cheating serial monogamist for the first 10-15 years of her dating life, and then she discovered consensual non-monogamy. For nearly the past 20 years she has been exploring non-monogamy with her husband and it has completely changed her life.
 
Kitty is also the host of the Loving Without Boundaries podcast, author of The Jealousy Survival Guide, and a coach for people who are interested in and exploring non-monogamy. Check out all of her work at lovingwithoutboundaries.com.
 
Katt brings such incredible energy and positivity to this powerful discussion on personal growth and self-discovery. As she describes it, she grew up as a prude who was pretty much afraid of all things sex. However, in the last few years she has completely redefined her approach to relationships and sex. She is currently exploring solo polyamory and spending time with the people she wants to, when she wants to. You're not going to want to skip this one...
 
Katt and her best friend also host The V Spot Podcast which she describes as a vegan-ish survival podcast for best friends. If you love Katt's vibe, you'll love their podcast. Check it out!
 

Ep 177 - Claire

Claire is in her mid thirties and always felt like a misfit in her relationships. That is, until she started exploring ethical non-monogamy about seven years ago... In this fantastic conversation, she shares with us how she and her partner navigated opening their relationship, how they manage their time and energy, and how she's grown since starting her polyamorous journey.
 
Claire is also a coach who works with people in non-traditional relationships to help them create a road map for a path that works for them on a deep level. You can find her at Intuitive Loving for more information.
 
Ams and Kat are the hosts of the 2HotWives podcast and are on a mission to create a community where like-minded women can explore their sexual interests and embrace great sex as the ultimate in self-care. We have an amazing conversation with them about their journeys into the swinging lifestyle with their husbands, what they've learned along the way, and how they've each grown individually and together.
 

Ep 175 - Axel

Axel and his wife opened their relationship a few years ago after she came to him and let him know that she had fallen in love with another guy. This was a wakeup call that they had put their marriage on cruise control and that something had to change. Over the last few years they have rethought their entire approach to the relationship and their lives overall. Now they’re happily married and have found a way to blend swinging, polyamory, and BDSM into an intentional and dynamic relationship that is thriving. We hope you enjoy this conversation as much as we did.
 
 
Axel has also written a book called Marriage and Beyond (Note: We said the incorrect name during the show, the book is not Rethinking Relationships), that will be published soon. He has taken all of the information he has learned throughout his journey, combined it with interviews from others who are exploring and studying non-monogamy, and consolidated it into an incredible resource for us all. Please check out his website to sign up for the pre-launch and support this incredible work
 
This is a beautiful conversation about self-discovery, personal growth, and creating the relationship that works best for you regardless of what others think. Bella and Jase are high school sweethearts who have been together for over 13 years and opened up their relationship about six years ago while they were in their early twenties. They also have a podcast called 4OURPLAY and have created a series of ice breaker games. If you'd like to save 10% on everything on their website, you can use the code NNM. Enjoy!
 

Ep 173 - Leanne

Leanne is 22 years old and has been exploring non-monogamy in various capacities for the last five years. Her perspectives on love, life, and self worth are truly beautiful and we're so excited to be able to get her story and positive approach out into the world. One of the other things we love about this conversation is that Leanne is sort of at the forefront of a shift to creating more inclusive and diverse spaces for sex parties and events. She shares some of her incredible strategies with all of us! And, last but not least, she runs an amazing blog and Instagram account called Polyphilia, definitely go and check it out!
 
Sylvie and Jeff have been together over 17 years and exploring variations of non-monogamy for about four of them. They really jumped in with both feet after going to a sex club together while doing research for a book Sylvie was writing. They have a super fun story and bring such positive energy to everything they do. Sylvie is writing a trilogy called More. The first book, Fun, is out now and available on Amazon
 

Ep 171 - Pearl

Pearl is in her early thirties and has been exploring polyamory for a little over two years. She describes her introduction to non-monogamy as being poly under duress. Her ex-fiancé brought up the idea of threesomes and a triad and she felt she didn't really have much of a choice other than to go along with it. Two years later, she is on her own solo poly journey and has grown and learned so much about herself along the way. This is a beautiful conversation and we hope you enjoy it.
