This episode features highlights from some of the most popular episodes of last year talking open relationships, swinging, hotwifing, polyamory and other forms of consensual non-monogamy. We have learned so much, so why not refresh? 2020 is another year for growth, love, and fun!
I talk to Dr. Liz Powell about different types of ethically non-monogamous relationships and how people can get on the same page about how they want to practice non-monogamy. Non-monogamy comes in many forms, and swinging is just a small buckle of it. While we focus on swinging often in the podcast, it’s a form of non-monogamy where both parties participate as a couple. There are times where the couples may have individual experience, but usually it’s a coupled experience! There are many other forms such as polyamory, open relationships, and even relationship anarchy- the more we know!
Kitty Chambliss talks about the difference between envy and jealousy, the reasons we may experience jealousy, and why jealousy is not always a bad thing. Jealousy is one of the most common human emotions, and it doesn’t only happen in the context of a romantic relationship. Sometimes we have to look deeper in ourselves; are there certain insecurities we are dealing with? Is there a deeper root to our jealousy? Perhaps we can communicate better to attain the security we need? Jealousy happens, but we can conquer it!
John and Jackie of Openlove101 discuss their own personal open relationship, their first swinging experience, and female empowerment in the swinging lifestyle. A unique space where feminine sexuality is encouraged and celebrated, it’s a shift for many of us. A positive transition, we explore the ins and outs of entering the fun, sexy lifestyle.
Hotwifing is described as a wife who has the sexual freedom to interact and be with other men, under the loving and encouraging consent of their partner. Taylor Leigh and Gabriel Mann of SeXXXperience explore their unique swinging and hotwifing relationship and what the swinging lifestyle means to them.
