In this episode we chat with Cate from the Swinging Down Under podcast! Cate, and her partner Darrell are the hosts of the non-monogamous podcast Swinging Down Under. They started their journey in 2014 and wanted to pay it forward by chronicling our journey from monogamy into Non-Monogamy. In their podcast they share their own stories mixed in with interviews from other non-monogamous, sex positive or curious couples, educators and more. In this episode of Uncomfortable, we chat with Cate specifically about masturbation. We talk techniques, orgasm and discuss why it’s still considered taboo despite its many health benefits!!
Cate is the co-host of Swinging Down Under with her partner Darrell. They have been together for a little over 10 years now, and started their relationship as a monogamous couple. In 2014 they started the Swinging Lifestyle Podcast and since then they’ve had so much fun helping curious couples and singles navigate their way around the consensual non-monogamous lifestyle.
They are avid travellers and enjoy experiencing life together, you’ll either find them at a wine bar, indoor rock climbing, scuba diving or cooking at home with friends. They are childfree by choice and currently live in Asia (Singapore).
In their podcast they talk about their global ‘swinging around the world’ sexual adventures, share and rate events they attend (or host) and talk about everything from what condoms and lube they’re using right now through to double penetration, pussy health and that time that Cate fell off the sex swing.
