#42 A White, Cis-Het Man in An Open Marriage (CatchVp Ep #1)
We’re taking a breather, so enjoy our very first episode. This Catch Vp Ep introduces you to the Pod, Max/Hannah/Chastain/Erik… and focuses on Max and how he came to live with his wife and girlfriend. The Pod Pod Cvlt Cast is graphic, openly discusses sex and relationships, and can touch on trauma and abuse at times. We are as honest as we can be about who we are and how we love.
If you’re new here, welcome! We’re on a journey through life, love, learning, and libido in polyamory and kink. If you’ve been with us all along, thank you.
Max shares his story: a polyamorous straight man who has experimented with soft swap, swinging, closed polyamorous relationships, and an open marriage. This episodes provides a glimpse into what it’s like to live with multiple partners and navigate communication in alternative relationships. We also talk about our hopes for the podcast, and share some resources we value.
