Hey everyone, welcome to the final episode of 2018 for the dateable podcast. Here's another round of catch-up sessions with some of your favorite past guests off last week. We caught up with Shelby from to blind dates Chris who fell in love with this Uber driver Farrah who is no longer getting breadcrumbed And Rog co-host Michael Vargas who seems to be getting someone who may not be completely divorced. Well this week. Let's start with cat who appeared on season 5 episode 8 the one where she confronts controversial guest Jake about his life interesting views on dating in San Francisco versus New York at the end of the episode cat announced that she quit her job and packed up her life to set out on an adventure around the world. Where did she learn from dating around the globe? That's here from cat cat meow. So the last time we spoke or at least the last time you were on our show you were about to become this dog. Globetrotter and date around the world. Yeah and also report back what it's like to date around the world. So now it's your moment to report that what were some where did you go off first of all and then what were some of the main differences you saw and other dating scene's versus in how you were dating in San Francisco? Yeah. So I was kind of all over the place mostly in South America. So starting the Caribbean and then travel down through South America and then I spent some time in Bali as well and Indonesia ago and then for the past couple of months, I've been in Mexico City. So I've kind of been all over the place and have you dated in every city. I have I wouldn't say day off because and this is the weird thing like before I left. I felt like when I went abroad I would be dating the way that I dated here like meeting someone like George. Going on a date like seeing if you like them, etc. Etc. And then I quickly realize like I'm reverting back to like my twenty one year old self. I'm staying in hostels off with random like foreign guys. Like is it because different there? Do you think it's cuz you were like an expat traveling I think like both reason, so I was first of all is in like this group of like Travelers because I was like more focused on traveling it was staying in hostels, right? So you have other people that are also like backpack right stuff. So you're in more of like a party. Yeah. Yeah party Vibe. So I like reverted back to college job ya college level stuff and like I was meeting amazing people, but I wasn't thinking like, oh, I need to go on a date with them know like we hang out and we do fun activities together. Because we're both travelling the world and seeing stuff. So it's just like the wake up and then hook hello massage each other's thoughts. Right? Sometimes I would meet people other people who were travelling. Sometimes I would meet like local people. I remember like in Patagonia. I was in the middle of nowhere in Patagonia was like the the last place I would ever think that it would ever find a guy and I look into a bar and it's like a 12 walked over to like wait on me and I'm like, oh what twelve like in the ten-point scale? Yeah, and he's like gorgeous Argentinean guy. We shacked up in his shock that he was like literally Shack tapped up in the shack and like that was really lovely but it's like, okay now I'm leaving and we still keep in touch and stuff. So it's more like organic. What's the craziest? Yeah dog. Story was I like the craziest is by far Brazil Brazil is in terms of like being sexually open Brazil's probably the most sexually open place of ever been down to it's very much.

00:05:01 - 00:10:02

Like why wouldn't you have sex with someone that you're attracted to write like the whole like holding back is nothing no black men and women are equally as aggressive sexually, you know, I think men are still more but women are definitely like down to go down. It's not the women are holding out. Yeah, right. So the no waiting for the third date they dating though. There's no dating right or yeah, I mean people due date there. Like they have they go out with each other and have relationships and stuff, but it's definitely more free if you meet someone at a bar or you meet someone out like you're going to go have sex with them. Like why would you not dead? Yeah, kind of thing. We're here. It's almost looked down on a little yeah totally. So there's no Walk of Shame then Walk of Fame in the right. It's like yeah, I just have sex what I've had so many walks of Shame walks a shave and Brazil come with like Carnivale like walking into like the bakery on it's like it's a Tuesday at 8 a.m. I've got glitter all over my face and people are like, hey know what you've been down there. They like high-fiving. Yeah, and they're like this happens all the time Jive. Everyone's having a good so you're getting to your craziest moment in Brazil. Yeah, so I'm proud to say I am in Brazil. I had my first threesome. Oh, wow, two guys. Are you guys? Okay. Yes. That was everything. I could have dreamed of birth. To take a lunch tell us more that's logistic. Well, I'm not going to go that far into it. But it was just like one of those things that happened really organically and I was just like hanging out this guy started talking to me in the bathroom and then like ended up hanging out with him and his friend and went back to like their hotel. I thought it was going to be with one guy and then I got like nope. It was too and they just started going after it. I'm not going to say no to this right now. No. Yeah, and I just remember the next day coming home just off and I think I said, I'm pretty sure I sent you guys a video or something just to clarify a video of you telling us videos of the Reserve. I would have paid to see but you said this is the wrong video video. Yeah. So I feel like I really got to explore my sexuality in Brazil a lot birth. I I'm a sexual person and there it was just completely fine to like Let your freak flag fly, right? Like like everyone makes out with each other like really quickly. Yeah, you can meet someone for like five minutes and they go in to kiss you and that's completely normal people on the street will kiss each other. So I remember one of your complaints about dating in SF SF men weren't aggressive opposite and this is clear the opposite. Yeah, what are your thoughts now that you've experienced the opposite. I love the song weird being back. Are you likewise? Nobody making out with me yet? Yeah. I mean I pretty much know like when I come back to San Francisco. I'm like it's going to be my syllabus. Yeah. I like it's true like a nice rest. Yeah. I mean, it's like a retreat. It's the time to recover. Where are you going over China Retreat AKA, San Francisco A true though, it's like well, she want to take a break from my waxing get it all you know back in order now in Brazil. Did you find the was there anything that you weren't okay with or were not comfortable with? I think the main thing in Brazil was like it was so much fun. And it was like during summer and Carnevale. It's partying. Everyone is hooking up like having very special situations. One thing that's very common. There is people cheating on each other. I met a lot of people that were like, I need to be in an open relationship or there's like one side that they're like, you know Catholic and have that but then they also have this like Progressive side to we're not natural to only be with one person and all the time and not so that's like more of a discussion. I was thinking to myself like would I be okay being with a man knowing that he was going to write be with other women right off? And because that's kind of the standard there I would say I mean not everyone but and I was thinking to myself like if I were to fall in love with somebody here, it's almost like you have to kind of set the expectation like, okay.

00:10:02 - 00:15:01

Are you going to be with other people? Like I know you probably are so let's have that conversation and like what are the boundaries of our life situations like the consequence of being so overly sexual? Yeah that like this is what happened. Yeah, and I always with guys who later on I would ask them straight up if they were married and they would like lie to my face, you know, I mean, isn't that that's so weird. Is that on one hand? It's like okay. It's expected that people cheat but on the other hand they're lying about it because they it's just wrong the Apple do it, but it's still wrong to hook up with them. So they know that if they say yes, you're going to be like no. Yeah or less likely right or taken back. Yeah. So are you okay? I still haven't really figured it out. But what I do know is that I'm way more open to giving other types of relationships a chance check dominada me non-monogamy or like bisexuality and I met a guy who was bisexual who has attracted to in Brazil and well in Columbia. Okay, he told me he was bisexual and I said, oh normally that would be like a turn off to me and he kind of like put me in my place like interesting like women need to accept men being like more open with their sexuality and everyone should be like that in general and I was like, wow, I'm meeting my Progressive, you know, people are making me like be like, yeah, I think they'd be okay. Yeah, like interesting in San Francisco Progressive and then yeah feel like this. I know I know I'm meeting people who are also traveler right who live different Lifestyles and like the normal person dead. When you meet local people it is different like right they tend to be more traditional true that horde of people and is it makes travel? I it might be more like you're on vacation. You're getting a lot. You're partying a lot. You're looking up like totally so, where are you now? So right now I'm in San Francisco. So I'm pretty celibate vagina vagina vagina right now, but I'm going to be going back to Brazil. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Yeah Sharon. She she deserves home after this past year. It was really open to like whatever was coming my way and I was not closed off to a relationship but I wasn't necessarily like seeking out a relationship. I was more like if it happens it happens. If it doesn't it doesn't I'm still kind of continuing in that way, but do you feel I would like to find a partner some time in Brazil. It doesn't have to be in Brazil. But you're choosing to go back to Brazil. I'm not choosing the places based off of like where I think I'm going to find off my best chance of finding a person or a partner right? I'm going to places that make me feel happy. Is there anything you miss about dating in San Francisco, but not really to be honest. Not really. I definitely like felt like here guys with like take me out more. Yeah like a proper day. Yeah, you felt like it was like a property where most of what I was doing was meeting people at parties or meeting people out just like in normal life, which is like more organic, but it wouldn't be a big production kind of all I had to do this it would just be like, hey, well, do you want to hang out later? I'm going to go do this. You want to come with me. Right? Right. So we're casual. It's more casual. Yeah, so feels like a younger version. And but also it's a product of what you are doing to really yeah. Yeah, cool. All right. Well, thanks for that update. Yeah, once you get to Brazil, we probably won't be hearing from me. You know, there's another threesome. I'll get the video The Right video video. But when you're done with The Sex Dungeon there you can always let us know.
