    Oyku, Co-Founder & CEO of Beyond, was a recent guest on the podcast. She discussed her personal journey of self-discovery and how it led to the creation of the app. Growing up in a society that put a lot of pressure on traditional relationships, Oyku struggled to find her place in the dating world. After leaving a monogamous relationship, she explored her bisexuality and began to question the societal expectations placed on relationships. This led her to discover alternatives to traditional monogamy and eventually create Beyond, a dating app that focuses on self-discovery and autonomy in dating.

    Oyku emphasized the importance of open communication and mutual respect in any type of partnership, whether it be monogamous or ethically non-monogamous. She also spoke about the struggles of navigating her sexuality in a culture that often stigmatizes anything that deviates from the norm. Despite these challenges, Oyku has found liberation in owning her sexuality and identity, and hopes to provide a safe space for others to do the same through the app.

    Overall, Oyku's journey serves as a reminder that societal expectations should never hold us back from exploring our true selves and finding fulfilling relationships.
