hello Malan. yes, it is normal to equalize without pinching your nose, we call it hand free equilization. below is a small write up on it.

Hands-Free  (Voluntary Opening of Eustachian Tubes)

Description: During the descent, “open” your Eustachian tubes by flexing the muscles surrounding them. The Eustachian tubes don’t actually open, but rather muscles prevent them from contracting with the increasing water pressure. This encourages the movement of air from the lungs to the Eustachian tubes, thus maintain equal air pressure.

Advantages:  Ideal for streamlining and energy conservation. Safer than other techniques when performed correctly.

Disadvantages: Requires training of muscles around Eustachian tubes. This technique is difficult or impossible for some divers to master due to the small size of their Eustachian tubes. Slower descent speed may be necessary for effective equalization. Not usually effective at depths that are well below a diver’s residual lung volume.

futher info on equlization technique please refer to http://malaysianunderwater.com/smff/index.php/topic,540.0.html

yes...when you sengeh..water comes in...the price you pay to be a happy person..heh..

so, i would be deaf oledi if i swallow saliva.. kihkikihh.. but when browsing aound, i can do the swallowing thing..if i do it quick, bc im quite last-minute-equalize-diver.. hehheee..  :D
p/s: dont try this at home.
