On episode 12 of the Men Sex & Pleasure podcast, I chat with a very good friend of mine, Jarred Dickie. Jarred is a friendly face you might have seen around Fremantle, in Western Australia, for years. In 2013, Jarred started his Yoga journey as a student of Ava Irani (Spanda school founder) and progressed through the teachings of Hridaya Hatha Yoga. This gentle style of meditative Yoga is rooted in the “Self enquiry” method of Ramana Maharshi. Jarred also co-founded Kommunity Brew Kombucha in 2015, learning the incredible journey of running a small, conscious business.
During this podcast, we chat about the dualistic nature of masculinity and femininity as well as the idea that all spiritual practices are true, relative to our own perception and understanding. We also reflect on the current global conditions.

On episode 11 of the Men, Sex & Pleasure podcast. This time I chat with Devin Fredericksen about reframing our relationship with the earth, from Mother to Lover.
Devin helps people reconnect to themselves, each other, and Mother Earth in a heart-centred path. He supports the Regeneration of the Masculine, with the intention to reunite the global brotherhood. Devin is an ecstatic chef and regenerative farmer and specialises in sacred sexuality, conscious intimacy, permaculture.
Devin has weaved these elements together which allows Devin to facilitate the process of living in harmonious relationship with ourselves. Devin embraces life with gratitude for every day because of the gift of this opportunity to live life NOW.

On Episode 10 of the Men, Sex & Pleasure podcast, I chatted with depressed Heavy Diesel Mechanic and Male Stripper turned Agency Owner, Gym owner and Holistic Lifestyle Coach, Josh Hardy. Josh lived a life making decisions ruled by fear of not being enough, and self pity from not meeting high standards. He quit his job to pursue his passion in health & fitness, hand built his gym from scratch and is still on a huge journey of personal growth to become a better human, role model and leader. Josh and I recently connected again at a men's group after 15 years of lost contact. As kids, we used to play soccer together and now Josh offers me a fascinating peek behind the curtain into the stripping industry, from the hen's nights and dance shows to the pressure to perform to the insecurities.
- Josh's beginnings in Stripping
- Reconciling Stripping with a day job
- Being open, honest and sure of yourself
- Fitting in in male dominated spaces
- Fantasy and the popularity of Strippers
- The emphasising of physical appearance
- Insecurities in the industry

Men, Sex & Pleasure with Cam Fraser
The intention with this podcast is to platform people who perhaps haven't been part of the discourse around masculinity and sexuality in the mainstream, spiritual, Tantra and sacred sexuality communities. From sex workers, male strippers, and relationship coaches to psychosexual therapists, transgender educators and indigenous men, "Men, Sex & Pleasure" is a podcast discussing all things masculinity, sexuality, male bodies and men's experience of pleasure.
