On The Men, Sex & Pleasure podcast, I have the pleasure of chatting with Alicia. Alicia is a Bundjalung woman who is in her final year of study (Justice major in Criminology and Policing, and Human Services) and is passionate about helping young First Nations people who face the injustice of the criminal justice system. On top of that, she loves to help others and realised that most people were in the same boat as her: little to no sex education at school. This started off with her sharing posts on her personal Instagram page, but in January 2020 she created @life.with.leasha to have a space dedicated to sharing information we all wish we had learnt sooner. Alicia and I talk about her experience as someone who speaks about sex and sexuality online as well as her experience as a Bundjalung woman and where these two experiences may intersect. Alicia was so generous with her time and energy, particularly sharing about connecting with community and traditions.

On The Men, Sex & Pleasure podcast, I chat with Bek Antonucci. Bek is an Emotional Wellbeing and Personal Freedom Coach. She supports women to break through ineffective self worth and body image stories, activate their unique voice and live their most radically fulfilled and expressed lives. Through a range of different holistic and intuitive modalities including trauma therapy, somatic response tactics, inner child connection, wounded ego healing and more, Bek supports women to learn to love their vulnerabilities. To take radical self ownership of the thing that they once thought made them unworthy in societies eyes and transform their lives from the inside out. Together we go on a journey of deep inner transformation and come to a place of true self acceptance. Bek is a free thinker, embodied female thought leader, stigma fighter, public speaker, workshop mentor, founder of the online group programs “Being Brilliant” & “True Transformation,” and Perth based Naked Awakening facilitator. We talk about her own personal journey with cheating, herpes, sexual healing and self-love as well as how to navigate the world - both online and IRL - as a confident and sexually empowered woman.

On The Men, Sex & Pleasure podcast, I chat with Dr. Betty Martin. Betty has had her hands on people professionally for over 40 years, first as a Chiropractor and upon retiring from that practice, as a certified Surrogate Partner, Sacred Intimate, and Somatic Sex Educator. Her explorations in somatic-based therapy and practices informed her creation of the framework, The Wheel of Consent®. As part of her work with the School of Consent, Betty travels around the world teaching practitioners how to create empowered agreements in their client sessions, in her highly sought-after training “Like A Pro: The Wheel of Consent for Practitioners.” Originally developed as an offering to teach much-needed consent skills to sex workers and touch providers, this training is now attended by somatic therapists, massage therapists, sexuality educators, medical and health care workers, activists, human resources folks and the spectrum of touch-based professional providers – all of whom complete the training with a clear understanding of how consent starts with our own bodies, and then expands outwards into all forms of human relating, with or without touch. Betty and I talk about her amazing touch- and communication-based framework - The Wheel of Consent® - as well as discuss some specifics of the framework as it relates to men.

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.
