Traditionally male sexuality has been wrapped up neatly into two boxes. Heterosexually orientated or homosexually orientated. Generally, society has not afforded acceptance of fluidity as it has for woman. Infact, bi sexual encounters for woman is often encouraged. So why doesn't this apply for men?
Recently I have been aware of an increasing amount of men who wish to explore same sex interactions. Fear of judgement and loss of relationships make them go into a secret world of the...Read Full Post »

I had the opportunity to learn more about how our youngsters are learning about sex these days. Unfortunately it appears to be from pornography. Ordinarily I would agree and have a little giggle, I mean who didn't grow up sneaking a peak at Play Boy. This is different. This is dangerous and leading to extremely dysfu...Read Full Post »

Recently I became acutely aware of the unintentional damage a male partner was placing on his female counterpart. He was expressing his admiration for his partner’s body, her skin, her eyes and hair. How he wanted always wanted to touch her. He began to get louder shifting in his seat and his frustration began to show. “Anyone can go to a massage parlour and get a hand job for some relief, but why should I have to when I have this beautiful woman at home! I don’t even want t...Read Full Post »

Doing the work that I do as a couples counsellor and sex therapist, I am privileged to have an insight into the private lives of couples and individuals. Since moving to the Northern Territory I have noticed that the issues I am seeing are specific for this location due to the nature of the work. FIFO workers, Inpex project workers and high levels of Blue Collar labour and Defence mean that more and more men, (mostly, I acknowledge woman work in these areas too), are exposed to d...Read Full Post »

You Wish Mate!
As a woman I have heard this sentiment repeated throughout my lifetime and as well as from my own thought processes. Working with men who suffer from low self-confidence, performance anxiety and in some cases anger towards woman, it is clear to me the effect woman can have on men. Why do girls think that boys are built to withstand rejection? What is it about gender stereotyping that leads us to believe that we can put a man down for trying to approach us?

JACKASS! Darwin, Northern Territory was lucky enough to have the degenerates from Jackass visit recently. Thank goodness it was a one off show day and they have left town. The noun for jackass is "stupid person". I couldn't agree more. During the show these mules encouraged two young girls up onto stage and eventually, with the crowd chanting and phones drawn to take opportunistic shots, they bayed for these girls to flash the crowd! I believe one of the girls obliged. Had I been in the crow...Read Full Post »
