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.

Key Points:
– Alicia shares about her motivation for sharing sexuality information
– Learning good communication skills
– Talking about sex both online and offline
– Sex education for Aborignal and Torres Straight Islander communities
– Terminology, Nations and language groups
– Connecting with community and traditions’
– Whose Country are you on?
– “There is no time limit to discovering who you are”
