October Gathering: Sex, Love and Relating in an Intercultural World

Posted in culture, education, entertainment, events, health, politics, queer, relationships, straight on September 24, 2013 by Pleasure Forum Australia

We all have identities, some chosen, some implied, some assumed and some explicit. Each of these may (or may not) form part of who we are and how we interact with the world. How do we experience sex and dating, eroticism and relationship when we  have identities or cultural influences that buck against the norm? Or how do we manage when our multiple cultural influences are at logger heads just within ourselves?

The October Panel on Sex, Love and Relating will aim to shed light on what  this is like for them and how dialogue, self inquiry and red hot rushes have led them through uncharted waters and onto new ground. Hosted by Cyndi Darnell , please join us on Tuesday October 8th for what promises to  be an insightful, poignant and possibly hilarious discussion of the nature of cross cultural intimacy and sex in contemporary Australia.

Panelists

Asiel is a medical student and a self-proclaimed wanker at The University of Melbourne. He was born in Mexico and will celebrate his 6th year in Australia on 7th October. He lived in Mexico for about 15 years of his life and in the US for about 3, which makes for a rather interesting and sometimes unintelligible accent. He is currently in a long-distance non-monogamous relationship after deciding gay marriage was too overrated. He is also one of the founders of MD Queer, the only med student group for the promotion of LGBTI health in Australia and is currently working on a national policy on LGBTI health for the Australian Medical Students Association. If you’d like to have a say in either of those, come say hi after PFA or email at asiel.adan@hotmail.com

Budi Sudarto is the Peer Education Coordinator at the Victorian AIDS Council/Gay Men’s Health Centre. His work involves establishing strong partnerships with various GLBTIQ multicultural support groups, such as Yellow Kitties, AGMC and Helem Melbourne. He is also the convener of Gay Asian Proud, a social support network for gay Asian men in Melbourne. He wrote a Master’s thesis on the lived experiences of gay Asian men in Melbourne, as well as conducted a research project on Asian/White gay couples in Australia. Budi is passionate about advocating multiculturalism as an integral part of Melbourne’s GLBTIQ community.

Born in Pakistan, Rubina has lived 26 years of her life as a second-class citizen. Rebellious by nature, she was called a slut, crazy and many other names you can think of. In 2000, she broke away from that culture where sexuality is suppressed and expression of affection is limited to a bedroom only. A mechanical engineer with an MBA, she has held many regional positions over the years and is now working as an IT consultant. She has lived in Singapore, Sydney and Melbourne and has created a new life by reinventing herself. She is proud to call her a free sexual woman.

Kath Duncan is a Researcher and Sexuality Producer with especial interests in disability, Deaf and non-normative ppls experiences. Kath is a writer, multimedia producer, artist and arts manager (Heist egalleryhttp://www.heistegallery.com.au/), performs with Australia’s only queer Deaf disabled Unexpected Cabaret troupe Quippings (https://www.facebook.com/groups/594622963911898/) enjoys working with  other creative freaks @ Living Art (http://artsaccess.com.au/news/livingart/) based in Melbourne, from Sydney and northern NSW.

June Gathering: Sexy Beasts

Posted in academia, documentary, education, entertainment, events, queer, relationships, special events, special interest, Uncategorized on May 28, 2013 by Pleasure Forum Australia

June Gathering: Sexy Beasts

Any sexual practice someone doesn’t like gets denounced as “unnatural”. Yet a look at nature shows that sex can be as diverse as anything humans can devise. As the great biologist JBS Haldane said “The Universe is not only queerer than we suppose, but queerer than we can suppose.” Whether it is transvestism, bondage or male-male sex as a survival strategy if you can think of it there is probably an animal species that does it.

Predominantly focusing on Australian native species, this event will introduce amusing, fascinating and brain-bending sexual practices of more than a dozen species of animals. Some may provide a shock of recognition, while others are almost beyond our imagining.There will also be some discussion on what conclusions we can, and cannot, draw about human sexuality.
Note this talk is *not* about bestiality, and even the most enthusiastic animal lover might find it hard to be turned on by some of the species discussed. Hosted by Pleasure Forum Australia’s founder and creator Cyndi Darnell, this will be a night at PFA unlike any other!

Keynote Presenter: Stephen Luntz

Stephen Luntz is a staff writer at Australasian Science magazine and has been published on ABC online, Crikey and Australia Unlimited. He is the author of Forensics, Fossils and Fruitbats: A Field Guide to Australian Scientists (CSIRO Publishing 2011).
Although his background is in physics he now writes about all fields of current Australian research, and this has led him to learn more than he ever thought possible about how Australian species reproduce. He’s found these stories are more popular at parties than the latest developments in the use of Bose-Einstein Condensate, although he can tell you about that if you like as well.
Stephen is the electoral analyst (unpaid) for the Australian Greens Victoria, and a partner at Above Quota Elections, who run internal elections for non-profit organisations. He blogs at  forensicsfossilsfruitbats.wordpress.com

May Gathering: Sex Workers and the Sex Industry

Posted in academia, education, events, gender, health, queer, safer sex, sex work on April 25, 2013 by Pleasure Forum Australia

It feels like forever since I last wrote to you all, and I guess it was as we had a little lapse in our scheduling to coincide with the use of Loop bar for the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. We are now back to our regular schedule, ( 2nd Tuesday of the month).

Our April Gathering Gender? Where? was a warm and intimate exploration of the notions of sex, sexuality and gender. Thanks to all of your support  we were able to raise $1160 for Kate Bornstein’s cancer treatment fund. We sent off the funds to her 3 days later and you can see her tweet to us here.

Poignant, intimate, challenging and powerful these four panelists will be discussing the sex industry as they see it and live it in an open and respectful public forum. Hosted by Cyndi Darnell this event will highlight and explore everything you’ve ever wanted to know about the life of a sex worker and more!

April Gathering: Gender? Where?

Posted in burlesque, education, events, gender, health, men, politics, queer, relationships, trans, women on March 20, 2013 by Pleasure Forum Australia

Our March gathering on Polyamory was indeed our biggest to date! For those who ventured out in the heat to hear the tales of wonder and then some, we salute you!
April coincides with our 3rd birthday at PFA, (counting from the night we officially started to launch with speakers. )PFA has grown over the 3 years into the event you know and love today that aims to fill the gap where conventional sex education just doesn’t go.
Completely unfunded, PFA survives on your door contributions and the generosity of the panelists, so we value your attendance each month and your support for the variety of topics we bring you.
Please note that our APRIL gathering is the first Tuesday of the month ( April 2, immediately after Easter) as Loop Bar is fully booked throughout the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

All funds raised from the APRIL gathering will go towards Kate Bornstein’s cancer treatment fund . Read her response in the Huffington Post article.

GENDER? WHERE?

Are you a man? or Are you a woman? or Are you someone inbetween? What does it mean to be a man or a woman and how will you know when you get there? Gender and even sex extend beyond genitals, but many of us get tripped up when what we see and what we’ve been taught about gender don’t necessarily play out as we expect!
For more and more people the prescribed versions of masculinity and femininity no longer fit, but we are left wondering what models are available to replace them. Can you be of one gender and attracted to the same but not label yourself accordingly? This night at PFA explores what gender is and can be from a pleasure and relationship perspective. Exploring cultural and social implications surrounding gender and the experiences of those who identify and trans, gender queer or just enjoy playing with gender stereo types ( and we’ll define and explore the difference), we’ll discuss how gender affects sex and sexuality and how your own concept of gender can be (re)defined.
Hosted by Cyndi Darnell this event will highlight and explore what gender can look like and why so many more people are questioning what gender even means.

Panelists

Sally Goldner
Sally has been actively involved in Melbourne’s queer community for the last fifteen years.

Aaron
Aaron is best known at PFA as our dashing door dude & he loves a good GenderFuck! He’s worked in the sex industry for about 6 years. His gender journey started at year 0 and after years of denial, he has now been on testosterone for about 14 months! He still considers himself a baby trans cub puppy feminist and is loving his gender journey that this lifetime has afforded him ( even with all the ups AND downs.) You can pretty much ask Aaron anything to do with his transition from sex and attraction, to life pre and post T ( testosterone )

Agent Cleave
Part pirate, part mermaid, part pony, part religious icon, AGENT CLEAVE stokes desire and blurs the gender line with his sharp and sexual performances. Grotesque and beautiful in equal measure, the AGENT has captivated audiences from all walks of life by evoking a sense of rock and roll sexuality that appeals to anyone wanting to have fun.
From hard working beginnings in Melbourne’s Queer party scene, AGENT CLEAVE has relentlessly carved a niche laying somewhere between Drag, stripping and rock and roll, this peculiar signature style culminating in an ongoing DJ collaboration with recording artist PEACHES that has allowed him international exposure at major music festivals and events, his work critically lauded for its high energy, intricate design and joyful exploitation of sexual stereotypes.
Jez Pez
Jez has been actively involved in the LGBTIQ community for over a decade. He is the creator and Editor of DUDE MAGAZINE. Jez is a passionate community organiser who has co-curated exhibitions about trans men and trans masculinity for Midsumma in 2008, 2009 & 2012.

Lisa is a genderqueer trans person who has rejoined the community after 10 years finding themselves. They should have just looked behind the couch. Lisa co-facilitates Genderqueer Australia, runs a freelance web and graphic design company, studies and also volunteers with another community organisation as IT support.

October Gathering: Women Sex & Orgasm

Posted in education, events, health, kink / BDSM, Orgasm, politics, queer, relationships, straight, trans, women on September 20, 2012 by Pleasure Forum Australia

Steeped in mystery? Not enough consideration? Just plain frigid?  Slutty? ………………..or………………………..

Women’s sexuality is a hot bed of debate and opinion. Orgasms, squirting, menstruation, multiple partners, fluidity, fisting  and beyond, these four panelists who make up the team for Pleasure Forum Australia’s Women Sex and Orgasm will inspire, educate and possibly divide! Hosted by Cyndi Darnell, this event is going to be a no holds bared exploration of women’s sexuality; real &  raw.

This is a PFA event for all women and those who love them!

Panelists

Mista Samsam is a woman fond of sex and orgasms. A kinky queer fond of all kinds of sex, sometimes with no orgasm. A nerdy genderqueer warrior fond of sex with all their clothes on. An amateur BDSM player fond of mind games and power exchanges. A tart. Aloof. Shy. A sassy introvert fond of curvy femmes and angular bois. A lesbian passionate about people’s right to make informed decisions about their own sex lives without legislative or religious interference.

Clementine Ford is a writer and loudmouthed feminist living in Melbourne. She discovered masturbation early on and, consistent with her severe hypochondria, thought the resulting orgasm was the first signs of a stroke. She is a strong believer in people being able to take care of their own sexual needs. She occasionally tumbles at www.clementineford.com.au and tweets incessantly from @clementine_ford.

In 1996 Maureen Matthews decided to open a bookshop and ‘sex shop’ for women, and their partners. Bliss for Women operated until Jan 2010, but then closed (after the GFC). However, the online business, bliss4women.com, continues to offer the same services. She has done a lot of public speaking on the subject of women’s sexuality. She’s taught at the Royal Women’s Hospital at both their ‘Menopause” and ‘Living With Cancer’ courses. She also works with Jean Hailes for Women’s Health. 6 years ago she started writing her popular weekly column – ‘About Last Night’ in the Sunday Age. She answer questions about sex and relationships. Her focus has always been on empowering women and couples to enjoy their sex lives, regardless of their age, background, orientation, faith, race or cultural background. She tries to approach everyone’s situation in a non-judgemental way, combining compassion and humour with respect and honesty.

Pornographer, sexy-feminist-rant blogger and an obsessive documenter, in words, art, porn and self portraiture (more often than not, nude) Hyperballad otherwise known as Jane, has operated in circles of totally amazing, switched-on women, both personally and professionally for a great many years now. She is also a woman herself. Over 4 years working at Feck, the past several of which devoted to the Beautiful Agony project, she has shot hundreds and hundreds of regular everyday people having an orgasm, from the shoulders up and in turn interviewed them about their sexual and masturbatory experiences. This space sparked a personal interest and engagement in sex positivity, feminism, shameless self pleasure and purposeful self love.
