Sexuality Education should explore what it is to be human; the relationships and taboos that have existed throughout time, how culture impacts our understandings of ourselves, and critical literacy around media, body image, and pornography. And so much more...
I am an experienced and qualified Sexologist and my pronouns are she/they. I'm constantly reading about and researching the science of human sexuality. My Masters thesis was on "The impact of sexually explicit media on post-millennials attitudes to sexuality" which taught me a lot about the complicated links between culture and our attitudes to sexuality.
Early in my career, after finishing a Bachelor of Arts (Psychology) and working in local government I switched to working in the adult industry. I also opened one of the Gold Coast's first pole dancing studios - Flirtish Co.
My nickname is Frank, for my ability to speak openly and honestly about things that others find awkward.
I have worked both in Australia and internationally as a Sexologist, designing and implementing projects and sexuality education for audiences ranging from community groups to United Nations staff.
I am committed to addressing gender-based violence through my work and ensuring that my words and actions contribute to decolonisation. Through my international work, I was an invited member of the United Nations Theme Group for Gender and contributed to the UN Convention on the Elimination of all forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW).
For the past 6 years I have worked at the Gold Coast Centre Against Sexual Violence, and I continue to develop projects and programs that address issues of consent such as #WhatDoYouExpect, Elder Sexual Abuse (ELSA), Schoolies, and Start By Believing.
I have also worked extensively in schools, most recently at True Relationships and Reproductive Health delivering sexuality education across South East Queensland.
With specialist training in; sexuality education, health promotion and planning, psychosexual therapy, and relationship therapy, I am committed to providing a sex-positive, confidential and inclusive service that fosters openness around sexuality.
