When thinking of strip clubs, you may have a Hollywood portrayal in your head of beautiful, long haired feminine women and men binge drinking in dimly lit clubs. Bodyhaus is an organisation that is working to challenge that. Bodyhaus is a group of queer people that have launched a campaign to make a queer strip club event. The purpose of this event would be to make a space for queer strippers to perform safely in an industry that can often ‘other’ queer bodies and even in the best of circumstances miss the mark in making those who are gender diverse feel comfortable. One of the organisers and somatic sex educator, Sarita Das, joined producer Laura Kvigstad for a chat about strip clubs in Aotearoa, how queer bodies fit into that landscape and how Sarita would love to one day perform with leg and armpit hair. Laura started off by asking about what inspired Sarita and the other organisers to campaign for this event. 

The Pledgeme campaign has since ended however if you are interested in contributing to this event or finding out more you can reach out onFacebook or Instagram

Male infertility is a serious issue in Australia and Aotearoa and there is currently no medical solution besides ‘getting healthy’ to solve it. It is an issue that isn’t discussed enough throughout society and is responsible for 50% of infertility in couples. This week on Green Desk Mitch speaks to Ateronon founder Sam Hunter about the Tomato Pill. Sam has been on a mission to create the first ever naturally occurring male fertility pill which was based off the information and statistics about the benefits of the mediterrenean diet. He has since developed the tomato pill which has enhanced the bioavailability of the lycopene in tomatoes to increase grade A sperm in men by up to nearly 50%. To begin, Mitch asks Sam what gives the tomato the ability to help with male infertility.

The 21st century has already witnessed revolutions in Ukraine, Egypt, Tunisia, and Libya, alongside other uprisings and transformational movements that reach all over the world. Although these movements had their roots in earlier movements and revolutions, they are different from their predecessors. For one, these movements are increasingly non-violent, and secondly, they are less ideologically driven. Maria Armoudian discusses how revolutions have changed this century with Leandro Vergara-Camus, John Foran, and Jack A. Goldstone.
