B.J. I have heard that you have a rather obscure ongoing collection. Can you tell me about this hobby? How did it start?
M.S. Ah, my little secret hobby! [Laughs] I'm an avid collector of Australian coins. It all started when I found a shiny 50-cent coin on the beach one day, and it ignited a passion for seeking out those hidden treasures. You never know, one day those coins might make me a fortune.
B.J. From your shoot with Sasha, you stripped off and went nude for the camera. Are you someone that is comfortable with nudity? Did you grow up in an environment where nudity was encouraged?
M.S. Well, I'm quite comfortable in my own skin. Growing up in Australia, we have a bit of a conservative side when it comes to nudity. However, I must admit, I'm no stranger to a cheeky game of strip poker or two! [Laughs]
B.J. Talking of the shoot with Sasha, how was it? Tell us about your experience.
M.S. Working with Sasha was an incredible experience. He has this unique ability to capture the raw essence of a person, both inside and out. The shoot pushed me out of my comfort zone, but I embraced it fully. It was liberating and empowering to embrace my body and showcase its natural beauty.
We shot on such a beautiful afternoon and enjoyed dinner together after where we talked about our lives and experiences from our different parts of the world. He really is an amazing soul.
B.J. If you don’t mind, let’s dive a little deeper. Can you tell us about what sex means to you? Is it an important part of your life and routine?
M.S. Sex is a beautiful expression of intimacy and connection for me. It's an important part of life, but it's not the only thing that defines me. I believe in a balanced approach to wellness, both physically and emotionally.
