This book gives insight into the culturally sensitive aspects of ‘men’s business’ relating to male sexual and reproductive health. The research behind the book was conducted by Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies Indigenous Research Fellow, Dr Micheal Adams. It addresses the previously silent topic of men business, in order to encourage Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men and health practitioners, to become more comfortable with each other when discussing sexual and reproductive health concerns.

The research behind the book had two goals:

  • to seek information about sexual and reproductive health and sexual dysfunction
  • discuss with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men their experiences in regards to these issues and what knowledge they have in the relation to the issues.

Over three hundred men from urban, rural and remote communities in the Northern Territory, Tiwi Islands and north and south Queensland took part in the research conducted by questionnaire and personal interviews.
