The Australian Media Mega-Post! (Audio/Video)

When Dirk and I were touring Australia earlier this year, we were interviewed no less than six times by three different radio stations: Joy 94.9 FM in Melbourne, 4ZZZ in Brisbane, and triple j which broadcasts live nationwide! We discussed issues that are important to the LGBT community: gay rights, so-called “gay conversion therapy,” navigating open relationships, and the importance of practicing safer sex. And of course, we dished about the inner workings of the porn industry. (We also were on the Mad Wednesday drive-time show on Joy FM, but unfortunately there’s no recording of it that I could find. Was fun though!)

Sorry that it’s taken me a while to get around to posting this — Dirk’s surgery has been a real bummer — but here are each of those interviews in their entirety. We also had a brief TV cameo on ABC News in a story about our Sydney Mardi Gras float, a tribute to the great George Michael organized by the awesome community organization DIY Rainbow, which I’ve posted too. Hope you enjoy… thanks so much for listening/watching! And thanks to all the stations for having us on your shows!

Update: One of our fans located a recording of the Mad Wednesday broadcast, which I’ve added below. It’s the goofiest of the interviews and was really a blast to do. Thanks so much for finding it, Maude!

Word For Word: “More Than Porn” on Joy 94.9 FM (February 25, 2017)
In this exclusive interview with Dean Beck, ex-gay survivor Jesse Jackman, reveals the struggles he had reconciling his faith and sexuality and for the first time publicly discusses his suicide attempt in 2009. Currently touring Australia with his fiancée Dirk Caber, Jackman is acutely conscious of the tragic-porn-star stereotype, but he believes that his experience is not unique to those in the porn industry. Although hesitant to reveal such personal information, he felt it was important to share his story in order to highlight the importance of seeking good professional help. The incident took place prior to him starting in the porn industry and resulted in Jackman being hospitalized. Today Jesse and Dirk are among the most sought-after gay porn actors in the world and madly in love.

More of this interview is to come in the following weeks.


Mad Wednesday on Joy 94.9 FM (February 22, 2017)
Porn power couple Jesse Jackman and Dirk Caber popped in for a chat before their trip around Australia and kicked the drive into high gear. It’s never been more fun juggling double-entendres than with these two. Joyfully talking about blowing… instruments that is. We loved having them on air.

    First, Jesse, sorry to hear about Dirk’s surgery. How is he doing now?

    Second, I used to give Intuitive Card Readings at a Bear Night at a Gay bar in the Chelsea section of Manhattan, NYC, and virtually every night during these Bear nights, we would have anywhere between three to seven guys visiting from Australia, at virtually any time of the year.

    There are a lot of things I love about Australia, and one of them is how “Bear-friendly” they are!

      … especially Melbourne. They have a great bear community there, from what we’ve seen. They were wonderfully welcoming to us. (Everyone in Australia was, in fact. What an amazing country.)

      Dirk’s doing well… thanks for asking! His recovery is actually well ahead of schedule. He’s filming next month, in fact! 🙂
