Overview

Betty's memoir is the story of one woman's struggle to liberate female sexuality while enjoying her own. In the 70's as the feminist movement evolved focusing on various platform issues, equal pay, voter registration, Betty latched on to sexual liberation as a symbol for self empowerment.

Realizing that so many women weren't enjoying sex she asked, "how could women ever be truly equal if they were reliant on men for their sexual satisfaction." She quickly became the leader of the sex positive feminist movement and the rest is history.

The memoir chronicles her 40-year career as a feminist including:

· Her career as a fine artist mounting the first one-woman show of erotic art in 1968.
· Her experiences with group sex during the Sexual Revolution.
· Her historic vulva slide show that premiered at NOW's 1973 Sexuality Conference.
· Her infamous Bodysex workshops - teaching 1,000s of women to take charge of their own orgasms for 25 years.
· Her introduction of the electric vibrator in 1973 to the American woman as a pleasure device.

Meet the Author

Betty Dodson, artist, author, and PhD sexologist has been one of the principal voices for women's sexual pleasure and health for over three decades.

Dodson had the first one-woman show of erotic art in ’68 in nyc followed by three others. She produced and presented the first feminist slide show of vulvas at the 1973 NOW Sexuality Conference in New York where she introduced the electric vibrator as a pleasure device. For 25 years, she ran Bodysex groups where women learned about their bodies and orgasms through the practice of self-stimulation.

Her first book, Liberating Masturbation: A Meditation on Selflove (’74) became a feminist classic. Sex for One (’87) sold over a million copies. Orgasms for Two (’02) embraces partner sex. Most recently she released My Romantic Love Wars: A Sexual Memoir that details her experiences with America's Sexual Revolution, the women's movement and her feminist sexual activism with bodysex groups that she conducted for 25 years.

She has authored numerous articles on the subject of women’s sexual pleasure and orgasm. In 1994, she earned a PhD in clinical sexology. Dodson has presented at conferences for sexual scientists, therapists, and psychologists. In 2011, she was given the public service award from SSSS's (Society for the Scientific Study of Sexuality)and the MASTERS AND JOHNSON AWARD presented by SSTAR (Society for Sex Therapy and Research). She is thrilled to be joining the ranks of these accomplished academics.
