Betty Dodson ran Bodysex workshops for over 25 years. They grew out of the consciousness raising groups feminists started in the 1970's. Women would gather together and talk first person about their personal lives.

Betty took it one step further and had women answer two questions: how do you feel about your body & how do you feel about your orgasm. She called her workshops "physical and sexual consciousness raising" which she later shortened to "Bodysex".

Betty and Carlin filmed a workshop in 2011 and, based upon demand, started running groups again. It became clear that women wanted to run their own workshops following Betty's model of body pride, sisterhood, and independent orgasm. To date, we've certified 45 women to run workshops in 10 countries and 17 states.

This book is a manual describing how to run a workshop from beginning to end. Our hope is that Bodysex spreads across the globe so that future generations of women can learn how to love themselves and their bodies

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 Sex By Design that details her experiences with America's Sexual Revolution, the women's movement and her feminist sexual activism.

In 2011, Betty received the public service award from SSSS (Society for the Scientific Study of Sexuality) and the MASTERS AND JOHNSON AWARD presented by SSTAR (Society for Sex Therapy and Research). Betty was recently named one of the top ten sexual revolutionaries by Cosmopolitan magazine and number 43 of the 100 most important people in sex by Playboy Magazine.

Carlin Ross is an attorney, entrepeneur and keeper of all things Betty Dodson. She's the editor-in-chief of their site, co-leader of their Bodysex workshops and certification program, and the President of the Betty Dodson Foundation.

Her move from law to sex got her the front page of the NY Times and her vulva was broadcast on national television in Norway.
