Dear Betty: Dodson’s New Memoir

by Catie Colliton

Betty Dodson, BUST’s former sex advice columnist, has released her sexy memoir! My Sexual Revolution “the story of one woman’s struggle to liberate female sexuality while enjoying her own” and is available through her website.

The 81-year-old sex positive feminist has taught thousands of women how to pleasure themselves in her Bodysex workshops over the past 25 years and has contributed greatly to women’s sexual liberation through her erotic art that was shown in 1968 and her vulva slideshow which was shown at NOW’s 1973 Sexuality Conference.

In a Jezebel article, Betty admits that she is worried for the future of women’s evolving sex lives, but gives some powerful words: “I think that we make too many demands on how we have to look. We’re not being individuals. We’re kind of like little lemmings. We’re too hooked on fashion, we don’t think for ourselves. And we need to have independent orgasms. So we have independent thoughts.”

Congrats Betty!
