Empowering Women and Their Sexuality
At 88 years of age you can say one thing about Betty Dodson - “She’s a pistol!” which according to Yahoo means “She’s hot but also dangerous” ... In her conversation with Susan Betty talks about her years on the front lines of teaching women to come; from the beginning days of drawing myriad vulvas in San Francisco for her self-published book ‘Sex For One,’ to her continuing workshops where groups of women talk about their bodies, their sex lives and masturbate together. She advises to break the rules every so often, go over the edge, drink too much, get too high, just to enjoy the pure sensation of being more than we sometimes allow ourselves to be ~ stay creative, stay sexual, stay engaged ~ join Betty’s Army of Orgasmic Women and become a pistol yourself.
