Dear Betty,

I am a 36-year-old straight woman who wrote you a couple of days ago asking how to a make private session appointment. Due to a recent affair and being abstinent for most of my life, I became extremely aware of how uncomfortable I am with myself sexually, and the fact that I have never felt that I have had an orgasm bothered me immensely.

My Wife Feels Guilty Looking at Porn

Dear Betty,

I love to look at porn. My wife likes to look at times too but feels guilty. We feel like it is a sin, but enjoy it so much. Do you think porn can ruin a marriage? If I look at porn I feel so guilty. I just love my wife and family so much. Sometimes when my wife finds out I look at porn she is so hurt. Why do men struggle with porn so much. I wish I could just not look at it. Do a lot of men struggle with this? -- J

Dear J,

Dear Betty

I have been a "fan" of yours for years. I first heard of you when I was a pre-teen and was taking sex-ed classes in school. Though the teachers would never tell us about things like masturbation ("masturbation is when someone touches themselves sexually, next question...") I was lucky enough to have good family friends that would tell us all about your books and the work you have done. I really attribute self-love to my sexual success.

You Gave Me Courage to Leave Horrible Marriage

Betty,

Thank you for all you have done. Your candor and talent has freed a lot of trapped souls, including my own. I know you must receive many emails with thank-you's for all you have done. You are talented and beautiful and I only wish I had found out about you and your work earlier on in my life.

My mother raised me and my sister as catholics. I have had problems with guilt and shame because of that. Unfortunately, just as my mother and I became friends and we began to share our problems about sex and masturbation, she died suddenly of a stroke at the age of 49. I wish I could have given her a copy of your book, as I know it would have freed her soul in so many ways.
