On October 15, Occupy TVNY met with Pulitzer prize-winning author and journalist Chris Hedges in Times Square, New York City, where tens of thousands of people assembled on a global day of action.  Chris has covered "movements" - all the revolutions in Eastern Europe - and he believes occupy wall street "is real and it could take them all down":

Here's another clip where Chris Hedges schools a CBC reporter on occupy wall street. They had to issue a formal apology after this interview:

How Can I Ever Come To Understand Polyamory?

Dear Dr. Betty,

I've sent you a question before, regarding my sexual frustrations during sex, thanks to my physical handicap. I have a new problem, unfortunately. It has nothing to do with my sex life, but it does have to do with the emergence of polyamory in our popular culture.

Warren Buffett: "I Could End the Deficit in 5 Minutes"

Warren Buffett, in a recent interview with CNBC, offers one of the best quotes about the debt ceiling:

"I could end the deficit in 5 minutes," he told CNBC. "You just pass a law that says that anytime there is a deficit of more than 3% of GDP, all sitting members of Congress are ineligible for re-election

The 26th amendment (granting the right to vote for 18 year-olds) took only 3 months & 8 days to be ratified! Why? Simple! The people demanded it. That was in 1971...before computers, e- mail, cell phones, etc.

Of the 27 amendments to the Constitution, seven (7) took 1 year or less to become the law of the land...all because of public pressure.

How Do I Make My Girlfriend Climax With Me Inside Her?

Hello Dr. Betty

I've been with my girl now for about 7 years, we are both very open about sex and we do enjoy to try "new stuff". However, the only way she can really cum is by rubbing her legs together very tightly.

She says it feels a lot better if I have a finger inside, and rub against the front wall (what people refer to as G spot I guess). But I would like to know if there's a way for us to have her climax with me inside her?

It's still good for her when we have sex, it just can't give her an orgasm. I always said that if we do it for a longer period of time, she would get there but she doesn't believe me so we never did... She loves to masturbate, and using a vibrator is working really well for her.. It's better than what I can offer sadly:(

My Period Comes When I Have Sex

Ok. I am in a long distance relationship and when I do get to see my man I normally visit him a few days before my period to be safe. My periods are normal and usually on time but I've noticed since I've met him that the day after I first have sex with him my period comes on. And this weekend it came on a week early. Why does this happen? He is not hurting me. I am thoroughly enjoying it. I have multiple orgasms but things have had to be cut short now because my cycle starts usually the next day. So back to this weekend, it came on immediately after sex but then went away, we didn't have sex the next day and my period had seemed to stop, but the day after we had sex again and immediately my period came on. Does anyone have any idea why this might be happening? Thanks in advance.

It Freaks Me Out When Masturbation Becomes Too Good

Submitted by Betty Dodson

I am 19 years old and I have had 5 sexual partners. I'm pretty sure I've never had an orgasm. I started masturbating when I found your videos on YouTube two weeks ago. I got a vibrator and lubricant, and when i start, it feels good, but it gets to a point when it feels too good, i get scared, and i stop. Am I doing something wrong? Is there anyway I can stop my mind from freaking out?

Thanks a ton!

I want to feel like I can satisfy him without it but he always tells me he can't and has bever been ab le to orgasm from oral sex. No matter how hard I try and use different techniques, nothing seems to work for him. Pleeeeeease help! 

Dear A,

I Can't Orgasm By Myself or During Sex

Hello Betty,

I'm 17 years old and im a woman. I recently discovered your videos and I find them very informative and I just love them. SO I'd like to say THANK YOU!

I have two questions and problems I'd like to have your help with. My boyfriend of a year and a half and I have been sexually active and my problem is, I've never reached orgasm... I dont have access to toys because of my difficult age of 17 when you have to be 18 to buy them. I don't know how to achieve an orgasm, I dont know what one feels like, and because I dont know what one feels like, I wouldn't know how to identify when and if I have one. I'd really like your help or if you could give me some tips on what I should do or think about.

I Feel Guilty After Watching Porn

Hello Betty!
I am fifteen years old and I am a huge fan of your videos. You are absolutely fabulous! I am going to get straight to the point though. I will occasionally watch porn and have been masturbating since I was young. I feel so guilty after watching and doing it. Is it normal for girls my age to watch porn? And what can I do to stop feeling so guilty? Thank you for all that you do!

The Revolution Will Not be Televised

I am very grateful to have lived long enough to see this World Wide Revolution. In the sixties I identified as a sexual revolutionary. I had my first exhibition of erotic art in 1968. The show was basically ignored by the media even though it was a first of it's kind.

I Want to be Able to F*ck a Man at My Whim & Orgasm

Dear Dr. Betty,

I recently bought and read your book: "Sex for One" and I loved it and I am practicing masturbation on a regular basis. I had written you before, I had a lot of sexual issues to the fact that I was raped when I was 6 years old and one of my other issues was an overly-invasive narcissistic mother. When I was a child, she caught me masturbating and made me feel terrible about it, she tried to "catch" me all of the time and made it impossible for me to achieve orgasm. I was having orgasms until the age of 19, until we had to share a bedroom in a small apartment due to money problems and she kept trying to "catch" me in the shower, while I slept in the living room, etc.

How Do I Make My Boyfriend "Feel Good"

I am 17 and my boyfriend is 18. We have been going out for about 9 months now, but we haven't done that much sexually. But recently we have gotten to being in our undies and kissing and him petting me over the underwear. It feels really good and he seems to quite enjoy doing this. I feel kinda bad because he is trying to do things to me but I'm too nervous to do things back and I don't really know what I can do back and he is always asking if there is anything I want to try (not sure if he means back to him or for him to do to me or both) but I don't know because I've never done any of this sort of sexual thing before.

20 Years Old and No Sex Drive

Hello Betty,

I am a 20 year old female and for the last 4 months my interest or sex drive has jumped ship and I don't know what to do to get it back. I have tried masturbating, using my vibrator and even just trying to have sex with my very supportive longtime boyfriend, but nothing seems to work. I don't get horny or even excited when my boyfriend suggests having some fun. I used to be the most sexual person in my group of friends and now it feels like I have zero sexual energy. How can I go back to enjoying sex?

Wish me luck as I continue to try,


Dear K,
