Playboy on the Case of the Missing Orgasm

Shawna Kenney interviewed Betty and several other big "sex" names about the "ramifications of men and women repeatedly seeing that all it takes is a good 60-second pounding to make a woman come."

Congratulations on a wonderful piece, on Playboy online no less, addressing the lack of female sexual pleasure and orgasm in the culture. I especially love Betty's quote:

"Really real female orgasms are particularly hard to show in movies (both of the mainstream and adult variety), where time is money, explains Betty Dodson, the 84-year-old sexologist whose books and films helped pioneer sex-positive feminism. "Most guys can get erect almost immediately while it takes many woman far longer to get turned on. Hollywood and porn must keep the action moving quickly."

Orgasms take time and I think that's the point. I don't want to orgasm in 2 minutes. I want to spend 40-60 minutes building up sex energy and feeling my orgasm start in the soles of my feet and travel up my body.

The right partner understands that pleasure is, in and of itself, a commitment.

Editor in Chief & Keeper of All Things Betty Dodson

Well said Betty!  No wonder everyone feels under pressure to make each other have orgasms and no wonder everyone feels sexually frustrated and lacking in love!  Whatever happened to intimacy, eh?  I love reading your stuff.  You always make tremendous sense and I just wish everyone could learn it in school.  Hugs xx

Bravo Betty!

Thank you for being a formidable voice for our sex......goodness knows getting a message that provocative into Playboy no less, is an astonishing feat! I dare swear some of their diehard readers will find that most illuminating...we can only hope, right? :)

Bravo again!
