I have a woman’s body and it has been a delight to be in my body all my life. Well, not always every minute have I enjoyed the changes of my body. I have been thin, I have been fat, and in between those two. I have judged it unfairly as I look at past pictures of myself when I thought I was unattractive. I was in “the boxing ring” with my body and looking back I see I could have made better use of my time. I could have had a lot more fun instead of the constant worry about this or that fat roll or impossible cellulite. All that said, I feel and know that, in general, I have enjoyed many aspects of my body.

My teacher Betty Dodson is right when she says, “If you have the ability to throw a great dinner party, then you have the ability, if it is important to you, to create the space for women to gather together and discuss their feelings about their bodies and their orgasms. The women themselves will make it happen.

I’ve been known to give memorable dinner parties so this proved true for me at the three hour event focused on self-generated pleasure I held at Pure Pleasure last night.

I fretted and planned and worried over all the details regarding the beginning, end and middle of what we were going to do, the refreshments, the flowers and the ambience.

My mom, my sister and I have a new and deeper level of closeness now. A year ago I would not at all thought that possible. I felt a wall between us and it would not come down. I had my ideas about sexuality and they had their’s and it was always going to be the case. Nothing more to be said about that.

At first when I told them about the kind of sex education I was so excited about, namely Betty Dodson’s, I picked up from them real fast they thought I had lost my mind. No way were they interested in coming to my house to watch her Bodysex workshop on television with me. Uh huh. Keep that S*&T to yourself they let me know in so many words.

Why I Want to Set The World on Fire About Sex

“If women expressed their vulnerability more we could empower each other and the implications of this are no less than revolutionary.”

Paraphrased from a quote by Willow Allen, resident of Canada

I am an incest survivor. More than that, I am now a thriver. However the road getting to here has been circuitous and rock-strewn.

I am one among throngs of many. I did not know this for a long time. I suffered alone. Because of eventually having the knowledge that I am not alone, I have been on the search much of my life to find an action I could take to help the world and its people be rid of this injustice and the pain it causes for all involved.

I wasn’t looking for what I found when I found Betty, my teacher and mentor. I was looking for something but what I found was different than what I thought I was going to find. Even when I found her it took about a year for me to know what that something was. I don’t mean her. She is as real as they come and a national treasure in my book. “The feminist of all feminists,” to quote Carlin her business partner.

In exploring my journey of how I got to here, a fully orgasmic woman who loves her sexual self completely, and who has a strong desire to help other women become so, if they want it, I start by looking at the past through the lens of an ever widening peephole……..
