Betty's memoir is the story of one woman's struggle to liberate female sexuality while enjoying her own. In the 70's as the feminist movement evolved focusing on various platform issues, equal pay, voter registration, Betty latched on to sexual liberation as a symbol for self empowerment.
Realizing that so many women weren't enjoying sex she asked, "how could women ever be truly equal if they were reliant on men for their sexual satisfaction." She quickly became the leader of the sex positive feminist movement and the rest is history.
The memoir chronicles her 40-year career as a feminist including:
· Her career as a fine artist mounting the first one-woman show of erotic art in 1968.
· Her experiences with group sex during the Sexual Revolution.
· Her historic vulva slide show that premiered at NOW's 1973 Sexuality Conference.
· Her infamous Bodysex workshops - teaching 1,000s of women to take charge of their own orgasms for 25 years.
· Her introduction of the electric vibrator in 1973 to the American woman as a pleasure device.

This is an incredibly honest accounting of Betty's challenge to prudish attitudes towards sex that may well underlie so much of what ails society. Hypocrisy in regard to experiencing pleasure is one of the hallmarks of our struggling civilization. Where would the controls of the patriarchal churches of the world be if everyone were free to enjoy their own lives and their own bodies? Betty confronts the hypocrisy that surrounds our attitudes toward sex head-on and in so doing has liberated countless women as she guided them to discover pleasure for them selves. Above all, she dared explore in directions that will not be for all of us but which nevertheless defined her journey into self-awareness. Her story is not for prudes but neither it is pornographic.
This is the story of an enormously courageous woman who ventured into the hidden world of sensuality and here she shares her doubts and fears and joy and success. She always had one goal in mind; to help liberate her fellow human beings from the bonds of sexual repression. Some readers might be surprised at how far she was willing to venture on her journey, but in order to make a difference in this world one cannot affect the inertia of society as a whole without pulling very hard to create a stir. What we wait for next is for this remarkable woman to admit and reveal to the word at large that beside being a pioneer in the exploration of human sexuality she is also a great artist and her paintings and drawings speak further volumes as to the passion for life that resides within her.
