I Heard the Voice of God: "You Need to Get a Vibrator"

I am a really good liar. I spent most of my life lying.

I lied in middle school when I spent the summer having sleepovers with my best friend.
--Our all-night makeout sessions were just an experiment.

I lied when I stared at the models in Seventeen magazine.
--I was a normal girl interested in fashion.

I lied when I said I was saving myself for marriage.
--I was “picky,” and “shy.”

I lied in high school when I decided I should not have female friends.
--They were dramatic and annoying.

I lied in college when I said I loved the boyfriend I wasn't attracted to.
--He’s a good guy and I want a family.

I Needed to Get Back to Our Bodysex Routine

For me, this past weekend's Bodysex workshop marked a shift in my personal journey. Everything seemed to come together...ground...then open up again. And that's the genius of these groups. We grow as we facilitate. There is no end if we keep our hearts and minds open to the experience.

The last three Bodysex seasons have been a challenge. I had Grayson in the back room with a babysitter - then he graduated to home care with daddy but there was so much more to coordinate: breast pumping, cooking food for the weekend dinners, and rushing home to relieve my Husband. At a certain point, all babies want mommy and I was conscious of that fact. Attachment parenting and breast feeding on demand isn't for the faint hearted.

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.

Pleasure is Our Divinity

Since I became a mom, Betty and I don't get to spend as much time together. The workshops have become the best way for us to reconnect. Now that Grayson is 13 months he can stay home happily with Daddy and mommy can have breakfast with Aunt B, catch up, and assist her in the circle.

When Betty and I click, we click. This past workshop was our best. It felt like we were dancing across the floor anticipating each other's movements, effortlessly gliding through the steps. We ran our third certification workshop; 7 women from Spain, Austria, the West Coast, Boston and NYC will go on to run their own Bodysex groups.

This is Love & This is What Bodysex is About

Colorado experienced their first Bodysex workshop a week ago. I am deeply honored to have taken our group of eight women on this magical journey. The weekend was a powerful and bonding experience for the group and we all left with open hearts, feeling deeply nourished.

The healing transformation for the women attending was beautiful to witness. There were lots of tears throughout the workshop, women releasing different things, some of them feeling and releasing emotions they had hidden inside for years. We cried our cathartic tears together and also laughed much in celebration. When each woman left, she gave me a long hug and we gazed in each others eyes. I felt my own heart leap as they expressed pure gratitude and I could see a new confidence and openess in their eyes.

Liberated From Our Own Fear Our Presence Automatically Liberates Others

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.

Hello Betty,

I hardly even know what to say to you Betty after this experience. The words flood in because it was one of the most significant experiences of life, a powerful healing and transformative - beyond my wildest dreams - circle, and my greatest personal accomplishment yet. All I know is that I am FILLED to the brim with awe for this work you have created and YOU. What a fucking big clit you have to have created this powerful and bold work and then promote it and bring it into the world!!

My Sexual Awakening Began with Myself & I Fell in Love

As a 36 year old mother of 5, I haven’t always been in a place where I embraced pleasure. For years I felt shame in my body and enjoyed sex but thought it was more for the other than it was for me.

No one had ever told me that sex could be just as much about me and my pleasure as it was about my partner’s. Even though it felt good, I was ashamed of that and held back parts of myself so as to not go too far with it. I didn’t think that I deserved it.

These Nine Women are Going to Change the World

This past weekend we had our first bodysex certification workshop. Nine women will hold their own bodysex workshops using the "Betty Dodson method" to help women overcome negative body image and pleasure anxiety. They hail from Israel, the Czech Republic, Mexico, Canada, San Francisco, Colorado, and Texas. Two women are in their 20's, two are in their 30's, three are in their 40's, one is in her 50's, and one is in her 60's. And the majority of the women are mothers (and me as a mom-to-be).
