Thank you, John, for sending me the link to Group Sex: Is it 'Life Art' or A Sign Something is Wrong.  This article ran in 1971 at the onset of the Sexual Revolution.  Betty is interviewed and quoted.  Here are some of my favorite Bettyisms:

When I got divorced in 1965, I decided to find out everything I could about sexuality,” she said. “I set about letting go of jealousy and possessive feelings, and understanding I could love more than one person. It was the most important thing I ever did.”

I love finding anything vintage Betty Dodson.  Lucy Place tweeted this pic from Playboy magazine announcing their New Sex Lifestyles Panel...what a find. 

Dodson: Everybody's first orgy is mind-boggling.  I remember mine.  Half of me was thrilled, half terrified, I didn't know the social rules.  What should I wear? How should I get out of what I wear?

Dear Betty,

I am a 36 year old single woman who is about to attend her first sexparty this saturday. I found out about this private party via online-dating and being very curious and having embarqued on a sexual adventure trip half a year ago I am really looking forward to this event… BUT I am also kind of nervous and besides worries on what to wear of course my worst nightmare is that nobody would want to make out with me!

Here's the cut and pastes from a facebook discussion between me and my online friend, Mariah, on how challenging it is to make a threesome happen and settling a debate she was having with a friend on what constitutes group sex:

Mariah: Just read Part 3 of your Threesome blog post. Hot stuff! I think I'm
coming to NYC in October. Yay! Would love to meet face to face if time
permits. I'll let you know more deets when I have them. Hope all is
well

Threesomes & Moresomes: The Video Edition

Very few women at the sex parties were having orgasms. After the men were petered out, the women would all end up in Betty's bedroom playing with vibrators. That got Betty thinking about Bodysex workshops. Something had to change...

Non-possessive Sex

Hedonism is the philosophy that pleasure is the highest good.  The year was 1966 and the sexual revolution had begun....listen to Betty describe her first orgy, how new panties are a must, and why we fantasize about Centaurs (half man/half horse).

Beyond Serial Monogamy

Christmas Day 1966: After we exchanged gifts, I noticed Grant was staring off into empty space, a sign he was about to sink into one of his morbid depressions. To alter his mood, I asked if he'd like to make love before dinner. Instead of responding to my offer of sex, he began talking about how my gifts presented a problem. I'd given him my first pussy self portrait beautifully framed along with an old fashioned Victorian photo album with pictures he'd taken of us having sex with a Polaroid camera. He said the album would have to be hidden and he'd never be comfortable hanging my genital portrait. After all, he had to think of his maid's feelings as well as friends who visited.

The Ethical Slut

Dossie and I met back in the early seventies when I was bicoastal living in San Francisco part time. Our commune on Castro Steet rotated betweeen four to five people who were committed singles. As long as we lived together we agreed to avoid sexually pairing off. Dossie came to a few our communal sex parties. I remember her as a beautiful tiny faun with a mop of curly hair who loved sex. l'm glad to see her book coming out again. The information is pertenent for everyone who realizes that the limitations of monogamy doesn't work for everyone.

An underground hit for years in sexually experimental circles, Dossie Easton's and Janet W. Hardy's The Ethical Slut: A Practical Guide to Polyamory, Open Relationships and Other Adventures makes the case that we should all enjoy an occasional threesome, foursome, and moresome with friends and strangers. "We believe it's OK to have sex with anybody you love," Easton and Hardy write, "and we believe in loving everybody."

"Many people find their partner advertising unbeknownst to them; people set up anonymous dates and it turns out to be their spouse who answered the ad."

"Screwing Their Brains Out": Plato's Retreat and the Rise of Swinging

Submitted by Betty Dodson

The review in Alternet by Cynthia Fuchs with the revealing title, "Screwing Their Brains Out": Plato's Retreat and the Rise of Swinging showed how little she and most other people know today about the Swinging Seventies.

First off, adult group sex took many forms and none of them were anything like Woodstock that was about music, youth and pot. A few young couples got naked and enjoyed having sex together but it was NOT consenting adult couples having sex in a group setting.

Too many uptight folks today want to make group sex out to be some kind of social sickness or that only pathetic people took part in it. But what's been going on under the Bush admin and the Religious Right is today's real sickness with the repression of sexual expression that damages our youth with misinformation.

It's okay by me that my last name was left out of the film and her article. During my extensive interview, I told the film makers I went to Plato's only once and didn't much like it. My favorite sex parties were by invitation only with a core group of my friends. That way the mix of people was by design more like a successful dinner party. But I have no gripe with the suburban out-of-shape married couples who got to have some sexual fun at Plato's. I have always been a democratic fuck and some of these people were hotter than the so-called "pretty people" who were brittle and way too self-conscious to let go and enjoy recreational sex.

Want Boyfriend to Have Same Room Sex

Hi Betty/Carlin,

My boyfriend and I are both nudists in our 20's, we go around the house naked all the time, go to nudist swims, nudist resorts, nude beaches and socialize in the nude at friends homes etc. Several of our nudists friends like to play with each other, fuck or masturbate in front of us when we are having a naked visit. I think this is great! I enjoy watching them do this in the open and want to do the same in front of them. I usually end up only masturbating. He'll play with my cunt a bit with his hand and fondle my tits however doesn't seem to get into it. Is there anything I can do or say to get him to open up? Normally he is all over me. Is fucking/masturbating in front of others unusual and I'm out of whack?

The Rise and Fall of Plato's Retreat by Kurt Loder

By the mid-1970s, the hippie "free love" notions of the '60s had seeped out into the suburbs. Suddenly there were "swingers": men in the most alarming period finery - disco chains, gull-wing collars, crotch-strangling bell-bottom trousers - and the women who loved them (who loved many of them, in fact, sometimes all at once). These people would gather on weekends to form flesh piles at one another's homes. They had their own rites and recognition signals, their own publications. Finally, one of these plebian hedonists, a burly New York meat wholesaler named Larry Levenson, decided the time had come to take swinging public. Well, heterosexual swinging, that is - the gay bathhouse scene was already in full rut. So in 1977 Levenson rented a hotel basement on the Upper West Side of Manhattan that had once housed a famous gay pleasure dome called the Continental Baths (where Bette Midler launched her career, backed by Barry Manilow in a bath towel), and turned it into Plato's Retreat, America's first straight public sex club. For better and then, later, for worse, things would never be the same again.

"What are you doing?" Fascinated, Tim watched me wriggle out of my panties and stuff them into the potted plant beside the door.

"Intuition.  I have a feeling that we're more likely to get this job if I arrive sans underwear."

A Table For Four, Please...

Arrived at my friends' party this past Saturday night at twenty-three minutes past start time. I was wearing black jeans, grey turtleneck shirt, a black leather suit jacket, and an Under Armor heat gear form-fitting undershirt. I'd brought a bottle of champaign, strode through the ajar front door, and said hello to an almost empty room. The party hadn't started.

My friends appeared in sophisticated dress. I asked, "Can I help you with anything? They set me to work mincing garlic and putting it together with a half stick of butter. Following that, slicing and toasting bread. People started to arrive. Gradually more people appeared and before I knew it, I was feeling a slight resentment. Just then, a woman came up by my side and offered some help. Then another with curly black hair came up behind me and placed her hands around my stomach. She asked me if I wanted a drink, I said yes, and she returned with champaign. Her hands returned to the front of my stomach. "I love how you feel here. Are you done soon?"
