Who Actually Led the Sexual Revolution
When I get a google alert for "Betty Dodson", I click on the link with a bit of trepidation. I want Betty's work to be acknowledged and her role to be valued. The Huff Post did her justice listing her as one of the leaders of the sexual revolution:
Need help reaching orgasm during masturbation? You might want to try the Betty Dodson Method. Dodson was an early pioneer of the sex-positive movement that developed in the late 1960s, which pushed women to explore themselves and embrace their sexuality. An early sex educator, she is most well known for her book, Liberating Masturbation: a Meditation on Selflove, which taught women, including women with disabilities, to understand masturbation, a previously taboo subject. Today she is still regularly teaching courses on masturbation in New York.
