I like to think of myself as your "BAD" Aunt Betty. "Betty Anne Dodson" is my full name; hence, "BAD" Aunt Betty and "BAD" Media LLC.
I'm an artist, author, and PhD sexologist and I've been one of the principal voices for women's sexual pleasure and health for over three decades.
I had the first one-woman show of erotic art in ’68 in nyc followed by three others - I produced and presented the first feminist slide show of vulvas at the 1973 NOW Sexuality Conference here in New York where I introduced the electric vibrator as a pleasure device. For 25 years, I ran my Bodysex workshops.
My first book, Liberating Masturbation: A Meditation on Selflove (’74) became a feminist classic. Sex for One (’87) sold over a million copies. Orgasms for Two (’02) is all about how to have an orgasm during partnersex. My Sistine Chapel is my memoir Sex By Design. It's my life story and details my experiences during America's Sexual Revolution, the women's movement and my feminist sexual activism.
