The Goddess

Betty drew this piece when she decided to start her own consciousness raising groups which would later become her Bodysex workshops. This is a self-portait - without knowing it she drew each vulva style behind her image and her right hand is in the Buddhist pose for teaching.

Betty is describing her workshops as "physical and sexual consciousness raising".  She coined the term "Bodysex" in 1975.

Betty is using "Bodysex" to describe her consciousness raising workshops.  Is there any doubt in her belief that the clitoris is a woman's primary sex organ?
