Let’s discover a little bit more about Betty Dodson — 88-year-old sex educator, author, female masturbation coach, indomitable crusader for sex-positivity

In 1965, 35 years old and fresh off a failed and sexually unsatisfying marriage, she embraced the free love movement that was central to the burgeoning sexual revolution. She also began to develop a theory of masturbation as being the basis of all human sexual activity.

You have to state your pleasure.

“You have to state your pleasure” – Dodson clearly admits and this doesn’t strike her as unusual:

“I had a lot of parties here,” – “We’d push the furniture against the wall. I had two double beds side by side and a little couch. The sex was taking place in the back room. I’d have coffee, cookies, cheese, crackers. They’d be socializing. And then somebody might be f*cking over by the fireplace.” – “It was just a natural way to socialize,” she shrugs. “It wasn’t a big f*ckin’ deal, like it is now.”

 

She reserves similar contempt for Jocelyn Elders, the U.S. Surgeon General who was forced to resign in 1994 after saying of masturbation, “I think that it is part of human sexuality, and perhaps it should be taught,” thereby gaining some measure of heroism in certain circles. “Jocelyn Elders didn’t do sh*t.” Some venom now. “She said the word ‘masturbation,’ and I hate that she’s getting all the credit. I’ve been teaching it a lifetime. And nobody wants to talk about that.”

This goes for her “Bodysex” workshops, a mainstay of ‘70s feminist circles she revived in 2013, and the storied sex parties she held here, in the rent-controlled midtown Manhattan condo, she’s lived in for half a century. Bodysex workshops—groups of 10-15 women, sitting in a circle in her living room, exploring their bodies, overcoming genital shame, and learning, with Dodson’s guidance, how to masturbate to orgasm.
