Betty Dodson – artist, author and PhD sexologist – is a sex-positive feminist and masturbation guru. She published her first book, Liberating Masturbation: A Meditation on Selflove in 1974, which quickly became a cult classic. Since then she has continued to be a pioneering voice in feminist discourse, writing several more books including the bestselling Sex for One (1987), Orgasms for Two (2002), and most recently, My Romantic Love Wars: A Sexual Memoir. She has run her Bodysex workshops for over 25 years in which women explore and discover their sexuality. Currently she runs and edits masturbation site dodsonandross.com with Carlin Ross.
Betty has supplied us with a very thorough 'How to' guide on masturbating for our Sex Issue. In the meantime, we caught up with her to get down and dirty with masturbation, squirting and self-loving.
