Autobiographhical Sketch
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. Carlin and I relaunched our bodysex workshops (we hold 3 in the Fall and 3 in the Spring) and I continue to do my private sessions with women which is a bodysex workshop for one.

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 My Romantic Love Wars: A Sexual Memoir. It's my life story and details my experiences during America's Sexual Revolution, the women's movement and my feminist sexual activism.

I've authored numerous articles on the subject of women’s sexual pleasure and orgasm. In 1994, I earned my PhD in clinical sexology. Carlin and I have presented at conferences for sexual scientists, therapists, and psychologists.  In 2011, I was given the public service award from SSSS's (Society for the Scientific Study of Sexuality) and the MASTERS AND JOHNSON AWARD presented by SSTAR (Society for Sex Therapy and Research).  I'm thrilled to be joining the ranks of these accomplished academics.
