Self Loving




60 minutes

Betty Dodson, artist, author, and Ph.D. sexologist has been teaching women sexual skills since the early seventies. Her first book, Liberation Masturbation (’74) was a feminist classic. Sex for One (’87) became a trade paperback classic with a revised edition (’96) that has been translated into 14 languages. Her latest book Orgasms for Two (’02) continues her sex positive message

“We are ten women, ages 28 to 60, interacting in the nude. Accepting and loving our bodies is our first step toward sexual liberation. WE discover we are not alone in our search for sexual expression as we support one another to explore pleasure creatively. While engaging in pleasure rituals designed to enhance sexual self knowledge, we learn to play again. Positive images of each other’s sexual response inspire us to take the next step on our sexual and spiritual path.

Forming a circle, we practice different breathing patterns to increase our energy. We experiment with different positions and pelvic movements, using electric vibrators for clitoral stimulation. The erotic finale is a celebration of selfloving filled with authentic orgasms. Group massage follows, giving us relaxation and sensual touch without any sexual demand. Each woman experiences the gentle hands of four others simultaneously, with everyone both giving and receiving unconditional love. In the closing circle, we chant with a unified voice and release our orgasmic energy.” -BD
