I watched the movie ‘Power & Passion‘ the other night, and became familiar w/ artist, author, and PhD sexologist who has been one of the principal voices for women’s sexual pleasure and health for over three decades, Betty Dodson.
After reading up on her, I came across her response to Eve Ensler’s VDay initiative + the Vagina Monologues. I think what Eve does is shedding awareness through theater/arts/celebrity on the violence that persists in the world still, but Betty’s view of reclaiming sex is a powerful one. She has a book out called ‘Sex For One’ if you want to read more.
“It’s much easier to look at other countries and gasp at their cruel and inhuman sexual practices. It keeps us from having to face our own sexual problems.” – Betty Dodson
