Betty Dodson with Carlin Ross {featured resource}

Known for her work to empower women sexually, Betty Dodson (b. 1929) today runs Betty Dodson with Carlin Ross: Sex Information Online with the thirty-something Carlin Ross who left her career in law to devote herself to sex information. In addition to their own texts and podcasts, their website also includes the posts of several sex informed guest bloggers, each with their own specific profile and expertise; a sex column featuring Dodson's practical advice to readers; a reader forum; a book and video shop; galleries and more.

Betty Dodson with Carlin Ross is an interactive and comprehensive website with both shorter updates and longer features addressing a wide range of topics on sex and relationship, many in response to readers' questions and current news and trends, covering several topics: orgasm, intercourse, sex positions, anal play, birth control, abortion, body image, cross dressing, menstruation and sex, disability and sex, female ejaculation and the G-spot, sex after menopause, oral sex, porn, sex during pregnancy and motherhood, STDs and sexual health, sex toys, sex play, relationship issues, and more.

Recognizing early on the need for more attention to women's genitalia and masturbation, New York-based Dodson hosted regular masturbation workshops for women in the seventies and eighties. Currently she is not offering group sex coaching, but she does still offer private sex coaching sessions for women. Her first book, Sex for One: The Joy of Selfloving (1974; also published under Selflove and Orgasm and Liberating Masturbation), is a feminist classic. Orgasms for Two (2002) is devoted to partner sex.

Among Dodson's sexological DVDs are Self-Loving: Portrait of a Woman’s Sexuality Seminar (1991), Celebrating Orgasm: Women's Private Selfloving Sessions (1997), and Orgasmic Women: 13 Selfloving Divas (2006).
