Betty Dodson, Ph.D. (born August 24 1929) is an American sex educator, author, and artist. She is widely known as a pioneer in women's (and to a somewhat lesser extent men's) sexual liberation, having sold more than 1 million copies of her first book, Sex for One. Much of her fame has come from her work not only advocating masturbation, but conducting workshops for more than 30 years in which groups of about 10 or more women would talk, explore their own bodies, and masturbate together. She even hosted a public access cable television program in New York City in the early 70's, and conducted her workshop - a dozen or so nude women discussing and practicing masturbation, on TV!
