A documentary on Betty Dodson's Bodysex Groups and how she taught women about their bodies and their sexuality.
Betty Dodson's Bodysex Group is a documentary on the monthly workshops Betty Dodson PhD ran from her New York City apartment for over 25 years.
Betty's "bodysex" workshops were an outgrowth of the consciousness raising groups that launched the feminist movement. Celebrities, dignitaries, career women and housewives took this workshop to better understand their bodies and their sexuality.
Each "bodysex" group was made up of 13 women who would join Betty in "the circle" to answer 2 questions: how do you feel about your body and how do you feel about your orgasm. This 2-day workshop included nudity to end genital shame and instruction on how to achieve orgasm.
Thousands of women took part in this healing ritual - Betty's goal was to liberate female sexuality. In the 1980's Betty shot a bodysex group with a hand-held VHS camera. It's still our best selling dvd.
This production will save Betty's revolutionary work for the ages.
