How Do I Get Over Sexual Guilt?
(23.Apr. 23:51)

Hello Dr Betty

My name is M - I'm a 21 yr old male and I have been suffering from severe guilt since I was 20 when I experienced my first sexual intercourse, but it has a twist, I lost my virginity to a woman who was 38 and married to a man, I didn't know them at all we met over the net, she liked me and I really wanted to have sex so we decided to meet at my house when my parents where away and she came over during her work hours so her husband does not suspect anything. I loved it and, for me, it was the most wonderful experience at the time.

I Look at Myself with the Intent to Give & Receive Love
(23.Apr. 23:48)

All relationships are mirrors. If you feel your partner is falling short it invariably means you are too.

Mirrors. The world is a hall of mirrors. When some random person really gets under my skin and on my nerves it almost invariably means they are reflecting a dysfunctional behaviour that I share with them. It's not them it's me. Well its both of us but I'm just going to own my shit and you can own yours. So the 'annoying' behaviour in others causes me agitation because I'm refusing to acknowledge that behaviour in myself.

Why Does an Orgasm Feel So Good?
(22.Apr. 03:31)

Dear Dr. Betty,

I have been looking around google to try and find something that tells me exactly what goes on in your body to make you feel that climax sensation. I have had no luck, for one website told me that the more orgasms a women has, the more cum builds up in some sack near your bladder, and eventually needs to drain itself through, in simplified way, "squirting". So yea... no luck.

What goes on internally? what is that blood rushing sensation in your clit and why does it feel so good?

Dear D,

I Was Completely in My Animal Self
(21.Apr. 01:55)

I thought this beautiful post by Kristen Tea about her labor experience was the right way to mark this holiday of life and rebirth. Here is my favorite passage:

"I was completely in my animal self now– moaning, Om-ing, gyrating my hips and breathing deep...I felt my body opening, and I embraced the non-stop rushes. My husband {Chad} continued to move in and out of the bathroom, removing the shower head, hooking up the hose, and stopping to tell me 'You’re beautiful.'

What Does Sexual Leadership Look Like in Partner Sex?
(20.Apr. 01:27)

Dear Betty and Carlin,

Thank you so much for your transformative work. I am so grateful. What does sexual leadership look like in partner sex when the woman learns so much from your work that she outgrows her role as an active participant and now wants to take a leadership role in sex with her husband?

I Want to Live in a Country With Homoerotic Art Stamps
(19.Apr. 00:16)

Finland just released these official country stamps featuring the work of homoerotic artist Tom of Finland.  When discussing his process, he admitted that it he doesn't get an erection when he's working then he knows it's no good. 

Can you imagine a Mapplethorpe stamp being released here in the US?  Fucking forget it.  I probably can't even link this image to Facebook without getting a warning. 

And we wonder why the rest of the world kicked out their Puritans and sent them here. 

It's Ok to Have Naughty Fantasies & Know My Body Better Than a Man
(19.Apr. 00:07)


I just wanted to tell you that I'm 28 years old and up until I started watching your YouTube videos I thought there was something wrong with me, turns out it's ok not to orgasm whilst having penetration sex, it's ok to have naughty fantasies and it's ok to know MY body better than A man will know my body and it's not slutty (used in a derogatory way) to have anal sex.. ITS ALL GOOD!!!

Thank you, you have made my self esteem around sex blossom, so to you and carlin I cannot thank you enough for making me feel ok about my self!

Much love and gratitude,
