Hi! I’m Laura
I help women explore their sexual pleasure and heal body shame
in a safe and supportive space.
Taking a Bodysex® Workshop started my evolutionary journey to discover more sexual pleasure and fall truly in love with myself. Today, I am self-full and comfortable in my own skin. It’s now my mission to carry that gift forward.
What is Bodysex?
- Bodysex® is a process developed by the legendary sex educator, Betty Dodson®, PH. D.
- Bodysex® Workshops are designed to support women with compassion as they connect to their bodies, heal shame, and move fully into pleasure
- The workshops include specific rituals, such as Genital Show and Tell, Vulva Massage, and Erotic Recess
- Every woman heals herself through the Bodysex® rituals, sharing in the circle, and self-pleasure
- The intimacy that is inherent in Bodysex® often creates a feeling of sisterhood among those who have shared this space together
Our culture hinders every woman’s
normal sexual development
The natural process of genital exploration is typically shut down early for girls. As a result, women are disconnected from their genitals and physical pleasure.
Masturbation is the foundation of human sexuality.
Girls and women are taught that our bodies must fit an unrealistic ideal
Most of us hold shame around the appearance of our genitals
Sex education for girls and young women focuses on reproduction, without any mention of pleasure.
I can hear Betty voice: “It’s a vulva, not a vagina! The vagina is the birth canal only”
We don’t even use the correct words for our sexual anatomy
The clitoris, every woman’s primary sex organ, isn’t commonly recognized as the main source of sexual pleasure
The standard sexual model is that a man “gives” sex, and a women is expected to “receive” what is given and like it. If not, then there must be something wrong with her.
She either feels broken or that she wants too much.
TRUTH: Women have tremendous capacity for sexual pleasure
The clitoris is the only organ that exists exclusively for pleasure
The clitoral glans has about 8,000 nerve endings, more than twice as on the head of a penis
The clitoris does not lose its erection after orgasm, making it possible for multiple orgasms
But women aren’t taught about our anatomy
or encouraged to explore our own pleasure
“Sex is a skill that must be practiced” -Betty Dodson®

My clients say . . .
“Bodysex® is a cocoon where we can all feel free and safe to delve into the self-discovery that we so deserve. The process helps to make us not only feel ok with who we are but to genuinely love ourselves. A Bodysex® circle forever changed the way I feel about loving me.”
Liz, age 50, Bodysex® Workshop
“Being part of the Bodysex® workshop offered me new tools for my ongoing journey to come back into my body as a place of pleasure and possibility. It also gave me a powerful sense that women can and do support each other in finding new ways of being present to themselves, each other, and the world.”
A., age 30’s, Bodysex® Workshop
“The techniques that we learned about this week are really powerful. I had a much deeper and more satisfying orgasm during the Erotic Recess following the video. I’m happy to learn some movements that don’t leave my vulva feeling numb – this is much more pleasurable.”
Joy, age 64, Virtual Bodysex® Workshop
“Virtual Bodysex® has enhanced my sexual pleasure. I have more tools in the tool box – lol!”

Description: Betty Dodson®'s Bodysex® documentary filmed in 2011 gives a peek into a real workshop led by Betty with six other women. It includes group sharing of experiences plus rituals such as Genital Show and Tell and techniques such as Betty’s Rock and Roll Orgasm. You will gain an awareness of female sexuality from a feminist perspective, an understanding of the vulva and pleasure anatomy, and an appreciation for female masturbation and orgasm. This film is explicit and includes nudity, real vulvas, masturbation, and authentic orgasms. You'll learn from other women about female sexuality with openness and honesty. Film length: 1 hour 40 minutes. There will be time afterward for questions and discussion.

It's been almost a year since Betty left the planet on October 31, 2020. I wrote this tribute to be read during her recent memorial at the Museum of Sex in NYC. Betty Dodson® wasn’t my friend. But I was her student even before I knew she was my teacher. When I was a...
Last spring, those of us in who are members of Betty Dodson’s “army of orgasmic women” knew that Betty and Carlin were working on a big secret vulva project. In early July, Carlin contacted me to ask if I’d be willing to share a picture of my vulva for the project:...
I eagerly anticipated this workshop since Betty’s 90th Birthday Retreat at the end of July. The joyful orgasmic energy that flourished within me during those incredible five days of sisterhood was overflowing and I felt anxious to move it forward into the world.As...
