“Ahh, women’s orgasm… What do we typically read about it? It’s that moment of climax and release that eludes so many women. Some women fake it, and some simply do without. Some women have multiple orgasms, they say. Autobiography of an Orgasm turns all of that on its head. This book is thoughtful, personal, poignant and surprising. It will give you a great many answers, but much more important, it will show you that you’ve been asking the wrong questions. Betsy’s quest to “feel more” took her around the world, showed tremendous courage, and reaped rewards that went far beyond that fleeting moment that most of us think of as orgasm.”

One of my favorite movie scenes is towards the end of Harold and Maude when Harold presents Maude with a ring. She admires the ring, looks at him lovingly and then throws the ring in a lake. “There,” Maude says. “Now I’ll always know where it is.”

What is the story you yearn to read? The one that could help you make sense of your life. It’s probably the one you need to write.

My first book, Autobiography of an Orgasm, took two years to write, but that was because I spent twenty-one of those months writing a different book. The original book I was working on was about my life and spiritual path as I travelled between the US and Zimbabwe, and it included a very short passage about a sensual encounter with a man in Africa.

“I am reading your wonderful book and feel compelled to reach out to you. I am 45 and just beginning the journey of healing from a past that is very similar to yours. I share so many of the same experiences as you – it’s interesting to hear my story in your story: early abuse by a neighbor, lack of boundaries, abortion, lack of sexual zeal, divorce, lack of emotional and physical feeling, being disconnected from orgasm, faking it, etc. I’m sure many other women share these experiences, too…”

I quietly released my first book, Autobiography of an Orgasm, in November of 2014. I self-published with no budget for media or PR.

They didn’t think the book aligned with their corporate image, which was ironic, because their website oozes sex appeal.
