Betty Martin: Sexual Surrogacy and Getting to Know Pleasure

In this episode...

Dr. Betty Martin has had her hands on people professionally for over 40 years, first as a Chiropractor and upon retiring from that practice, as a certified Surrogate Partner, Sacred Intimate, and Somatic Sex Educator.

Today on The Soul of Life I speak with Betty about the importance of getting to know your own body and your own sexuality.

Betty Martin's Pleasure and Sensuality Teaching Tool "The Wheel of Consent"

Swing Party Game or Mindfulness?

We talk about the rewards and controversy of sexual surrogacy. While it’s not a mainstream intervention in sex therapy, its one that Betty says is widely misunderstood and can be highly valuable.

Betty shares about one of her favorite exercises, called The Three Minute Game, that helps resolve confusion around giving and receiving pleasure. A swing party game or mindfulness exercise? You decide. 

“My sexuality and eroticism belongs to me. It was such a shock. It made me think, “Who did I think it belonged to [before]?”

– Dr. Betty Martin, author of The Art of Receiving and Giving: The Wheel of Consent.

Dr. Betty Martin is a Chiropractor, a Body Electric School trained Sacred Intimate, Certified Sexological BodyworkerFoundations of Facilitation trainer, and a self-propelled erotic adventurer and intimacy coach. Her new book is The Art of Receiving and Giving: The Wheel of Consent.
