Mutual Masturbation by Betty Dodson




I can't ignore official masturbation month on The Seduction of Venus, so here is a fun piece (dedicated to Scarlett Knight), done in chalk, by American artist and sex-positive feminist Betty Dodson (b. 1929).  This would normally be called mutual masturbation, but of course, that would be a contradictory term and Dodson rightly refers to it, although less catchily, as 'mutual manual genital stimulation'.  Produced for a planned but unpublished pillow book in the nineteen seventies.
