You can’t deny that Gwyneth Paltrow has done some seriously impressive stuff over the years. She’s won an Academy Award. She’s been one half of the most civil divorce in Hollywood. And, of course, she’s created a global brand based on her love of wellness, Goop, that was conservatively estimated to be worth around $250 million.
What Gwynnie does really, really well though, is getting people talking. The stuff she presents isn’t everyone’s cup of tea and a lot of the products she recommends are certainly VERY unrealistic purchases for plebs like us, but every now and then she pulls out something that we’ve all gotta admit is interesting.
Take her latest Netflix series, The Goop Lab. I bloody loved the whole thing, but the one ep that has set universal tongue-wagging into overdrive is called The Pleasure Is Ours. The third ep of the series. The one everyone needs to watch. The one that shows images of vulvas in their many, many varied forms. The one that shows 90-year-old rockin’ sex expert, Betty Dodson, sit by the bedside of her colleague, Carlin Ross, and coach her through masturbation until she orgasms – right there in front of us all. And it’s fascinating.
Betty has made it her life’s work to ensure women are empowered in their bodies and their sexuality… and she wants to make certain that every single one of us knows how to climax. Whether it’s with a partner or solo, Betty’s method, known as the ‘Rock and Roll Orgasm Technique’ is almost foolproof at getting women off.
If you’ve got no intention of watching Goop Lab but are interested in how Betty’s method works, here’s a run-down on how to do it according to the Editor-in-Chief of dodsonandross.com, Carlin Ross.
“Basically, you’re lying on your back with your legs bent hip distance apart… rock your pelvis forward toward your belly button and squeeze your pc muscle then relax your pc muscle as you roll your pelvis back to the ground. Breathe in while you rock your pelvis forward and squeeze your pc muscle – then exhale as you release your pc muscle and your pelvis back to the ground. It’s a small, subtle movement.
Rock/Squeeze… Relax/Release… Repeat.
Then you add clitoral stimulation and vaginal penetration for total vulva happiness. Don’t be disappointed if it takes some time to learn the steps. Trust me. It’s worth it.”
Here’s Betty and Carlin talking through it on their YouTube channel…
