Betony Vernon

Daring, provocative and boundary-defying, Betony Vernon is an American- born designer, sexual anthropologist and author.

Betony's design work has been included in a number of international exhibitions from the Victoria and Albert Museum in London to the Triennale Design Museum, Milan.  She also teaches ”Sexual Well-Being” and “Bettering Your Sexual Skills” Salons for individuals, couples and groups. In 2008 she co-produced and presented “le Boudoir” which comprised 7 didactic cameos for MTV, Italy.

Rizzoli International published Vernon’s first book The Boudoir Bible, The Uninhibited Sex Guide for Today in February 2013. The tome is currently available in 5 languages. Vernon’s ultimate goal, both as author and designer, is to “dismantle the pleasure taboo.”
