Betony Vernon is an American-born designer/sexual anthropologist/author that lives in Paris. She holds a Bachelors degree in Art History with a minor in Metalsmithing from Virginia Commonwealth University, and a Masters degree in Industrial Design from Domus Academy, Milan. Her work has been included in a number of international exhibitions from the Victoria and Albert Museum in London to the Triennale, Milan. She has designed for several brands, including Missoni, Gianfranco Ferré, Alexander Wang and Fornasetti. In 2002, her own collection “Paradise Found - Fine Erotic Jewellery” became her primary focus and the interface for what she describes as her “mission”: to empower women and men to enjoy and share greater pleasure. She holds conferences for educational institutions like The European Institute of Design and Domus Academy in Milan. She also teaches ”Sexual Well-Being” and “Bettering Your Sexual Skills” Salons for individuals, couples and groups. Through the experience of private consulting and public speaking, she realized that she must reach a wider public with the intent to broaden self-esteem, health and well-being, especially around the issues of body acceptance and the pleasures of sex. In 2008 she co-produced and presented “le Boudoir” which comprised 7 didactic cameos for MTV, Italy. Vernon's first book ‘The Boudoir Bible - The Uninhibited Sex Guide for Today’ was published by Rizzoli (NY)) and is available where fine books are sold internationally. Published by Robert Laffont, the french edition of the Boudoir Bible will be released Oct 17, 2013.
