Bettina Arndt trained as a clinical psychologist before becoming well known as one of Australia’s first sex therapists. As editor of Forum magazine, she taught medical students, doctors and other professionals and worked in the media educating the public about this fascinating subject.
She then moved on to writing about broader social issues, working as a columnist and feature writer for leading newspapers and magazines. As a respected social commentator she was invited onto government advisory committees covering issues from family law to childcare and ageing.
In 2010 she published the best-selling book, The Sex Diaries, based on research involving couples keeping diaries showing how they negotiate their sex supply. The sequel – What Men Want – was published in late 2010. She is currently enjoying speaking about her new research to audiences across Australia and overseas.
