MSNBC’s Krystal Ball and mic.com Senior Editor Liz Plank talk to Jewish Orthodox sex counselor Bat Sheva Marcus about how she teaches strictly observant women to find sexual pleasure within their religious boundaries.
Bat Sheva Marcus wrote her dissertation on women and vibrator use while earning her Doctor of Philosophy in human sexuality from the Institute of Advanced Study of Human Sexuality. She also has a Master’s in public health from the same institution. She is a licensed social worker with a Master’s degree from Columbia University.
Dr. Marcus is a founder of the Medical Center for Female Sexuality and has served as its director since the launch of the Center in 2000. Although in recent years her work has focused on the area of female sexuality, in the past she has also worked as the executive director of not-for-profit institutions and corporations, medical practices and laboratories. She is a frequent guest on television and radio and has lectured both nationally and overseas on a wide variety of women’s issues.
