Media & Resources

After over thirty years writing for Australian newspaper and magazines, Bettina has a wealth of material for you to read. A selection of her early writing was collected into a series of books. If you hunt the second-hand lists, you might even find Bettina Arndt’s Guide to Lovemaking – a collection of very sexy articles from the magazine Forum, which she edited back in the 1970s.

Bettina ran Forum with her husband Dennis Minogue from a shed in their backyard and Forum covers often featured their friends – and anyone else they could rope into doing a free shot. Below is a classic example, with a grumpy Dennis shown in his wonderful Morgan and the young Bettina’s fetching pins.

After this she published a series of collections of the columns and articles she wrote for newspapers in the 1980s and 1990s. It was only recently that she finally retired from full-time journalism and had time to research and write a whole book – The Sex Diaries, which became an international best-seller. This was followed by What Men Want – her book about why sex means so much to men.

You’ll also be able to read a selection of her favourite newspaper and magazine articles and watch videos of some of her recent talks. Plenty of bedtime reading for you to enjoy.
