Bettina Arndt is the author of the sensational book The Sex Diaries that made waves across the country. Her after-dinner speech on Why Wives Would Rather Eat Chocolate – the plight of Australia’s sex-starved men – wows audiences everywhere as they respond to her funny, informative take on this controversial topic.

In hot demand, Bettina presents the perfect topic for a light, informative after-dinner presentation, lunchtime entertainment, or a keynote speech. After over thirty-five years on the professional speaking circuit, Bettina Arndt knows all about entertaining and challenging audiences. She attracts audiences to events that are struggling and, as a closing presenter, she’s the draw card to keep them there until the end of the day. After all, what better topic to keep them in their seats than sex?

Bettina spent the first ten years of her career teaching medical students at both the University of NSW and Sydney and talking to other professional groups, both here and overseas. She has spoken to audiences all over the world and is renowned for her engaging, humorous and informative talks.

About Bettina Arndt:

It was sex that made Bettina Arndt famous. As one of Australia’s first sex therapists and editor of Forum magazine, Bettina spent ten years talking about sex on television and radio. Bettina has taught medical students, doctors and other professionals and talked endlessly about this fascinating subject to audiences all over Australia and overseas.

By the 1980s she’d had enough of a good thing. She gave up sex – professionally speaking – and moved onto writing and talking about broader social issues and particularly the changing relationships between men and women.

In the mid 80’s Bettina spent five years in New York writing a syndicated newspaper column, returning to Australia in late 1991 to work as a feature writer for many of our major newspapers and magazines. As a respected social commentator she was invited onto government advisory committees covering issues from family law to childcare and ageing.

But after nearly twenty years writing and talking about social issues, she returned to her first love and wrote a best-selling book about sex. The Sex Diaries looks at how couples manage their sex supply, dealing with their ups and downs in sexual desire. Ninety-eight couples kept diaries for her, writing about their daily negotiations over sex. Who feels like having sex? Who doesn’t? And how do they cope if one wants it more than the other? The Sex Diaries received nation-wide publicity when launched at the National Press Club in March 2009 with Bettina appearing on Rove, the ABC’s Q&A and Lateline, The Today Show and other morning television plus radio across the country. Her controversial solutions to the battle between sex-starved men and reluctant women continue to make waves.

Bettina Arndt also now works as a dating coach, giving advice to men and women on online dating, helping with writing their profiles and increasing their chances of meeting ‘the right one’.
