Betony speaks on the themes of design, sexual empowerment and well-being for related conferences, organizations, television and radio programming internationally. She motivates, empowers and charismatically engages her audiences drawing on her multi-facted life experiences and extensive research.

She also conducts seminars for cultural entities and educational institutions such as the European Institute of Design, Domus Academy and l'Ecole des Beaux Arts. In collaboration with trend forecaster Lidewij Edelkoort she spoke at the Fetishism in Fashion conference during M°BA (The Biennale of Fashion in Arnhem)  and  more recently on the importance of female sexual empowerment in Africa for the charity organization  Cash&Rocket 



Since 2001 Betony has been hosting educational salons with the aim of dismantling the pleasure taboo. She began teaching after she realized that her erotic design work could not advance unless she was educating her collectors. Vernon’s Paradise Found Fine Erotic Jewelry collection is ‘the bridge’ between her philosophy of sexual wellbeing and her revolutionary work with individuals and couples in search of greater pleasure.

During the salons Betony explores the various salon themes openly, she demonstrates the use of certain tools, with the help of diagrams she unveils the anatomy for desire. The salons are not to be confused with a performance, they are an intimate educational platform to enhance sexual wellbeing.

Group salons last approximately 3 hours, like minds come together, it a safe protected place where intimate questions can be asked, either in the group or anonymously by “passing the hat”. The salons always take place in an environment that is conducive to sharing and learning.

Betony customizes themes for her salons in accordance with her respective host. She also teaches weekend salon experiences held at luxury hotels and guesthouses. Here she covers all of the salon themes as well as offering one to one consultations, body work/movement classes that serve to align mind, body and spirit as well as bondage sessions, which are noted for their power to release sensual blocks. She provides novices with the opportunity to safely experience the power of being physically bound. Betony is aware that sexual pleasure is often shadowed by sexual fears that are caused by social mores, abuse and negative experiences. The salons are open to guests who want to explore more about the sexual realm. Betony’s salons are designed for female only, male only as well as mixed groups, depending on the host’s desires.

Betony conducts her public speaking engagements and events in English, Italian and French.
