After 40 years of being quizzed on everything from the location of the elusive clitoris to the “normal” frequency of masturbation, is there anything legendary sex therapist Dr. Ruth hasn’t been asked? To open up about herself, apparently. Warm, funny and thoroughly surprising, this revealing profile of the now 90-year-old turns up one of the most trailblazing women in modern history. The trauma of her youth as a Holocaust orphan fuelled both a fierce survival instinct and a deep curiosity about human nature. How else could a Israeli-trained sharpshooter and three-times-married mother become a bestselling author and one of Johnny Carson’s favourite guests? Unflappable and undaunted, the heavily accented voice behind the landmark 1980s radio show Sexually Speaking became one of the fiercest advocates for sexual health, abortion and LGBTQ rights of the century. Ask Dr. Ruth offers up a life story as edifying and candid as the icon herself.
