Call me crazy, but there’s something endlessly fascinating about getting sex advice from a feisty 84-year-old woman. I’m not talking about just any woman (no offense grandma); I’m talking about none other than the pint-sized powerhouse of sexual candor, Dr. Ruth Westheimer.
Dr. Ruth began her career as an educator for Planned Parenthood and parlayed her signature frank talk about human sexuality into a wildly successful career as a sex therapist, radio/TV personality, author, and cultural phenomenon.
Once quoted as saying, “I want people to be sexually active until the age of 99,” Dr. Ruth serves as a shining example that good sex is the key to a long and happy life. But she isn’t stopping there; this spirited grandma is dishing up pearls of sexual wisdom on Twitter as only our beloved Dr. Ruth could.
Just as Dr. Ruth packs a big personality into her petite 4′ 7″ frame, she packs a whole lot of sexual wisdom into 140 characters or less. Check out our favorite Dr. Ruth tweets after the jump!
