Ask Dr. Ruth

Documentary Biography


 

Alexa is right in saying "Dr. Ruth Westheimer became a fixture in late-night television and a major pop culture fixture as a sex therapist, media personality and author."

Since 1984, this documentary subject has been talking about sex in explicit terms, and reactions (while mostly favourable) have been mixed. Before the internet, she was a source of information for what was rarely, and certainly not publicly, talked about. Once described as the 'happy munchkin of sex,' this holocaust orphan is irrepressible, which is a key element in making this doco so engaging; that, and her extraordinary presence. Proof that size does not matter.
