"Get some!"

SexOctober 19, 2018 By Jahla Seppanen

The 89-year-old German-born sex therapist, Dr. Ruth Westheimer— fondly referred to as Dr. Ruth— is a Betty White-looking Jewish immigrant that has been laying down the truth about gettin’ frisky for decades. (Fun fact, she was also a trained sniper.)

Bridging 90, Ruth is still bubbling with energy and she credits it to walking every day and talking about sex.

Way ahead of her time, Dr. Ruth’s career began in radio in 1980, (so just imagine a Freud accent through the vessel and tenor of a boppy woman talking about bubble baths, foreplay, orgasms, and erectile dysfunction). She brought a no-holds-barred on the topic of sex, sexual expression, and all that comes with it. And people listened for her candid yet kind address ... her voice has been described as “a cross between Henry Kissinger and Minnie Mouse.” She’s an absolute icon, having been invited to the Pentagon to talk with generals on the topic of national sex, and interviewed everyone from Jerry Seinfeld to Ozzy Osbourne.

Funny enough, her advice still rings true to this day. And probably always will.

15. “Get Some!”
A vintage Dr. Ruth tag phrase that still sparks inspiration in our hearts and ... other places.

13. “When it comes to sex, the most important six inches are the ones between the ears.”
Hear that, guys. Now stop obsessing over the size of your junk. Big, fat, throbbing brains are the ultimate turn on.

6. “Skiers make the best lovers because they don't sit in front of a television like couch potatoes. They take a risk and they wiggle their behinds. They also meet new people on the ski lift.”

5. “If you're a single lady and want to attract some men, why not host a Super Bowl party.”

4. “I am telling people to use a condom. Did you know condoms now come in all different colors.”
Dr. Ruth said this on an old interview with Letterman, to which he replied, “what I hate worst of all is clashing with the wallpaper.”

3. “I know roses are the traditional Valentine’s Day offering but a canister of whipped cream might be nice addition to spice things up.”
