Dr. Ruth Westheimer is a psychosexual therapist who helped pioneer the field of media psychology with her radio program, “Sexually Speaking.” It began in September of 1980 as a fifteen minute, taped show that aired Sundays after midnight on WYNY-FM (NBC) in New York. One year later it became a live, one-hour show airing at 10 PM on which Dr. Ruth, as she became known, answered call-in questions from listeners. Soon she became part of a communication network which includes television, books, newspapers, games, home video, social media and her website.
Dr. Ruth now captains a multimedia network to distribute her expertise as she circles the globe with her column, “Ask Dr. Ruth.” She is the author of over 30 books and even has a board game, “Dr. Ruth’s Game of Good Sex”, which has also been released in a multimedia version. She has her own private practice in New York and lectures worldwide.
