I made reference to her in another thread. I thought I would see how many old folks on here remember her, or if I’m the only one.
In my youth, I thought she was kind of funny on fairly conservative television programming back in the 80’s and 90’s, I think.
A little old lady(at least old to my eyes at the time) with a thick German accent talking about explicit sexual topics on normal television programming.
I remember watching her as a kid haha i was curious and wanted to hear about what she was saying
Yeah, it was quite a gimmick: a cute, sweet, little old woman talking about penis size and orgasms. She was a popular celebrity there for awhile.
I remember the Sam Kinison skit.
Still can’t look at a grilled cheese without snorking.
I remember her! The German sex therapist. She was fun to watch.
Wonder if she was wild in the sack?
Yep, I remember watching her as well. Classroom sex ed had nothing on her lol
I lived in the south where we had “abstinence awareness” instead of sex ed.
Watched a lot of Dr Ruth.
She tackled those weird, uncomfortable subjects effortlessly.
She was a queen.
And a total badass in her youth too.
Yes, I remember Dr. Ruth. I watched her some here in Arkansas.
Dear god, I thought she was dead guys,
She’s still alive.
94 years old.
Yeah, I looked that up as well last night. I figured she was no longer around as well.
I remember a host having to stop her explaining that you could “lubricate” your breasts to get a man off…haha…she would say anything.
I watched one show and someone wanted to know if it was ok to put an onion ring on a penis.
Yeah I remember the old gal, she used to make guest appearances on everything. I think she also had her own show at one point but I cant recall if it was on tv or radio.
She had a column in the newspaper.
Yeah I’m definitely old enough to remember her.
She was very daring especially at the time.
I remember her too. So bold and unashamed! I’m glad she tackled those taboo topics. I think she helped a lot of people
I remember looking at stuff she did like it was porn when I was a kid.
I remember Dr. Ruth!
I always found her talks about masturbation comforting.
She’s punk af, and way ahead of her time.
