The Schmooze

Dr. Ruth's New Sex-Free Endeavor

Dr. Ruth Westheimer has a new project — and it has nothing to do with the bedroom.

The pint-sized 82-year-old sex expert is in Tel Aviv researching a PBS documentary on Israel’s Circassian Muslim community, the Associated Press reported on August 18.

Those who know Westheimer for her tips on intimacy and sexual literacy may be surprised by the move, but this is not her first foray into film. As her website suggests, her fascination with minority groups has already culminated in films on Ethiopian Jews, religious values, the Druze and Bedouin women. The Circassian work is simply her next step.
