Dr. Ruth Dishes Snow Sex Safety Tips

Dr. Ruth Westheimer’s got some advice for couples snowed in during the East Coast snowstorm: Have some fun, but keep safe.

Westheimer, the sex therapist who achieved prominence for her willingness to break taboos on New York radio, has in the past mixed discussion of sex and cold weather on her Twitter account, which is as ribald as the woman herself.

Entering her nineties, Westheimer remains dynamic as ever, and she’s hip to how millennials connect romantically and sexually. For this Valentine’s Day she’ll be doing a live show analyzing OkCupid profiles.
