Dr. Ruth Turns 90 — And Still Wants To Know Your Intimate Secrets

At her 90th birthday party, legendary sex therapist Dr. Ruth Westheimer was teased over her penchant for grilling strangers about what goes on in the bedroom, according to Page Six.

During the 350-guest affair at the Museum of Jewish Heritage, Israel’s consul general in New York, Dani Dayan, joked that Westheimer asks every detail about people’s sex lives — including those of his driver and security detail.

“The driver always blushes,” Dayan said.

A film crew was on hand to tape the event for a documentary about her life.
