Dr. Ruth Tweets About Sex, Matzo — And The Holocaust
It’s only the fourth day of 2018, but facts are facts: Ruth Westheimer’s Twitter is the best thing on the internet this year. Westheimer’s feed is a strong combination of sex advice, thoughts on self-driving cars and withering takedowns of Barbra Streisand’s visit to the Holocaust museum.
If you don’t have a little bit of the 89-year-old sex positivity icon in your life, you’re not living.
Here are just a few of her hottest takes:
Dr. Ruth on how a woman’s vagina is NOT a black hole
They found the oldest black hole in space. https://t.co/rxtwl8bUUl You wouldn’t want to fall into that but guys, a woman’s vagina is not a black hole but rather a lovely place to explore that can bring her, and you, a lot of pleasure.— Dr. Ruth Westheimer (@AskDrRuth) December 7, 2017
Dr. Ruth on the ceaseless march of progress
Fully self-driving cars are now on streets in AZ. How long before some couple brag about doing “it” in one of them? Cheaper than a motel. Probably should provide condoms!— Dr. Ruth Westheimer (@AskDrRuth) November 7, 2017
Dr. Ruth doesn’t just give stellar sex advice, she tries to help improve every aspect of our sorry lives
Hope you’re thinking about what you’re thankful for. Better to consider your life now than mumble something half-hearted during the dinner.— Dr. Ruth Westheimer (@AskDrRuth) November 20, 2017
Dr. Ruth on the value of democracy
Whether your candidate ends up a top or a bottom, you always get satisfaction from voting.— Dr. Ruth Westheimer (@AskDrRuth) November 7, 2017
Dr. Ruth reflecting on the cruel nature of life in the world
Why did they have to name the strongest hurricane ever after my mother Irma, who was so gentle?— Dr. Ruth Westheimer (@AskDrRuth) September 7, 2017
Dr. Ruth casually living the American Jewish dream like it’s no big deal

I don’t know how anyone can go on when Westheimer just casually destroyed Barbra Streisand’s reflections on the Holocaust in one tweet, but I know there will be a Broadway musical written about this moment
And finally, Dr. Ruth, in the prime of her life, dancing in Israel
I can still cut up the rug at age 89 in Israel! pic.twitter.com/iTsGk9wwz3— Dr. Ruth Westheimer (@AskDrRuth) August 24, 2017
