Masturbation is an important part of everyone’s sex life whether you are single or attached, says Dr. Ruth.

Dr. Ruth Westheimer is a German-American sex therapist, media personality and author.
Best known simply as Dr. Ruth, The New York Times described her as a “Sorbonne-trained psychologist who became a kind of cultural icon in the 1980s.”
Three decades ago, Westheimer ushered in a new age of freer, franker talk about sex on radio and TV, according to the Times.
Westheimer was also endlessly parodied. She was mocked for her limitless energy and German accented English, which once described as the kind of “an accent only a psychologist could have.”
But she was hugely popular. When Dr. Ruth talked, people listened. And they still do.
Now in her mid-80s, Dr. Ruth continues to dispense her wit and wisdom on all things sexual.
Her advice and observations on sex are funny, timeless and universal.
