Whether you want to call her “Goddess of Sex” or “Grandma Freud,” Dr. Ruth indisputably transformed the way we talk about sexuality in America. This lively and inspiring documentary traces the incredible life of the now 90-year-old diminuitive powerhouse Ruth Westheimer—from child Holocaust survivor to Israeli sniper, American immigrant and single mother to PHD graduate and licensed sex therapist, to unlikely media sensation who was unafraid to tackle taboos including AIDS, abortion, penis size, and the female orgasm.
