Over the past decade, Americans have been bonkers for Brazilians – waxes, that is. Millions of women have endured the monthly torture of spreading their legs for a stranger who rips out their hair with a patch of hot wax. All to avoid the potential humiliation of a lover seeing a pube peeking out from their thong. Bare bodies define sexiness according to online porn, Carrie Bradshaw, and Kim Kardashian who boasts that her, “entire body is hairless.” Even the current Wikipedia entry for Mons Pubis features only Barbie-bare bodies.

I was recently interviewed by Salon. com about the impact that Dr. Ruth Westheimer has had on my career. It was amazing to reflect on exactly how much I’ve followed in Dr. Ruth’s footsteps. As you’ll read in the article on Salon, Dr. Ruth forged the path that allowed me to become a media sex educator. I owe her a debt of gratitude, as does everyone who appears on TV or radio to talk about sex. The interview was sponsored by Cole Haan. As that company celebrates its 85th anniversary, it is honoring icons like Dr. Ruth who were born in 1928. This series of articles on Salon is called, “Inspiration Foundations,” and it pairs contemporaries with those being honored to show the influence they’ve had on us. Those born in 1928 who are included are: Dr. Maya Angelou, Capt. James Lovell, Elliott Erwitt, China Machado, Vidal Sassoon, Dr. Ruth, Andy Warhol, and Maurice Sendak.
February 3, 2014 update: I just noticed the
amazon.com listing for this Japanese book of mine. They seem to have an unusual translation of the title. “Advance class of sex feel the joy of female professor of Amazing Sex Columbia University teach” I hope that’s not really the title.
The newest edition of my book, The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Amazing Sex, 4th Edition, was just published in Japan. My book has a wide audience, since it has been translated into Japanese, French, Chinese, Russian, Romanian, Spanish, Turkish, other languages, and the English edition has also been printed in Braille. In Japan, it was released as a two book series: basic and “advance,” as pictured.
Here’s a still from my recent appearance on The Doctors. We discussed how couples can get out of a “sex rut,” and enhance romance. I was on the phone, which is why the co-hosts seem to be talking to my picture.
