In Praise of Dr. Ruth-- sex educator extraordinaire.
Question: What do you do when you are a Sexual Medicine Specialist as a second career and an Actor, Producer, and Director as a first Career?
Answer: You underwrite theatrical productions about sex!
This fall the JCC Theatre in Rochester presents “Becoming Dr. Ruth,” a one woman whirlwind of a show about the famous Ruth Westheimer. Dr. Ruth’s writing and talk shows have helped thousands of people embrace sex without shame. Bringing the Jewish tradition of bucking the trend and making the world a better place, Dr. Ruth’s programming bought sex talk out of the bedroom and into kitchens and dining rooms all across America.
The Rochester Center for Sexual Wellness carries on this tradition – bucking the trend and making the world a better place. We continue to bring sex talk out of the bedroom and into the doctor’s office. Almost half of us have some sexual dysfunction at some point in our lives, but far fewer talk about it, and far fewer still bring it to their doctor.
We are committed to our clients’ ability to function sexually, to embrace their sexuality, and to have sexual pleasure. Our clinicians have treated many people with a wide variety of sexual difficulties. We have also trained doctors, child protective agencies, not for profits, schools, and other therapists to prepare them to meet their clients’ needs.
No, we have not reached as many people as Dr. Ruth… but we are on our way!
Come see Becoming Dr. Ruth at the JCC October 6th to October 21st. On October 11th, Rochester Center for Sexual Wellness is providing a post-show talk-back-- join us!
Tickets are available at 461-2000 or at JCC Rochester.
