Dr. Ruth Endorses ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’

Fifty Shades of Grey doesn’t need celebrity blurbs to sell books, but the great Dr. Ruth recently delivered an enthusiastic video endorsement of the erotic book.

Sex therapist and author Dr. Ruth Westheimer has posted more than 60 videos on YouTube, sharing tips and recommendations for her readers. You can watch her talk about E. L. James‘ book in the video embedded above–do you agree?

Here’s an excerpt from the video: “If this guy described here–his name is Christian Grey–if he were available and if I were much, much younger and not married, let’s say, I would also go for a night with him. Not because of the sadistic element (that’s not for me), but because he has a plane, he has a helicopter and he knows how to deal with women. He is very smooth and he knows how to make love.”

If you want something to drink while you read Fifty Shades of Grey, Dr. Ruth has a wine for you. PRNewser has more: “the grande dame of sex and relationships, is launching Dr. Ruth Vin d’Amour, a wine with a slightly lower alcohol content (six percent) that’s meant to help couples relax without getting completely bombed.”
