Dr. Ruth Really Wants Couples To Try A New Sex Position For Valentine's Day

With Valentine's Day this weekend, famed sex therapist Dr. Ruth said in a HuffPost Live interview Thursday she wants couples to switch it up this year — specifically, to try something new in the bedroom.

"I'm saying it doesn't have to be chocolate. It doesn't have to be flowers. Find out what that person likes," she told host Nancy Redd. "Go maybe to a movie, go do something that is not expected. If you stay at home because it snows, then what you can do is try a new position. Maybe a position that you haven't tried before and say, 'My Valentine, this position is for you.'"

The 86-year-old also recommended that single men and women should try to meet partners somewhere else besides a bar.

"It doesn't matter where you are or what you do. Be open," she said. "Where you are, it doesn't matter what you do. Be open to the ability of a partner to have a relationship."
