Dr. Ruth to Keynote SHE L.A.

LOS ANGELES — Organizers of the third annual Sexual Health Expo (SHE), the premier sexual health event in the U.S., are pleased to announce Dr. Ruth Westheimer, the iconic American figure in the field of human sexuality, as the event’s special guest keynote speaker.

Slated for Saturday, Feb. 4 during SHE L.A., the legendary sex therapist will share her globally renown expertise in a special address that will mark a rare public appearance by Dr. Ruth in the Los Angeles area.

“Sexual Health Expo is a groundbreaking event that’s been long overdue, which is why I am so pleased to have the opportunity to address a new generation of sexually active adults, many of whom may not realize just how far we’ve come in terms of sexual liberation and wellness in this country,” Dr. Ruth said. “I plan to share my decades of experience as a sexual health advocate and to delve into, as I always do, the many benefits of a healthy sex life."

Dr. Ruth is credited with ushering in a new age of freer, franker talk about sex on radio and television. She rose to fame in the 1980s with her radio talk show “Sexually Speaking.” Over the past three decades, she’s become an international celebrity and best-selling author.

“We are truly honored and thrilled to host a special talk by Dr. Ruth,” SHE Media Director Sara Ramirez said. “She is, without question, the mother of the modern-day sexual health and wellness movement, and a true national treasure. Dr. Ruth opened the doors to sex education and discussions about intimacy — the very ideals that our event was founded on. Her participation cements Sexual Health Expo as the preeminent sexual wellness event in America, if not the world over.”

SHE returns to L.A. just in time for Valentine’s Day on the weekend of Feb. 4-5, and is expected to draw more than 5,000 attendees to the event’s venue at the California Market Center in downtown Los Angeles.

Pleasure Chest will once again serve as SHE L.A.’s Official Education Sponsor to present a fresh slate of engaging sex-ed workshops led by top sexperts. We-Vibe also returns as Registration Sponsor, and is sponsoring free admission for the first 2,000 attendees who register online.

The Sexual Health Expo (SHE) is an upscale event that puts a stylish touch on sex education, anchored by workshops hosted by top sexperts, along with more than 60 exhibitors demonstrating the latest, most innovative and cutting-edge sex toys and pleasure products. SHE empowers its diverse attendee base to immerse themselves in all the benefits of a healthy sex life. During the event, top authors, educators, lecturers and entrepreneurs from around the world will present workshops and discussions across the full spectrum of sexual wellness.
