Dr. Ruth Under Fire for Rape Comments: Woman Can’t Change Her Mind Once Naked in Bed With Man

Longtime sex therapist and advice columnist Dr. Ruth Westheimer is facing backlash for comments she made Monday, after she suggested a woman can’t change her mind about having sex with a man once she’s naked in bed with him.

Appearing on the “The Diane Rehm Show,” the 86-year-old doctor said once two people are “aroused” and “in bed together,” the time for changing one’s mind has passed, Mashable reported.

“I am very worried about college campuses saying that a woman and a man — or two men or two women, but I talk right now about woman and man — can be in bed together, Diane, and … most of the time they think she can say, I changed my mind. No such thing is possible,” Dr. Ruth said.

She cited ancient Jewish scripture to back up her claim.
