Renowned sex therapist and media personality Dr. Ruth Westheimer detailed anecdotes of her "love affair' with Israel on Sunday at The Jerusalem Post Annual Conference in New York.

The German-born octogenarian who was orphaned by the Holocaust, explained that her relation with the Jewish state began some 70 years ago.

She told outgoing Post Editor In Chief Steve Linde that the outcome of her experience from the Holocaust was to engage in the work of 'tikkun olam' - Hebrew for repairing the world.

"I didn't know my repairing the world be about talking about sex day and night," she quipped.

However, the vibrant cultural icon turned to a more serious note boasting of her children and grandchildren and underlining that: "Hitler lost and I won."
