Outrageous Observations of a Wicked Old Broad


Hi Ruth ,
Here’s my question. From reading your blog, you appear to be just about the
most self-assured person I’ve ever seen. How do you conquer fear? I
have a tough time with being around people. I know I’m intelligent, and
can hold my own on a variety of topics, I’m artistic, easy on the eyes
:), and manage my life quite nicely. When I’m around people I don’t
know, I become a mute. I can’t, for the life of me think of anything
interesting to contribute to a conversation. Someone else might say
something and I’m thinking “I should have said that!, having thought it
minutes before” .. Any ideas?
I always thought you should have a column somewhere 🙂 Best of Luck!

Hi Mad..
The reason most people feel shy and unable to express themselves among new
people is fear of rejection, fear of looking foolish, fear of being
ignored. You can overcome these fears by remembering that you’re more
intelligent, prettier, and more talented than any of the people you’re
afraid of. Keep in mind that they all have inadequacies and are just as
afraid of rejection by you! Simply say whatever comes into your mind,
to whomever, and whenever that may be.. As long as you speak with
authority, regardless of content, you will be heard and appreciated.
Strangers are just like bugs, honey…they may scare you, but always
remember, you’re stronger and smarter than they are, they know you can
squash them at will, and they’re much more afraid of you than vice
versa. So just grab that spotlight and bask in it. I promise you, it
will warm your cockles and make you the most vibrant belle of any ball.
If you enjoy yourself, everyone else will, too.


Unless there’s something better than Number One, the five-day free download promotion of NOW THAT YOU’VE GOT ME HERE, WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO? was an unqualified success!  I want to thank everyone who helped put it there and hope you enjoy reading it!

One more favor:  please write a review on Amazon.  I mean, it’s nice that so many people got it free, but a few actual sales would be even nicer,  and reviews help sell books, as we all know.  So express your opinion…think of how many readers YOU’LL have!

Thanks again to all who downloaded the book and to all those who soon will.




YesImage, it’s true. Starting on May 21st and running for five days, through the 25th, you’ll be able to download my famous, much-quoted bestselling sex manual, “NOW THAT YOU’VE GOT ME HERE, WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO?” free to your Kindle. No strings, no cost, nothing but a great read, chock full of hot tips, information for both sexes, even stuff you didn’t know you didn’t know about your favorite pastime.


Ladies, do you know how to cause an erection from across the room? Guys, do you know the one action that guarantees acquiescence? Do either of you know how to increase the longevity and pleasure of an orgasm? These and dozens of other questions are answered in entertaining detail in this timeless tome.


In the words of one critic: “(The book is) rich in detail, explicit, anecdotal…a provocative, intelligent and lively exploration of every nuance (of erotic activity) between the sexes…”


You know you’ve always wanted to read it. And now you can, and it won’t even cost the price of a stamp! Remember: FREE download May 21-25. Mark your calendars, tell your friends and, most especially, make sure your lover reads it! I promise, you’ll both thank me.

First publicty piece from the e-publisher

If anyone starts a school for mistresses, Ruth Dickson will be its dean.

After years of personal research, Dickson offers pointed advice on becoming a happy and successful Other Woman, covering everything from the selection, capture and care of a married lover to his ultimate release. She leaves no stone unturned, discussing every aspect of the affair, up to and including the problematic Wife. Wrapping things up with an informative Q&A, Married Men Make the Best Lovers is must reading for any woman who treasures both her single status and the enjoyment of a rich, fulfilling sex life.

E-Reads re-releases this classic, smart and sassy advice book from the 1960′s. Published in the heyday of the sexual revolution, it’s as entertaining and pertinent as it was on publication date. And Dickson, one of the movement’s most outspoken leaders, still displays the same wicked mind, razor-edged wit and freewheeling attitude that made her one of the most popular writers of the day.



I was delighted to find that at least one friend took me up on my offer to answer questions and/or offer advice on virtually any facet of life.  Following  is the question and my response.  Additions, corrections and opinions are welcome, as are just plain comments.  Go!

Q.  Can I weigh in almost 5 years later?  I actually have a question.   So….I am 42.  My contemporaries (?) Say….slow down.  Sex isn’t everything and I should wait until the moment is right.  What is wrong with safely making the moment right?  I am trying to gather my “posies” where I may while I can gather them.  Btw.  I do have a suicide pact that you may like.  I have an agreement that when decrepitness offends me too much….that an old friend will come and break my hips in the way they ought to be broken.   I should put it in my medical poa to be safe.

A:  Sorry to have taken so long to respond.  Trying to update my work and find a new generation of readers has been exhausting and totally time-consuming.  But I’ve done all that I can do and now my future is in the hands and e-readers of friends and fans. Like you, for instance.
So anyhow, to answer your question:  Of course there’s no reason to stop lusting for lust, regardless of age, state of decrepitude or degree of acquaintanceship with your partner. There’s no such thing as bad sex…just a bad attitude about it.

Although it’s been some time since I’ve had a battery-free instrument in or around my lady-parts, I freely admit to keeping my BOB at the ready and close at hand at all times.  I sincerely believe that an orgasm a day (or at least a couple a week) keep both mind and body limber, attentive and happy.
I envy your suicide pact.  My dearest wish is to die with a hard body on top of me, coming and going simultaneously.  Unfortunately, there are precious few young men who have the balls (ahem) to fuck an old lady to death, regardless of her posthumous gratitude.
Thanks for the question.  Keep ’em coming, to coin a phrase.


As of today, NOW THAT YOU’VE GOT ME HERE, WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO?, A Non-marriage Manual, is available from the Kindle lending library for free.  Three other titles are also e-vailable from Amazon, B&N and everyplace else that sells books, either paper or electronic.  So run, do not walk, to your nearest e-reader and download away!  And while you’re at it, you might be inclined to write a review for the old broad.  M’kay?



According to the archives, I haven’t been seen on WordPress in three years.  How time slithers!  And since I will soon be one year closer to my expiration date, I thought those of my friends who are still breathing might be interested in catching up with the events of my tottering life.

If progeny is the proof, I am now a bona fide matriarch. I have acquired three great-grandchildren and there’s another on the way, putting me in a dead heat with my late mother.  Aside from the human offspring, my brainchildren are about to experience a renaissance.  Once available in arcane forms known as “hardback” and “paperback” (no, kiddies..those are not types of tortoises or gorillas) my oeuvre will soon be available in “e” (for “everyone who owns a Kindle”) format, rescuing them from the limbo of collector’s items and putting them squarely into Clickhere Land.  With the current rage for all things sixties, the hope is that fans of “Mad Men” and similar nostalgia will joyously jump upon the opportunity to read works written during and about the Kennedy/social revolution era.  It is also hoped that friends of the author will be delighted to acquire the titles as they become available.

In other news, Supercrone is back in business. I’m reviving the advice column in which I offer wise (and frequently snarky) answers to your questions, probably on a weekly basis.  Ask me anything, except math problems and those related to electronic contraptions, and I will answer from the wealth of wisdom and experience garnered during damn near a century of adventurous living. Life, Sex, Aging, Dying and similar trivia.are all fair game, so don’t hold back.  And don’t forget to tell your friends!

Updates will be posted as they arise.  Please comment, if only to let me know you were here.
