Ladies and gentlemen, introducing Dr. Ruth Westheimer’s brand new line of low-alcohol wines, Dr. Ruth’s Vin D’Amour!

“The biggest concern — and correctly so — is having an erection for men. That is one of the reasons I came out with the wine. It has only 6 percent alcohol.

Also, it retails at $7.99 a bottle! Read more from the Post Health section: Dr. Ruth says some frank things about aging and sex
