The plethora of past Oprah guests in addition to winning many Asian Business and Heritage awards has let to her honrable moniker “the Asian Oprah”.

Since the advent of the camera in her studio, her YouTube views have increased to over 104 thousand views in less than 3 years.

Special Series Sexual Healing with Dr. Marissa

Dr. Marissa Live On-Air

So why Sex? Well between most women having such critical voices around their own body image and not feeling comfortable about their bodies and up to 80% women faking orgasms, it was time to talk about sex baby! And we don’t talk about it…and most of the sex that is flashed around is the dark side…sexual abuse, pornography, voilence…that I wanted to Balance…of course! Pleasure is one of the gifts of life and so last year, when I had a whole Valentine’s month focused on sex and romance…and it was so much fun, I knew a series was born.  With a wonderful panel of co-hosts, professors, tantric experts, and sexperts from condoms to cuddling, this series has been very positively received and so Dr. Marissa, the Asian Dr. Ruth is determined to make Pleasure a G, and a G-Spot Rated Topic!!
