When people think about what their sex lives will look like as they get older, they usually don’t see much to look forward to. They tend to think about problems that might arise and how sex may become more challenging. However, this line of thinking is all wrong. Sex can actually get better with age. In fact, many seniors report that they’re having the best sex of their lives! And many of the tools and strategies that they’re using can be helpful at any age for reigniting passion, improving sexual communication, and having more pleasurable sex than ever before. So today we’re going to be exploring tips for better sex no matter where you are in your life.
My guest is Joan Price, a self-described advocate for ageless sexuality. Joan is the author of four books about senior sex, including the award-winning Naked at Our Age: Talking Out Loud about Senior Sex. She is a popular public speaker and sex educator who has been expanding our minds about sex and aging since 2005. Some of the topics we explore in this show include:
- How (and why) sex can get better with age.
- How to start healthy conversations about sex, whether you’re in a new or long-term relationship.
- How to talk about sex with your doctor or healthcare provider.
- How redefining sex can open the door to more pleasure.
- What to do when the old ways of approaching sex just aren’t working for you anymore.
- Why sex toys are an essential component of satisfying sex, especially as we get older.
- How you can set yourself up for having great sex for your entire life.
