Joan Price is talking out loud about later-life sexuality. With a foreword by Betty Dodson, "Naked at Our Age" candidly addresses senior sexuality in all its colors--the challenges, disappointments, and surprises, as well as the delights and the love stories. "Naked at Our Age" gives people over fifty a voice to tell stories of their past and present sex lives, ask questions, and get straightforward advice and information from experts. No topic is off-limits.
In "Naked at Our Age," women and men--coupled and single, straight and gay--talk candidly about how their sex lives and relationships have changed with age, and about how they see themselves, their partners, or their single life. Many are having unsatisfying sex, or no sex at all, and are seeking advice. Price presents their personal stories, and follows up with tips from sex therapists, health professionals, counselors, sex educators, and other knowledgeable experts. Named "Outstanding Self-Help Book" of 2012 by the American Society of Journalists and Authors and winner of the 2012 Book Award from the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors, and Therapists, "Naked at Our Age" is an entertaining and indispensable guide to handling and understanding the issues of senior sex and relationships.
