Format: Paperback
Look at the cover of this book -- and while I know they tell you not to do this, you'll get a pretty good sense of what's inside. The people on the cover are not in their 40s, they're closer to 70 and they still project their joie de vivre and the ease and happiness of their physical intimacy. They obviously know how to enjoy life and each other. You look at the picture and you say, "Hey, I want that." For anybody over 50 who is frustrated by teaser magazine articles that promise to explain all and then fail to deliver any actual information, this book is a compact treasure trove of reassurance. As we extend our useful lives into 8 and 9 decades, surely it's time to demystify the secrets of keeping our sex organs as happily engaged as our hearts and minds.

Format: Paperback
I generally enjoyed the read. I thought that it would be better as a "Guide to Better Sex after 60," because today's 50-year-old is yesterday's 40-year-old. Dr. Ruth may be a little out of touch with the baby boomer generation--sexually. It's a little bit geriatric. Even the font was larger, which made it easier to read, was very perceptive, but who me?

Consider using it as an encyclopedia of information, everything included, but clearly not everything is pertinent to everyone. It has an amazing table of contents. Read it once and highlight sections and issues that you think are important to you. Give it to your spouse, partner or significant other to read and have them do the same, but highlight issues with different color highlighters, compare notes and see how your relationship has evolved. If you end up with a rainbow of colors, then you should go to counseling fast!

Dr. Ruth's honesty, sense of humor and folksy personality come through clearly with this easy to read and understand "therapy guide." Exercising naked with your mate and leaving the bathroom door open when you're using it? Women would not find that terribly mood enhancing--in my book. As the "caverject" caught my eye as something no man would find too appealing--even if only to be used if Viagra fails to do the trick. So, trust that we had some differences of opinions. Zero in on the honesty and being truthful, authentic, and most everything else should be fun! If you have not brought your lover to the promise land in 20, 30 or 40 years this may help, but there are no guarantees!

Suddenly single in my 50's.....I went back to reading Cosmopoliton magazine thinking older men were like younger men in the sex department. Wrong.....this book help set things straight and understand the changes with sex as we grow older.

What happens to sexual drive after the age of 50? There may be changes, but it doesn't dry up, so read Dr. Ruth K. Westheimer's Dr. Ruth's Sex After 50: Revving Up The Romance, Passion & Excitement! to find out what physical and psychological changes actually lend to sex after 50. Sex therapist Westheimer discusses romance and passion as well as these changes, providing a focus on how passion can be retained through the years.

Dr. Ruth writes a great book for 50 yr olds, and even 60 year olds and 70 year olds and older! She points out some things that change as people age but she also encourages sexual satisfaction as long as one is able.

I have read the book since I strive to be alived when I am 85 on Nov. 5 and want to keep my wonderful wife and happy as she deserves. The general advice is good, but no enough emphasis on certain female needs and protections, as in the book, "Women Come First."
