Hang on, because Naked at Our Age breaks all the barriers and goes where ordinary books on this subject dare not. Some readers may be shocked . . . and others delighted by this bold . . . and uncensored approach. The message is clear: As far as sex in the senior years goes . . . the best is yet to come.
Dr. Dean Edell, M.D., Emmy-award-winning host of the Dr. Dean Edell Program and author of the best-selling book Eat, Drink and Be Merry
Told through the voices of real people interspersed with great advice from smart professionals, Naked at Our Age is an important resource for anyone who wants to keep pleasure and sensuality in their lives . . .”

Some of her respondents are older people who have worked through the wounds of earlier years and are ready to "get it on." The courage expressed by the women and men who have survived betrayals and violence, and not abandoned the human connection of sexual play is inspiring. Those sections are a welcome restorative to the culture-wide notion that older folks are dead below the waist. I respect Ms. Price for not limiting her sample to conventional couples -- a few of her respondents practice BDSM, are polyamorous, or live in non-traditional arrangements.
For me though, the sections about seniors who are dealing with the downsides of aging are particularly rich. Several chapters which describe declining libido (whether resulting from emotional stresses, illness, or the side effects of medication), or declining physical capability -- ED and EDis, vaginal dryness and tearing, consequences and complications of chemotherapy and surgeries -- also provide resources to help.Read more ›
"Naked at Our Age" is a game changer, full of specifics from very personal stories addressing delicate issues with honest, practical advice by professionals who know and care. Yes, it's frank, but there's no time for anything less! Informative, timely, compassionate and downright brave: it refreshes the discussion of autumn romance and, yes, winter lovemaking. You'll find beautiful accounts expressing the joys of true love found at last and others describing the startling anguish over a loved-one lost too soon. This book is nothing less than a tribute, a coming-out party celebrating love and intimacy in our 60's, 70's, 80's, and beyond. It's the real deal.
"Naked at Our Age" will soon be found on the nightstand of a generation experiencing the emotional and physical effects of aging. It will be discussed, at coffee klatches, golf courses and retirement communities across the land. It arrives just in time. The discussion is well underway, but until now lacked the focused, informative insights that Joan Price and her professionals provide.
The baton has been passed from Masters & Johnson, Gloria Steinem, Dr. Ruth and the others to author Joan Price. Her work continues the social progress begun and advanced by these pioneers. Joan Price contributes another important step in the sexual liberation of her generation, freeing us from the myths of the past and inviting us into a vibrant and informed future.
Bravo and thank you, Joan Price.
With my heart and soul dialed in, I've read a wall of books this last decade on human sexuality and love. As a man in my mid 50s seriously in the game, I needed to do my research. Ten years later at 64 this work here by Joan Price is unique and as important as ever for those of us more wise than pretty in the years department.
Turns out, the author is an expert at senior romance. She found deep soul mate love and good sex herself, albeit tragically interrupted by death. Yet following an important grieving time she comes heart open at life once again, reaching out with not only her own wisdom and experience but the sage advice of 43 other experts with illustrative sidebars in the book. All kinds of sex mavens speak in her work, from Betty Dodson to Dossie Easton, whether it is masturbation or spank me into enlightenment spiritual kink after 70, her experts have our erotic backs and fronts covered.
The chapter here on dating online after 50 is brilliant I must say, and this from a reviewer that found success in that venue. Also, her chapter on post 50 women and the matter of vaginal pain and thinning vaginal walls left me spanking myself that I ever thought I knew much about sex and women and physiology. For basics, who knew 50 was older? And who knew women need two orgasms a week from their 50s forward not loose sexual functionality.Read more ›
