From Library Journal
When this book was first published in 1976, a Florida newspaper refused to advertise it as "too prurient for the general public." Happily, the book became a classic anyway and has gone through several editions over 25 years. This update merely strengthens its credentials as the best all-around sex manual for older adults. There is thorough coverage of the standard topics: the effects of normal aging, medical problems, and drugs on sexuality and how to overcome roadblocks; physical and emotional sexual fitness; singlehood and relationships; sexual enhancement tips; dating, remarriage, and one's children; and finding help. This new edition incorporates same-sex relationships more equitably. In addition, readers are given permission not to be strongly interested in sex a refreshing change from the "super-orgasms can change your life!" approach of so many sex manuals. Lewis is a physician and head of the International Longevity Center, and Butler is a clinical psychotherapist. Both have other books on aging to their credit. For all public libraries, no excuses get several copies. [The previous edition was featured in "Sex Texts Come Out of the Closet," a collection development feature in LJ 10/1/97. Ed.] Martha Cornog, Philadelphi.

"Marvelous . . . [This book] helps women and men . . . attain what the authors brilliantly delineate as the second language of sex."
"Everyone who is 60 (or older) should read this book. Even I learned something!"

For instance: unmarried men over 60 are NOT an "in demand commodity", indeed, my experience is that we're invisible. Women on the online sites seem to just be going through the motions, they're disinterested, bitter, and some of them are downright rude, and that's if they respond at all.
The last time I was single was in 1997, and my experience then was more in line with what is described in this book. Becoming available again in 2017 seems like I've been dropped in the middle of some war-torn dystopia where everybody's afraid of everybody.
I am using the Butler/Lewis book as an important resource for my own book which I am writing, also on issues of aging and ageism. As a woman approaching 70 myself, I can attest to the fact that sex after 60 can be wonderful and pleasurable. I'm thrilled that there are books like this available to the baby-boomers and even younger, so that we can all approach aging with delight and enthusiasm, not dread. Butler and Lewis have offered us an important document, as well as guidance, on what is true and NOT true about sex after 60. Their message is also my message: "life can be rich and full at any age." All I have to say about that is "WOOHOO"!
