An inviting and informative guide to sex for seniors, with a clear message that "as far as sex in the senior years goes . . . the best is yet to come" (Dr. Dean Edell) Joan Price is talking out loud about a subject that is often ignored or ridiculed in our society: later-life sexuality. In Naked at Our Age, she offers a candid, straight-talking exploration of senior sexuality -- the challenges, the disappointments, and the surprises, as well as the delights of love and passion. She shares the stories of women and men -- coupled and single, straight and gay -- demonstrating how their sex lives and relationships have changed with age, and how their sex lives influence their lives and self-esteem. Along the way, she offers wise advice from sex therapists, health professionals, counselors, sex educators, and other knowledgeable experts, helping seniors to embrace intimacy in all its forms. Entertaining and indispensable, Naked at Our Age is a complete guide to enjoying senior sex, love, passion, and couplehood. Author and speaker Joan Price calls herself an "advocate for ageless sexuality." She has been called other things by the media: "senior sexpert, "the beautiful face of senior sex," and -- her favorite -- "wrinkly sex kitten." At age sixty-one, Price wrote Better Than I Ever Expected: Straight Talk about Sex After Sixty (Seal Press, 2006) to celebrate the delights of older-life sexuality -- especially her spicy love affair with artist Robert Rice, who became her husband. Later, after questions and comments from hundreds of readers about their own senior sex lives, she is following up with Naked at Our Age. Formerly a high school English teacher, Price is also a fitness professional who believes that exercise should be a treat, not a treatment. She has written several books about health and fitness, including The Anytime, Anywhere Exercise Book: 300+ Quick and Easy Exercises You Can Do Whenever You Want. Price teaches popular contemporary line dancing classes (which she calls "the most fun you can have with both feet on the floor") in Sebastopol and Santa Rosa, California. "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 . . ." --Candida Royalle, pioneer of woman-friendly erotica and author of How to Tell a Naked Man What to Do "[W]ith irresistible enthusiasm, Joan Price tackles outdated expectations and promotes ... new ways to celebrate sexuality throughout the later years. --Peggy Brick, president of the Sexuality and Aging Consortium at Widener University and co-author of Older, Wiser, Sexually Smarter: 30 Sex Ed Lessons for Adults Only "[T]he impact of the book is as much inspirational as it is educational." --Pepper Schwartz, PhD, author of Prime: Adventures and Advice on Sex, Love, and the Sensual Years
