    One thought on “Naked at Our Age: Talking Out Loud About Senior Sex”

    1. Joan Price is a gutsy woman. She can be frank and bold when she talks about sex among the slightly wrinkled, I think partly because she doesn't have any kids! Thank god for her. I am reading the book a little at a time. It is bulging with information I had not known, and it makes the whole myth about older people being over it all seem so antiquated and ridiculous. Why do we feed ourselves such bullshit? Younger people might read it too because it is good for them to know that any end to the sha [...]

    2. I didn't like this book as much as its predecessor, Better Than I Ever Expected, but that is probably due to its tone being more serious. In Chapter 20 of this book, Joan Price compares the two, saying the first book "celebrated the joys of senior sex", whereas this book "aims to help you if you are not having great sex". Ironically, this could be the better book depending on what you are trying to get out of a sex book for seniors.However, given that this book intends to help you solve your sex [...]

    3. This is a review I completed for a university class: One of the largest demographic age categories in our society are older adults, yet the information available to them in regards to their sexuality is limited; in fact some people argue that it is non-existent. Joan Price, self-acclaimed sex expert, has started to tackle the subject of senior sex with her second of two novels titled, Naked at Our Age: Talking Out Loud About Senior Sex. Her goal is to provide seniors with a straightforward, hone [...]

    4. Quick opinion from Aida: Good overall read with some very valuable information for anyone who is or plans to be an elder, but it got to be pretty repetitive after a while around certain themes; there are only so many times I can read about how old age can bring an appreciation for "full-body sensuality/sexuality"! This is a book you can skim a bit to find the gems in.The text brings in voices of experts in the fields of sexuality, but even more heavily relies on people's personal experiences wit [...]

    5. The focus of this book is on placing sexual satisfaction high on life's priority list. It is informative, encouraging and direct, although it includes topics that may not appeal to all readers (i.e. it addresses gay/lesbian/bisexual issues, paying for sexual services, S&M acts, sex with multiples, and extra-marital sex). With the acknowledgement that I personally found certain topics addressed to be contrary to my beliefs, here is a summary of the book:GOOD: This book is first and foremost a [...]

    6. Quick opinion: Good overall read with some very valuable information for anyone who is or plans to be an elder, but it got to be pretty repetitive after a while around certain themes; there are only so many times I can read about how old age can bring an appreciation for "full-body sensuality/sexuality"! This is a book you can skim a bit to find the gems in.The text brings in voices of experts in the fields of sexuality, but even more heavily relies on people's personal experiences with aging an [...]

    7. I skimmed this book. It's mostly letters and questions from the 50 and over crowd about sexuality. I was astounded and saddened by the unhappiness, ignorance of orgasm, inability to ask for what they wanted/needed from a partner, and loneliness that the letters contained. Boy am I glad that I came along a generation later. I'm sure the answers and advice would be helpful for those that are struggling quietly. The author is informative and tactful.

    8. This book was actually better than I thought it would be. It really debunks the whole myth that sex is over for anyone over 55, and talks about real people, real situations, real needs, real desires. I read about it and the author in a column by Dan Savage, whom I follow. It is not limited to older heterosexual people, either, but to a range. Certainly doesn't cover everything, but it is a start. YES!

    9. Awesome book by an awesome woman.This book is really helpful and reading it has allowed me to reclaim my sexuality. It's straight talk about all the issues around aging and sex, delivered with love and humor and grace. LOVED it!

    10. You don't need to be old to read this book, or to benefit from its collective wisdom. And a diverse set of wisdom it is; pansexual in its truest sense.

    11. This is one of those "5 stars for some chapters and 0 stars for others" kind of book. Not a 3 star kind of book at all, but that is how it averages out.
