Better Than I Ever Expected: Straight Talk about Sex After Sixty by Joan Price (Seal Press, 2006) is an upbeat, frank, woman-to-woman friendly book that acknowledges the challenges and celebrates the delights of older-life sexuality.
Yes, there are challenges to sex after sixty, but there are also creative solutions. There's nothing hotter than sex between people who know their own bodies, are crazy about each other, relish taking lots of time, and honor both the physicality and the spirituality of sex. "I just don't think people can get there without a whole lot of life experience," writes Joan Price. "We're redefining this aging stuff."
There are plenty of books and magazine articles filled with doom and gloom about midlife and older sexuality, how our tissues wither along with our libidos, and we might as well give it up. That isn't this book. Here older women reveal--in their own words--how they successfully use their personal power, the joy and intimacy of their relationships, and useful tools of all sorts--from sex toys to humor--to experience terrific and satisfying sex.
Better Than I Ever Expected: Straight Talk about Sex After Sixty combines memoir with candid comments and tales from lively, earthy women who aren't afraid to tell, along with helpful tips from experts for staying sexy through the decades.
