Our society believes destructive, limiting myths about sex and aging and, unfortunately, many seniors have internalized these myths. Joan Price shatters the myths and shares the most common questions that boomers, seniors and elders ask her. She’ll answer those questions, too — in the candid, upbeat manner that led the media to dub her “senior sexpert.”
Joan Price, our keynote speaker, calls herself an advocate for ageless sexuality. She’s known by the media as the “voice of senior sex.” She is the author of four books about sex and aging, including the award-winning Naked at Our Age: Talking Out Loud About Senior Sex and Sex After Grief: Navigating Your Sexuality After Losing Your Beloved. At age 77, Joan continues to talk out loud about senior sex — partnered or solo. Find Joan and her books, webinars and blog at joanprice.com. This workshop, intended for both individuals and those in relationships, will explore many facets of sexuality, love and relationships. Strategies for keeping us and our relationships emotionally and sexually passionate will be explored, and myths and misinformation about aging and sexuality will be debunked with scientifically and medically accurate data.
