Forget the hype—sex for older adults can be just as good, if not better, than when you were in your 20s and 30s! Living a sexually fulfilling life is as simple as expanding your definition of sex and being willing to engage in conversations with your sexual partners about what you want in sexual relationships. The presentation will cover how to increase or sustain sexual desire as you age, accommodations for dealing with age-related challenges and sexy tips to spice up your sex life. It’s a myth that older adults don’t have sex. Research shows older adults have active sex lives, feel a great sense of well-being, and engage in a wide range of sexual behaviors – and you can too.
