Hi everyone! Welcome to the A to Z of Sex with me, Dr Lori Beth Bisbey. I am a sex and intimacy coach and psychologist and I’ve spent the last 30 + years helping people to create hot and healthy sexual and intimate relationships. We are working our way through the erotic alphabet one letter at a time. Today the letter is L and L is for Sex After Loss.
This week, I am talking about getting back to a sexual life after loss. The loss of a partner through a breakup or through death can make the idea of having a sexual life again seem distant or even impossible. Few people even want to discuss this subject as it can bring up so many emotions. I will be talking about sex after 70 as well in this episode and breaking the silence around sex in our later years.
Joining me to examine sex after loss is Joan Price calls herself an advocate for ageless sexuality. She is the author of four books about sex and ageing, including the award-winning Naked at Our Age: Talking Out Loud about Senior Sex and her latest: Sex after Grief: Navigating Your Sexuality After Losing Your Beloved. Her award-winning blog has been offering senior sex news, views, and sex toy reviews since 2005. At age 76, Joan continues to talk out loud about senior sex—partnered or solo. She is the co-creator of “Jessica drake’s Guide to Wicked Sex: Senior Sex.” Find Joan and her books, film, and blog at https://joanprice.com.
We talked about the loss of a partner through death at length and were reminded that loss can happen at any age. We spoke at length about sex after the age of 60 and how people can and do enjoy sex well into their later years.
