New Chapter of Acclaimed Video Series!
SEBASTOPOL, CA (March 19, 2019) – When 57-year-old Joan Price met Sonoma County artist Robert Rice, age 64, she embarked on a love affair that would change her life forever. Writing about their relationship led Price on a path to become an internationally known senior sex expert and advocate, revolutionizing the notion that sex has no expiration date. Today, the acclaimed 75-year-old author and Sebastopol resident is sharing her ageless sexuality message for seniors as she teams up with noted sex educator jessica drake in their upcoming film, “jessica drake’s Guide to Wicked Sex: Senior Sex,” beginning production in April 2019.
Media members interested in attending the shoot in Los Angeles, or interviewing Price or drake, may email PR@GuideToWickedSex.com.
“I am thrilled to join with jessica, one of the leading sexual rights advocates, to share my message of sexual empowerment for seniors,” Price said. “Sex in our later years has its challenges, but sexual pleasure can be lifelong — with the right education, an open mind, a spirit of adventure, and a sense of humor. My mission is to provide information to help seniors enjoy sexual pleasure through the decades ahead.”
The newest edition of “Guide to Wicked Sex” brings together Price with noted performer, director and sex expert jessica drake, as they take viewers into the world of sexually-zesty aging. They explain — and performers illustrate — how couples and singles can keep the fire going and the body responding lifelong. This collaboration between the two sexperts will offer insights and tips for better intimacy after age 50, 60, 70, and beyond.
“I’m so excited to begin work on this newest installment of our award-winning series and demonstrate that sex can get better with age,” drake said. “I’m grateful to share in this effort with the amazing Joan Price who brings her vast knowledge and experience on the topic of sex for seniors. We’re looking forward to changing some attitudes and debunking misconceptions with this exciting edition of ‘Guide to Wicked Sex.’ This may be my favorite guide in the series and it hasn’t even been shot yet.”
“Guide to Wicked Sex: Senior Sex” will feature explicit demonstrations along with sex scenes illustrating sex tips and techniques. The episode will feature people sharing their talents in a unique setting that is both instructional and compelling. The new edition of the series takes viewers through a variety of topics, from how aging affects our bodies and responsiveness, relationship communication, expanding what “great sex” can be, overcoming the obstacles, and staying sexual while solo.
Price’s journey as a senior sex advocate began 18 years ago after meeting artist Robert Rice. At age 61, she wrote “Better Than I Ever Expected: Straight Talk About Sex After Sixty” (Seal Press, 2006) to celebrate the delights of older-life sexuality. She followed that with “Naked at Our Age: Talking Out Loud About Senior Sex” (Seal Press, 2011) and “The Ultimate Guide to Sex After 50” (Cleis Press, 2014) to address the problems and challenges of sex in an aging body.
Robert Rice passed away from cancer in 2008, seven years after they met and two years after they married. Joan Price continues her work to transform attitudes about senior sex. She is currently writing a new book on a topic that is sorely needed: “Sex After Grief: Navigating Your Sexuality After Loss of Your Beloved.” “I couldn’t have written this book ten years ago or even two years ago,” she says, “But now it’s time.” Price writes intimately about her own grief journey and includes other grievers’ experiences.
Before Price became a sex educator, she had two other professions. She was a high school English teacher for 22 years, the last 12 at Petaluma High School. A few years after a 1979 near-fatal automobile accident Price became a fitness professional, teaching that “exercise should be a treat, not a treatment.” She wrote several books about health and fitness, including “The Anytime, Anywhere Exercise Book: 300+ Quick and Easy Exercises You Can Do Whenever You Want.” Now, she teaches popular contemporary line dancing classes in Sebastopol and Santa Rosa, California.
