Media Responses to Naked at Our Age

“Naked at Our Age is simply one of the best sex ed guides I’ve read (and I’ve read a lot of them). Joan collected stories, questions, and input from her blog and book readers and used them as the framework for her book. She doesn’t dodge the hard questions, she uses lots of funny stories, and she shares both the joys and the challenges of sex for seniors. Joan can talk about the difficulties of health issues (including Alzheimer’s), how to open up the conversation about safer sex, and the pleasures of no longer needing to worry about pregnancy, and she does it all with grace, compassion, and humor. Along the way, Joan gets plenty of input and advice from sex educators, therapists, medical professionals, and other experts. While many sex books seem to focus entirely on what the author wants to say, Joan did a great job of bringing the perspective of many different fields and experts to her readers. In some ways, it felt like I was talking to a panel of specialists instead of reading a book. I think that this is why I admire it so much and why Naked at Our Age is going to serve so many people so well.”  Read more here.

Naked at Our Age is really comprehensive: it doesn’t leave out any subject that’s relevant to sexuality for people in midlife and beyond. [Joan Price] and her impressive array of expert contributors cover topics with such expertise and such love for her readers that I as a reader felt well taken care of, with so many answers both to questions I have had and those I never thought of but should have. An abundance of quotes from people aged 50 and over describe their experiences with sex, talk about problems, ask questions, tell what works for them. Much sound practical advice gives resources and solid suggestions. And best of all, the book has heart as well as a healthy dose of lust.” Read more here.

“When I was going through puberty my mom would leave me books and pamphlets about the changes going on in my body. Now I’m bringing her this book … I am going to suggest that her book club read it.” Read more here.
