Sex Ed Lecture Series: Let’s Talk about Sex and Aging

Wednesday, June 23, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Let’s Talk about Sex and Aging. Sex after 50, 60, 70 and beyond has challenges, but it can be rich and joyful if we learn, adapt, and explore. Let’s throw out the stereotypes about older-age sexuality, debunk the myths, and send you home with solid information and a new attitude about older-age sexuality and how to talk about it.

For sex educators, counselors, and therapists who work with older adults. Except for sexuality educators who work exclusively with young people, we’ll all be faced with addressing the sexual pleasure and sexual health concerns of older people as our clientele ages. There’s no end date for sexuality, so sexuality educators need to be prepared with knowledge and resources.

Register here. All lectures are recorded and edited and made available to people who register in advance of the lecture, as part of their regular registration.
