Clients and Audiences Rave about Joan Price's Presentations

Joan Price on a virtual speaking engagement in Nijmegen, Netherlands“Thank you so much for ‘What I Wish I’d Known about Sex and Relationships When I Was Your Age.’ Students were wildly enthusiastic! You really rock it. I enjoyed it very much, and so did the 170 students. They found it an eye-opener to hear someone speak so openly about sex, especially someone of your age, and from the States. They loved your openness – even on very personal experiences – and your willingness to answer their questions. And off course your infectious laugh! They approached me afterwards to thank me for inviting you. They loved it!”


Dr. Maerten H. Prins, Instructor, Radboud Universiteit, Nijmegen, the Netherlands

“Joan Price is an amazing educator. She provides a wealth of information, ideas, and lived experience, and delivers it in a way that’s relatable and never condescending. Every time I see her speak, I fall in love a little more. Book her for your event!”

“Joan is an absolute pleasure to work with. Her virtual presentation – 7 Steps to Reclaiming Sexual Pleasure after 50 – Partnered or Solo – was a huge hit. We received several requests to bring her back. Joan’s ability to make ‘taboo’ subjects comfortable, educational and fun is amazing. Even through Zoom, her warmth and knowledge shine through. My heartfelt gratitude goes to Joan for making my event an effortless success!”

Michele Mangrum, Manager, CJE SeniorLife, Chicago

  • “Great talk by Joan Price. I think she was the best speaker at any CJE event I attended.”
  • “She’s a hoot. Great presentation. My husband took lots of notes. Uh oh.”
  • “Joan is awesome; knowledgeable, straightforward and humorous in her approach. I’m a fan!”
  • “Having taught at the university level for many years, I’m aware that people’s attention begins to wander after an hour and a half. In this case the speaker was outstanding and my attention remained riveted on what she had to say. Thank you for scheduling this informative and entertaining presentation!”

Attendees, CJE Senior Life, Chicago

“A smashing success! Joan knocked it out of the park with three amazing virtual presentations for the Denver Public Library. All three were seamless and enjoyable for everyone. Joan’s vivacity shines through, even in a virtual environment, easing any tension that might exist around such a touchy topic. Joan is easy to work with, reliable in both communication and action, and her presentation style is wry and witty!”

Tara Bannon Williamson, Senior Librarian, Park Hill Branch Library, Denver CO

  • “Masterful presentation. You are an incredibly effective public speaker. Something in your personal style pulls others into a seemingly close or even intimate space in which you share personal stories effectively by way of making important larger points. Your viewers/listeners are lured in because you’ve allowed them in on secrets, on personal things, and they come away feeling special and included. It’s a power that you have.”


  • “I cannot say enough good things about your keynote. It was definitely the highlight of the day. I always enjoy listening to you. I feel you’re always teaching me things. You shine on camera. You absolutely sparkle, you captivate your audience, you are perfectly in your element.”

Attendees, Sex Down South virtual conference, Sept. 2020

“Thank you, Joan, for being our Sex Geek and teaching us so much, listening to all of our concerns, and being that special sex educator/teacher to continue to guide us.” “Thank you for your comprehensive and thoughtful workshop on sex and aging.  I’m married for the 2nd time and learning so much about our changing world.” “I’m 75 and I’m blown away by this whole new world of openness and information about sexuality for people my age. Sex really is as normal a part of life as eating and breathing, and your workshop showed me that that talking about sex is no more dangerous than talking about the last restaurant I enjoyed.” “In your workshop I learned a great deal more about what men’s needs are as they have seemed to change considerably.  Men are just as much in need of touch, cuddling, and kissing as women are.  It was great to listen to the guys talk about their needs for intimacy and love.”

Attendees at Joan’s workshop, “Ask Me, I’ll Tell You: Women and Men Talk Out Loud about Sex and Aging.”

“REFRESHING, ENERGIZING AND MOTIVATING are just some of the words that come to mind when referring to your presentation, Fitness on the Road, during the 2008 NADA Lifestyle Center recently held in San Francisco. Your enthusiasm for your topic shines through your presentation and I am sure the audience will be practicing your techniques and exercises not only at home, but the next time they are ‘on the road.’ The 2008 NADA Lifestyle Center was a great success and your participation helped make that happen.”

Christine M. Marshall, Convention Program Manager, National Automobile Dealers of America

“Joan is absolutely charming, totally honest in her self-disclosure in the service of teaching us. I would recommend this to any older woman experiencing difficulty or disinterest.” “I liked your warmth and down to earth manner, your sincerity.” “Very straight talk — that was great! Joan was very approachable.”

Participants, Straight Talk about Sex after Sixty workshop at Good Vibrations, Berkeley, CA

“You were frank and blunt — endearingly so.” “I liked that you let conversation take place, and that we were able to disclose and relate, regardless of age.” “I think your book and workshop would be great for people of all ages, especially, but not limited to, those who have gone through accidents, trauma, cancer/disease, chronic fatigue, depression, physical disability, and childbirth.” “This was a wonderful workshop, very inspiring. Lots to look forward to!”
