Isn’t it all about pleasure? Feeling good in our bodies and enjoying moments of intimacy? Sex is possible at any age, when we allow ourselves to drop outdated, ageist ideas of what sex has to look like.
Living a sexually fulfilling life is as simple as expanding your definition of sex and being willing to engage in conversations with sexual partners about what you want in sexual relationships.
In this workshop, we will talk about desire, how to create more of it and what it means to fully engage with your body.
Our sense of ourselves as sexual beings is connected to how we see ourselves, our attitudes about aging, and the kind of relationships we have. Society typically portrays older women as sexless so we have to create our own inspiration for how we show up as older women. Research shows older adults have active sex lives, feel a great sense of well-being, and engage in a wide range of sexual behavior.
