Joan Price is talking out loud about later-life sexuality. With a foreword by Betty Dodson, Naked at Our Age candidly addresses senior sexuality in all its colors—the challenges, disappointments, and surprises, as well as the delights and the love stories. Naked at Our Age gives people over fifty a voice to tell stories of their past and present sex lives, ask questions, and get straightforward advice and information from experts. No topic is off-limits.

In Naked at Our Age, women and men—coupled and single, straight and gay—talk candidly about how their sex lives and relationships have changed with age, and about how they see themselves, their partners, or their single life. Many are having unsatisfying sex, or no sex at all, and are seeking advice. Price presents their personal stories, and follows up with tips from sex therapists, health professionals, counselors, sex educators, and other knowledgeable experts. Named "Outstanding Self-Help Book” of 2012 by the American Society of Journalists and Authors and winner of the 2012 Book Award from the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors, and Therapists, Naked at Our Age is an entertaining and indispensable guide to handling and understanding the issues of senior sex and relationships.

Industry Reviews

Naked at Our Age: Talking Out Loud About Senior Sex is the 2012 recipient of the American Society of Journalists and Authors Service/Self Help Award. "Hang on, because Naked at Our Age breaks all the barriers and goes where ordinary books on this subject dare not. Some readers may be shocked ... and others delighted by this bold ... and uncensored approach. The message is clear: As far as sex in the senior years goes ... the best is yet to come. --Dr. Dean Edell, M.D., Emmy-award-winning host of the Dr. Dean Edell Program and author of the best-selling book Eat, Drink and Be Merry "Told through the voices of real people interspersed with great advice from smart professionals, Naked at Our Age is an important resource for anyone who wants to keep pleasure and sensuality in their lives ..." --Candida Royalle, pioneer of woman-friendly erotica and author of How to Tell a Naked Man What to Do "[W]ith irresistible enthusiasm, Joan Price tackles outdated expectations and promotes ... new ways to celebrate sexuality throughout the later years. --Peggy Brick, president of the Sexuality and Aging Consortium at Widener University and co-author of Older, Wiser, Sexually Smarter: 30 Sex Ed Lessons for Adults Only "[T]he impact of the book is as much inspirational as it is educational." --Pepper Schwartz, PhD, author of Prime: Adventures and Advice on Sex, Love, and the Sensual Years
