Welcome to Better Than I Ever Expected!

My book, Better Then I Ever Expected: Straight Talk About Sex After Sixty (Seal Press), will be out in January 2006. Please see for a description of this sassy, sexy book combining my personal story with tips and tales from lusty, sexually seasoned women. We're proving that our society's view of older women as sexless is wrong, wrong, wrong.

I'd like to invite you --whether or not you're a woman over sixty -- to participate in discussions of ageless sexuality. Please choose a first name of your choice and your age to identify yourself, and feel free to post comments and questions regarding this hot and important topic.

To start you out, what makes sex after sixty better than you ever expected, personally?

I'd like your candid views, and I hope you'll express them respectfully so that all women will feel welcome to read and post, and won't feel they've wandered into a sleazy place. Thank you, and welcome to our community!

  1. A friend of mine got married for the first time about 10 years ago when we was in her early 50's. She had had many boyfriends and lovers before that, and her new husband (a divorced man of similar age) admitted that he worried she'd quickly tire of monogamy after all her years of constant 'variety.'

    Her witty reply: "The advantage of getting married so late in life is that we'll both be dead before I'd have time to get bored with you!" She's in her 60's now and is definitely not bored yet.

  2. Funny story, Tina! In fact, I have a great chapter with tales of women who led wild lives in their youth and settled down in later life with a partner who keeps them happy. I think we're less likely to get bored at our age because we know ourselves and what we like (in bed and out), and we've learned to communicate this to our partners. We've also learned how to keep a long-term relationship hot -- and the book has lots of spicy examples of that!

    After years in a marriage without sex, I was surprised and excited to discover that I was still desirable!

    I am thin, and so don't have excess sags and bags, although my breasts are large and the cleavage is beginning to be less attractive, it hasn't yet become an issue. When I becomes an issue, I'll have a breast lift.

    It takes a little effort to be beautiful and desirable after 60, but worth every minute....worth every dollar.
