No, We're Not Shutting Up

I had two very different experiences on Sunday, Feb. 12.

1. I read Louise Raflin's petulant plea to Boomers to hush up about their sex lives in the San Francisco Chronicle Magazine.

2. I spoke to a full house at Book Passage in Corte Madera, CA, talking about and reading from my book, Better Than I Ever Expected: Straight Talk about Sex After Sixty. The women and men in the audience displayed an attitude that was far from the "it's-all-about-me" egocentrism that Rafkin condescendingly described. They were thoughtful, communicative, vibrant, funny, and passionate.

"Could they please stop writing about it?" Rafkin begs. Not a chance. We've only just begun.
