Meet Joan in Person

I'd love to meet you! Here are the places I'm speaking, signing, and presenting workshops. Please contact your friends in these cities.

(If you're a member of an organization that would be interested in hiring me to speak or present an interactive workshop, please let me know. See my web page for meeting planners.)

[please see updated schedule here.]


Monday, August 14, 8-10 pm, Good Vibrations, 2504 San Pablo Ave, Berkeley, CA . Workshop for men and women: Ask Me, I'll Tell You: Women and Men Talk about Sex and Aging. For many people, sex and aging are two of the hardest topics to talk about. Add in the challenges of communicating across the genders and it can sometimes seem impossible. But Joan Price, ageless sexuality advocate, and author of Better Than I Ever Expected: Straight Talk about Sex After Sixty is here to help! In this interactive and fun discussion night, you'll have a chance to get the answers you're looking for. Joan will guide an evening of conversation and discovery, and will help everyone in the room learn from each other. For couples & singles, men & women. If you're 60+, or you plan to be, this workshop is for you. Preregister at least 24 hours in advance by contacting the Berkeley Good VIbrations at (510) 841-8987 . You will need to give the staff your name, phone number, and a credit card number. $25

** rescheduled: Thursday, Oct. 5, 2006 ** Wednesday, June 7, 6:45-7:45 pm, talk and booksigning before the performance of the fabulously funny "Menopause the Musical" in San Francisco. We'll even get a discount on tickets! (See detailed information in separate post.) Update: that show had to be cancelled because of an air-conditioning failure. We've rescheduled for Thursday, Oct. 5, 2006, and there's a separate blog entry about this. Thanks! -- Joan

** TO BE RESCHEDULED ** Tuesday, August 1, 8-10 pm, Good Vibrations, 1620 Polk Street (at Sacramento Street), San Francisco. Workshop: Straight Talk About Sex After 60 (women only). Yes, sex after sixty has its challenges, but it can also be sizzling and satisfying. Joan Price, ageless sexuality advocate, fitness expert, and author of Better Than I Ever Expected: Straight Talk about Sex After Sixty will help you face the challenges and celebrate the joys of older-age sexuality. By sharing experiences and learning with other women in a spirit of candor, acceptance, creativity, and humor, you’ll take home new tools, techniques, and attitudes that help women over sixty experience hot, joyful sex with or without a partner. Preregister at least 24 hours in advance by contacting the Polk Street Good Vibrations at (415) 345-0400. You will need to give the staff your name, phone number, and a credit card number. $25.

    Thanks for posting your schedule. I put May 2 at Babeland (love this!) down on my calendar. I'd love to hear you talk about one of my favorite subjects! I like your blog. It's a whole different world now! Writers have so many new tools.

    Speaking of tools -- do you know about VagiFem? My gynecologist never told me about it, but my friend did, and it's a good thing for older women to keep us juicy! It's a small pill containing estrogen that comes at the end of a plunger that you insert into the vagina a couple of times a week. You can look it up on the Internet. You get it by prescription.

  2. I enjoyed your talk at Copperfield's. You had a nice combination of reading and story-telling, intermixed with audience participation. It’s rare that I see that high a proportion of men at a book talk. That bodes well for another book about men and sex.
