I'm not a Ph.D. I'm not a CPA. I'm not an M.D. I don't have my MBA and I don't drive a BMW. Heck, I don't even have a JOB. As you can see, I have no initials after my name. I've traveled the highway of life for 77 years and have learned, laughed and cried along the way.

The number one sex problem that I hear from women is the lack of desire for sex. They do still enjoy sex once they get started, they tell me, but they're seldom in the mood ahead of time.

Miley Cyrus, eat your heart out -- sex definitely doesn't end after 40. In fact, the best sex doesn't even happen until many
Really, Miley Cyrus? You think sex ends at 40? You told Matt Lauer that, at 55, he was 'definitely not sexual'? On what planet? Oh, right, the youth planet! Miley, you could teach me plenty about fame, music, handling bad publicity, and, I suppose, twerking. But I could teach you a thing or two about sex.
Is 'senior erotica' a trend? We may never know, because we don't talk much about our erotica appetite or preferences.

August 2, 2008: I crawled into Robert's bed and wrapped my body around his. If I could only get close enough to make the last hour, the last months, disappear. I hugged him tightly, desperately. I wailed his name and listened to his silence, remembering his murmurs, his words of love.
Sex without commitment can work if we believe it can, and we're clear ourselves as well as with our partners about the boundaries. Are we friends first, lovers second?

If a partner is offended that you won't have unprotected sex, please get your clothes back on. Being willing to go to bed with you without protection indicates that he/she did that with other partners... Do you really want to sleep with all the people this person has slept with, and all of those people's casual partners?
By hiding your body and being embarrassed by it, you're buying into our youth-obsessed culture that says that only young, firm, fertile bodies can be sexy and alluring. Let's put that notion to rest right now!
