Talking Out Loud About Senior Sex - #cconseniorsex

CatalystCon Joan Price Sunday, September 16, 2012 12:00pm-1:10pm


  1. Joan Price shares her spicy and often humorous experiences as an advocate for senior sexuality. She talks frankly about the most interesting, surprising, and provocative questions and concerns that seniors raise about their sexuality, along with the special challenges and satisfactions of blogging/talking/writing about senior sex. You’ll learn how a couple of shock jocks tried to close down the “old lady sex blog,” how Joan’s commitment to raising important and unnerving topics led to her appearance on ABC News Nightline, and what her 1961 classmates said to her at her 50th high school reunion.
  2. Author and speaker Joan Price, age 68, calls herself an “advocate for ageless sexuality.” She has been called other things by the media: “senior sexpert,” “the beautiful face of senior sex,” and—her favorite—“wrinkly sex kitten.” At age 61, Joan wrote Better Than I Ever Expected: Straight Talk about Sex After Sixty (Seal Press, 2006) to celebrate the delights of older-life sexuality—especially her spicy love affair with artist Robert Rice, who became her husband. She followed that book up five years later with Naked at Our Age: Talking Out Loud about Senior Sex after hundreds of readers sent her questions about improving their own senior sex lives. Formerly a high school English teacher, Joan also teaches popular contemporary line dance classes (which she calls “the most fun you can have with both feet on the floor”) in Sebastopol and Santa Rosa, California.
