Often, our daily lives get the best of us. We give our all at the office and then we’re give out by the time we get home. Sometimes we have to remove ourselves from the mundane day-to-day, get out of town for a bit, and just spend some quality time with someone we care about. The benefits of hotel sex …

By Dr. Dorree Lynn, Ph.D. NABBW's Expert on Boomer Women Sexuality We all know the overused generalization that Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus, but sometimes when we communicate with our partner it seems as though we\'re millions of miles away from one another, trying to have a conversation while actually standing on Mars and Venus. Couples often get into communication conflicts without even knowing whether they are differing about style or content. As with sex, many men prefer to cut right to the chase, while women may tend to talk on and on and on… …

By Dr. Dorree Lynn, Ph.D. NABBW's Expert on Boomer Women Sexuality Ever hear the expression "inside every older lady is a younger lady wondering what happened?" Guess what? You still are that younger lady, you just evolved to be more of yourself and along the way your body evolved, too. Each season of life is beautiful in its own way. In our youth-focused culture, concerns about body image are a major libido killer after 50, especially for women (although it certainly impacts men, too). If you don\'t have a partner, you may wonder…

By  Dr. Dorree Lynn, Ph.D. NABBW's Expert on Boomer Women Sexuality Just about everyone, that’s who!  Gazillions of messages every day try to convince us that young—and only young—is sexy.  Sure, the media throws us a politically correct nod, showing attractive seniors supposedly shining our way through our golden years, even if a bit battered and bent. But those token gestures can hardly compete with all the TV, movies, radio, popular music, magazines, and even wrappers on gum and panty hose—all full of images of young, sexy people whom we ar…

By  Dr. Dorree Lynn, Ph.D. NABBW's Expert on Boomer Women Sexuality Ladies, if you sometimes think that your man seems deaf, dumb, and blind, that may actually be partially true. At least the deaf part is pretty common. Many men as they age tend to lose some of their hearing at the higher range where a woman’s voice may mostly reside.  If your guy seems to be missing some of what you’ve been saying lately, there’s a good chance he might benefit from a hearing test. Partial hearing loss is far more common than most people realize.  Countless arguments an…

By  Dr. Dorree Lynn, Ph.D. NABBW's Expert on Boomer Women Sexuality Individuals  and  couples  often develop  their  own  sex  styles  that partially  reflect  their  personalities and relationships. Every sex style is good if you both enjoy it and it leads to satisfying sex. Experimenting with another style once in a while can be exciting, too. Like food, variety really does add spice to life. Occasionally, a rigid sex style can block you from experiencing other kinds of lovemaking. Remember,  no  individual  or  couple  is  ever  a…

Here are some ways to let the things you say nurture and grow your relationship. Use  “I”  statements.  Take ownership of your feelings and thoughts.  State your personal beliefs and feelings clearly and plainly. For example, instead of “You are so loud and annoying. Why do you keep bothering me?” you can say “I felt scared when you slammed the door. I would really like it if you could please be gentl…

We believe green is good. However, some who live long never touch the stuff  and  there  are  plenty  of  cultures  that  eat,  drink,  and  be merry and somehow stay healthy while they’re doing it. Their foods  are  mostly  unprocessed  and  they  tend  to  eat  them  in moderation. On the whole, America’s fast food diets seem to be health killers.  But no one diet is  right  for  everyone.  Pay attention to what you do eat. …

By Dr. Dorree Lynn NABBW's Boomer Women Sexuality Expert "Wouldn’t you love somebody to love?" Both Grace Slick and the late, great rocker Janis Joplin certainly thought so. (Remember, Grace and the Jefferson Airplane sang "Somebody to Love?" And Joplin was famous for "I Need a Man to Love"...) In today’s fast-paced, ever-changing world, many people in their 50s, 60s, 70s (and beyond) suddenly find themselves unwillingly and often unexpectedly alone. Unless you want to give up shared sex entirely and live by yourself, the ti…

In the real world, sex is more likely to be impeded by anxiety than adiposity. Fear of rejection, fear of not meeting the partner’s expectations, and fear of not being able to perform are among the most common emotional barriers to intercourse. Overweight people suffer all these problems in spades. The body-image and social pressures they endure create numerous obstacles to sexu…

Can you believe it, at my age? I feel like a fool. —Katrina, 69 Katrina, No one likes to hear they picked up a sexually transmitted disease (STD). We tend to think this sort of thing only happens to teenagers and prostitutes, but of course, that’s not true. STDs are passed around at every age— even to very nice people like you. That’s why we say everyone, even people who don’t have to worry about pregnancy, need to u…

Sex starts long before bed. A hug by the sink, a kiss on the neck on the way to work, holding hands at the movies, and other affectionate touching can get a woman more in the mood. Even helping around the house so she can have some downtime is foreplay for many! Make your woman feel desirable. You may have seen her naked a thousand times before, but each time is a privilege and an opportunity to show her that she still turns you on. A slow hand i…
