January 10th, 2011

The Great Joy Ride By Dr. Dorree Lynn NABBW’s Boomer Women Sexuality Expert Psssst. Wanna know a secret? Grownups, even some very grownup grownups, are playing . . . with sex toys! In fact, for couples and singles alike, there is a revolution occurring for people over 50. Adult sex toys, pornography, erotic literature, game playing, and other pleasure products and practices have become much more mainstream than ever before.

Plenty of Fish in the Sea: Seeking Love After 50. 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.

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 use condoms... Read More

Seven Things Women Wish Men Knew About Sex

August 22nd, 2010

Chivalry is not dead. Despite being equals, women still appreciate men who hold the door, pull out the chair, and treat them with respect. 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 is a turn-on.... Read More
