50 Shades of Grand

July 29th, 2012

50 Shades of Grand By Dr. Dorree Lynn, Ph.D. NABBW’s Expert on Boomer Women Sexuality “He follows with two sharp thrusts, and he freezes, pouring himself into me as he finds his release”… Shocked? Irritated? Excited? This quote is from the Book, “50 Shades of Grey” by E.L. James, which gives us explicit erotic scenes and a look into a world full of racy sexual fetishes. Whereas Harlequin novels once grabbed the hearts of so many women reading in private, this New York Times Bestseller now grabs the attention of women of all ages who, thanks to e-readers and a simple cover, are... Read More

Day Trips & Hotel Sex

June 6th, 2012

Day Trips & Hotel Sex By Dr. Dorree Lynn, Ph.D. NABBW’s Expert on Boomer Women Sexuality Sometimes it seems like there’s nothing better than taking a trip with that special someone, spending the day seeing the sights and finishing the night with some nice, no holds barred hotel sex. 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... Read More

Why Can\’t You Hear Me?

April 25th, 2012

WHY CAN\’T YOU HEAR ME? 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... Read More

Mirror Mirror, on the Wall, Can I Still Be Sexy at All?

July 7th, 2011

Mirror Mirror, on the Wall, Can I Still Be Sexy at All? 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,... Read More

Who Says Younger is Sexier?

June 10th, 2011

Who Says Younger is Sexier? 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 are supposed... Read More

Good Food for Good Sex

February 10th, 2011

Good Food for Good Sex By Dr. Dorree Lynn NABBW’s Boomer Women Sexuality Expert We are not going to tell you what foods to eat. 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. Some foods... Read More

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

December 14th, 2010

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. (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... Read More

Hot and Heavy

November 29th, 2010

Hot and Heavy By Dr. Dorree Lynn, NABBW’s Boomer Women Sexuality Expert We all know it’s not healthy to be overweight, but it’s a myth that fat people, even very obese people, don’t make love. 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 sexual interaction.... Read More

Getting an STD From Your Partner During Midlife

September 22nd, 2010

Dear Dr. Dorree, I started seeing this really nice guy about four months ago, and I was really starting to like him, but I just found out he gave me gonorrhea! 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 use condoms... Read More
