This book is written for anyone who's noticed that sex is "different" from midlife and into old age. Bernie Zilbergeld, a renowned sex therapist and expert in both men's sexuality and couple's changing sexuality, looks critically at how things change, and don't, as people age. This book offers stories and solutions to help anyone who is experiencing changes in their sexual desire or function due to aging, chronic illness, or disability.
The book features the author's own story of changing sexual function due to his chronic illness and stories of many other individuals and couples that illustrate how they cope and adapt as their bodies change with age and chronic disease.
The author believes that with intention and communication, couples can find rewarding and pleasurable intimacy with each other all of their lives, regardless of their physical health or abilities. The tone is upbeat and encouraging, but also realistic and practical.
