I’ll Have What They’re Having: The Science of Sexuality and Aging
Time & Location
About the Event
Many people think that sex inevitably stops when you get older. Some believe menopause signals the end of a woman’s sexual life. Some think loss of erections means no more sex for men. A look at the science of sex and aging reminds us the truth is far different from those antiquated beliefs. The University of Michigan and AARP’s latest report shows that 61% of those 65-80 years old say that sex matters to their quality of life and 73% report being sexually satisfied. Join us to learn more about aging and sexuality.
By the end of this presentation participants will:
- Describe three (3) major biopsychosocial challenges of older adults’ sexuality,
- Discuss three (3) benefits of older adults’ sexuality.
- Apply one (1) aspect of this training into your work.
