I loved the guest post on orgasm that Walker Thornton did while I was away. Her reminder that pleasure comes in many forms–not all of it orgasm-centered–is something we can all learn to appreciate, especially at midlife or older. Senior sex is more mature sex, in every sense: from how we think about it to how we do it.
It’s more than intercourse, it’s intimacy.
Thinking about what Walker implied, which is that we are often exhorted to have bigger and better orgasms as the goal of sexual intimacy, I was reminded of this post of mine, which is actually one of my favorites. I wrote it after I’d seen one too many articles telling me that seniors are — or SHOULD–be having the best sex of their lives at this age.
Seriously? I was sure those writers were smoking crack, and here’s what I wrote back then. I’d love to know what you think. Here’s the old post…and then I hope you’ll return to say a few words.
