About this Book
A The Baby Boomers are hitting 60+ at a rapid pace and need to learn how to create a “New Normal.” This friendly and informative book explains how age can bring a depth of affection and comfortable acceptance that creates fresh freedom, deep delight, and a renewed ability to surrender to pleasure. Honest and compassionate, the authors confront issues many couples hesitate to bring up from body image and menopause to the changing experience of orgasms—then offer frank and detailed answers.
