Intimacy after 50: Positive, Pleasurable—Uniquely Yours
Presenter: Jane Steckbeck, Sexologist and Certified Sex Coach
Please join us for this five-week workshop series for partnered people and singles at
As we age, we experience very real physiological changes that can affect our ability to enjoy sex. The more we understand our bodies the better we can adapt and continue to delight in sensual and sexual pleasures.
Each week will focus on a different aspect of maintaining vital sexuality after 50, and incorporate hands-on lessons in communication, which is one of the most important and overlooked aspects of sexual satisfaction. Participants will receive practical information and develop new skills that will enable them to be the masters of their pleasure at age 50 and beyond!
Week Three Monday March 6th
Vital Sexuality After 50 for Women and their Partners
Women receive the message that after 50, they are shriveled, non-sexual and unsexy…and for many women, nothing is further from the truth! In this workshop, we’ll discuss the normal changes associated with menopause and aging, and practical steps women can take to continue to enjoy sex and intimacy for as long as they’d like. We’ll explore products that can help continue sparking desire and can help keep sex pleasurable.
Week Four Monday March 13th
Currently, people over 50 have the highest rate of new sexually transmitted infections (STIs) in the United States. This isn’t hard to understand given our overall inability to communicate about sex, and the assumption many people make that barriers exist to prevent pregnancy as opposed to preventing STIs. With pregnancy no longer a concern, people are not using barriers—and STIs are now a significant concern. Come and learn: how you can protect yourself if you are new to the over-50 dating scene; what it really means to “know” someone’s STI status; how to have an empowered safer sex conversation; questions you should be asking; information you want to insist upon; and how to be ethical in disclosing your own STI status. We will review products that should be a part of every savvy sensual senior person’s tookkit!
Week Five Monday March 20th
Many health care providers are not comfortable talking about sex with their senior patients for a variety of reasons: lack of sexological training, age bias, or their own personal discomfort with sex. For the healthy, sexually active senior, getting factual, accurate and non-judgmental information about changing bodies and troublesome sexual concerns can be difficult at best. In this workshop, we’ll explore how you can get your health care provider working for you…or get a referral.

$15 for each of the five week classes OR

What already happened:
Week One Monday Feb. 20th
Who in this culture ever learns to talk candidly and comfortably about sex? Not many of us, especially if we’re over 50! In this session we will briefly discuss why talking about sex can be challenging for many of us, and how to overcome challenges by recognizing that sex is healthy and normal. Together, we will practice having conversations about sexual interests, desires and changing bodies—leaving shame, embarrassment and discomfort in the past.
Week Two Monday Feb. 27th
Mother Culture would have you believe that softer penises and less predictable erections that accompany aging will end your sex life (or that taking a little pill can fix your sex life)…when in truth, for many men and women over 50, sex has never been better! At this workshop, we’ll explore the normal changes associated with aging and how a positive attitude and flexibility can help men enjoy sex and intimacy for many years.
