The Joy of Sex Beyond 70

The Joy of Sex Beyond 70
  6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Tammy Whynot leads a frank and honest panel discussion where we talk openly about sex and ageing, from affection to fetish.

We open with a short performance of What Tammy Needs to Know About Getting Old And Having Sex. The show is an international, intergenerational mission to ask all the difficult questions, talk to those who really know and find out the truth about sex, and all its associations, at midlife and beyond. Find out more about Tammy WhyNot and her mission here.

A panel discussion and Q&A will follow. As Alex Comfort, gerontologist and author of the 1972 bestseller ‘The Joy of Sex’, emphasised growing old does not mean desire will diminish. Older age can be an opportunity for new and different intimate relationships, with sexual health advice high on the agenda.

But does society still stigmatise sex in the over 70s? What barriers might older people face in continuing a romantic life? And how can nursing staff support safe sexual expression and intimacy?

This event is part of the RCN exhibition: Aspects of Age, looking at the history of ageing and care of older people.

Cost: Free of Charge
