Author and speaker Joan Price calls herself an "advocate for ageless sexuality." She has been called other things by the media: "senior sexpert," "the beautiful face of senior sex," and --her favorite--"wrinkly sex kitten." Visit Joan's zesty, award-winning blog about sex and aging at www.NakedAtOurAge.com. How did Joan start writing and speaking about senior sex? For fifteen years, Joan was a widely published health and fitness writer. Then at 57, after decades of single life, she fell deeply in love with artist Robert Rice, who was then 64. Their love affair was profound, joyful, and extremely spicy. Their passion, in contrast to society's view of older people as sexless, led Joan at age 61 to write Better Than I Ever Expected: Straight Talk about Sex After Sixty (Seal Press, 2006) to celebrate the delights of older-life sexuality. Robert and Joan married after five years together and had two more years together before Robert died of cancer in 2008. His last request to Joan was "Promise me you'll keep doing your work."
