Description

This book presents the myths and facts of sexual ageing in a thoughtful and straightforward manner that celebrates the sexuality of our elders. Dr. Hammond rejects not only the misconception that sexuality is neutralised with age, but also the related view (held by many elders) that sexual expression should be curtailed as one advances in years. She encourages both young and old to appreciate and take pride in their individual sexual being, and that of others, from birth to death. Cultural, religious, and societal influences affecting our views of human sexuality are described and discussed. Diverse forms of sexual expression are explored, with attention given to changes at mid-life and to health-related concerns. Helpful suggestions for family members and counsellors are also offered. Specific situations encountered by families, couples, single persons, homosexuals, and nursing home residents are covered. Many of Dr Hammond's insightful observations will evoke profound reflection among loved ones, friends, and caregivers, who must first come to understand their own sexual attitudes, and the myths hidden therein, before they can begin to appreciate and eventually encourage the sexuality of their elders.
