Sex After... Women Share How Intimacy Changes as Life Changes

Wednesday, February 4

12pm Program & Lunch

Sex After... is filled with advice in the voices of 150 women, from waitresses to CEOs, ages twenty to eighty-eight. Their stories are raw and prescriptive, describing the challenges that can arise in each phase of a woman’s life – from navigating the hooking-up culture in the twenties, to sexuality after pregnancy, midlife malaise, breast cancer, menopause, divorce, widowhood. The interviews with ordinary women are bolstered by expert commentary from sex researchers, gynecologists, oncologists and therapists, coming together in an all-encompassing exploration and explanation of everything about sex you are dealing with, or are curious about that lies ahead. The bestselling author of The Secret Lives of Wives offers an honest, candid and intimate guide to enjoying a long, satisfying sex life.
