Event description

Description

“[Sex as we get older] gets better because we understand our bodies more – but it’s hard to have a robust sex life if you just can’t kneel!” – Jane Fonda

Growing older doesn’t need to mean the end of your sex life. Many older adults maintain an active, emotionally and physically fulfilling sex life into their 80s and beyond, and consider physical intimacy with their partners essential to their wellbeing.

Join our expert panel as they discuss the challenges – and also the joysof sex later in life. This forum will dispel the myths about aging and sex, covering topics including sexual expression, expanding our definition of sex, barriers to physical intimacy for couples in residential aged care, and concerns particular to older LGBTI Australians.

Come along, join the discussion – and remember, it’s not a question of age, but of desire, intimacy and understanding.
