How To Have Your Best Sex After 50

How To Have Your Best Sex After 50 [EXPERT]
Love, Sex

Boston Sex Therapist Dr. Aline Zoldbrod tells you how!

You can make a commitment to get professional help for longstanding sexual issues you have had. You've got the time, and you hopefully have the money. I have had several cases of women in their 60's learning to enjoy their sexuality in a new way. One woman was still a virgin, because she had always had vaginismus, a condition where the muscles surrounding the vagina tense up and intercourse is impossible. But it's very curable.

She ended up finding a fella and we cured the vaginismus. She was finally able to have sex, including intercourse, and she loved it. Another woman in her 50's, who believed "my body is just a way of carrying my head around," learned the joys of touch and sex with her beloved husband through sex therapy. She said, " I can't believe this is the same body I walked into this office with." Over 50? Don't Age Gracefully, Live Agelessly
