Assissted Loving: The Journey Through Sexuality and Aging

“Ginger Manley addresses many complex issues of love, sex, and aging in an open and wonderful way. Instead of comparing us to randy 20-year-olds, she listens to the concerns of more than 87 older individuals- Manley will present a workshop titled “How To Get Banned In the Bible Belt: Writing About Senior Sexuality In Long-Term Care” at the Consortium’s conference in SeptemberMany of Manley’s answers are heartwarming and reassuring, some are frank and factual, and some may stretch your thinking-if you’re set on believing that your sex life is headed downhill even before you apply for Medicare. Her responses are respectful, generous, deeply thoughtful, human, funny, and wise. They are filled with the kind of information your mother never told you, and they come from the depths of her experience-she’s a registered nurse; she’s a university professor; she’s a certified sex therapist; she’s been in the field for over three decades, and she’s a really smart, curious, woman with a huge heart and the courage to call it the way she sees it.” Gina Ogden, PhD, AASECT certified Sex Therapist and Supervisor, author “Expanding the Practice of Sex Therapy” (Routledge, 2013)
