Boynton Beach, FL – Society’s belief that older adults lack interest in sexual activity is a myth.

Dr. Brenda Dressler is an expert and educator on human sexuality and currently writing a book Sex beyond 60: Myths and Facts is a self-help book offering a vast amount of easily accessible information on sexual activity and sexual health that can help resolve problems that men and women have as they age.

“Seniors who are in fairly good health and who have an available and interested sex partner have the potential to experience excitement and orgasm in their 70s and 80s,” says Dr. Dressler. “As people age, desire for sex may diminish, however, the need for caring and intimate touch remains strong. Touch provides magnificent physical and emotional benefits.”

A sex and health educator for fifty years, Dr. Dressler began her career as a New York City public school teacher in upper Manhattan, where she initiated the first sex education program in the late 1960s that continued through 1984. As a leading sex educator, she was profiled in Newsday in 1989 for her work in developing a sex education program in the high schools.

Topics discussed in Sex beyond 60: Myths and Facts include benefits of sexual activity for seniors, sexual dysfunctions and Food and Drug Administration (FDA-approved treatment options, experimental and promising new treatments, the new sexual revolution in erectile technology, health conditions, disability and sexuality, seniors’ sexual attitudes, sexual activities and satisfaction, sexually transmitted infections, taking and sharing sexual health history, negotiating safer sex and sex in long-term care.
