Babyboomers are not through revolutionizing our society. Now, as they start to become seniors, they are taking along their expectations of an active, fulfilling sex life. Having grown up with The Pill, today's seniors have a different mindset about sex from their parents: intimacy, romance, even recreation. And that other pill (the little blue one) doesn't hurt either. Even nursing homes are now adopting policies so they don't "interrupt" their patients' private moments. Guests are Joan Price, author of Better Than I Ever Expected: Straight Talk about Sex After Sixty, Hattie Wiener, author of Sex and the Single Senior: A Cougar's Search for Love, author/psychiatrist/sex therapist Susan Delphine Delaney, age transition specialist Patricia Weaver, psychologist Dr. Michael Nuccitelli and Rabbi Ed Weinsberg (Conquer Prostate Cancer: How Medicine, Faith, Love and Sex Can Renew Your Life).
