Course Description

The myth is that sexual expression stops at fifty. Actually, sexuality changes and requires learning new skills to accommodate our aging bodies. The last third of life requires discussion of major changes in sexual expression and expectations. Regrettably, many of our age group are uncomfortable talking about sex—there is a “conspiracy of silence” around sex. This six-week course will address how aging affects our sexuality. Topics include: anatomy and physiology of sexual pleasure; male and female changes with aging; erectile dissatisfaction; orgasm inequality; sexless marriage; spontaneous and responsive desire; desire discrepancy; nonpenetrative sex; masturbation; communication, authenticity, and vulnerability; health and longevity; and changing times in marital fidelity. Dr. Haslam has taught human sexual diversity at OLLI at Duke for the past four years. We will use videos, minimal lectures, and discussion. Laughter in class is encouraged, as we take sex much too seriously.  Lecture (plus Questions) Facilitated Discussion Listening to Music or Other Audio Viewing Videos
