‘If you want your sexual exuberance to match mine three decades after age 40, start listening to your elders’. That’s the advice American author Joan Price gave to Miley Cyrus in a 2013 open letter, after Cyrus announced that over-40s don’t have sex.

In 2011, Price wrote Naked at Our Age: Talking out Loud about Senior Sex, which explored the challenges, delights, surprises and frustrations of sex for older people. The book won awards and was praised for its warmth and humour as well as its practical, no-nonsense advice. Her latest book is The Ultimate Guide to Sex After 50: How to Maintain – or Regain! – a Spicy, Satisfying Sex Life. Price talks about sex – and seniors – with Australian sex therapist, educator and media commentator Cyndi Darnell.
