As we age - not get old, but grow from our teens into our twenties and on into the golden years (or decrepitude, however you see it...I'm going for a blend) our sexuality changes. Quite a lot. It's a leap from virgin to non-virgin, from dating to monogamy, from monogamy back to dating, LOTS of datings, ometimes we find that we prefer a different sex or the same sex, less sex or more sex, experimental sex or no sex. And since our sexuality is such a huge part of our identity these changes can knock us for a loop.
They did me, but luckily I am a journalist so when I have a problem everyone gets answers.
In ruminating about my own alterations I got to talk to three fascinating people including Jaiya of World Sex Education, Dr. Thomas Ellis and the powerhouse personality HattieRetroAge in Sex Through The Years: The Fascinating Ways Our Desires Change Through A Lifetime, on Alternet. Enjoy!
