What I Wish I’d Known About Sex & Relationships When I Was Young with Joan Price

When you were younger, what did you learn about sex and relationships? And as an adult now, what do you wish someone would have taught or shared with you? Dr. Terri talks to Joan Price, author, speaker and advocate for ageless sexuality. Sex and relationships in your later years is not the same as younger sex, but it can be equally satisfying, and in some ways, it’s better. Joan will discuss what older adults wish they'd known about sex and relationships when they were younger. And how the definition of “what is sex?” has changed or evolved over time.
