Sex after Dawn

Part of (B)old

In this panel discussion about sex and aging, we ask: does sex and desire transform with age?

What does a healthy sex life look like in our older years? And why don’t we talk more about it?

The panel discuss both our personal and societal attitudes to sex in our later years, from its representation in arts and culture to personal feeling of love, lust and desire.

The panel includes Lynne Segal, Anniversary Professor of Psychology and Gender Studies in the Department of Psychosocial Studies at Birkbeck College. The feminist academic and activist’s books include the landmark Straight Sex: Rethinking the Politics of Pleasure. Her most recent book is Radical Happiness: Moments of Collective Joy.
