Sexual health


‘Sexual health’ is a fact-filled, informative and often light-hearted look at sex for the baby boomer generation.

Whether you’re male, female, transgender, bisexual, gay or lesbian - if you are over 50 this booklet is for you.

Sexual health has been written to give the baby boomer generation the information and support they need to maintain and achieve good sexual health and wellbeing.

It covers a range of different subjects including the various health issues relating to sexual wellbeing.

The booklet also looks in detail at the matters surrounding relationships – from people wanting, finding and starting new relationships; moving on from relationships; people in relationships and single people.

It is a very enjoyable and interesting read and while it won’t make you an expert it might answer some questions for you and your friends.

The booklet also contains a list of contact details of useful organisation and insightful anecdotes from over 50s about their experiences of sex.
