You’re never too old! Women and Sexuality
WITH DR. ANDREA EISENBERG
Lately, we came across an online publication on Medium about women, ageing and sexuality. This seems to me a very interesting and important topic in the life of every women. Certainly it would be helpful if more men and women knew more about what is happening for women when they hit 50 or so.
Reading what Dr. Eisenberg wrote seemed to me different than so many things I had met before, it was neither a pure medical advice nor a sexualized story. It was just the right mixture of factual knowledge and knowing about women’s body and psyche and a compassionate offer to help. So we invited Dr. Eisenberg to our show and had an interesting 1 hour conversation which will be interesting for you, too, regardless if you are a woman or a man.

As women approach and transition through menopause, there are many surprising and possibly, unwelcome, changes. For some, the hot flushes, night sweats and interrupted sleep wreak havoc with their life day to day. For others, it may be more subtle changes that are bothersome – their skin feels dryer, their hair becomes thinner, their energy level is lower and it’s harder to take off the few extra pounds, their memory becomes a little foggy. And on a deeper level, there may be joy in not having a period anymore or hell trying to manage out of control emotions or sadness in ending their reproductive years.
For some women, these changes make them want to hide from any type of intimacy. They think they are no longer “sexy.” There are also the physical changes that make sex uncomfortable or downright painful, particularly vaginal dryness, and decreased sex drive. Additionally, there may be life changes, divorce, loss of a spouse, that add to insecurities regarding sexuality.
In our conversation with Dr. Andrea, we can explore your fears, your insecurities, your questions regarding sexuality as we age.
