How do we nurture ourselves as sexual beings when we’re grieving the death of a partner? 

This book provides a wide angle lens of possibilities for pleasure after recovery from the pain of loss, exploring the many questions and possible answers collected by Joan Price, a leading expert on sexuality in the senior years.

Sex After Grief addresses sex and grief together and treats sex as a normal, positive, life-affirming part of emerging from such a difficult time.

Joan Price, the top expert on senior sex, draws on her own experiences as a widow since 2008, when she lost the love of her life to cancer. She shares her raw grief journey, sexual reawakening (and the many stumbles along the way), and attempts to dip back into dating, along with excellent advice on handling each step.

Sex After Grief includes a variety of people’s personal stories from folks of all genders and orientations. Some jumped into sex quickly. Some took years. Some withdrew from sexual possibility. No one was wrong, and no choice is defective or shameful.
