Sex and the Seasoned Woman: Pursuing the Passionate Life | [Gail Sheehy]

Sex and the Seasoned Woman: Pursuing the Passionate Life

A seasoned woman is spicy. She has been marinated in life experience. She can be alternately sweet, tart, bubbly, or mellow. She can be maternal and playful, bossy and submissive, strong and soft. The seasoned woman knows who she is. She could be any one of us, as long as she is committed to living fully and passionately in the second half of life.

Publisher's Summary

A seasoned woman is spicy. She has been marinated in life experience. She can be alternately sweet, tart, bubbly, or mellow. She can be maternal and playful, bossy and submissive, strong and soft. The seasoned woman knows who she is. She could be any one of us, as long as she is committed to living fully and passionately in the second half of life.

In her most groundbreaking work since Passages and The Silent Passage, best-selling author Gail Sheehy reveals a hidden cultural phenomenon: increased vitality in women's sex and love lives after 50. Sex and the Seasoned Woman is the story of an intimate revolution taking place under our very noses.

Boomer generation women in midlife are open to sex, love, dating, new dreams, exploring spirituality, and revitalizing their marriages as never before. This is a new universe of passionate, liberated women, married and single, who are unwilling to settle for the stereotypical roles of middle age and are now realizing they don't have to. As life spans grow longer and as societal constraints continue to loosen, older women, once free of the exhausting demands of young children, needy husbands, and demanding careers, find themselves ready to pursue the passionate life. They embrace their "second adulthood" as a period of reawakening.
