The Role of Intimacy for Healthy Aging
Talk by Michael Lee Smith, a featured speaker at the 2018 Healthy Aging Summit presented by the Wisconsin Institute for Healthy Aging.
Michael holds the view that sexually active “olders” are healthier and happier. But adds, that doesn’t necessarily mean sex, that intimacy is the real key. Lee Smith shares stories of his early research days at the Kinsey Institute, his grandmother's “new man,” and ways to reframe and redefine a healthy sexuality as we age.
