Our Better Half began in 2015 when a 50-something vanilla married lady starts asking questions about modern sex for classic bodies and wonders why everyone keeps laughing. Laura Collins Lyster-Mensh, writer and blogger, talked with experts on sex and sexuality and interviews people around the world on the topic of sex over 50. With segments like "Explain That To a Grandma" we cross generational lines and we get folks talking about healthy sex beyond the childbearing years and into the arthritic ones! We've now been joined by Dr. Jane Fleishman (she's older) and Dr. Ashley Mader (she's younger), who are carrying on Laura's tradition of finding the most interesting people across the world to interview and review.

Joan Price is amazing for us over 50 and over 60!
This podcast introduced us to a new sex life that has made our relationship of 40+ years more fun, exciting and alive again w sex toys.
Thank you !! It’s fun to have better than ever sex and has opened up a whole new relationship where we can’t wait to see each other and we look forward to our date nights once again.
Excellent / All
Hi, I really do think this podcast is excellent overall. I love the creaky noises for kegels; I think the interviews, especially with the older man who's part of SAGE, are really interesting; I think the spirit of the podcast is really good; and the pacing, with the talk to granny and more recent scientific sections are fun. i hope you get a big following and get to do this for ages. Many thanks!!!! Ellen
Ain't what it used to be...
Laura was an excellent representative for those of us over 50. The new hosts haven't mentioned either sex or mature folks in several podcasts and those looking for what Laura created will not find it here. It is now more of a political podcast. Sad...
