Sex Blogger of the Month: Joan Price of ‘Naked at Our Age’

Published: SEPTEMBER 3, 2018 | Updated: FEBRUARY 2, 2022
Naked at Our Age is a sex blog for people over 50. How cool is that?

Fall is on the way which means changing leaves, cooler temperatures and ... pumpkin spice lattes? Whatever your flavor, this month's Sex Blogger of the Month presents a great read - and a topic we should all be giving a little more thought to: sex for seniors. Naked at Our Age is THE blog to read when it comes to sex for people over 50 - and beyond. It's fun, sexy and - if you're aspiring to a long and healthy sex life - inspiring. We asked Joan about her blog, blogging and for her top sex tip. Here's what she said.


Kinkly: Give us three words that describe your blog.

Joan Price: Senior Sex Talk

Kinkly: What inspired you to start the blog?

Joan Price: In 2005, I had just written my first senior sex book,"Better Than I Ever Expected: Straight Talk about Sex after 60." I wanted to create a community of seniors who were interested in learning more about sex and aging, sharing their experiences, and discussing sex openly. I’m proud to say that my blog is still going strong all these years later!


Kinkly: What’s behind the name?

Joan Price: It has two names, actually. It was first named “Better Than I Ever Expected” to match my first senior sex book. Then, when I wrote "Naked at Our Age, Talking Out Loud about Senior Sex," I wanted to rename it “Naked at Our Age,” but it was complicated to change it. So now you can find it under either name.

Kinkly: Who’s your target reader?

Joan Price: People over 50, and those who aspire to be.

Kinkly: What’s unique about your blog?

Joan Price: It’s the only longtime sex-themed blog specifically aimed at readers over 50 that also includes more than 100 sex toy reviews from a senior perspective.

Kinkly: What is the topic you find yourself covering most often and why?

Joan Price: I cover senior sex news and views, and I specialize in sex toy reviews from a senior perspective. As we age, many of us need more stimulation than our arthritic wrists can provide, and a well-chosen, well-placed vibrator can mean the difference between orgasm and no orgasm. It’s my mission to help people – especially those who aren’t regular vibrator users – understand the benefits of various sex toys and make the right choices for their needs. By the way, I see them as sex tools more than toys.

Kinkly: What was your most popular post ever? Why do you think it drew so many readers?

Joan Price: My three lingerie shoots at age 65, 68, and 72 are my most popular. I don’t know how much of their popularity is from prurient interest and how much is from readers understanding how empowering it is to celebrate our aging bodies in this way. Hmm, should I do another lingerie shoot when I turn 75 in a couple of months?

Kinkly: What’s the best thing about writing a sex blog?


Joan Price: I write professionally, and most of my writing needs to please an editor and fit the format requirements of a book or website. My blog gives me absolute freedom to write about whatever I want to share with my readers, in any way I please (as long as I stick to the topic), and to publish it instantly. I also love having the connection with my ever-growing community of sex-positive seniors.

Kinkly: What’s the worst thing about it?

Joan Price: There’s no “worst thing.” I share this information joyfully. I write when I have something new to say that I think my readers will find valuable.

Kinkly: OK, now for the good stuff: Give us your best tip for great sex.


Joan Price: Communicate. Learn to talk about sex. Express what you’d enjoy, what you’d like to try, what doesn’t work for you. Ask your partner questions: what would you like me to do, how can I give you pleasure, what’s off limits? Learning to speak honestly and lovingly about your sexual needs and desires is the single best way to improve your sex life with a partner. Seriously.
