When Sex Is Not An Option
Dr. Tanginika S. Cuascud will be talking to the audience about sexuality for older adults who may be suffering from chronic illness or health or physical constraints that prevent them from engaging in what others perceive as “normal sex”. This event will take place virtually on June 9th, 2021 from 12-1:10PM, ET. “Usually, people think of sex as intercourse; penis in a vagina. Therefore, if the conditions are not present for that kind of sexual activity to take place, many deem sex as less than, not possible or something that they cannot even conceive. However, one’s sexuality is more than one sexual act and a penis in a vagina is not the only way to have sex!”, said Dr. Tangie.
This event hosted by the Senior Source and in partnership with Seniors Blue Book, allows for attendees to ask questions and interact with the panelist. Dr. Tangie will share the panel with a Nurse Practitioner who specializes in geriatric care. These conversations shed much needed light on the sex lives of seniors as they enter an important stage that is widely ignored and misunderstood. Sex does not have an expiration date and sex does not have to stop due to aging or health status if the person wants to have a healthy sexuality.
