“Jaguars, Sugar Daddies and Lonely Hearts: Shattering Myths about Sex and Aging”
~ Dr. Melanie Davis
January 25, 2015

Mid- and older age can provide one’s most satisfying sexual experiences, yet harmful stereotypes mean that long-term care residents often lose their sexual rights, while lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender seniors often hide their sexuality for self-protection. Our first and second UU principles call our for advocacy on this social justice issue.
