Program Description

Event Details

Sex is complicated enough under normal circumstances, but when we’re in grief, it’s especially mysterious and confusing. How do we nurture ourselves as sexual beings when we’re grieving the death of a partner? Why does taking care of ourselves sexually even matter at a time when we’d rather hide under the covers and wail? What do we do with those sexual feelings that arise despite our misery? How do we know when it’s time to open ourselves to a new sexual relationship, whether it’s a friend with benefits or a new love connection? And how do we do it? Join us as sex educator Joan Price helps us answer those questions. 

Joan Price, author of “Sex after Grief: Navigating Your Sexuality after Losing Your Beloved,” shares anecdotes and advice from her own grief journey and from other grievers. This presentation is appropriate for all ages, genders, sexual identities, and orientations.
