Safe Sex for Seniors
The statistics are startling the rate of HIV infection is up 94% in heterosexual men over the age of 50, and up 107% in heterosexual women in same age bracket since 1991. We have a semi-secret epidemic on our hands, a vibrant nation of seniors contracting STDs and HIV at an alarming rate. Contrary to popular belief, these ageless adults are having sex, and many of them lack the knowledge of preventative safe-sex measures to guard against infectious and life-threatening disease. Also, when seniors talk to their doctors about their symptoms, STDs are often ruled out by misdiagnosis from medical health professionals who often do not take into consideration that their older patients are still sexually active.
Dr. Dorree Lynn has been an advocate for seniors for more than 20-years, championing the need for sex education and safe sex public service initiatives for the 50+ audience. She says the problem lies in a lack of education and tendency for the under 50 crowd to stereotype those 50+. “Unlike their children and grandchildren who received sex-ed. In school, many seniors are clueless,” notes Dr. Lynn. “There are a scarcity of STD awareness campaigns designed for them, little or no condom advertising geared to their age demographics, and most doctors and family members don’t feel comfortable speaking about sexuality with these older adults.” A recent national study conducted by the University of Indiana supports Dr. Dorree’s opinions, finding that only one in five men and one in four women over the age of 50 use condoms.
“We need to re-educate older adults,” says Lynn, “because as their relationships end or their partners die, if they begin dating and have multiple partners, there may be no danger of pregnancy, but the STD risk is certainly present.” While having “the talk” with a senior patient or family member may seem awkward or embarrassing, the need is critical to ensure the health and wellbeing of this growing demographic. Studies show that a healthy sex life helps keep people happier and living longer. Even as we mature, our zest and passion for life, intimacy, and sex does not have to fade. “Our core sexuality never goes away,” says Dr. Lynn, “it is part of our deepest selves and a vital path to our primal connection with others.”
Cash and Couch
Should there be an interrelationship between personality and finances? If you were handed one million dollars, what would you do? Would you spend it right away? Save for your family? Donate to charity? How you handle your money says tons about how you handle your life. And how you handle your life tells you how you handle your finances.
Practicing Safe StressStress kills. We all know that. However, too few understand that what makes us stressed develops into an underlying physiological overload that hurts our health. Safe Stress is learning to live a balanced life--think of it as a 3-legged stool: mind, body, and spirit working together. Dr. Dorree explores the interaction of these three aspects and gives tips and tools about how to achieve these goals.
Resiliency or Positive Aging
Resiliency is the positive capacity of people to cope with stress and catastrophe. Instead of a medical disease model, it’s a dis-ease model and is geared toward an individual’s continued growth and positive development. Dr. Dorree gives practical advice about how people can age positively and how to sustain and grow from life’s challenges. Tools include: exercise, diet, interest in others, and involvement in relationships, spiritual or otherwise. Dr. Dorree tells families, friends, caregivers, health professionals, and all involved with those in their Bonus Years what they can do to help men and women over 50 mature positively.
