Rebel Just Because

You know, I haven’t been real thrilled about turning 50, my “assigned number” for about the last 6 months.  I admit, I had some problems initially adjusting to the ‘new era’ and all that.  I nearly choked the first time I had to state my age at the doctor’s office… “F..f...f..if…uh..uh….fifty”.  They probably thought I’d had a stroke.    But, I’m slowly getting OK with the idea of being 50.  It’s better than the alternative, right?...more

Signing Off

Attaining my graduate degree was a bit of a process. I took the long road with a few side trips to stop and smell the roses, I suppose. But, I finished and have that piece of paper. That's all that matters, right? That you finish.My adviser and I had built a relationship during that long and winding time. I trusted him and had faith in him and an immense amount of respect. He called me on my b.s. and I tried to make him laugh. Then he would call me on my b.s. some more. He was very highly ranked in the graduate school, the dean of the program, actually....more

(VIDEO) Mid-Life Sexual Mojo: The Zestra/Viagra Double Standard

Lately, there seem to be a lot of discussion about mid-life sexual dysfunction –- specificall women’s sexual dysfunction, which I naturally find far more interesting than talk about ED and the ubiquitous print and broadcast advertising campaign behind Cialis and Viagra. Despite commercials flooding the airwaves about ED remedies like Cialis, whose voice-over script refers to "an erection lasting more than four hours," any mention of female sexual pleasure is clearly verboten. ...more

Is living in the age of Viagra a good thing or a bad thing for women? When it comes to STDs, it seems to be a bad thing.  We are hearing a lot about the new study finding an increase of STDs in older men who use medications for erectile dysfunction (like Viagra). What we haven't heard a lot about, is how this affects women (particularly older women). ...more
