How We Love Now: Sex and the New Intimacy in Second Adulthood
The kinds of love we can experience in a lifetime are limited only by our imagination.
Thousands of women in their fifties, sixties, and seventies are living-and defining-a totally new love narrative. Whether they are already experiencing intimacy, joy-and great sex-or need the inspiration and support to go for it, readers will be energized by the stories of new ways of loving: relationships found (sometimes with younger men); rediscovered childhood sweethearts; long-standing ones enriched; and Internet adventures that feature choices and daring that would have been unimaginable not so long ago.
How We Love Now is the groundbreaking, funny, poignant, and sometimes shocking "next chapter" in Levine's ongoing conversation with women in Second Adulthood, the stage of life she defined and celebrated in two popular books: Inventing the Rest of Our Lives and Fifty Is the New Fifty. As she explores the changes and opportunities for women in midlife, Levine's personal voice, experience, and research infuse each chapter with fresh revelations and reassurance.
