Seventy percent of Baby Boomers still listen to rock'n' roll. They still take drugs--only now they're hormones, Prozac and Viagra. Now, the question is: Are they still having sex? And if so--how good is it?

The result is a holistic approach to great sex for any generation, before or during mid-life--and beyond. Don't miss:

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The subtitle hints at more than this book delivers. In fact, despite the subject (the sex life of baby boomers), it's slow reading. Bakos (What Men Really Want), a popular sex writer, bases her study on dozens of interviews and hundreds of responses to her 25-item questionnaire. Considering that there are 77 million boomers, her results come from a very small slice of the population: she admits that 112 responses came from St. Louis county alone and that the respondents are disproportionately white, middle-class professionals, 60 percent women and largely heterosexual. Each chapter recounts personal stories of sexual encounters; the endless small print is broken up with boxes offering wordy survey results, Boomer Sex Tips, "sound bites" of overheard conversation, and quotes from Sixties songs. Still Sexy is neither a textbook on the sexual practices of the baby boomer nor a stimulating read; although the title may attract public library patrons, they will put it down as quickly as they pick it up.--Susan E.
