In an exclusive interview with Life Redefined, Peter and Suzanne from the Sex Advice For Seniors podcast share their insights on how to live your best lives and manifest your fantasies for real. So buckle up for some sage advice and a whole lot of fun!
Ah, love – it's the magical feeling that we all crave at any age. But as we grow older, our love lives may need a little spicing up. Enter Peter and Suzanne, the dynamic duo behind the Sex Advice for Seniors podcast. They've been dishing out pearls of wisdom on how to reignite the flame and explore new horizons in love and sex in mid-life and beyond.
Suzanne isn't just a woman on a mission to redefine sex, she's also a serial entrepreneur, running the Advantages of Age website, which, like 55/Redefined, aims to champion ageing and living a fulfilling, rewarding life. Meanwhile, her partner Peter, is a former Guardian columnist and sex writer. Together, they are vocal in expressing that when it comes to a healthy sex life, age really is just a number.
Communication is key, when it comes to sex
"People in long-term relationships often don't talk about sex properly, and that can lead to problems," says Peter. He advises couples to communicate their desires and what they want from life and relationships in general. Suzanne agrees and adds that it takes effort from both partners to reignite that spark.
For those back on the dating scene, Suzanne suggests going in with an attitude of fun and not investing too much hope. "People go badly wrong because they go back into the dating scene with all that hope, with all of that want that they perhaps had in their twenties," she explains. Peter agrees, adding that not having to do it for procreation is a relief and advises people to live their best lives, for themselves and not chase "the one."
Don't be Afraid of Sharing Your Fantasies
But what about exploring fantasies and alternative lifestyles? Suzanne and Peter say that we now have the internet at our fingertips, making it easier than ever to discover and manifest our desires. "For people who perhaps have had fantasies or wanted to do things that were outside of the norm, but are legal, there are now opportunities to do that through all of these websites that exist," says Suzanne.
