Hot Sex After Fifty…And Beyond

Yup, you got it – both halves of Adriana are over fifty, and you’d better believe we’re still after hot sex – for ourselves, and for our readers. Our quest has taken us to some fascinating places and I thought we’d share some of our finds with you in today’s blog post.

 

Of course you already know we’ve been dipping into the swing lifestyle. We’ve met and talked with a host of swingers and checked out some lifestyle clubs. If you think swinging is just for the young and lithe, think again – it seems no age is too old, if the interest is there and the body is willing. We’ve met swingers in their seventies and heard tales of folks into their eighties. For more information and tips on the swing lifestyle, check out our interview of Swinger and Life Coach Chantelle Austin, HERE. And of course if your interest leans more toward erotic swinging fantasies, we now have six books released in our Swinging Games series over at Extasy Books. Here’s a link to a short sample from our newest one, Who’s the Coach? Our hero/heroine couple in this series are empty nesters who are baby boomers, btw.

 

Two more themes pop out at us from the sexy over-fifty crowd. One is health and fitness. You don’t have to stay fit to keep having hot sex, but it sure makes a difference – in stamina, energy level, arousal, responsiveness, and mood, not to mention attractiveness. That’s a LOT of benefits, worth the effort. Some baby boomers have been following healthy eating and workout routines all their lives. For those who haven’t, it’s never too late to start, and there are lots of websites with tips for keeping older joints and muscle groups happy and healthy. Here’s a sampler:

The other theme is, for want of a better term, keeping up appearances. It’s a combination of self confidence, pride, presence, and attractiveness – looking one’s best, flaunting it and enjoying the heck out of it. Cougars are pretty famous for exuding these qualities, and here’s one I like, filled with tips for looking as young as you feel: Linda Franklin’s The Real Cougar Woman. She’s based in New York City. Her counterpart across the pond is Fab After Fifty.

 

And of course we’re writing new heroes and heroines who’ve crossed the magic fifty line. Coming in July to Whiskey Creek Torrid, Ripening Passion continues our series on a (fictional) sex institute, begun with Smoldering Passion. We’ll tease you with the blurb here and keep you posted on its progress as we approach release day!

Claire Johnson’s dedication to sex—the cornerstone of her career—led her to found the Center for Sexuality and Sex Practices. Now in her fifties, she knows the Center must keep pace with the rapidly growing Baby Boomer market, so she agrees to go back on camera for a series on sex and aging. But work with her nemesis?

 

Former English Professor Max Wilson has championed the cause of the Center ever since his deceased wife sought the Center’s help to rekindle the nearly extinguished sexual flames of their relationship. He loves working on camera and welcomes the challenge to perform with the svelte but feisty temptress.

 

Sparks fly immediately on and off camera. Can either Claire or Max transform those sparks into a fire of sexual desire for their viewers? And if they succeed, what will happen when the movie’s over?

 

My Life on Twitter

I joined Twitter slightly over a year ago, on the advice of @bookgal Penny Sansevieri after listening to her keynote speech at the 2009 EPICon. The point, as I understood it then, was to get my “brand” in front of more potential readers—especially, readers who might not have joined any of the nearly 100 fiction-specific yahoo groups I then belonged to, readers who didn’t know my hot LGBT erotic romance e-books were exactly what was missing in their lives. It’s been a fascinating year. 

I now have nearly 1500 followers and follow roughly the same number. Who are they? In the beginning, they were other erotic romance writers and the people who followed them. But I have a couple of specific niche markets—the LGBT community and the swing lifestyle. These make for some interesting bedfellows, so to speak. 

I follow and support LGBT causes and marriage equality. I’ve “met” Dr. Loren Olson (@LorenAOlsonMD), a Des Moines psychiatrist who came out as gay at mid life and, since he lives in Iowa, is now married to his partner. He’s interviewing men with similar stories and writing a book about it. Contact him if that’s you!  

One of my favorite encounters was taking the “how hetero are you” quiz from @StockholmPride and discovering that, based on my twitter friends and the language in my tweets, I am only 1% hetero. I was so excited I blogged about it—you can still take the quiz, at http://www.stockholmpride.org/howhetero/ . 

I discovered the power of hash marks to bring me instantly into the community of peeps involved in any specific event. This past month I’ve loved tweeting with other peeps following #NCAA March Madness, especially the night UNI beat first-seed Kansas to move into the Sweet Sixteen. But it works for any breaking news. Last October I couldn’t be in Washington D.C. for the National Equality March, but watching it on C-Span and being part of the conversation at #NEM was beyond powerful, and I blogged about that, too. 

Swing lifestyle (focus of a hot series I’m writing at Extasy Books) brings me some pretty sizzling connections—swing clubs, swingers, sex toy stores, and even porn stars, pretty much anyone with an interest in eroticism. In case you didn’t know, “Adriana Kraft” is the pen name under which my husband and I write erotic romance with mainly bisexual heroines. Swinging, it turns out, is one solution for a heroine who finally figured out at mid-life that she is bi.  

I’ll just shout out some of those fun connections: @chantelleaustin is an Australian Life Coach and Swinger who has written a guide for peeps new to the swing lifestyle. @PaulasPleasures runs a neat toy store and describes herself this way: “Pleasure Expert and Party Consultant, Teaching women how to Ignite the Passion in their love lives.” Sounds good to me! @DrMiaRose runs a website called Better Sex For Women packed with fab tips and info.  

And just for fun, I follow some of the rich and famous. It was neat to catch @ApoloOhno’s tweets while he (and we) watched Olympic figure skating. If @TheEllenShow has anything great going on, I hear about it first on Twitter. Former Tonight Show host @ConanOBrien has to stay off TV and has chosen Twitter for his medium, usually a single tweet per day, sometimes a joke. From watching #NEM, I picked up @BillieMyers and @ladygaga, so now I’m always on top of what they’re up to.  

Hope you’ll follow me @adrianakraft on Twitter – wonder what the next year will bring!
