Publisher's Summary

Better Than I Ever Expected is a warm, witty, and honest book that contends with the challenges and celebrates the delights of older-life sexuality. It asserts that women over sixty are at the top of their game when it comes to enjoying sex. Joan Price's woman-to-woman straight talk transcends the self-help style of other books in this field. Yes, there are challenges to sex after menopause and beyond, says Price, but there are also creative solutions. She is on a mission to let women her age and older know that they can, in fact, have the best sex of their lives. Price gets personal and stays positive, combining her own story with candid comments, tips, and sassy tales from sexually seasoned women. She acknowledges the gritty issues that older women confront in their sexual lives, noting that it's not easy, but it certainly isn't over. At age 61, Price is newly engaged to the man she's been looking for her whole life. Her discovery of how great "well-seasoned" sex can be was the inspiration for this book. Sidebars present candid and friendly sex tips; fitness, exercise, and lifestyle information; and women's erotic vignettes—both real-life experiences and fantasies."

    Where does Better Than I Ever Expected rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's the first book I wrote about senior sex and it celebrates my later-life love affair, so of course I love it!

    What other book might you compare Better Than I Ever Expected to and why?

    This book was the prelude to Naked at Our Age, which addresses the problems and challenges faced by our age group. This book celebrates the joys.

    Which scene was your favorite?

    The nail-filing scene gets me every time I read it to audiences at my talks. I see the women smile and squirm, and so do I!

    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Celebrating senior sex!

    Any additional comments?

    Please check out Naked at Our age, too. The two books are a pair.

    "Not Good"
    What disappointed you about Better Than I Ever Expected?

    It did not sound authentic. The letters read out probably were. But she went on & on about her own lover, boyfriends ...

    What was most disappointing about Joan Price’s story?

    I was after real information from older people - it all seemed very shallow

    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Suzanne Toren?

    Narrator was fine.

    What character would you cut from Better Than I Ever Expected?

    Need to communicate good information - not chitter chatter.

    Any additional comments?

    "Not what I expected"

    Disappointed, not the content that the title had lead me to think. Mostly just a lady trying to convince other ladies that intimacy as a senior is ok. It was not what I was looking for.
