A discussion that challenges the myth that, thanks to our society's emphasis on youth and beauty, older people are uninterested in and incapable of enjoying sex, stressing the importance of touch and affection, the differences and lack of them in the sexuality of elders. The participants are Dr. Earl Marsh, gynecologist and psychiatrist and medical director of the Institute for the Advanced Study of Human Sexuality in San Francisco, and Mickey Apter, Ph.D candidate at the Institute. The program is hosted by KPFA's Peggy Stein.
