Kink/BDSM for Aging Adults: A Creative Expansion of the "Good-Enough Sex" Model
Description: This workshop will provide sexuality professionals with a model for treating aging adults' sexual difficulties, lack of desire and sexual boredom with the use of kink/BDSM. Using two case studies of an older heterosexual couple and a lesbian couple, the presenter will describe the sexual loss and boredom experienced by aging adults whose sexual functioning had declined significantly and how the "Good-Enough sex" model was used to provide a foundation for the subsequent exploration of kink/BDSM.
Objective(s): At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to: demonstrate knowledge in treating the sexual difficulties, lack of desire and sexual boredom of aging adults with the use of kink/BDSM; evaluate the benefits and risks of using kink/BDSM with aging adults.
