The Humor of Aging

In light of shifting the conversation from "anti-aging" to "pro-aging" and having a little fun with this aging thing, I'm including a few positive stats around aging and a few cartoons to include the humor of aging.  Let's lighten up a bit about aging - for so many it is so serious! Today a [...]

Sexual Peak vs. Hormonal Peak – A Big Difference

As you can see by my picture, I'm feeling impish talking about sex and aging.  You okay with this conversation?
