Still Hot, Why Not? Still Hot, Why Not?

Columnist Diana Amsterdam muses on the state of affairs (or lack thereof) for women over 50 in our culture today. Amsterdam says women of a certain age are just as beautiful, amorous and confident as ever.

This month, Amsterdam explores the intriguing (yet mostly hypothetical) question: “Is casual sex easier as we get older?”

New Year, New You New Year, New You
