THE BENEFITS OF RELATIONSHIPS AS WE AGE (Love & Aging)
Presented by John DeLamater, Conway-Bascom Professor of Sociology at UW-Madison
Intimate relationships provide social support, emotional and physical; but what happens when two becomes one? Where do you begin? DeLamater brings a broad, biopsychosocial perspective to the study of sexuality through the life course. His recent work has focused on changes in sexual functioning associated with age. He co-edited Sex for Life: From Virginity to Viagra, How Sexuality Changes Throughout Our Lives. He was awarded the Alfred E. Kinsey Award for Distinguished Contributions to the field of sex research by the Society for the Scientific Study of Sexuality. He is the co-author of a primary text in social psychology, and another on sexuality.
