Sexual rights book

Our book on the sexual rights of older people is the first academic text to focus specifically on this subject. It covers a wide range of topics including sexual orientation, gender identity, sexual assault, online dating, and sexually transmitted infections (see the Table of Contents below).

Co-edited with Dr Catherine Barrett, Director of Celebrate Ageing, the book has contributions from leading experts in the field and a Foreword from Professor Kevan Wylie, Consultant in Sexual Medicine and past President of the European Federation of Sexology.
