Let’s talk about sex after 40! What are the ‘rules’ about sex when you’re getting back into dating in your 40s and 50s? I sat down with Sarah Hiner, President of Bottom Line, Inc., to discuss the Last First Date  dating principles. I don’t believe in hard and fast rules. I do believe it is absolutely fine not to have sex right away, but do communicate your attraction so your prospective partner doesn’t lose interest or get the wrong idea. As with other aspects of relationships, it’s important that people communicate what they want and need. And most important, daters should get tested for STDs and use protection against STDs­—this is a very real risk to this age group.

In a recent episode of Last First Date Radio, my guest, Matt Marr talked about how to discuss sex with your partner. Here’s an excerpt:

If you’re not comfortable with your sexuality, ask yourself, “Is that a story I created on my own, or was it from my parents, religious institution, TV, movies, etc?”

[It’s important to discover your limiting beliefs and create a new story about healthy sexuality.]
