“Sex is Not for Sissies” Workshop for Women of All Ages will Explore Sex, Relationships and Intimacy on September 14, 2013
Greensboro, N.C. August 6, 2013 – Sometimes getting older does not equate to getting wiser, especially in the romance department. “Sex Is Not for Sissies! A Guide to Love and Life for Women of All Ages” aims to change that with the second of several nationwide seminars to be held at Embassy Suites in Greensboro on September 14, 2013 from 6:00p to 8:30p
Women who attend the seminar will discuss issues affecting women’s health and their love life, learn a step-by-step guide on how to start a relationship the safe and smart way, enhance intimacy of a long-term relationship, and restore that loving feeling. The program is open to women from ages 18 to 80. Ticket price includes dinner, door prize drawings and take-home information.
With more than 30 years of experience as a registered nurse and a lifetime of working to improve the lives of others Valda Ford, MPH, MS, RN developed this workshop based on the most frequently asked questions she receives as a public health educator— especially from women over 40 — about sexual literacy and safer sexual practices. Ford will discuss issues affecting women’s health and their love life. Valda Ford, founder of Center for Human Diversity, a non-profit that includes support for vulnerable youth understands the challenges women face in embracing their sexuality and being safe.
At this unique event, Ford will help women rediscover the flame they once had, understand their body changes due to menopause, and learn how to get their significant other to be less selfish as lovers and more romantic.
According to the National Institute on Aging, Almost one-fourth of all people with HIV/AIDS in this country are age 50 and older. While the STD (sexually transmitted diseases) epidemic is known to be an issue for those ages 15-24, far too few people understand that those who are in the prime of their lives and now battling STDs and HIV as a major health concern.
Talking with women about their “first time” or their “last time,” Ford realized that many women were uneducated about the issues affecting their health in general and their sex lives in particular. With so few women actively seeking advice or help for the challenges to a healthy and fulfilling romantic life, Ford believes this “ladies night out” seminar will empower women of all ages to become informed and better equipped to rekindle the romance in their relationships and have satisfying and safer sex lives.
