Atlanta, Georgia (PressExposure) February 14, 2009 -- Atlanta-based speaker/author Phil Parker will release Grandpa Does Grandma: The ABCs of Senior love in March 2009. The love lives of senior citizens have improved markedly in the past three decades, according to a recent study noted by The New York Times that shows many people continue to have active love lives well into old age. Some may say this is TMI (too much information), but for Phil and his peers, seniors are still âdoing itâ and his book illustrates why and how.
Grandpa Does Grandma: The ABCs of Senior love is just in time for Valentineâs Day lovers (old and young) to continue expressing their love for the remaining days this year! Parker uses 26 tastefully done illustrations that complement each letter for your visual enjoyment.
With wit, humor and even a softer side (from a femaleâs point of view), The ABCs of Senior love offers a love romp through the alphabet written not only for seniors but also for anyone who believes that older people arenât "doing it" anymore! Parker says, âThis book is about acknowledging and confirming that weâre never too old to enjoy our bodies and the pleasure we derive from exploring and fulfilling one another.â He continues, âPeopleâs attitudes have changed about love. The seniors of today are not the seniors of yesterday, trust me!â
Todayâs seniors report that they are having love far more often and have more positive feelings associated with love than their counterparts just 30 years ago. According to the study, from 1971 to 2000 the proportion of 70-year-olds reporting love intercourse increased, although interestingly, more married men say they are having love than married women. Among married men, 68 percent were having love, compared to 52 percent in 1971. Among married women, 56 percent were having love, compared to 38 percent in the 1970s.
Inspired in part by a visit to a local bookstore where he usually begins his day with friends, Parker was approached by a female employee in her early 20s with whom he normally exchanged morning pleasantries and was asked his age. When he replied he was going on 70, the young woman asked, âNow that you are almost 70 and donât have love anymore, what do you do for excitement?â
Parker continues, âShe was serious! I quickly satisfied her curiosity and went about my business. It did, however, get me thinking. Does the majority of our younger generation believe that seniors donât have or enjoy love?â
Thus began the inspiration for Grandpa Does Grandma. If you havenât reached senior status or are approaching the golden years, this book is good preparation and actually a relief! Itâs neither too early nor too late to start improving your love life and create a more loving relationship with your partner. In Parkerâs book youâll learn to rekindle the passion that brought you together in the first place.
Endorsed by Ava Cadell, Founder of Loveology University and Dr. Pat Love, Certified Love Educator, Grandpa Does Grandma: The ABCs of Senior love is fun, romantic, informative, a little edgy and if that isnât enough, itâs about reveling in what youâve earned in respect, perseverance and in taking pride in what youâve accomplished by living well.
