Thank you for having me on the @ELRAgeSpeaks Radio Show @MervChangeAGEnt. You are a wonderful host.
If anyone is interested in listening to my dulcet tone ๐Ÿ˜‚ you have come to the right place.
Other reasons to give it a listen:
1. Itโ€™s sexual health week, so itโ€™s my annual reminder that many older adults are sexually active, enjoy a variety of sexual acts, take sexual risks, but can face structural and personal barriers to realising their sexual agency and expression #SHW20 #SHW2020
2. You get to hear my Barnsley accent ๐Ÿ˜ฑ
3. And hear me waffle my way through some of the points (although overcoming my rather robotic start ๐Ÿ˜‰)
4. Youโ€™ll hear songs by fantastic artists.
First up, Victoria Woodโ€™s Ballad of Freda and Barry @VictoriaQOTD. A sexy song indeed
5. My second music choice is Fluorescent Adolescent by the @ArcticMonkeys, a #Sheffield band so another Yorkshire accent to grace your earlobes
6. And my final song, a song about human rights, is Get Up Stand Up by Bob Marley and the Wailers @bobmarleymuseum. To end with a call to action for the sexual rights of older adults, and give a firm nod to #BlackLivesMatter #HumanRights
7. Oh yeah, and you get to hear my views on the sexual rights of older adults and why we need to act now #SexRightsAge #seniors #sex #OlderPeople #GeroTwitterโ€ฆ

On #SexualRightsDay I'm reminded about why we need to recognise the diversity of sexual activity, sexual agency, and sexual expression in people aged 50 years and older #SexRightsAge. Here are a few of the reasons why:
First, and this is the overarching point, is that the over 50s are not an homogeneous group. There are multiple intersecting factors that influence our lives, including our sexual lives. These include gender, race/ethnic group, socio-economic status, sexual orientation.
Second, and similar to the above, our unique personal history can influence our sexual lives in the present. So, our experiences of sexual trauma, stigma, discrimination, poverty, disability, and health conditions both physical and mental.

It's Sunday ('sexual rights day') and I'm thinking about the sexual and reproductive health of older women as this is an area that gets very little attention. A call to remember that #SRHR should be approached from a lifecourse perspective #seniors #sex #OlderAdults #SexRightsAge
For women post-menopause, there can be consequences from their earlier reproductive health that affect their current health status, in particular gynaecologic and obstetric issues #SRHR #SexRightsAge
And as inequalities tend to become more profound as we get older (e.g. where ageism prevents awareness, understanding, and progress) older women do not get the #SRHR care they require #SexRightsAge
