Sarah Broadhurst's view...

I cannot admire this woman more. Not only did she have the guts to advertise that, aged 67, she wanted lots of sex but she also had the guts to write about it, frankly, charmingly, addictively, thoughtfully and bravely. It’s a joy to read, sexy, okay, but so much more than that. It is inspirational, for all ages.

A Round-Heeled Woman by Jane Juska

Jane Juska placed her ad in The New York Times and the response was overwhelming. She took a sabbatical from teaching just to have time to respond and meet some of the men - the result is this engaging, funny and utterly frank account of her exploits. It's high time someone revealed the fact that older single people are as eager for sex and intimacy as their younger counterparts. Jane Juska's brave and honest memoir raises eyebrows and blood pressure in what is undoubtedly an inspiring account of one woman's daring adventures in sex and romance.
