Dr Rosie King talks about:

Dr King's presentations cover a range of human-interest issues including:

  • Men and women: bridging the gap - This presentation takes a lighthearted look at differences between men and women in and out of the bedroom. Lots of laughs plus some helpful hints to make your relationship sizzle.
  • Good Loving, Great Sex - What are the key factors in creating sexual satisfaction and relationship happiness? This presentation offers practical, down to earth strategies with a touch of humour thrown in for men and women wanting to create more love, passion and chemistry in their lives.
  • The Baby Boomer's Guide to Sex - This very popular presentation is for those who want to make the most of life regardless of age. We live in a society that worships at the altar of youth - yet we are increasingly an ageing population. Too many of us set limits on our dreams because we discriminate against ourselves on the basis of age. This presentation examines ageist attitudes to life, sex and love and sets the record straight. We are never too old to live and love to the full.
