  1. Love it! I happen to be the "lucky" publicist putting the word out to the media! I will definitely link them to this awesome blog!

  2. I'm the Grandma and loving every minute of it! Phil's book is amazing and will absolutely blow you away (no pun intended) with humor, insight, quotes and a real understanding of what it takes for a lasting relationship. It's a must read for anyone that makes sex a priority in their lives. Don't be fooled by the title. It's ageless.

  3. Terrific illustrations.
    Can't wait for the complete book.

  4. I know Grandpa and let me tell you; He does know How To DO Grandma!!
    The illustrations look great and my wife can't wait for me to get the book.

  5. I look forward to seeing this book and, if I love it, reviewing it on my ageless sexuality blog!

  6. Loved the sneek peek at the cover. Can't wait to get my hands on the book! Knowing grandpa and grandma makes it even more fun.

  7. Great idea for a book. I can't wait to read it.


  8. Phil, it seems your performance at writing this wonderful book is as good as your performance with grandma! Well done. Sensuous and sensitive. You don't have to be a senior to benefit from Phil's insight and humor.

  9. I can't wait to see the entire book! I loved what I have read so far. It is hysterical and very well done!

  10. I am so priveledged to have sat in Phil's living room as he read the introduction to his book. As someone who is under 40, I am very thankful to have this book NOW! I do believe this book will help relationships and even save marriages! This book is not just about Senior Sex, it's about LIFE!! Thanks Phil!

  11. Just because the economy's tanked doesn't mean sex has to!
    A whole new meaning to "drugs, sex, and rock and roll"!

  12. I've been BFF with Grandma since we were pre-teens -- believe me she and Grandpa know the ropes and practice what he preaches. Phil Parker is clever, insightful, caring and knows how to get a message acrros with humor and fun. Enjoy!

  13. My reaction to this book is shout-it-from-the-rooftop joy. Brave, goofy, heartfelt, and much needed. Good on ya, Grandpa!

    As an "out there" 70-year-old myself, who writes and edits literary erotica and has been a loving part of an explicit film (Bill & Desiree: Love Is Timeless, 2008), I guess I'm a bit of a campaigner.

    One hope: that your book gets wide exposure to help undo some of the antisex and antisenior prejudice in medicine and in senior facilities.

    One of my heroes - a gentle, shy man years ago who was an aide at a nursing home where my mother was recovering from surgery. His quiet mission was to help institutionalized seniors have romance, and even sex. He'd smuggle in flowers, cater dates, and had a janitor's closet he'd set up as a love nest.

    Grandpa Phil, you're the second addition to my heroes list. Congratulations on the book!

  14. You rock, mrnoble. Thanks for the great endorsement AND for getting the word out that frame of mind and not age is the key to healthy and enjoyable sexuality! Grandma

  15. Love this idea! Baby Boomers are a GIANT portion of the population and here's to debunking the "myth" that sex is a thing of the past once you hit a certain "older age." BLAH! No way! If grandma and grandpa want to take it up a notch (particularly if medications are altering with their natural libido) they should check out what my baby boomer clients call the "bam gel." Its Pure Satisfaction...its Unisex...and its putting the "gotta have it" back into grandma and grandpas sex life! Best of luck with the book, grandpa! I will recommend you to all my customers!!
