inscribed in fibre-tipped pen on mount l.l.: Rose Stone, 69. / The highlight of my life has been the Women's Movement. Knowing / the value of yourself affects everything you do. / I started enjoying sex when I got divorced. Good sex can start in / your post-menopausal years providing you give yourself the freedom / to express yourself physically. You can have a good sex life / 'til you die - and it doesn't always depend on a dick. / You never see old people making love. You never see old bodies / in magazines or films, so you think only young bodies can get / into a passion. In our heads the shape of the body determines / good sex. on the other hand, it's nice to have a firm body in / good shape.
