Four years ago Jane Juska took out a personal ad in the New York Review of Books. It read:

"Before I turn 67, next March, I would like to have lots of sex with a man I like. If you want to talk first, Trollope works for me."
She received more than sixty replies and spent a year following them up before writing a book about the experiences. Not so much "sex and the single girl" as "sex and the senior citizen".
Jane Juska joins Jenni to talk about her adventures since placing the ad.
'A Round Heeled Woman: My Late Life Adventures in Sex and Romance' published by Chatto and Windus; ISBN: 0-701-17693-8 on 13 November.
'A Round Heeled Woman' is Radio 4's Book of the Week, next week.
