Senior Sex - Get It, Got It, Good


"Frequency of sex doesn't change a lot across age groups. Old people are just young people later in life." Stacy Tessler Lindau, M.D., M.A.P.P, A Study of Sexuality and Health among Older Adults in the United States

Well it's about time.

To all you whippersnappers who thought sex--intercourse and oral--belonged only to those under 40, I just want to say PPPPBBBBTTTT!

Finally, researchers have done the math and put the results in black and white. Even into the "Twilight Years" --given good health, good drugs and good partners-- most people still want good sex.

Duh. Any honest Baby Boomer could have told you sex is still a major part of the equation. We're the Make Love, Not War generation.

Many 20-30-and young-40-somethings may be living the Sex, Drugs and Rock 'N Roll life, but they didn't patent it. WE STARTED IT. And we plan on continuing well into those seriously senior years.

For anybody shuddering with a creepy BLECH feeling, I'm not talking about your parents. Well, actually I might be, but you can come to terms with it another way...
Can you imagine these celebs having sex -- Mick Jagger, Kevin Costner, Susan Sarandon, Richard Gere, Denzel Washington, Sharon Stone?

Of course you can.

So Gere, Washington and Stone are well over 50. Jagger, Costner and Sarandon are over 60. And, by the way, Bruce Springsteen is about to be 58.

Yeah, really.

Can you imagine any of them--or thousands of their counterparts--giving up sex any time soon? No way.

Because. Sex. Is. Part. Of. Life.

Granted, there are people who don't like sex. Some are older people. Some aren't. They never learned to enjoy themselves and others. They weren't taught, or allowed, to learn about sex, let alone good sex.

As a certified Baby Boomer, I'm taking credit for my generation's bringing sex out of the closet -- and away from the closed minds who put it there.

We didn't invent sex. We just took the stigma of sin off it. We might have gone a little overboard, but we made it possible for people of all ages to see sex as FUN, fulfilling, even necessary.

So we have no reason to stop any time soon. What Dr. Lindau, the study's lead author said bears repeating. About all parts of life, not only sex. "Old people are just young people later in life."

That attitude is the real key to a long, happy (sex) life.

Contrary to popular belief a whopping majority of the people who are past their hey days maintain their sexual urges, wants, and fantasies. Unfortunately, most of them are let down by their anatomy. Men and women as old as 70 experience the need of sex but almost all of them experience sexual dysfunction, erectile dysfunction being the commonest in the men. For the latter today there are medicines in the likes of cailis.Though their costs make it impossible for many to buy the drug.
