Elderly sex?! Yes? No? Possible?
Most of my friends don’t feel comfortable talking about their sex life. The funny thing is the idea of their parents having sex makes them feel uncomfortable and most of us don’t want to even consider the idea.
But amazingly elderly sex is very much present and some seniors have a way more exciting sexual life than my friends.
I spent an hour at my friends sex shop and I was amazed. First a couple walked in and they asked abut erection rings. We started talking and my friend showed them something saying that with that product her husband would be as he was in his 30es. And the wife replied- no, please no, he’s much better now 🙂 And then she said her 66th birthday is next week so she gets to choose something that her hubby will buy for her. So she did. A high quality vibrator.
Go granny 🙂
The next client was a men. Close to 70. He came asking for a specific vibration ring.
I was amazed. He came, choose from what was available, added a stimulating lubricant and left.
Following him there was a man that came to get some erection pills. And he bought a lot. At that time it crossed my mind that grandpa has more sex than I do at the moment 🙂
It was so enlightening to see these people so openly talking about their desires and fantasies when most of my pears have problems talking about it.
It has recently come to the attention of the media that older adults are still having sex. Of course, this is no surprise to the older adults themselves. But for the rest of us, some of the statistics uncovered in recent studies have proved particularly enlightening.
For example, according to the Longitudinal Study of Ageing, 31 percent of British men from the ages of 80 to 90 still masturbate and have sex. And just under 60 percent of men between the ages of 70 and 80 are still sexually active.
Meanwhile, only 14 percent of women between the ages of 80 and 90, and 34 percent of women between 70 and 80, regularly engage in sex or masturbation.
A study conducted by researchers at Indiana University’s Center for Sexual Health Promotion showed similar results. 46 percent of men and 33 percent of women over 70 report that they masturbate, and 43 percent of men and 22 percent of women in the same age bracket say they engage in sexual intercourse.
And a study by the National Commission on Aging (NCOA) shows that women, in particular, find sex over 70 as or more physically satisfying than they did in their 40s. (Source)
