The baby boomers are finally at the door step of becoming old timers and that brings with it lots of concerns, not the least of which is, “Am I over the hill sexually?” We think back on how we viewed our parents ... in fact our grand parents ... when we were youngsters, teens, young couples and thought, “Could those old people still be doing it?” What’s worse, we probably thought, “They couldn’t be … what a gross thought!”
You bet they were, and in most cases they still are ... doing it more than you’d ever have guessed. The fact is that the human animal is normally sexually active to the day it dies. Note I said normally. That is a very significant word. It means that if you are not sexually active it is not the norm. Up until a few years ago most of us thought it normal for sex to become less and less important after the age of 50 or 60. That’s because no one asked the people who were over the ages of 50 or 60. But now that more people are living to be 70, 80, 90, and 100, we are starting to notice and ask. Research with the elderly shows quite clearly that sex is as important as ever; and quite frequently and happily more fun than ever. We should all be delighted to find that out because it gives us lots to look forward to.
It also means that if you are not keeping up with the good old Jones’s you should be checking it out. Remember, the norm is that you should be getting it and enjoying it for a long time to come, and if you aren’t you should be questioning why not. In the great majority of cases what ever is stopping you can be remedied. Sex in the Golden Years is great and you should be staying sexually active for the rest of your life. Since the Denver Boulder areas are among the healthiest in the country you should be going strong for a long time to come.
Like my grandmother used to say; “If the good Lord didn’t want us to do it, He wouldn’t have made it feel so good!”
