Let's be honest here for a minute, when does one ever see an elderly couple be sexually active. Now, I am not saying that I want to see this, but because it is not portrayed as a commonality everyone has the false idea that as one ages sexual activities cease. The truth is that many people are still sexually active well into their seventies and eighties. There is a larger chance they are still active if they are healthy and are sharing their life with a significant other. There are some statistics to put it in a better view: three-fourths of married men and 56 percent of married women are sexually active over age 60 and 30 percent of women 80 to 102 years old. When I first read these numbers my mind was blown! I ended up sharing this information to everyone I knew. The unfortunate part for the ladies is that at age 80 women are only able to pick from 39 men to every 100 women...those are some slim pickin's. This psychology information about frequency of sexual activities and aging is something that will stick with me for years and is something I will remember when I am older. You never know what percent you may be in. My best advice is to find someone you can grow old and gray with.
