Sex In Their 80s
Seniors Know How To Keep It Up

By: Bianca Bartz (Superstar) Aug 23, 07

Who says seniors can’t have fun in the sack? Most people can’t handle the thought of their grandparents getting frisky in their old age, but for a growing number of 70-80-something adults, sex is still an integral part of their relationships.

A survey of 3,005 Americans between 57 and 80 revealed a healthy appetite for getting physical. Those who weren’t getting as much action attributed it to lack of a partner or health-related reasons, but not a lack of will.

You better believe they still want it!

University of Chicago professor, Edward Laumann said, “It turns out that healthy people are sexually active if they have a partner, and that this is an important part of the quality of life.”

From the BBC:

“Sex with a partner in the last year was reported by:

  * 73% of those aged 57 to 64
  * 53% of those aged 64 to 75
  * 26% of those aged 75 to 85

“Of those who said they were sexually active, most said they were having sex at least two or three times a month. Half of the people surveyed up to age 75 said they had oral sex. About half of the men and a quarter of the women said they masturbated, regardless of whether they had a sexual partner.”
