    Do people really have sex at age 75 ? :eek:

    Or is this something you have to live thru to know the answer?

    My husband says "yes as long as the girl is 25!" :1pig:

    I can only tell you that my father was born in 1907, the year his father turned 67 years old. :baby04:

    I work as a nurse at an assisted living. The average age of our residents is 88-90.
    Yes.........they do. Not pretty to walk in on mind you........I had a retired minister tell me that he and his wife didn't want the staff to do night checks on their room because as he put it "it takes me long enough to get things started....I don't need interruptions!

    I am surprised....actually.

    My mom is not even near 70 and she's more than ready to call it "good" but her husband is younger by 6 years...

    Well at 81 my grandfather had prostrate surgery and had he ever got ahold of the doctor he would have casterated him. Granpa said the doc had took away his manhood . Which would give the impression that even in his 80s he still had a use for it :rolleyes:
    Being the helpful type my brother is, he told granpa to find a woman who could stand on her head and just drop it in

    I certainly hope so! My grandfather told me he was out of the game in his early 60's. But he died at 66 just about the time Viagra was making the news. Poor man!

    Do you expect people to suddenly stop on their Xth birthday, or something?? Love, and the physical urges that go with it, don't just come to a grinding halt just because the number of candles on your birthday cake is more than last year!

    Elderly people are normal people just like you and me, you know.

    Depends on the individuals, of course, but there's no reason they shouldn't continue having a sex life right to the end of their lives, if they can. I can't imagine what makes people say 'ick' at the thought (they'll all be old one day, in the normal course of things! Will it be 'ick', then, I wonder?). I've known one couple who got married when he was 90 and she was 87, and they were definitely 'at it'. And good luck to them, I say.

    You must be kidding or very young and inexperienced. :)
    Some people don't ever have sex :rolleyes: That includes married people, "young people" and very beautiful, sexy people.
    Doesn't matter whether you are 25 or 75.
