Dangers for Elderly Not Talking Openly About Sex

Senior man, exercise with a hula hoop in parkFor the record, these ladies were clearly not included in this study. But once you get past the laughs afforded at the candid conversation about sex with these older ladies,  you can focus on the dangers presented by elderly folks who do not discuss sex openly with their partners and healthcare providers.

Here’s a fun statistic – nearly half of adults over the age of 65 are sexually active. Here’s a curious fact – the number people over the age of 65 talking about sex, both those having it and those who abstain, aren’t talking about it.

The only reason this is making headlines is because many healthy adults in that age group take supplements to retain their vitality. Doctors are concerned because many of them take prescriptions that could interact with such supplements.

Life is hard enough to live in a healthy fashion. Now those who have made it to their golden years because of their hush hush policies on sex, may actually be putting their health in jeopardy.

Modesty is a virtue. So what can we do about this modesty attached to sexual prowess in the age of the elderly? A book can help peel away any reservations, of course.  The biggest danger for the elderly sexually active is not talking about it. Share your limitations. Share your dreams. Get it.
