Sex doesn't stop in your 60sPosted on: February 27, 2013 10:36:53
However, in reality, an individual's wants and needs within a relationship often don't change as they get older, and that includes the more intimate side of things.
A recent study by Age UK found that over a quarter of over-65s said their sexual lifestyle hasn't changed as they get older, proving that romance and intimacy is a big factor in most partnerships - regardless of age.
Speaking to Brits, the charity found that around one in ten pensioners are keen to embark on a new sexual relationship and find love.
Despite this, many of the older generation claim they find it difficult to talk to partners or people in the health profession about sex, often citing embarrassment or uncertainty when it comes to initiating the conversation as the root of the problem.
Lucy Harmer, head of information and advice at Age UK, said: "Our survey shows that having a healthy sex life is important to us regardless of our age.
"The changes that many people face as we age, such as the menopause or finding our joints become less supple, don't necessarily mean our sex life has to stop."
However, the report also highlighted the need for greater awareness when it comes to sexual health, emphasising that infections can impact individuals who are sexually active whatever age they may be.
Ms Harmer claimed that with the right information and advice, people in later life will be able to keep active and healthy for as long as they wish.
As many as two-thirds of over-65s surveyed in the study said they are currently enjoying a fulfilling sex life, while 12 per cent of those interviewed admitted they would like to be more experimental with their new partner.
So, it doesn't matter how old you are, or what kind of relationship you are seeking, you could be just one click away from finding Mr or Mrs Right when you start online dating.
