80-year-olds have some of the best sex of the over-50s, say scientists

While there is the perception among society as a whole that sex stops once you are 80, data gathered from more than 7,000 over 50s concluded that women in the their eighties have more “enjoyable” sex than those up to 30 years younger. According to a study published by the International Longevity Centre the “late-life boost in satisfaction may be down to older people “feeling happier in their own skin” and accepting that sex does not have to be perfect”.

Other results suggest that approximately 25 per cent of women in their fifties have trouble becoming aroused, while the proportion of those having problems in their sixties increased to around 37 per cent, rising to 40 per cent for those in their seventies. But once past the age of 80, only around 35 per cent of women reported having problems.

These results were also true for older men up to the level of two or three intimate contacts a week, beyond which their happiness tended to drop, a phenomenon the researchers could not explain.

After Fifty Living™ was founded by Jo-Anne Lema, a genuine Boomer and member of the 50+ generation. As she likes to say, “Our enormous generation is charting new territory – we’re healthier, better educated, and more financially fit than any other generation at this time. And, as we march through history, 110 million strong – unique, new issues are developing. It’s exciting to be a part of the development and growth of AfterFiftyLiving.com. This is a historic solution for a historic generation.”

Jo-Anne spent many years in the financial and operations side of higher education after having received a doctorate in education management and administration from Harvard, and an MBA from Southern New Hampshire University. Launching out on her own, though, has been the fulfillment of a life dream. Jo-Anne believes that “AfterFiftyLiving™ will delight its visitors, catalyze its partners, and will significantly benefit those who engage it.”

Residing in New England along with her husband of 35+ years, she never ceases to brag about her two children and 4 grandkids!
