Breaking news: study shows 100 year old men still like sex

Burt Reynolds

Listen, I'm sorry to be the one to have to tell you this, but let's get something straight: just because most of us don't like to think about old people having sex doesn't mean that they don't do it. Thanks to yet another miracle of science, we now have categorical proof that even after an entire century of getting some, one in five men over 100 "still consider sex important." Predictably, one of the researchers on the Australian medical study behind this creepy new fun fact added the caveat that there are "common medical problems [that are] barriers to older people remaining sexually active," and more than forty percent of sexually active elderly men wished they could have more sex than their aging bodies would allow. Even so, men in their twilight years who are still capable of doing it have "lots of partners to choose from" since women so routinely outlive men, and people in this age group routinely report higher levels of sexual satisfaction than in their younger years.

So, there's that. Let us never speak of this study again.

I for one can't wait for all the young strange I'll be getting in the home.

Why should the idea bother anybody? I think it's good news as most of us are going to get old (or die, those seem to be the only two choices on the menu) and I don't plan to give up on sex any time soon.

Well Virginia, as I'm over 60 and living with a woman also over 60 and we have REALLY GOOD SEX , I just don't see what is so "creepy" to you. My guess is that you're all for gay rights, and believe that women should be empowered etc etc, so grow up already. That all kinds of people have wonderful, loving, fulfilling love lives that you wouldn't necessarily want to sleep with - doesn't make them creepy.
You're being creepy, but some day - if you're lucky - you'll get old (40?) and - if you're lucky - still have a partner who makes you feel lovely, and - if you're lucky - makes sweet love to you.
Get a head start and start being lucky now.
Do you feel lucky? Well do you, punk?

Well, I'm not 60 yet (almost) but when I hit it, or pass it, I have absolutely no problem resigning myself to the fact that most people don't want to imagine me having sex. So to Gazbo I would say... so what? It's not "creepy" that no one wants to imagine me doing it, just get over it and go have your REALLY GOOD SEX... without us all imagining it.

I wouldn't want to imagine most people I know having sex, regardless of their age. Also, unless they were "getting some" in their playpens, the centenarians have only been "getting some" for at most 80-something years.

I don't know how any of you get laid in the first place. Personally, I like to imagine EVERYbody having sex.
Just lucky I guess.

I like to imagine George H. W. Bush and Barbara Bush bumping uglies personally. That's hot.

You don't stop lovin' because you get old. You get old because you stop lovin'.

I'm with Gazbo on this one, and I'm 22. The idea of anyone having sex really doesn't bother me and I am insatiably curious about other people's sex lives, and I think a lot of people who say they "don't want to know" are lying. Come on, really? You don't want to know? I hope to be having sex til I'm on my death bed and consider it very encouraging to hear about people who are.

Good for you LM, sounds healthy to me. I think some people missed my point; if you think somebody is "creepy" for having loving sex, you will sooner or later or sooner find your own self "creepy", and that is just not necessary. Keep your heart open LM and you'll be alright.

I get your point, Gazbo, and this blog has a looooong history of saying shit like this. Only young attractive people (and Lady Gaga) should be having sex ever, according to.

@thinkywritey-doodle guy: I'm with you on that one, and as a young, attractive female, err, male, err hermaphrodite, I must say I concur.

Awesome news I say - christ, i'd like to find a 30 something male who actually wants to have sex regularly, they seem to be thin on the ground!!! If you've still got the desire, then get to it!! Make love, not war... etc.
