RSPA: Don't Need to Know About Horny Seniors

RSPA files this story under: 1. Things I didn't need to know, 2. Top "hump day" news story, and 3. News I can't use.

An unprecedented study of sex and seniors finds that many older people are surprisingly frisky _ willing to do, and talk about, intimate acts that would make their grandchildren blush. That may be too much information for some folks, but it comes from the most comprehensive sex survey ever done among 57- to 85-year-olds in the United States. Sex and interest in it do fall off when people are in their 70s, but more than a quarter of those up to age 85 reported having sex in the previous year. And the drop-off has a lot to do with health or lack of a partner, especially for women, the survey found/Marilynn Marchione, AP Medical Writer.

DFO: The only thing I find interesting about this study is that the lowest range begins at age 57, my current age. I guess this means I'm officially a Seasoned Citizen. Still, I have no interest in what other Seasoned Citizens are doing between the sheets. I agree with Pony.
