Sex After 60: Not All the News is Good

He's only after one thing, Nana. From The Orlando Sentinel By Stan K. Sujka Behind the front-page Sentinel story "Senior Sex is Alive and Well" is some sobering news that senior citizens should be aware of and definitely not ignore. Like sexual activity, sexually transmitted diseases -- STDs -- are on the rise in the senior community. STDs include genital warts, herpes, gonorrhea, Chlamydia, HIV (the virus that causes AIDS) and others.
