Sex After 60: How To Stay Sexy As You Age
Getting older doesn't mean giving up on sex.

Sex after 60 is not a myth, and the same can be said for sex after 70. A healthy sex life can and does exist for many people well into—believe it or not—their 80's!

If you're someone who's suddenly 60 (or not yet there but wondering how sex will fare at that age) and worried that your fun lovin' days are over, here are some smart ways to keep a relatively active sex life well into your older years.

The truth is, sex changes as we get older, but it can be equally satisfying and rewarding. As we age, our minds and bodies undergo many changes, a lot of them physical, and as a result, we have to look differently at how we have sex.

As a mature adult, one should have a good handle on what he/she wants in a partner, and how to go about finding it. You also need a clear understanding of what minimal requirements you have when searching for a partner. Society suggests that attractive people are young, wrinkle-free, have perfect bodies, and smooth skin, so it's no wonder that some older folks have issues with body image and being comfortable taking their clothes off.

Most people over the age of 60 have undergone physical changes that make having sex more challenging, or even painful. This is an opportunity, however, to discover other ways to have sex and experiment with new, more comfortable positions. How To Have Slower, More Sensual Sex
