But a new study suggests that the status quo may not suit everyone. It found more than half of overs would like to have more sex. So, is sex in later life something to be celebrated and encouraged — or a subject best left behind a closed bedroom door? Linda Kelsey pictured65, says it's a myth that people over 60 are no longer interested in sex. She argues the idea of older women wanting sex should be normalised. Hurrah for an older woman finally speaking up about the possibility a plus woman can actually have a fantastic sex life. Now this may come as a shock to some, but strikes me — as a year-old with a not-dead-yet libido who came of age during the sexually free Sixties — as blindingly obvious.
Ask my frisky friends of the same age and most of them feel the same. But I happen to know that the glow on the faces of these formerly forlorn divorcees and widows of a certain age comes not from HRT or cosmetic surgery, but the life-enhancing lift of finding a lover.
That a recent survey found half of older people wish they were having more sex is terribly depressing — what a lot of wasted opportunity. Just a quick glance at the website Gransnet — a chat board for older women — suggests not everyone is missing out. I believe we need to normalise this idea of older women wanting sex, be public about it, so older people can enjoy their sexuality rather than be embarrassed or ashamed of it.
Liz Hodgkinson pictured questions the challenges of finding a fanciable partner over 60 and says pillow talk would be difficult with someone from another generation. My friends and I talk a lot about sex, although sometimes the conversation is rather more prosaic than it used to be. Viagra often comes up as it were. Female aids are a hot topic. And we giggle over things like the use of strategically placed cushions to alleviate the pain of a dodgy hip.
Or whether we can still bear to do it with the lights on, knowing that our less perky parts will be on show.
These somethings, in the shape of Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin, looking for love and sex and having a laugh about it is a tonic for older sexually interested women who feel like freaks. They may even be a tad envious of us ancient yet active folk. Last week, in fact, my partner of ten years sent me a silly and mildly sexy text message. Many older women are powering through their later years.
One of my best girlfriends has just done a Masters degree in her mids and after 30 years of marriage to a man who decided to abandon ship, has found herself a lover. In order to have good sex, you have to feel good about yourself. It seems that wherever you turn these days, older women, and especially celebrities, are talking about sex. The latest is year-old Lesley Manville, who plays the frosty, disapproving and far-from-sexy sister to dress deer Daniel Day-Lewis in the new film Phantom Thread. Liz pictured revealed she's given up finding a suitable lover following the death of her last partner 14 years ago.
It is all fantasy, a wish fulfillment, a hankering after the young, or even middle-aged, arousal and desire that has sadly vanished from our lives for ever. Now nobody likes to think that they are past it, and hinting at a wonderful sex life without going into details is the best way of preserving the myth that you remain astonishingly youthful and vibrant, the envy of your contemporaries — whose own sex lives have now become but a distant dream. If you have been married for half a century to the same person, it is highly unlikely you are going to find each other sexually irresistible any more.
Indeed, most long-married people tell me their sex lives disappeared decades ago. And if you are single, female and over 60, the chances of finding somebody new with whom to have wonderful sex, even if you are a famous film star, are almost non-existent. If you are just an ordinary woman, forget it. My experience, and that of most of my single female friends, is that beyond a certain age, there is nobody out there for us.
We may be raring to go, but where are the potential lovers? For some time since my partner died 14 years ago, I tried to find a replacement, a witty, intelligent, attractive man with whom to share my declining years, and yes, with any luck, to have some mutually satisfying sex — even if we could not be so athletic as in our younger years. I thought there must be plenty such around, widowed, divorced or single older men who had plenty of life left in them and who were looking for an adventurous relationship.
For whereas many women nowadays look fantastic in their 60s, 70s and beyond, the same cannot be said of the men. As I go to the gym every day, I have the opportunity to observe older men in various states of undress, in their swimming trunks or ancient shorts. And they are not a pretty sight, I can tell you. They are either rather overweight or thin and spindly, bent over the treadmill, grimly going through their paces as advised by their doctor, no doubt. And these are the men who go to the gym! At least they are trying. In any case, most available older men are looking for somebody to take care of them in their old age.
Either that or they are hoping for a rich widow.
Although men in their 60s and 70s are eagerly ing onto dating sites, none of them have any money. So even if sex was not on the agenda, there would be no possibility either of hedonistic weekends away or round-the-world cruises. One might ask, if all the men of my age are so decrepit and poverty-stricken, what about an enthusiastic younger lover? True, the sex might be better — or actually have a good chance of happening — but what would the pillow talk be like?
For sex, however mind-blowing, is only one aspect of an intimate relationship. You also want somebody with whom you can share ideas and life experiences, and that is not easy with a lover of a different generation. I have two sons in their late 40s and cannot imagine that they, or any of their mates, would be wild with excitement at the prospect of a sexual liaison with a year-old woman— however well-preserved.
No, the ones who are divorced or still single are looking for younger lovers, not vastly older ones.
