The best sex of our lives

May 18, 2017

best-sexSo are you and your husband swinging from the bedroom chandelier after you file for Social Security?

Back a few years ago I saw so much writing about how seniors are having the best sex of our lives that I felt compelled to write this. Because in that regard, I really do believe the emperor had no clothes. And while the topic has cooled considerably and thankfully, it still has life in some circles.

So I’m re-sharing this post just because I like to tell the truth. And this IS the truth.

    Thanks for sharing this with us. I too remember when we had the commercials about this all over television. I couldn’t even watch tv with the kids!

    I was clueless about the whole senior sex thing until I read your post. Interesting read. 🙂

  11. This is quite a topic. It really is almost a taboo topic in today’s society.
    Thanks for sharing and opening my awareness.

    Well that certainly clears things up. Maybe those women really are having the best sex of their lives because they didn’t get enough when they were pre-menopausal. Actually, I’m not sure. Lol. I am just trying to understand what’s behind the whole “Best sex of our lives!” thing.

    I enjoyed reading that post! It’s really going to help open your mind more about what really happens after menopause. I don’t think it’s going to be the time when I have the best sex of my life.

  14. Wendy Polisi says:

    That is a brave post. It’s not easy to talk about awkward topics. IT needs to be done sometimes though!

  15. I have to say, I’ve always been told horror stories about “the change.” I’m grateful to know more details.

  16. Our Family World says:

    I am at a loss for something to say. I am aware of the body changes that come with menopause. Sure, there will be sexual needs, but I always thought that it would be the companionship, not sex, that would matter most to couples when they are that age already.

  17. Annemarie LeBlanc says:

    I think the reason why they say it is the best sex of their lives is because there is no chance of an unplanned pregnancy. Personally, I just don’t get why it should be tagged that way.

  18. Mardene Carr says:

    For the life of me I cannot understand why they have to sensationalize just about everything these days. Good read
