 Healthy Sex Life Among Senior Citizens

A survey of 2,000 senior citizens above the age of 65 regarding their sex lives has revealed that most enjoy a healthy sex life.

The survey showed that Britons are enjoying healthy relationships and are satisfied sexually.


Nearly 25% of those who participated in the survey said that their love-life has not really changed over the years, despite their age. Some 8% of the respondents were also keen to explore a new sexual relationship.

Another 12% of participants responding to an online poll, admitted to a desire of trying different things with their partner. Some of them also wished to improve their sex lives.

Many respondents felt a bit hesitant to discuss this issue with their partners, though they felt at ease talking to health workers.
