The Old Folks Are Still Getting It On!

I bet most of you don't like to think about your parents having sex, but what about your grandparents? Even if the thought makes you cringe, past research shows that men and women up into their '80s are still getting it on! A recent article on MSNBC touches upon this topic.

Nursing home sex has been taboo for quite some time now but experts want to lift that stigma and researchers are finding ways to educate their staff and provide the elderly with privacy so they can satisfy their sexual needs. As more baby boomers are shacking up in nursing homes with their 1950s and '60s attitudes about sex, it's no wonder this is of some concern.

Since the elderly in nursing homes need special care, safety is of course the first priority, but being able to feel intimacy, regardless of age, has proven to be just as important. Do you agree with this new directive to get the staff talking and asking questions about sex in nursing homes?
