Yes, Seniors Are Having Plenty Of Sex

While you may not want to think about your mom and dad still having, just know that they are, and your grandparents probably are too.

A new survey finds that 40% of Americans ages 65 to 80 are having sex, and that number goes up to 54% among seniors with spouses or partners. What’s more, 73% of them say they are satisfied with their sex life. Broken down in age groups, 46% of those between 65 and 70 are sexually active, while 39% of those 71 to 75 and 25% of those 76 to 80 say the same.

The survey also finds that while older men say they are more sexually active and interested (50%) than older women (31%), women are actually more sexually satisfied (43% of women vs. 31% of men). Health also plays a role in whether folks were having sex, with 45% of those sexually active saying they are in good or excellent health, while only 22% of those in poor health say the same.

  • And yes, some seniors are getting a little help to, well, get it on. Overall, 18% of senior men say they use medications or supplements to improve their sexual function, while only 3% of women do.
