Apparently Jane Fonda needs to be on the leading edge of everything and her aggressive attitude towards engaging in sex in her 70’s comes as no surprise. Of course her blabbing about it is expected as well – it seems that for celebs today, if they can’t flaunt what it is they do and did, then its like they didn’t really do it – pathetic no? Besides the revolting Fonda’s take on sex for seniors the issue of whether to pursue an active sex life once you reach your 70’s remains a moot point for many. That is because on the one hand many are already engaged in the activity and don’t need to make any decisions, or on the other hand, especially in the case of men, they are largely incapable without medical intervention. A man needs a decent supply of testosterone in order to respond sexually.
However many if not most men produce very low levels of testosterone by the time they are middle-aged (hence the flabby gut and lowered energy levels) and in their 70’s are pretty hopeless when it comes to getting erections. The lucky thing is that there are treatments readily available for this lack of testosterone – either through injections or topical application a man can increase his testosterone levels and enjoy a resurgence of sexual potency. Women often use estrogen replacement therapy after menopause and others seem not to need any help whatsoever in remaining virile throughout their lives.
So given that the senior is physically capable of "performing" sexually, is there really any question remaining? Of course people should continue (or start!) to enjoy sexual activity when they hit their 70’s – besides being good exercise it can help people increase their feelings of love and belonging and how can that be bad?
