My mother was 90 and her boyfriend was 100 (My dad had died 8 years prior).

They had been videotaped and the video was on YouTube about sex in older age. They also interviewed a much younger couple that was 85 and 83.

Both couples met at the assisted living residence and both were discussing their sexual relationship. Harry, my mother’s boyfriend said he wants to have sex twice a week but my mom wanted it once a week. He said when they make love, “I pass out, but it is a good pass out.” (LOL) It was truly a precious video and not surprisingly, it got a lot of views on YouTube.

My mother’s theme was that “90” and “100” are only numbers and they are free to enjoy each other as they wanted.

I am not sure exactly what Harry and my mom did when they made love, but they did something and they had sex of some kind.

If a 90 and 100-year-old can get it on, what about the rest of us that are not newlyweds anymore?

It is a gift that we can enjoy our sexuality and our bodies. Some people need to adapt and modify what they can and cannot do in the bedroom, but sex can continue long into our older years.

Rather than the actual “number of your age” be the problem, it is more likely getting stuck in non-intimate ruts day after day, week after week and year after year.

I have witnessed so many couples that after years of not having sex, they started again. Having great sex as you age requires three main things:

A bolder more courageous interpersonal vision
A willingness to go through a period of awkwardness as thy shift back to being lovers
Follow through and consistency
For those couples that have lost their sexual way, why settle for a non-sexual or barely sexual relationship when you can enjoy this gift?

Take a chance and invite your partner to be more intimate. Focus on connection and not performance.
