Sex & The Senior Life

Relax. This isn’t a NSFW-type post, nor is it even remotely pornographic or dirty or what have you. I bring it up because A) You’re interested, just admit it & B) A lot of people don’t think it occurs.

Well, it does.

I’ve gotten asked this question a lot: “Are people who live in retirement or nursing homes allowed to have sex?” And my answer is always: Yes!

First of all: “Allowed”? These people are adults. As long as they are of sound mind and not taking advantage of someone with Alzhiemers or vice versa, than why the heck not? If they have the energy to get up (haha, pun INTENDED!) than why shouldn’t they enjoy themselves?

This type of thing is more related to Retirement homes, as nursing homes are more for people who are dealing with dementia, etc. A lot of people move into retirement NOT because they are incapable of taking care of themselves, but because they’re lonely and want more interaction and company. Maybe their house became too much for them. There are a ton of reasons. A retirement home or a nursing home is someone’s HOME. And like any other home, they can pretty much do as they please.

Another popular question: “Have you ever caught anyone having sex?”
And my answer is no.

Sorry you dirty perverts out there, I have never come across this. I HAVE however almost walked in on a resident watching porn. I could hear sounds of a sexual nature coming through his door, so I just walked away. During my co-op I was cleaning out the garbage of a resident’s room and came across the packaging for a Flesh Light. If you don’t know what that is, feel free to look it up but I’m not explaining it here 🙂

So there you have it. Sex & the senior life. It’s pretty hot.
