SEPTEMBER SEX

When does  a person get too old for  sex? Never.  Because of their  amazing resilience, the  sexual  organs just  don’t wear out. 

Though most women  lose the ability to reproduce  after the  age of fifty  or so, and men rarely become  fathers after the seventh  decade, sexual intercourse is feasible (and desirable ) until the day one  departs for  a  better  world.

As a  matter of fact, continued sexual interest and activity after the age of sixty can even be considered therapeutic.

How can sex at that  age he ther4apeutic? Sexual intercourse and all the  events leading up to it are fascinating, stimulating, and exciting.  They provide our daily life  with much of its vitality  and verve. 

Men and women who  have relinquished most of their other activities such as working  and raising  a family need sex more,  not less, than before. 

An elderly man who waits out his last  years on the  local bowls   green  leads a dismal existence  compared to the gent who spends his  days  scoring  in a   different  sort of game. 

A crotchety old lady  rocking  away  the hours on her  front porch might  discover  that time would  go faster if she could look forward to breaking the monotony with a little time in bed.

This doesn’t  mean that older people should be transferred into sex maniacs (whatever  that is ) constantly looking for a way to titillate their sagging  libidos. 

But  much of  the isolation and  depression that accompanies old  age can be forestalled by the  socializing effects of searching for  suitable sexual partners. 

If they   had sex on their mind, senior  citizens   would  not have to be  prodded to get out and meet people- the problem might become getting them to come back home at night.

But isn’t  it a bit  indecent for old people to have sex? It’s hard to understand  why. If it’s  decent for a couple to have  intercourse when they  are forty-five  and indecent  for the same people to do the  same thing in the same way with the same genitals  when they are seventy-five , somebody’s  mixed up.

One of the problems is separating the functions of copulation and reproduction.  Part of the confusion is due to the  misconception, handed  down through  the years, that  sex without reproduction is sinful. 

As they get older many  individuals feels they no longer have a “reason” for sex.  Actually they don’t need one birth control.  Sexual intercourse  is enough  reason in itself.  If reproduction  is the  only  justification  for sex,  the human sexual equipment has been   grossly over-designed. 

A man only requires, in his   lifetime, enough sperm to father ten to twenty children.  Actually, in one ejaculation he has about 250,000 times that amount. 

For  reproduction  purposes  the human female only needs sufficient eggs to produce a family- but  she has the  capacity to produce   about  200,000.

Sex is one of the two renewable  pleasures available to human  beings.  Each  sexual experience can be   just  as enjoyable   as the one before – the two thousandth time can be  as much fun as the second  time. 

The other  renewable pleasure  is eating; a man of sixty can enjoy it as   much as he did when he  was  sixteen – may be even more, since he has developed  taste and discrimination frigidity.  Just as there is no valid reason  to give up eating   at an  arbitrary age,   there is  no reason to give up sex.
