Grand Belle Du Jour

Loneliness affects many seniors, especially if he or she is widowed. But not many seniors take the extraordinary step that Britain’s 81-year-old Sheila Vogel-Coupe took to thwart her boredom — she became an escort and performed in the porn film The Great British Granny Bang. She explained: “I started because I live on my own and I was feeling lonely and I do feel lonely. I’d had two very happy marriages but unfortunately they’d both died of illnesses and it upset me very much. I’m on my own in a flat and I was thinking I’d like to have a bit of male company as I’d always enjoyed male company.”
