The Zoomer Report: 70-Year-Olds Sex

Here’s some new research that will make Zoomers happy. According to a
Swedish study more 70-year-olds are having good sex more often.

The researchers found 70-year-olds of both sexes are having more sex than
they did 30 years ago, and many more women report being satisfied with their
sex lives.

They interviewed four groups of 70-year-olds in Sweden about their sex lives
between 1971 and 2001. They found that 68 per cent of married men said they
were having sex in 2001, up from 52 per cent in the early ’70s. The number
of married women having sex rose to 54 per cent, up from 30 per cent in the
early 70s.

And 12 per cent of unmarried women interviewed in 2000-2001 said they were
having sex, up from less than 1 per cent in the early ’70s. The number
of women reporting high sexual satisfaction also increased, with more women
reporting an orgasm during sex.

Interestingly, the number of men reporting low sexual satisfaction rose. But
this might be because men are now more open in talking about sexual failure.

The study appears in the British Medical Journal.
