YOUR 15 MINUTES: Sexy Seniors

Ever wonder what your grandma and grandpa are doing in the bedroom? I know, me either but researchers decided to take a look at the sex lives of senior citizens and they came up with some interesting results:

Many older Americans routinely engage in vaginal intercourse, oral sex and masturbation, a landmark study into a long-taboo subject reported Wednesday. Sexual activity reported among the 3,005 men and women who participated in the survey did decrease with age, particularly among the oldest participants -- from 73 percent among those 57 to 64 years of age to 53 percent among those 65 to 74 years of age to 26 percent among those 75 to 85 years of age. Of those who were active, most said they had sex two to three times a month or more. Among those who said they were sexually active, about half of men and women reported at least one sexual problem that bothered them, including low desire (43 percent), difficulty with vaginal lubrication (39 percent) and inability to climax (34 percent).The most common problem reported by men was difficulty gaining or maintaining an erection (37 percent).About one in seven men (14 percent) said they were using drugs like Viagra to improve their performance.
