More Sex for Today's Seniors? New Book Reveals the Secrets to Sexual Bliss in the 'Golden Years'
Speaker/Author Phil Parker Releases His Third Title, Grandpa Does Grandma: The ABCs of Senior SexGrandpa Does Grandma: The ABCs of Senior Sex is just in time for Valentine's Day lovers (old and young) to continue expressing their love for the remaining days this year! Parker uses 26 tastefully done illustrations that complement each letter for your visual enjoyment.
With wit, humor and even a softer side (from a female's point of view), The ABCs of Senior Sex offers a sexual romp through the alphabet written not only for seniors but also for anyone who believes that older people aren't "doing it" anymore! Parker says, "This book is about acknowledging and confirming that we're never too old to enjoy our bodies and the pleasure we derive from exploring and fulfilling one another." He continues, "People's attitudes have changed about sex. The seniors of today are not the seniors of yesterday, trust me!"
Today's seniors report that they are having sex far more often and have more positive feelings associated with sex than their counterparts just 30 years ago. According to the study, from 1971 to 2000 the proportion of 70-year-olds reporting sexual intercourse increased, although interestingly, more married men say they are having sex than married women. Among married men, 68 percent were having sex, compared to 52 percent in 1971. Among married women, 56 percent were having sex, compared to 38 percent in the 1970s. Inspired in part by a visit to a local bookstore where he usually begins his day with friends, Parker was approached by a female employee in her early 20s with whom he normally exchanged morning pleasantries and was asked his age. When he replied he was going on 70, the young woman asked, "Now that you are almost 70 and don't have sex anymore, what do you do for excitement?"Parker continues, "She was serious! I quickly satisfied her curiosity and went about my business. It did, however, get me thinking. Does the majority of our younger generation believe that seniors don't have or enjoy sex?"
