Seniors holding on tight to sexuality as they age, say trendwatchers.

Mature adults entering assisted living homes refuse to leave their sexuality behind when they move in, say experts examining older adults and sex. Eldercare residents have researchers on their side arguing that sex is a basic human need, which shouldn’t be denied just because of their living arrangements, experts say.

Elderly volunteers are less likely to suffer from frailty than their peers who work for pay.


Volunteering may provide protection against frailty as we age, says a study from UCLA that found that when compared to child care and working for pay. Frailty in the elderly involved weight loss, low energy and strength, and low physical activity. The study examined 1.072 healthy adults aged 70 to 79 between 1988 and 1991 to determine which activities are most likely to prevent frailty. After controlling for levels of physcial and cognitive function, researchers found that only volunteering offered anti-frailty benefits to seniors.

Who says granny panties aren't sexy? Study says that 70 somethings still got it.


Sex just gets better and better, says a study just published in the British Medical Journal which examined the love lives of men and women in their 70s. The research found that people in their 70s, especially women, are satisfied and happy with their sex lives. This study is unique in that it looked at normally functioning sexual behavior of seniors, rather than focusing on sexual dysfunction, as most studies examining cohorts in this age group have.

Seniors who surf the Web have money and want to spend it.

The number of seniors surfing the Internet and spending online is growing, says eMarketer, which estimates that the number of Internet-using seniors aged 62 and over will grow to 25.4 million by the year 2011, up from 17.6 million in 2006. With an expected 7.6 percent average growth rate, more than double the 3.1 percent growth rate of the whole U.S. Internet population, this makes seniors the fastest growing online demographic in the country.



Older and Wiser, and Happier

Matures comprise America’s happiest age group.



A Harris Poll has found that nearly half (47 percent) of adults aged 65 and older consider themselves to be “very happy,” compared with less than a third (29 percent) of those between the ages 18 and 24. In fact, as two other studies have also focused on older people, their happiness, and their levels of social connectedness, the word is that Matures may well be the happiest demographic in America.
