Older people ‘having the best sex of their lives,’ survey claims

A third of the over 50s are living their best sex lives

Older people are having the best sex of their lives, according to a sex toy retailer survey.

The poll from LELO UK looks at the sex habits from those who are over 50.

And results indicate 70% of respondents have noticed significant changes in their sex life compared to when they were younger.

The thousand people polled were also asked about how frequently they’re having sex, where they’re doing it and what they’re using.

Where are older people having sex?

It seems the majority of older people surveyed prefer to have sex upstairs (unless they live in a bungalow, that is).

The survey found 82% over 50s are most comfortable having sex in the bedroom.

And a third enjoy having sex in the bathroom.

However, LELO UK feels older people are more comfortable with ‘experimenting’ than ever before.

That’s because other popular places for a spot of ‘how’s your great-grandfather’ include the living room (55%).

Sex and relationship expert Kate Moyle said: “Sexual wellness and wellbeing is something that should be present for people whatever age and stage they are at in their lives. It should not be exclusive.”

She added: “What is important is that we acknowledge that our sex lives don’t stay static but can change and adapt with us as we move through our lives.”
