Carry on Oldies

I hope my 4 kids have not read today's newspapers. And the same goes for every other young person with a parent approaching or at pension age. They would be utterly disgusted. The papers are full of 'stuff' about pensioners having sex. When I was young, I assumed sex was something that one retired from around fifty-ish. Older than that and it didn't seem at all 'nice'. Well, things have changed - and not just for the 90 year old Indian farmer I posted about yesterday.

Its on the front page of the Telegraph - and the whole of page 7 in the Mail. I dread to think what the Daily Sport did with this story. These are the facts, according to Dr Richard Susman of the National Institute of Ageing in Chicargo. 73% of the 57 to 64 year olds were still at it - as were 53% of the 65 to 74 year olds. And wait for it - 26% of the 75 to 85s were in there too. And it gets worse. In the US, warnings are going out to these silver threads about sexually transmitted diseases. Until today, all this post retirement activity had been a closely guarded secret. Now everyone knows. Edward and Karen are coming home tomorrow. I won't be able to look them in the eye. Oh, and johnny foreigner, this post should have a flag on it.

Thanks for the heads up Glyn. Flag noted.

Only four children you say. Presumably, your contraceptive education was not wasted. Unlike your naughty pal Ram, eh!

Nothing wrong with a bit of nookie for the oldies. It has been noted that sex for the seniors goes some way towards the prevention of circulatory problems.

More power to your elbow, that's what I say, metaphorically speaking of course.

Your priapic pal.

Shocking report! Whatever next?

Trust the flag was a Welsh one.

It behoves all Welsh Octo and Nonogenarians to do their duty and sire abundant Welsh-speaking children in order to increase the indigenous Welsh population, particularly in rural Wales. Their nation will be eternally grateful.
Glyn may wish to establish suitable breeding stations across the country to ensure the best stock.

Glyn. I understand you have so much on your mind these days - independence and sex and all that,
but could you add me to your blog listing? Thx. Alan
