You don’t have to admit that the title scares you away a little bit (I still turn up my face a little at the thought), but this topic is interesting to me because it shows that no matter the age, people are always interested in sex.  No one wants to imagine their parents having sex, let alone their grandparents. It brought up an interesting conversation, however.

Younger people tend to think that as they age or begin to date more long term, they do not need a form of birth control. While hormonal birth control may not be used among the older adults – I’m talking post menopausal women age – condoms are still very important to prevent transmission of STDs and HIV. Age doesn’t mean you get a disinterest in sex. It also does not mean that you do not have to use birth control. You should always use some form of birth control – whether that be hormonal, barrier or both. While getting pregnant may not always be a worry, contracting an STD or HIV should be.

I could go on forever, but I don’t want to bore you. So as the title indicates, sex can still be an interesting activity at any age, but one must always remember to protect themselves each and every time!!.For more information on sexual and reproductive health topics, text “sext” to 74574.
