Sexiness And Age

    Society has the atavistic premise that exuberant sexuality and attractiveness belongs to young people.  Some people as they get older begin to lose interest in their looks and do not seek to remain attractive and let themselves go.    They have succumb to the societal premise that once one becomes entrenched in middle age, one does not have to worry about being so-called attractive and/or exuberantly sexy.   

    When one becomes old, it is assumed that NOW they are no longer interested in their appearance and sexuality, particularly with women.    However,  there are attractive people in their late 60s and beyond.   For example, Rita Moreno, is 81 years young and still as beautiful and vibrant as ever.    Many older people are not falling for the premise that attractiveness and sexuality are for young people.    They keep themselves attractive and alert in addition to savoring life to its fullest.

      In my opinion sexiness and age not interconnect at all, because as said my "gmwilliams" lots of people look sexier in old age also..... So we can not say older/aged people are less sexier than younger people.

    I see attractive older women all the time and disagree that, generally, women lose interest in their appearane as they age.  I know one lady in her late 90's who still dresses to the nines.

    My children tell me regularly they're so proud 'their' mom is beautiful and sexy and not embaressed to be in public with me tongue lol unfortunately, visual appeal is preferable to many people regardless their age and annoying when 'health problems' are not taken into consideration.

    If I may, I would like to disagree some ! When I was younger and heard about people in their 80s being still sexually active, I thought "yeah right!". Now I think :why not ? True, there is a segment of "seniors" who give up on everything and just let go. I know some. But I think a majority of aging people try to keep up with the younger Jones, and I see it quite often too. I live in Florida where the percentage of retired people is quite high, to say things mildly. I am myself a 16 years old boy trapped inside the body of a 64 years old man, not exactly a spring lamb by any standards. However, I am not retired and do not intend to do so anytime soon. I do manual work, so if I stop, within a few months I will have lost my dexterity and I'm afraid it won't come back. I'm also afraid to get bored even though that has never happened to me so far. Every friday night I go dancing, ballroom dancing as it's called. About another 120 people gather together and dance from 7.30 to 10.00 PM. in the small town I live in. I can assure you, there are women there who are absolutely breathtaking and I'm one of the youngest kids on the block. I think the oldest woman there as far as I know just turned 90 and she's still waltzing around. Last summer, I redid the roof of my house by myself and it's quite a steep roof. Age, like many other things, takes place mostly in the head. I am not denying the fact that the body, unfortunately also ages, and mine is certainly no exception.I have experienced two heart attacks so far, so it's fair to say, I've got some miles on the clock. But comes friday, I put on a suit and a tie and dance the night away. But under the fallacious pretext of dancing, we're all there for one reason :meet someone and I can assure you it's pretty obvious. I never know when I'm going to bump into my Audrey Hepburn smile

    This reminds me of what Madonna once said: "Not only does society suffer from racism and sexism but it also suffers from ageism. Once you reach a certain age you're not allowed to be adventurous, you're not allowed to be sexual. I mean, is there a rule? Are you supposed to just die?" - I think I like that but then again, of course there is this thing called maturity ( a gentle term for yeah, getting old) and acceptance of the fact that we do mature and things do change when we reached that stage. Just saying...


    Aging gracefully~

    Why should people give up on sex as they get older ? It is the one enjoyable pasttime that is free and can be enjoyed at anytime , My husband is 65 - still sexy and we make love every morning that he is at home - When traveling we will be together everyday ! We have a better sex life than a lot of younger couples !

    I do believe one must possess a bit of vanity(if you call it that) to maintain a sense of external beauty. It does indeed start inside, but if it cannot resonate externally as well, it's a mute existence. I like to look beautiful in my own way and without the "loud" commercial sense of beauty. I know I am attractive because my allure is in my words, my actions and often is evident in my attire.

    Age has nothing to do with beauty: we all are petals waiting to unfold but it requires nurturing, care, attention and occasionally a few bubble baths!

      I did that when I was 17. I was too young to know it was a thing. I was just newly married and couldn't control myself so when the urge struck, I didn't repress it. I couldn't figure out why the flight attendants were all giving us dirty looks... I thought, "how could they know?"

    it is amazing how good older people would look if they looked after themselves through exercise, good nutrition and dressing well. I have seen women in their 40's and 50's who still look like they are in their 30's because they take good care of themselves. I always say I want to be with someone who takes care of themselves. Also it seems that once people are married and off the market they lose interest in their looks, which is sad really, looking good and being fit could do wonders for couples.

      You are so right.   Rita Moreno is 80 years of age and looks like she is in her 50s!     She dresses youthful and fabulously.    DON'T STOP UNTIL YOU DROP-ENOUGH SAID, PURE AND SIMPLE!

    It is sad that some dress like slobs , don't shower - Never wear sexy lingerie or want to enjoy sex  then wonder why their partner gets interested in someone else  after a long time of being together.
    Sex is for both the male and female to enjoy & experiment with  !
