Older women sex dating
The survey results reflected a trend toward more open attitudes about sex than in the two previous surveys of 19.
Of note, the proportion of adults aged 45 who believed that people should not have a sexual relationship if they are not married fell from 41% in 1999 to 34% in 2004 and to 22% in 2009.
In recent years, a new at-risk group has been identified that has been relatively invisible until now: sexually active women aged 50 years or older.
Although the proportion of women who were sexually active decreased with age, 59% of women aged 60 reported being sexually active in the previous 6 months.
One need look only at the AARP Sex, Romance, and Relationships Survey of Midlife and Older Adults to see how sexual attitudes of men and women of this generation have changed.
The most recent survey was completed in 2009 by 1,670 adults aged 45 .
In the same study, more than 25% of women aged 65 indicated that they were moderately or highly interested in sex.
The Women’s Health Initiative data, representing 27,347 postmenopausal women aged 50-79, indicated that among the one-third of respondents who stated they were currently dissatisfied with their current level of sexual activity, more than 50% said they wanted to have sex more often.Postmenopausal women in particular may be at increased risk for acquiring HIV from an infected partner during heterosexual contact because of physiologic changes in the vagina.Thinner vaginal tissues and a reduced amount of vaginal lubrication may lead to abrasions or tears during sex that increase the chance that HIV will enter the bloodstream.More often than not, sexually active single older adults who are dating are not using condoms.
