Research shows older Americans are sexually active, from the Harvard Health Letter
Research is showing that Americans are staying sexually active in their 60s, 70s, and even 80s, reports the December 2010 issue of the Harvard Health Letter.
The article sums up findings from two important surveys investigating the sexuality of older Americans. Indiana University researchers reported earlier this year that 20% to 30% of long-lived Americans are sexually active into their 80s. And a University of Chicago survey published several years ago showed that half of Americans continue to engage in sexual activity well into their 70s.
