Sexual health is important at any age. And the desire for intimacy is timeless. As you age, sex may not be the same as it was in your 20s, but it can still be very fulfilling. Discover which aspects of sexual health are likely to change as you age — and how you and your partner can adapt.
Australia's Prime Minister Scott Morrison on Tuesday acknowledged mounting dissatisfaction with his handling of a series of allegations about the mistreatment of women in politics, as he vowed to drive cultural change. Morrison's comments came just hours after the whistleblower—identified only as Tom—told the news outlets that government staffers and MPs often used a Parliament House prayer room to have sex, and alleged that sex workers had been brought into the building "for the pleasure of coalition MPs". He also said a group of staffers routinely swapped explicit photos of themselves, and he received so many he had "become immune to it". He said there was a "culture of men thinking that they can do whatever they want" and while he did not think the staffers had broken any laws, "morally, they are bankrupt". One government staff member has been removed from his position, a government minister said on Tuesday. Morrison described the report as "disgusting" and said he would speak with all government staff members on Tuesday to remind them of their responsibilities.
Sex has health benefits such as boosting your immune system, lowering blood pressure and burning calories. The truth is, rather than feel sexually stalled, there is a large body of research showing that a lot of action is going on between the sheets among those in their 50s and older. When it comes to those in their 50s, a separate study found that up to 91 percent of men and 86 percent of women are sexually active. And one in three somethings is having sex at least once a week.
