Sex drive 'thriving' in people over 65

Sex drive

People from the UK are enjoying a thriving sex-life well into their sixties, a survey has shown.

According to a report published by Age UK, a quarter of over-65s claimed that their love life hasn't changed despite their age, and 8 percent of the same age group are keen to embark on a new sexual relationship, the Independent reported.

A total of 2,000 over 65-year-olds were surveyed, out of which 12 percent said that they would like to try out new things with their partners.

Meanwhile, 18 percent of women and 27 percent of men said that they would like to be more sexually active.

More than 25 percent said that they couldn't talk to their partners about sex and only 17 percent felt comfortable talking to health workers.
