Ashley Maddison, Upforit, Cheating Wives, Zoosk, Match.com, POF, to name a few.Seniors are taking advantage of the immoral conduct of young people that are selling themselves cheap on the internet. Sun City West in Arizona is a prime example of where seniors will have sex just about anywhere, with anyone!
For instance, in Arizona’s retirement-heavy (and, for what it’s worth, extremely socially and politically conservative) Pima and Maricopa counties, reported cases of syphilis and chlamydia among those 55 and older rose 87 percent from 2005 to 2009.
Central Florida saw a 71 percent rise in the same timeframe, and South Florida saw a 60 percent rise.
Plus, there are other aging-related health issues that can complicate matters—everything from heart disease to liver damage to diabetes to whatever else you can think of.
Making matters worse is the fact that STDs can be asymptomatic for lengthy periods, meaning they often go untreated. Firstly, it increases the odds of passing the STD along to some other unsuspecting soul.
And it’s not just older men who are sexually proactive via medication. The children and grandchildren of these folks typically received relatively useful sex education in school, including “safe sex” talks, but today’s seniors did not.
Older women are happily using progesterone and estrogen creams along with numerous other potions and products that both keep them more interested in sex and make sex more comfortable and enjoyable. Instead, they got 8mm hygiene films that chided “Dirty Davey” for not washing his hands before lunch.
And it wouldn’t hurt if we started giving away free condoms in senior centers, bars that cater to seniors, and other senior citizen social venues. Robert Weiss LCSW, CSAT-S is Senior Vice President of Clinical Development with Elements Behavioral Health.
He has developed clinical programs for The Ranch outside Nashville, Tennessee, Promises Treatment Centers in Malibu, and The Sexual Recovery Institute in Los Angeles.
In other words, the concept of catching chlamydia from the girl (or the grandma) next door is not something that likely crosses most seniors’ minds.
As such, as far as the AARP generation is concerned, if tonight’s lucky lady is post-menopausal (no danger of pregnancy), then there’s no need for a condom and hooray for us old folks for not having to worry about that.
In some ways it looks as if the hard-partying denizens of Animal House have simply moved their shenanigans into the Shady Palms Retirement Villa.
