Video chat over 60 Online video sex chat in mobile
“It’s the secret sex life of your parents and grandparents.” That’s what one 70-year-old woman in Somerset told Channel 4 News.In fact, 51 per cent of people over 60 told us they are sexually active and many describe enjoying a late sexual bloom.
And just like younger people, most are turning to the internet to do so.
Connie, 83, from London has just signed up for a dating site, even though she can’t work a computer.
Joey, 69, from London said: “I got to a point where I thought I’m going to kick the bucket fairly soon.” So three months ago, he joined Grindr, the mobile dating app for gay men, and told us he’s now “averaging, I would say, four men a week”.
Joey is like almost half of all our respondents (46 per cent) who told us that sex is important to their lives.
Justin has had people come to him using household products as lubricants- shampoo, hand cream and even cooking oil.
“There does need to be perhaps a focus on trying to make services more older people friendly.” In many ways it is no surprise that older people are taking risks.They see each other most days, but Carole says: “It’s more exciting seeing each other when you don’t see each other all the time.” David was keen to avoid the compromising involved by sharing each other’s space. “You don’t want to be in a close, tight relationship again with all that involves, with all the sort of mundane things.” Throughout our research we have repeatedly heard how this second chance at love and sex was entirely unexpected. In exclusive research, Channel 4 News carried out in-depth interviews with 76 over-60s all over the country and polled another 500 to find out about love, sex and relationships in what is fast becoming a new, old age.“I can say that sometimes in the street I think: ‘Oh yeah, that would be a nice person to go to bed with’,” Vikki, 70, from Dorset told us.Solange, 79, from Wales told us: “I might have been in my 40s when I had an inkling of what it was. Solange added: “My take on older men right now is that they’re looking for a housekeeper or a care-giver, neither of which roles I am prepared to take on.” And so living apart seems to be a growing trend among older people trying to keep things fresh.Tags: Adult Dating, affair dating, sex dating
