I can’t believe this is news. I wasn’t going to write about it, but it seems like everywhere I look there is an article about the study published in the New England Journal of Medicine that found people to be sexually active well into their 60’s and 70’s. I guess I just have a different perspective as a medical student, but I am well aware that people do not become asexual beings once they hit 65. There isn’t some magic switch that flips to “off” once you start collecting social security or qualify for Medicare. Does anyone else think it’s weird that this is news? Maybe I’m the weird one for not being surprised.
