Just date older women, that is, if you can keep up with us!

That seems to be an issue for many men. As guys get older our hormone levels drop...while women reach their sexual peak at the same time. This leaves guys not interested in sex as much.

What fun is that? Might as well stay home with my "little friend." Actually I already do.

It is all over the news both in the US and UK. Researcher believe it is a combo of Internet dating and not worrying about pregnancy, so forgetting about the other very real dangers of exchanging bodily fluids.
Could it be that older men are less likely to wear condoms b/c they have less sensation than they used to, even with viagra?

No, I am afraid Hubby and I never use condoms ( unless I am on antibiotics and it negates my contraception). We have been together for 23 years and quite frankly I would prefer to trust him ( and likewise for him) .


Yes there is a tiny risk but it is a risk I am willing to take. For me sex with a condom is just not "proper" sex.

I do not get the same pleasure or satisfaction from it and he hates it.

This might be considered irresponsibly and naive by many but life's too short quite frankly.


I like sex "au naturel" as it was meant to be. A piece of rubber takes the whole romance of sex away for both of us. There is something so premeditated about it and the whole shenanigans of the process of finding the condom, and putting it on is a huge turn off. It is like an interval at the theatre , completely annoying and a break in the flow of things.

I agree.


But for the record, I do practice safe sex w/ new partners, and for a good while. But when I end up in these long term things, we eventually just say **** it.
