American longevity is at an all time high so that means that we have a larger senior population now than we've ever had before. American longevity is way up because we are taking better care of ourselves, we are well advised about health issues, and medical care is sought by more people. Unfortunately, many seniors don't realize that they can still be sexually active and enjoy life. Many seniors get stuck with the mind set that once they reach a certain age they just have to take advantage of services for seniors and be treated like an old person, but they don't! Seniors can live life to it's fullest, enjoying the things that they have always enjoyed. Seniors need to remember that they can use it, or lose it and this applies to sexuality, activity, and energy. If our elderly don't go out and have fun, they'll forget how to do it.
Because of better health longevity is something that people can expect to experience. Men and women can expect to see their later years, and if we can get people in the mindset that they can stay young as long as they want to, we'll all be better off. Many people assume that when they themselves or their parents get older that they should stay put and not do much, or that they shouldn't enjoy life the way they used to. If we could reverse that mindset it would be wonderful, because there isn't any reason why our elderly people shouldn't be out and about enjoying life, dating, going out to dinner, and yes even having sex! We are human, and we are sexual by nature, this includes older people as well. There is no reason that elderly people need to stop having sex and experiencing the sexual part of who they are. Though it's strange for younger people to think of the elderly people having sex, why shouldn't they? It's part of life, part of who we are social and sexual creatures.
American longevity is something that will catch up with all of us; we will all have to deal with getting older because we are healthier and better cared for than ever before. If we can change the attitudes about how the elderly are supposed to behave we can actually encourage seniors to live better lives. When we encourage seniors to live better lives we can set a new standard that says it is a good idea to really enjoy your golden years. When you get to a certain age and you are able to retire, why shouldn't you be able to go out and do the things you are capable of doing, and have fun with people who are your age? Why not live a sexually active lifestyle and enjoy your later years when you've earned the right to do all the things you love?
American longevity will likely keep going up and up, we will probably just keep raising the bar. We need to change our attitudes so that we can all have some shameless fun when we get to be that age. If you get to the age where you are able to retire and you still feel good, you shouldn't have to be ashamed of that!
You should be able to go out and enjoy yourself and do all the things you were never able to do while you were young and busy with your life!
