Do old folks have sex?

Not in Florida apparently. After the Sinclair Institute ran an ad in the AARP magazine in Tampa Florida some old fart got real upset, according to the Tampa Bay Online.

You know, I’ve seen Sinclair’s ads. They’re very tasteful compared to what the general porn world views as an appropriate ad. In fact, I’m pretty dang sure they don’t even have nudity in their ads! The Sinclair Institute is a source for sexual information as well as being a retail, online store for sex toys and sexual aides. So let’s get hypothetical: You’re getting up there in years, and now you’ve run into a bad place in your relationship. Your partner has had hip replacement surgery and but you’re horny as hell. He can’t satisfy you the way you want, so should you cut all ties or should you try to make things work? I can’t imagine David Caton thought about that when he said, “It is truly a sad day for America’s moral environment when AARP lowers its standards to promote a company that sells hardcore explicit materials.” David – wake up call – people have sex at every age. There. I said it. People have sex at every age. You can’t stop it, it’s gonna happen. If they aren’t fucking on your living room floor, I don’t think you’re going to be able to stop it. Geez, look at Hugh Hefner for Pete’s sake.

I bet the guy who complained has the entire Playboy catalog.

It’s the AARP – they say in their mission statement on their website that the “AARP’s mission is to enhance the quality of life for all as we age, leading positive social change and delivering value to members through information, advocacy and service.” I believe that the Sinclair Institute falls directly into their desire to make a quality of life better for every person.

Why do you think science invented Viagra?! It’s for the old people who want to still have sex. What are they supposed to do now that they are older, have erect penises, but a bad back? Obviously that old man won’t be thrusting his woman as hard as he’d like. It’s good to know that there are tools out there that can help ease any difficulties so that couple can have sex. There are also videos out there that explain how to have great sex at any age. In fact, the Better Sex Guide video series is considered to be the US’s biggest selling sexual aid series.

I haven’t read the AARP Magazine and seen first-hand what this ad actually looks like, but judging on the ads I’ve seen in Good Housekeeping and Guns and Ammo, I’m pretty sure it’s more subdued that the angry man makes it out to be. (Really, who wants angry NRA members coming after them?) There are just some people in this world that like to complain. (And I should know, I’m one of them!)
