DoRREE lyNN A photo: © Ursula Alter Share this article with your friends. 36 GRAND sk any 20-something about sex for grandparents and they will probably look a bit grossed out. Ask a 60-something about sex and they will likely give you a secret smile. That’s because we grands know the real truth that sex only gets better with age.

It is about an intimate connection, and it can easily begin in the morning with “I love you.” Intercourse is merely one element of “Frequent sex at older ages can help increase our lifespan.” JAN FEB 2012
