Sex and the Sixty (Year Old) Pt 7

March 2, 2012


My friend Susan is back, after a short hiatus from the world of online dating (“I am NEVER going to do this again, and you can’t make me”). I had my work cut out for me. I gave her a lot of reasons why she should jump back in (“You are a fabulous woman and you […]

Middle Age vs The Middle Ages

February 22, 2012


Many people nowadays confuse being middle aged with being in the Middle Ages.  They can be forgiven for a certain amount of confusion, since neither group of people had births recorded on iPhones and immediately posted on social media networks around the planet.  Neither group grew up with Tickle Me Elmo and Teenage Mutant Ninja […]

Dating After 50: Revealing Secrets. Or not.

February 9, 2012


An overwhelming number of people who choose to enter the dating world after age 50 have already lived at least 50 years.  And, if they are like most people over 50 (and many people under,) some of their early choices in life, while not resulting in life in a maximum security prison, may have still […]

The Rebuttal

January 21, 2012


As Sitting Bull said, after the Battle of the Little Bighorn, “There are two sides to every story.”  And, because I would heartily agree, I hereby present a rebuttal from Movie Man. Movie Man, aka Mike, is actually a Good Guy and he has become a good friend of Susan’s, in spite of their first date.  When […]

Sex and the Sixty (Year Old) Pt 5

January 20, 2012


I’ve had a lot of fun writing about Susan this week.  Many of you, consisting of one person, asked if Susan was real.  I have actually asked her that same question on several occasions, and she has always considered thoughtfully and then told me to shut up. Susan and I have been friends since 1998.  […]

Sex and the Sixty (Year Old) Pt 1

January 16, 2012


Welcome to a five-part series of reposts, a veritable cornucopia of past drivel, a best of, a past hits, a test of quantum physics.  If all reality isn’t reality at all, and if everything is happening at the same time with no past, present, or future, then not only isn’t this a repost, the events portrayed are […]

7 Quick Steps to Better Sex

December 15, 2011


AARP has come out with a guide to “7 Quick Steps to Better Sex.”  This is important for two reasons.  One is that the steps are “quick.” If they weren’t, we might get caught in mid-air, forgetting why the chandelier is at eye level and why there is a naked person lying on the bed […]

A Muckle of Midlife Crises

October 22, 2011


  There has been a spate (This is the first time the writer has written this word) of articles lately about the warning signs that one is going through a midlife crisis.  These recent articles are different than the last caboodle (synonym of “spate”) of such articles in that they have been written more recently, […]

Go to Craft Fairs or Become A Lesbian

August 4, 2010


Elisabeth Hasselbeck thinks a lot of older lesbians would have turned out straight if they could only land a man.  The co-host of “The View” said older women who have led heterosexual lives are choosing same-sex partners because men their age are chasing younger women. “All the older men are going for younger women, leaving […]

Sex, More or Less

May 16, 2010


AARP just came out with a 105-page sex survey of people 45 and older. The report is titled, “Sex, Romance, and Relationships: AARP Survey of Midlife and Older Adults.” The Washington Post has kindly reduced the 105 pages to a very short article. This is really handy, since, unless 100 of the 105 pages of […]
