In its March 2013 issue, AARP Magazine presents “Sex at 50+: What’s Normal?” in which they answer our burning curiosity about other people’s sex lives. A heads up (in a manner of speaking): If you routinely incorporate the Area 51 Love Doll, the Strict Leather Dildo Face Harness, or the Drilldo into your sexual repertoire, […]

March 5, 2013

On January 7, 2011, I posted a piece titled “The Myth of Older Men Wanting Younger Women.” I said that, in spite of the common belief that all older men are chasing after younger women, my experience has been otherwise. The response was instant and strong. On both sides of the aisle. On February 28, […]

February 27, 2013

    My Sex and the Sixty-Year-Old posts got the attention of eHarmony Canada, who requested equal time.  I’m happy to give it because, in spite of what I write about Susan’s misadventures in the dating world, I believe that online dating works.  I, along with countless other formerly single people, found love online.  I’m also […]

Time on My Mind

February 25, 2013

47

It is commonly acknowledged that an hour spent in the dentist’s chair is not equal to an hour spent watching football.  An hour spent on the phone with technical support is not equal to an hour spent at a great sale where everything fits you perfectly and you have mysteriously gone down two sizes (Forget […]

It’s believed that humans originated about 200,000 years ago in the Middle Paleolithic period.  According to Wikipedia, they began to experience “full behavioral modernity” about 50,000 years ago. Susan, in joining a new dating site, has apparently discovered a pool of Homo Sapiens Sapiens who managed to avoid the shift to full behavioral modernity.  Fortunately, I’m […]

Peg Schulte, the author of Peg-o-Legs Ramblings, describes herself as “an insurance agent, married, and mother of 2 college students who engages “in the struggles of daily life in a small town in Illinois” and who writes about “daily life from the Everywoman perspective.” I would describe her slightly differently: Peg is a woman who […]

Sex and the Sixty (Year Old): eSmarmony

January 15, 2013

In an effort to stay off the online dating sites, my friend Susan decided to sell her condo, move into an apartment, furnish the entire apartment, and start hosting dinner parties.  After awhile, though, she ran out of spaces to decorate and got sick of eating leftover salmon.  She was forced to go revisit the […]
