Just seen in the Radio Times that Channel Five is "Profiling two american men who enjoy sexual relations with much older women . . . of 77 . . . and 92 . .."

I wonder whether anyone we know will be in this?

When I was 22, I worked in an office which had a tea lady, who doubled as the cleaner. She was much older than anyone else in the building, possibly almost as old as I am now (smile] and a real joy, genuinely liked by all. One morning a group of us young women were talking about sex, and she commented "oh no, I'd rather have a nice cup of tea any day"

Well, it would depend on whether or not I fancied him ... he may not be up to my exacting standards grin

It takes all sorts, doesn't it. I suppose there's nothing wrong, really, it's just not the norm. Also we don't tend to see ourselves as attractive anymore after a while.

I didn't watch it but it sounds like a programme shown on CH4 last year, about "escort grannies". There was quite a bit about it in the press at the time. I wonder what our children or grandchildren would think if it were us with a very young man Good luck to them if it makes them happy, it takes all sorts!

Ana Tue 31-Mar-15 23:08:13

Yes, that's right - 'My Granny the Escort'! I'm sure we had a discussion about that programme at the time.

I suppose the difference is that that programme focussed on what the older women wanted, whereas this one seems to be primarily about what the young men want.

I am not interested in other people's sexual relationships. I have no problem if older women and younger men are having a fabulous time in bed – but I don't want to know about it. (I don't want to know if older men and younger women or contemporaries are having a glorious sex life either.) If it is so enjoyable a) why have they got to talk about it and b) why have they got to talk about it on television?

I saw a bit of it. I couldn't make my mind up whether the young men were genuine or gigolos. That said the old ladies were having a wild time.

I posted my own thoughts using the "Television & Radio" subject.

#loveislove We all find different things attractive and have preferences - blonde hair, dark skin, short, big bums! Young or old, as long as you love and respect your partner who cares! Personally, the older i get the more confident i get especially when it comes to my sex life and i know most of my friends feel the same. I like to keep some fire in my love life and in fact I have just bought this for a 'romantic' weekend away, cant wait!
