Whoa, even the old geezers are getting freaky these days!!
According to a new survey, one in three middle-aged people (over 50) sleep around. But that’s not all….a quarter of the age group cheat on their partner and one in six admitted to never using birth control or condoms with a new lover. Read the fully story below:
People over 50 are not staid and settled but are in fact among the most promiscuous of the population, according to a survey. The surprising statistics revealed a quarter of this age group cheat on their partner, while one in six said they never used contraception with a new lover.
The poll, from the Co-operative Pharmacy also found a third admitted they had ‘slept around’ and admitted to unprotected one night stands with strangers. The main reason people gave for not using contraception was that they ‘get carried away in the moment’. This is despite the fact that the number of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) in the overs 50s is soaring across the UK.
Natika Halil, director of information at the Family Planning Association (FPA), said: ‘The message is the same for teenagers as well as people in their 20s, 30s, 40s and 50s – don’t take a risk with your sexual health over the festive period. There is only one protection against most STIs – wearing a condom.’ The poll also found young people are less promiscuous than their elders were at the same age.
One in five teenagers said they had waited until the legal age of consent at 16 before having sex for the first time. This compared to one in 20 of those aged 20 or older. Pharmacist Lisa McCreesh, from the Co-operative, said: ‘Our research challenges the belief that teenagers are more promiscuous than older generations.
‘They unfairly get a bad name, while those in their 50s, who grew up in the 60s and 70s, are living up to the era’s carefree image as they take greater risks with their sexual health.’
Wow!!! Our grandparents are really gettin down like that?? SMH…
