IT'S a common belief that older couples have less sex - but one elderly pair are challenging this stereotype, by making a porn movie. John and Dr Annie Campbell - who are both in their 70s - are experts on sex and met six years ago on a dating website called Spiritual Singles. Together with film director Erika Lust, they're trying to prove that sex doesn't stop as you get older by making a movie called "Soul Sex". They explain that "soul sex" is a slower and more intimate form of intercourse with no goals or expectations.

Sexual activity is an essential part of intimate relationships, though it tends to decline as people get older. But although research shows that frequency of sexual activity can decrease with age, for many older people, sex still remains an important part of their life. Women were found to be less sexually active as they aged, but studies show that, just like men, many women also want to continue to have sex as they get older. Studies in the US report similar levels of sexual activity across these age groups.

Many people want and need to be close to others as they grow older. For some, this includes the desire to continue an active, satisfying sex life. With aging, that may mean adapting sexual activity to accommodate physical, health, and other changes. There are many different ways to have sex and be intimate—alone or with a partner.
As you age, sex isn't the same as it was in your 20s — but it can still be satisfying. Contrary to common myths, sex isn't just for the young. Many seniors continue to enjoy their sexuality into their 80s and beyond. A healthy sex life not only is fulfilling, but also is good for other aspects of your life, including your physical health and self-esteem.
