Afternoon Delight (And then a nap!)

Since I am now in my fifties a bit of news out of Europe caught my eye and I thought you might find it interesting too!

It's sort of like a "seniors discount" for sex.

A brothel in Germany hopes to capitalize on the growing number of retirees by offering them a 50 percent discount for sex in the afternoon.

The "Pascha" in Cologne Germany has introduced reduced rates for clients aged 65 and above -- provided they can prove their age. "All clients need to do is show us some proof of age," said a spokesman for the brothel's managing director Armin Lobscheid.

(This is sort of ironic since we all start out in early adulthood by having to show I.D. and it seems we are ending up this way as well.)

Lobscheid went on to say,"A 'normal session' costs 50 euros with us -- and we're now paying 50 percent of that for these older guests because they are twice as easy to satisfy. We don't earn as much money, but we're establishing ourselves across a broader range of age groups," he added.

After testing the water with reductions for senior citizens once a week, the Pascha decided earlier this month to offer 50 percent off sex services between midday and 5 p.m every day.

"There's been plenty of demand and people have certainly been taking advantage of the offer," the spokesman said. "Older folks are more active than you would think."

"Life begins at 65!" it says in an advertisement for its "senior citizens afternoon" next to a picture of a motorcycle rider with a big grin on his face.

Now, I'm not saying I have ever gone to a brothel, (I haven't) but it is an indication of how our population is aging.

Thank God for Viagra, eh boys!

How wonderful to discover your lively blog and read this entertaining post! I've been on a mission to get us talking out loud about older-age sex, and I thank you for helping.

Some people may think paying for sex is wrong, but for those who accept the notion, I hope they'll also accept that the desire for sex stays with us and that people without a partner may want to hire someone.

What about older women who are yearning for sex, though -- does this brothel supply willing men for them?

I'm the author of Better Than I Ever Expected: Straight Talk about Sex After Sixty (Seal Press, 2006, http://www.joanprice.com/BetterThanExpected.htm), and continue to discuss this topic on my blog about sex and aging, http://www.betterthanieverexpected.blogspot.com.

I might excerpt part of this post on my blog, with your permission, and of course with credit and a return link. Let me know.

I hope you'll visit my blog and comment. We're discussing some interesting topics there!
