Watch Some Adorable Senior Citizens Talk About Gay Sex

From the mouths of old people. Seniors say the darndest things. Seriously. There are so many needlepoint worthy quotes from this video of old people talking about gay sex.

The Geriatric Pink Panther Is The Purrrfect Retirement Activity

Ever wonder what’s really going on inside the senior center?

“Sunset Daze” Proves Old People Do Still Get It On

As evidenced by the amazingness that was “Jersey Shore,” when you take a group of semi-attractive, outgoing people, put them in a sun-drenched environment and add in loads of alcohol, crazy things happen—mainly lots of hook-ups, oodles of fights, and a seriously questionable hot tub. Apparently, the same is true whether we’re talking…

Rowland Fellows, 84, and Beth Ashley, 83, met when they were 13 and 12 years old, respectively, and their families were both vacationing in Five Islands, ME. Back then, they were friends, but Ashley had a major crush on Fellows.

Do Nursing Homes Make Sex Impossible?

No one wants to think about sweet ol’ Grams getting freaky with her new dude—but senior citizens still have a libido and, unfortunately, nursing homes make having a sex life nearly impossible, argued psychologist Ira Rosofsky in the L.A. Times today.

23 Marriages And Counting

I’m in my late 20s and can’t get a man to marry me, but maybe that’s because I’m much more selective than Linda Wolfe, a 68-year-old Indiana woman who has been married 23 times and wants to marry again. Wolfe holds the Guinness World Record as the most married woman in history. In 1957, whe…

Porn, Starring Grandpa

Competition is stiff in the porn industry (Get it? Stiff? Ha.), and specializing is really the way to go. Since most porn features strapping, young men and women, the niche that’s more open — and actually doing quite well in Japan — is that involving old people. The stars are balding or gray, their ski…

Yes, You Can!

Movies about real people are inspiring, but screenwriters and actors dilute their stories a bit by making them “Hollywood,” in my opinion. That’s why Young @ Heart is going to be amazing. It’s a documentary showing a real group of senior citizens who sing cool songs from Coldplay, The Clash, James Brown, and…
