In order to get the attention of the senior citizen communities across America (and specifically in Florida) a new PSA has come out that is turning a lot of heads. Why? It has old people getting down and dirty! Although it may make some people cringe to think that their grandparents might be having…sex, it does happen and STI rates have skyrocketed with seniors. For more on this, keep reading.

Sexually transmitted infections for seniors have skyrocketed.

 

An independent collective of professional sexuality educators, researchers, authors, trainers, counselors, and therapists have formed a group and website called SafeSex4Seniors.org. They are trying to get the message out to the elderly that although pregnancy isn’t a risk, sexually transmitted infections are.

In fact STI rates among the elderly are exploding, with over 19,000 cases of chlamydia in 2010 among the 45-to-64-year-old set compared with less than 7,000 in 2000. In Florida alone, STI’s have risen 71%!

 

Seniors have sex…get over it and get informed!

It’s hard to imagine that people on their 70′s and 80′s have the energy for sex, but they do, it’s good for them and it’s natural. In fact, I wrote an article about the high sex drives among female seniors not too long ago, click the link for that article on older women’s sex drives.

Just like you wouldn’t want your grandmother driving her car without her seatbelt on, you should also be concerned about her sexual health. Feel free to share this article with her, may you could also watch the PSA video below together and have a good laugh!
