Sex and the Seniors

Monday night's Daily Show had a segment wherein Jason Jones traveled down to Florida to find out about senior citizens' sex lives. Here's the video, in case you missed it:

I found this video to be pretty interesting (although WTF is up with the sexual assault guy?), since I don't spend that much time thinking about how STDs affect seniors (and I bet you don't either). So I did a little digging around and found the full-length version of "Sex and the Seniors." Here it is:

And here is Part 2, which contains a poem:

Even though some elements of the video are a bit bizarre (the blond hair fixation being at the top of that list for me), I have to hand it to these folks for getting the word out about safer sex for seniors. Plus, the animation is awesome!

What do you think?

If you don't have a subscription to award-winning 80-page quarterly Bitch magazine, it's definitely time to start one. Image Map

on a related note!

...or somewhat related, my (young) grandmother runs an organization for senior citizens in my hometown. Recently, they had someone come in to give the seniors a sex ed lesson. Apparently, with more seniors living longer and being sexually active later in life, STD/STI rates are on the rise. I would assume that many of them grew up without the fear of HIV/AIDS or HPV, where STDs were something that could be treated with antibiotics.

Haven't got to watch those videos yet, will tell you what I think when I am not on my phone :)

You know, I LOVE those

You know, I LOVE those videos! It shows that old people still keep on living and flirting and dreaming!
-free condoms, protect yourself....
-she can't get pregnant what does she have to worry about...
-you know seniors will take everything that's free
=) That's funny!
