Another reader has taken me to task for my neglect of solo sex in my posts. She wrote this as a comment on "10 Tips for Hot Sex after Sixty":
These are great ideas, but once again the presumption that “hot sex” is for couples only is very apparent.
I don’t think it’s very realistic or fair to imply that when we’re over 60 we’ll of course have, or necessarily even want, a partner. In fact it’s not realistic or fair to assume this about people of any age.
The article doesn’t specify whether the couple is a man and woman, or two people of the same gender, which is good. I think it would mean a lot to readers who don’t have partners if another article followed this one with hot tips for solo sex, emphasizing how good that can be too.
This article could more accurately be called “Hot Tips for Couples Over 60.” Then it wouldn’t be supporting the Western cultural misconception that good sex is only about pairs of humans.
OK, I'm working on my “Hot Solo Sex Tips for Singles Over 60” now. Stay tuned -- and feel free to contribute your own!
