Older women sex dating
In previous generations, there was a strongly held belief that women lose interest in sex after menopause.
This belief does not appear to persist today, as revealed by data from recent studies.
More often than not, sexually active single older adults who are dating are not using condoms.
In fact, among female respondents fitting this category in the 2009 AARP survey, only 32% reported using condoms regularly.
The survey results reflected a trend toward more open attitudes about sex than in the two previous surveys of 19.
These women graduated from high school before 1980, when comprehensive sex education became common.
However, women aged 50 or older today differ from women of previous generations with respect to both their attitudes toward sexuality and the availability of sexual partners as they age.
An increasing number of single women in the 50 age bracket are dating and seeking romantic sexual partners.
These older adults are more likely to be diagnosed with HIV later in the course of their disease, usually because they are unaware of risk factors.
For women, the major risk factor is having sex with a man infected with HIV, which accounted for 86% of new HIV cases in women in 2015.
