Check out the results of the new AARP sex and romance survey, and see how your own love life stacks up.

Among Americans aged 45 and older, about…

  • 54% are married
  • 5% aren’t married but are in a committed relationship
  • 30% are single (widowed, divorced, or never married) but aren’t dating
  • 10% are single and are actively dating—meaning they have a current or recent sex partner. People in this group were among the happiest in the survey.
  • 1 in 5 say they’re looking for a person to date.
  • 29% would describe their partner as “imaginative about sex.”
  • 46% are they’re less satisfied with their sex life than they were a decade ago.
  • 64% have never discussed their sexual fantasies with their partners.
  • 8% of men and 2% of women have a same-sex partner.
  • 1 in 5 women in their 50s say they’d be quite happy to never have sex again. About 1 in 50 men in their 50s agree.
  • 30% of men say they have some degree erectile dysfunction (E.D.). About 23% say they’ve been officially diagnosed with E.D. or impotence (which has increased by 6% since 2004).
  • 60% of men aged 45-59 rated their sexual relationship as “extremely pleasurable,” but only 41% of women in this age group agree. They were almost four times more likely as men to rate their sexual relationship as “not pleasurable at all.”
  • 29% of men want their partners to initiate sex more often.
  • 20% of men and 12% of women have oral sex at least once a week.
  • 45% of men and 8% of women say they think of sex at least once a day.

    Who are these people … I am amazed they’d never want sex again and how little they think of it. I think most people don’t honestly admit how often they think about sex. Either that or that’s what’s on MY mind a lot.
