Sexting a Growing Trend Among Senior Citizens
Roger isn't a teenager—or even a 20-something. He's a 59-year-old divorcé, and, thanks to his cell phone and a slew of sassy ladies, his love life is more interesting than ever, thanks to sexting.
Shocked? Don't be. More and more of the 50+ set, both single and married, are using text messaging to spice up their sex lives. Seniors are taking advantage of the new technology because it's fast, easy, and fun. "They want sexual activity," Blake explains. "They want to flirt. It makes them feel lively and young."
Jill, age 50, certainly feels fresh and vital when she sexts. "It makes you a little more brave," she says. "It takes the fear away, your inhibitions. I might be a little more bold in a text message than I would be over the phone or in person." Sexting also makes the South Carolina nurse, who's been divorced for 15 years and enjoys casual dating, feel as if she had a "naughty secret."
