I was encouraged a few months ago to write an article on intimacy within the older generation. I had given the intimacy subject some thought when GreyFeathers first began, but thought against it because it seemed that no one ever talked about it. Like menopause. Why is this subject as taboo as menopause? Do people think just because one ages that one is no longer interested in sex or intimacy? Or do they think (whoever “they” are) if you’re “old” you just stop because you’re no longer vital? Or maybe parts aren’t working as they once did so that makes you stop? Or maybe intimacy conversation is only spoken with the under 50 crowd? I found many couples who were very open sharing about their lives and views on intimacy.
