Desires for food and drink, warmth, human interaction, etc., are normal desires.
Our budding sexuality and the need to explore it comes right along with puberty and brings with it another desire; the desire for sexual satisfaction.
Women well past 60 discuss sexual desires openly with their friends, partners, and doctors and it is accepted as natural and normal.
Our European cousins accept the fact that sex is a natural part of life and take it for granted that their parents, and even grandparents, are indeed enjoying a sex life, as is their right.The idea that a woman of 55, 60, or older is still wanting and needing sex is nothing to be embarrassed about.(A little sidebar here: Society doesn't necessarily find it embarrassing that men in those age groups are still sexually active; women deserve equal treatment in that area.) Many changes occur in our lives as we age and certainly physical changes are a natural part of life.Sex is a hot topic and most American women are very open and honest about their sexuality.The normal aging process doesn't seem to impede sexual desire, either.
