Other women may well enjoy sex itself in older age, but one practicality is consistently ignored: you need a partner for an active sex life and you don’t find them putting out the milk bottles, as I discovered when widowed at 46.
I look back on my younger years and feel very fortunate for my share of wonderful lovers — yet no desire to become one of those sad, older women trying to replicate those days by pubbing, clubbing or trawling beaches in Gambia.
