New Survey Shows Seniors' Love Lives Going Strong

A recent survey from Revera Inc, one of Canada’s largest providers of care and services for seniors, shows that the rates of romantic partnership among seniors aged 75 and over is just as high as that in the 18-30 group surveyed. According to the Revera Report on Romance, “[…]seven-in-ten Canadian seniors say love and romance remains an important aspect of their lives and 88 per cent agree that companionship is something they couldn’t do without.”

Gerontologist Amy D'Aprix, an adviser for the company, credits stimulants such as Viagra as a likely factor in the survey’s findings and ventured that sex only gets better in one's senior years as a result of changes in hormone levels.
