sexually active

  1. Older women still want sex

    Too old for sex??? No such thing -- yet that's what seniors are told every day, especially women.

    Let me tell you something ladies: If you've got the desire, the ability and a partner, stop reading now and get to work -- you've got some catching up to do. Because a new study confirms that even women in their 80s can still have sex AND enjoy every minute of it.

    In the new study, more than 800 women spilled their sexual secrets. The average age was 67, but the study included women in their 40s as well as women in their 80s.

    And guess what? Those women in their 80s may have had sex less frequently -- but when they did get busy, they were able to reach orgasm every bit as frequently as the youngest women in the study.

    But here's where it gets interesting: 83 percent of the younger women were sexually active, versus just 13 percent of the oldest... yet only 25 percent of the youngsters said they were "very satisfied," compared to nearly half of the oldest.

    In other words, it's not the frequency -- it's the quality... and if you're up there in years, there's nothing keeping you from some quality sex even if you're not "doing it" as often as you used to.

    In fact, fully half of the oldest women in the study said they had no problems with the basics, including arousal and lubrication. But if you're a vibrant, sexually active 80-something, I'm not telling you anything you don't already know.

    For the rest of you, what are you waiting for?

  2. Ibuprofen linked to miscarriage

    Over-the-counter painkillers end lives -- a tragic reality that the FDA outrageously refuses to recognize.

    No matter how many people die, you can bet they'll do practically nothing to limit the easy access to painkillers.

    Now, a new study finds that some of the most common of these meds -- nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen -- can cut lives short before they even begin, boosting the miscarriage rate by a stunning 240 percent.

    Canadian researchers say data on some 50,000 pregnant women found that those who gobble down these meds during pregnancy lose their babies 36 percent of the time -- while those who skip the drugs have a 15 percent miscarriage rate.

    The problem here isn't just the sky-high miscarriage risk -- it's that the risk is always highest during the first trimester. And ladies, you know the deal -- you don't always know right away if you're pregnant.

    If you're a sexually active woman of baby-making age, you could be in the first trimester at any given time and not even know it.

    What I'm getting at here, if it's not obvious, is that women should avoid NSAIDs like ibuprofen even if they're only thinking about pregnancy -- because it's never too early to give 'em up... and there's always a possibility you'll be too late.

    If that's not enough risk for you and your family, another recent study finds that NSAIDs can boost the risk of kidney cancer in men and women alike by 50 percent.

    Throw in some of the other risks I've told you about lately -- these meds can up the odds of stroke, heart attack and an early death -- and you don't have a painkiller anymore. You've got a people-killer.

  3. Seniors still sizzling in the sack

    In what's dramatically being called the most comprehensive sex study ever among the older population, researchers were shocked to discover that senior citizens do more than their fare share of hanky panky.
  4. TV causes rise in teen pregnancy rates

    A new study suggests that teen pregnancy rates are actually higher among teens who regularly watch shows with overtly sexual dialogue and risqué situations.
