Which is why it’s so frustrating that there hasn’t been a whole lot of “doing” going on in your own lately.
Listen, things naturally slow down as we age. We don’t move as quickly as we once did. And why should we? We’ve earned the right to mosey along and smell the roses.
And when it comes to sex things often slow down a bit too. Which, despite what the under-40s think, is actually a good thing. Replacing frantic, fumbling quickies with leisurely lovemaking sessions is the best-kept secret of becoming a senior. (Shh. I won’t tell them if you don’t.)
