Original Starting post for this thread:
For older swingers, age is an issue. Since we are at the upper end of those participating in the lifestyle, we decided to look into the matter. A few years ago we looked at the preferred age bracket among the seventy-nine SLS couples we had as friends. It is clearly not a random sample simply because we selected them as friends for one reason or another and not for age, however, we tend to stick with folks over fifty. We compiled the data and this is what we found.

The average age of the men was 55.6, and for women of the couple, 54.0. The age range for men was 48 to 69; for women it was 48 to 65. In summarizing the age preferences of this group, we took the average age of the couples, 55, and the average of the lower and higher age limits. What we found was that was low end was 17.4 years younger that they were (about 37) and the high end was 8.3 years older than they were when they specified a limit (about 63) - a definite bias toward youth. Data for the high end was inconclusive because ten couples used an upper limit of 99 which a couple we met told us that it meant that there was no upper age limit.

None of this should be surprising since it is well known that sexual vigor, if not the desire, tends to diminish with age. Accordingly, those interested in sex with others will seek out those in whom the juices are still in full flow. A closer look at our sample reveals some subsets with differing outlooks.

There are ten couples who have no upper age limit. For two couples, the low end of the bracket is a 21, which means that the age of their partners is irrelevant. For other it varies from a few years younger than they to quite a bit younger.

The majority of the couples favor ages about 15 years younger to about 10 years older - a reasonable range.

Ten couples like to have partners who are anywhere from about 12 to 26 years younger than they are, but limit the upside to couples less than five years older than themselves. We are bemused by these folks who are willing to mix it up with a much younger crowd, but don't entertain folks much older than themselves. We think this is reflective of an inflated ego that would not be of interest to us.

As the lifestyle community expands, we feel there is a place for older swingers that is presently lacking. We do all we can to demonstrate that sex is rejuvenating and invigorating. Our experience is that it is the older women who retain their enthusiasm, interest and sexual capability well into their sixties and seventies. The pharmaceutical industry has come to the aid of the men who would otherwise have called it quits.

Although many swingers may think that they are God's gift to those younger than themselves, the elders among us can demonstrate what is in store for younger folks as they age. We will make optimists of you. Give older swingers a try.

We have limits in place because we know we have nothing in common with those much younger.

We also have seen a bias toward younger partners, and we feel very strongly that it just reflects a sociocultural model that is outdated. "Senior" is a descriptive term originally applied to a group that was in significantly poorer health and physical condition than the general population due to aging. At one time this label could be applied to most people even in their early 50's, but this is just no longer the case.

Nowadays, few healthy and fit people of either sex have experienced much decline in health, stamina, or appearance until late into their 60's, often until into their 70's.

My grandparents were "senior" before the were 60; my parents, their 70's. We have friends that are competitive athletes. We see nothing on the horizon that is likely to slow us down for many, many years, and resent the cultural bias that views us as less desirable relative to another partner based on little more than our biological age.

Either of us would rather have 1 60 year old than, 3 20 year olds. We know how to get it done and what needs done to do it again.

We generally prefer couples as close to our age as is practical mostly because we have more in common with people who have similar cultural experience. We also tend to like those a bit younger because we have young children even though we're in our forties. We can and have had fun with those much older but our more lasting friendships have been with those within a 10 year range one way or the other. Christy tends to like younger guys I prefer my age or older in woman so we just need to find a couple with a 30 year old guy and a 60 year old wife.

We don't like playing, including single guys, any younger than 45!! Just too weird, and we usually don't have anything in common with the younger crowd.

HI

Lets try again, hit the wrong key and the prior message got sent or lost.

I am over 60, 150 lbs, 5' 9", slim and athletic, look like 50ish with salt and pepper full head of hair, shaved below, std free, well endowed at 7.5 " and the women say I know how to use my equipment better than most. Yet, there appears to be a barrier in the minds of singles and couples under age 50 that an older male is not desireable. I understand where they may be a basis for this prejudice since most men are over weight, over bearing in attitude, not good conversationalist, and perhaps somewhat insecure. I am none of those things and well educated. I am frustrated because I do not know how to encourage the younger singles and couples to reconsider and imaging slow hands, passion, patience, foreplay is great and post coital bliss is for cuddling. I am here ladies and couples, contact me.
