Sex and the Single Baby Boomer

Single baby boomers are enjoying better sex, are open to threesomes and are not looking to get married, according to a poll conducted by the online dating site Lavalife.

Forty-six percent of the 1,000 adults born between 1946 and 1964 who were questioned in the survey said they enjoyed sex more now than they did during their 20s and 30s.

The poll showed that 34 percent would have sex on a first date compared with 17 percent of singles in "generation X", or people born between 1965 and 1982.

Twenty-five percent of sexually active boomers were open to participating in a threesome.

The survey also found that 47 percent of single boomers were primarily looking for friendship, while 19 percent were seeking a sexual companion.

Only about 10 percent of those surveyed hoped to get married, compared with 60 percent of those aged 30 to 39.

There are an estimated 85 million baby boomers in North America, according to the American Association of Retired People (AARP), comprising nearly 28 percent of the adult population. About 30 percent of boomers are single.

Very interesting survey! I can honestly say that as a single baby boomer I'm much more interested in sex than I was in my 20's. I'm at the peak of my life! WOOHOO!
