50 or above? Think Paris if you’re a woman …

If you’re a woman in your 50s who’d still like to have sex, you might want to consider Paris … Anyway that’s what Pamela Druckerman suggests in her Washington Post story, ” French Women Don’t Get Fat and Do Get Lucky.” And I quote:

“… the latest[U.S] national statistics show that by our 50s, a third of us haven’t had sex in the last year. By our 60s, nearly half have gone sexless in the previous year. Once we hit our 70s, most of us might well hang up an “out of business” sign …”

“But not in France … Just 15 percent of Frenchwomen in their 50s and 27 percent in their 60s haven’t had any sex in the past year, according to a 2004 national survay by France’s Regional Health Observatory. Another national survey being released next month will report that cohabiting Frenchwomen over 50 are having more sex now than they did in the early 1990s.”

“When [French] people have multiple partners, they have stable partners, and not one-night stands. This is not the case in the U.S.” says the French researcher Alain Giami, who co-authored a paper on French and American Sexual habits.

“Older women inParis don’t actually look any better than the ones in New York. The difference is that the French typically don’t see sex as a privilege for the young and beautiful. They see it as one of life’s most basic pleasures …”

So ladies, read this article and you might think about going to Paris for more than the museums and the shopping …
