STD Rates are Up for Older People Because of 50 Shades of Gray?!
If imagining your parents having sex is gross, then cover your ears and eyes because single Grams and Gramps are getting theirs too! To make things more interesting, Dr. Charlotte Jones in England claims that the book and movie, "50 Shades of Grey", have inspired a bit more risky business and it has led to a big increase in S.T.D.'s among the older age group. With the risk of pregnancy gone, this generation doesn't think of using a condom, so the cases of chlamydia, syphilis and HIV have boomed among baby boomers. Remember that these are the people who ushered in the sexual revolution! Now they have viagra and are sexually active for much longer. No pun intended. Medicare is now offering free STD screenings for seniors because the problem is so real. Unfortunately, only about 5% of eligible lovers are utilizing it!
It's time to have "The Talk" with Nanna.
