Empress on the Mount

Dear Empress:
I keep reading that sex keeps you young and that some women in their 70s are still doing the nasty several times a week. I'm 69 and after a night of hearing my dh cough, snore and fart in his sleep, the last thing I want to do is touch him--even if he could get it up. Don't get me wrong. I still love the old bastard and he loves me. We do things like working in the garden and reading to each other. He says he's willing to try Viagra if I really want him to, but the truth is, I'm content just to hang out with him and enjoy his company in other ways. Is there something wrong with us?
--Over It

Wrong with you? Hardly. It sounds like you and your husband are happy the way you are. So don’t let a multibillion dollar pharmaceutical company tell you differently. If you get a sudden urge to wade through the coughs and farts and bonk like bunnies, then go for it. Otherwise, spend your money on plants, not pills.
