Sexuality and ageing in a nursing home?

Below is an excerpt from a very good article: CLICK HERE to read more.

Nursing home residents often share rooms and have very little privacy. Sexual expression is not an easy thing to manage in such an environment. As long as nobody was forced to sit in the rec room against their will, I think it’s worth applauding the courage of these residents for finding a way to have a little celebration of sexuality collectively and safely, since privacy is so rare.

The issue of consent is, of course, a complicated and important one in facilities where judging mental competence is a complex matter. There were times when I thought my mother’s mind was clear and lucid, and other times when it was not. The bright legal line between competent and incompetent is, in lived experience, really a fuzzy and often shifting boundary. I don’t think that means we should deny the elderly, even in nursing homes, opportunities for erotic expression or entertainment.

Someone asked us:

This will sound silly, but I want to have better sex with my boyfriend. Sometimes I hurt inside, like he’s pushing too far in. I mean, I like having sex, I just hate that feeling. What is going on and is there anything I can do to make it better?

It is definitely NOT…

I get this question lots and lots. This is a great response from Planned Parenthood

Every Sexual Health Agency Should Get This Sort of Feedback

valhallalagoon:

Planned Parenthood, can I sing your praises for a minute? Because a few days ago, you gave this scared lil’ transguy a great new IUD. This was my first experience with Planned Parenthood and while I’d always been a supporter of what you guys do, I absolutely love you all even…
