Seniors are setting the record straight -- love and romance aren't just for the young. In fact seven in 10 seniors over the age of 75 say they're never too old for love. I can speak directly to finding love and sex after 60 because for me, aged 68 and closing in fast on 69, both have never been better. Trust me.
