‘Sex is better when you're 80'

Three women over 60 have spoken openly to BBC 5 live about their sex lives.

Speaking to Emma Barnett, Joyce 82, Shirley 61 and Dee 69 explained what sex is like as an older woman.

This comes after a new survey conducted for BBC Radio 5 live which suggests that one in five people in their 60s have sex several times a month.

The number stays relatively high even as people get older, with one in six people aged 70 or older claiming to have sex a few times a month or more.
