Retired and Looking at Pornography: Porn and the Elderly

It’s easy to think of grandma and grandpa as being wrinkled and old. Too old to enjoy or even think about sex. But, most older people will tell you that their minds are still active and they are actively thinking about sex.

For sure, the muscles may weaken and the bones may become stiff and painful, but the mind can imagine just about anything. And, there is no limitation to the thoughts and memories of the elderly.

Grandparents, just like teenagers think sex is just fine. And, in our modern society, many tech savvy grandparents are using the Internet for more than looking up recipes for clam chowder. Older people often turn to the Internet for companionship after their mate has passed away. And, just like young people, they can become addicted to Internet porn.

Grandpa on the Internet

Internet porn sites are easy to find and many are free to watch. And, older men, especially, are quick to take advantage of the variety of Internet porn available today.

Since many porn sites are free, they easily fall within the budget of older men on a pension or Social Security. These sites offer an ever changing variety that will attract the male brain.

From the male’s perspective, variety is the spice of life. The male becomes tired quickly after having sexual relations with a single female. Just like reading the same old girly magazine again and again is simply boring.

But, the Internet is an entirely different matter. A male will revive quickly when presented with a new female. This variety is what makes Internet porn sites so stimulating and addicting for males. A new scene with new actors is presented to keep male viewers excited and glued to the screen.

Grandpa can quickly become so addicted to pornography on the Internet that he neglects household duties, social obligations, and simply becomes secluded in his chair in front of the computer screen.

And, variety can mean viewing hardcore and violent porn on the paid sites. This can easily drain grandpa’s savings and suck up money he should be using for food, medicine and clothing.

Grandma on the Internet

Some grandmothers are attracted to porn sites designed for women. And, some sites designed for older women are available. But, perhaps, like many women, most tech savvy grandmothers like to talk. They can find lots of senior chat rooms online. And, many elderly widows use chat rooms to talk with men. After all, what else is there to do during the day than to get into interesting conversations with men of a similar age?

In the faceless, anonymous chat rooms people often disclose personal things beyond what they had disclosed to their spouse within their marriages. A strong bonding take place. Often the chats turn to the feelings of loneliness and need for companionship. And this can easily lead to talk about sex. And, most women prefer this to watching actual porn sites. Better than reading romance novels, talk with a real live person is often more exciting.

But, talk often leads to action. And, meeting “friends” made in chat rooms is a normal occurrence. Sometimes these meetings work out in a great relationship. But, no matter how much conversation you’ve had, you really don’t know who is on the other end of the conversation. You could be talking to a molester who is enticing you with words you want to hear.

Seniors Beware

While age should endow one with some wisdom, the Internet is often so new and novel that older people lose a sense of perspective. Just as young men and women can be attracted to the Internet with its social and sex sites, so can older people. The brain’s pleasure centers and neurotransmitters like dopamine and serotonin work the same and it’s equally easy to become addicted to sex on the Internet.
