According to the survey, which was conducted over a period of four weeks, many of the older adults were confused by the term, with some believing it to be a reference to the year 1969 and others thinking it had something to do with the number of inches your bed should be away from the door.
One respondent, a 72-year-old retiree named Dorthy Woods, said “I had no idea what that number meant. I thought it was just some kind of code for something.” Another, a 71-year-old grandmother who wished to remain anonymous, was shocked to learn the true meaning, saying “I had no idea it had anything to do with the genitals and whatnot.”
The survey also found that many older adults were not aware of other common sexual terms and practices. For example, when asked about the “missionary position,” many thought it had something to do with religious missions. Similarly, when asked about “doggy style,” some thought it was a reference to clothing for pets.
The survey has sparked a heated debate among older adults, with some calling for more education on the topic and others demanding that the number 69 be banned from all forms of media. One older adult, who also wished to remain anonymous, said “I think it’s a shame that older adults are being left in the dark when it comes to sexual knowledge. It’s important for us to stay informed and educated, especially in today’s society.”
Many experts are calling for more comprehensive sex education programs for older adults, including in-person classes and workshops that cover a wide range of topics, from basic anatomy to more advanced techniques and practices.
In response to the survey results, a group of older adults have formed an organization called “Senior Sexperts” which aims to provide education and resources for older adults looking to learn more about sex and sexuality. The group has already gained a significant following, and they are planning to hold workshops and classes in various cities across the country.
As the survey results show, it is clear that older adults need to take charge of their sexual education and knowledge. With the help of organizations like Senior Sexperts, older adults can now look forward to a more informed and freaky sex life.
