There are also a whole bunch of us of all ages that cringe at the thought of older people, parents etc having sex or using sex toys. Putting it plainly the human race would not exist, you would not exist is your parents, if older people didn’t have sex (FYI, yes we know some of us came to be thanks to the wonders of science and IVF but we are pretty sure that your parent(s) were having sex even if they need a little extra help having a baby.
