Happy Valentine's Day!

According to today's New York Times "Older folks are friskier than ever, and it’s never too late to learn about safe sex." Holla!

This article is amazing, on several levels, but most especially for the priceless quotes:

"As the teacher, Monique Binford, delved into an unexpurgated discussion covering issues from vaginal dryness to Viagra, one student's cane clattered to the floor, another student adjusted his hearing aid and a third fidgeted in her orthopedic shoes."

When talking about condoms:

Bella Cohen, an 89-year-old widow in the front row, scoffed, "Oh yeah, by the thousands." Then, she inquired: "We can only use it if we have intercourse?"

Ms. Binford replied, "We can talk later if you're thinking of other uses."

And finally:

“I came in thinking that sex is the furthest thing from my mind, it’s just not important anymore,” Mrs. Cohen added. “But, you know, we’re not dead. There’s still a chance to learn.”

Ain't that the truth Mrs. Cohen. You go girl!
