I don’t put a lot of stock in Hollywood’s idea of real life.
What ends up on the big screen isn’t really reflective of what I see around me.
And I’m not talking about Tom Cruise hanging by his fingertips on the side of a jetliner.
How those of us over 60 are portrayed on TV and in the movies can be a bit insulting.
It certainly spreads the myth that once you hit 65, you’re no longer interested in romance, or physical intimacy.
But a recent poll conducted by AARP has a much different impression of “seniors.”
The big takeaway: “The need for and interest in sexual intimacy doesn’t stop at a certain age.”
More than 3 out of 4 in the survey believe it’s important for a romantic relationship no matter what your age.
Way more than half of these folks 65-80 are still quite interested in sex. And more than half see it as way of improving your quality of life.
This is all very encouraging.
Because it’s important for your physical health, as well as your emotional state of mind. (I’ll get more into the physical part tomorrow…).
But there’s a couple things I read here that were troubling.
Good health is obviously tied closely to staying intimate. Twice as many of those in “good” health are sexually active as those that aren’t.
So there’s another reason to eat right and get your body moving each day, right?
There’s another area that needs improving too – our willingness to talk about sexual health. Because nearly 20% said they would not talk to anyone about it, no matter the circumstances.
I do get it. It’s not something we talk about in “polite company.” It’s about as personal as it gets. And if you’re having trouble, it can be embarrassing to say the least.
It’s not surprising I guess that it’s men especially that clam up on the subject. While we’ve come a long way thanks to brave (and well compensated) spokespeople like Bob Dole opening up about issues, we still have a way to go.
Fortunately, some of my customers are brave enough to step forward, raise their hands and say they’d appreciate some help… and then they’re willing to share their stories about it.
Stories about how well Ultimate Male works can sometimes be a little personal.
So I’m grateful to men like Clarence who told me “I’ve noticed an increase in my testosterone levels. I’ve also noticed increased energy, and everything is working well in ‘that’ area.”
Sam from Texas also used the same “code words” – but I think you’ll understand…
“I am almost 70 years old. Since taking Ultimate Male, I’ve noticed I have more energy, and have noticed progress in that ‘area.’ I plan to order it again.”
Code words, hand signals, put it in a song if you want. But I encourage you to speak more openly about this area of your life.
With your spouse. Your doctor. And if you have a success story for me that you’d be willing to share… I’m sure it would help other folks out there too.

P.S. I certainly hope I don’t have to stop for directions somewhere and they tell me to turn left to get to “that area.” Because lately that only means one place…
At least, when it comes to customer stories.
Patrick writes… “I am 61 years old and heard about your company through ‘American Rifleman.’ The Ultimate Male has really helped me.
I am a smoker, and smoking can affect ‘that area.’ But Ultimate Male has really worked for me. I want to let others know how it has been helping me.”
Thanks for sharing. But do try to quit the cigarettes, Patrick. I want patriots like you around for the long haul.
