AARP Says Seniors Are Sexting, Too

The line between amusing and creepy is thin. The AARP has reported that increasingly, seniors are using their cellphones to send sexy messages to one another. More surprising is the how-to list on the left side of the story.

AARP reported:

"More and more of the 50+ set, both single and married, are using text messaging to spice up their sex lives. Boomers, often sandwiched between teenagers, aging parents, and busy work schedules, are taking advantage of the new technology because it's fast, easy, and fun.

"Relationship coach Suzanne Blake has seen and heard it all when it comes to sexting, including a wife who enjoys sexting her husband while he's traveling on business, telling (and showing) him what he's missing at home. While this may surprise some, Blake's not surprised at all."
