Sex Over 50? Yes, Please, Says 'Real Housewives Of Atlanta' Mom (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

We all know your sex drive doesn't die as soon as you hit the big 5-0; research backs up the fact that people are still having sex well into their 80s. That point was driven home during an episode of "The Doctors," featuring two reality television stars.

"I feel like sex is just as sitimulating in my 60s as it was in my 30s," said Joyce Jones, mother of "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Kandi Burruss. "Is that normal?"

Definitely, the panel said. Despite older women having to deal with biological issues that may make having sex more difficult (dips in estrogen and vaginal dryness just to name a few), that doesn't mean they're still not interested in having sex with their partner. It's a matter of mind over body.

"You're comfortable in your own skin, you're comfortable asking for what you want," said sex and relationship expert Laura Berman. "Hormones and physical things aside, you have to feel good."
