Lately I've noticed a marked increase in the number of Viagra notices in my spam mailbox. Most of the spam I get is geared to seniors but I keep getting all this Viagra spam. Why? Are they selling more or just trying to sell more. My interest got peaked so I did some reaserch in sex - primarily senior sex.

To the utter horror of our children, today's seniors are pushing the sexual envelope in ways, some say, contrary to all that's right and holy. Used to be, by age 60, seniors were expected to hang it up, start acting their age, and prepare for the solemn business of departing this world.

No more. What with Viagra, Levitra and all the other Ra-Ra's now available, even nonagenarians are behaving much like hormone-crazed teenagers, blithely ignoring both old-fashioned shame and open-mouthed stares.

Consider this story out of London: Nine Oldsters Booted Out of Nursing Home For Trying to Have an Orgy!

Seems that a bunch of old goats, ranging in age from 73 to 98, schemed a secret sex party to celebrate the 90th birthday of one of the "girls." As a British newspaper reported, "The let-it-all-hang-out party took place just after midnight on October 28. The three wrinkly Romeos and six sagging seductresses gathered together in the rec room and stripped to the buff."

Well, you can imagine the staff's alarm and embarrassment when orderlies investigated rumba rumbling from the rec room. There, surrounded by candles and dressed in birthday suits slathered with baby oil, the horny nine were wing-dinging to lay canes in dusty corners.

"They hadn't got too far," a staffer was reported to say. "I guess it was taking some of the gents a while to started. But they were all naked. Believe me, it was the scariest thing I've ever seen."

Well, get used to it!

Gramps and grannies have been doing the wild thing since Adam and Eve were deep into their Golden Years. That old leech Methuselah was 187 years old when he fathered Lamech. And that was long before either Viagra or the Internet.

These days, old coots are turning on to the Web in more ways than one. It's but a click from Google to photo sites like "Old Tarts. The Secret Sex Lives of Old Women," "Old 'n' Horny," Gorgeous Grannies," "Hot Gummer Babes" and "Nasty Old Widows" One site opines, "Some guys just like their women aged like fine wine." To which another adds, "Grandma has been around the block and back again, aged to perfection."

Science backs this up.

According to a recent Janus Report, "Seventy-four percent of women age 65 and older engaged weekly in sexual activity compared with 68 percent of women ages 18 to 26. And get this: Four of 10 old biddies claim they'd like to have sex even more often.

Wow! Kind of makes you regret that you wasted all those years being young, doesn't it?

But here's the dirty little secret: What older women want, men can't deliver! At least that's what the experts at SeniorSite believe. A global survey of 27,780 aged 40 to 80 from 30 countries found aging women become sexually dysfunctional at half the rate of men.

But isn't that why God created Viagra?

And, yes, coffee. The Archives of Internal Medicine tells us that drinking a cup of java translates into "a higher rate of sexual activity in elderly women and a decreased prevalence of impotency among elderly men." No one knows why. Some speculate that the brew promotes more liberal behavior.

Whatever, coffee can't hurt.

Even if it's only because it keeps you awake longer, have a cup of coffee tonight before turning in with your creaky better half. May be just what you need to get a leg up on the situation. Remember, though, if you encounter an erection lasting four hours or more, don't blame me.

And next time you happen onto an orgy and need yet another cane, please don't call me. I'm trying to cut back on caffeine.
