Baby Boomer Sex Poll

A sex poll taken among a thousand people born between 1946 and 1964 yielded some interesting results. Currently, there are about 85 million baby boomers in North America, which is about 28 percent of the adult population. About 30 percent of those 85 million are unmarried.

Forty-six percent said they were enjoying sex more now than they did in their 20s and 30s. Personally, I don't think my sex life is better than it was then, but it's certainly just as good.

34 percent would have sex on a first date compared with 17 percent of singles in "Generation X": those born between 1965 and 1982. I've had more first dates with sex than without.

25 percent were open to engaging in a threesome. I'm not just open to it, I've been there, done that, and gotten the t-shirt.

These results are rather unsurprising because baby boomers grew up and came of age during the midst of the sexual revolution, feminism, and the push for gay rights.

More survey results indicated that 47 percent of single boomers were looking for companionship, while 19 percent were seeking a sex partner.

30 percent were looking for a serious relationship, while 33 percent were looking for casual ones.

Only 10 percent were looking to get married, compared to 60 of those aged 30 to 39.

Baby boomers -- let's hear from you. I'd be curious to read what other generations think as well.

I think I'm too traditional to be a Baby Boomer. I must be younger than I think! LOL!

Married at 23, still married to the same man, two kids. I have to say, though, sex is better now than in my teens. Do I get a tee shirt too?
