Elderly women have normal romantic and sexual fantasies. Bodies age but dreams and feelings may remain forever young. That is every person's privilege at any age. Intimacy is a joy that has many levels, only one of which is sexual but all aspects are open to aware older women who refuse to be disenfranchised by our commercial emphasis on youth. Older women continue to care and to share, they also recognize the barriers to, the benefits of, and the lasting ways to attain closeness into late age.
