How old before you stop having sex?

As I was reading Atizah's Hopelessly In love, I remembered a scene I saw at the local Marks and Spencer.

I took the escalator up to the second floor where the lingerie section was. It was during a Marks and Spencer sale and thus a lot of the lingerie was marked down. As I approached the lingerie section, I saw a very matured lady looking at some G strings and suspenders. At first I thought, "Wow sexynyer makcik ni dah kerepot pun pakai lacy underwear." (Wow what a racy old lady, even in her age she wears lacy underwear.)

Until I saw her pick up a lacy red suspenders. For those of you who don't know what suspenders are, there are those things one wears above one's underwear, to hold one's stokings up.

She held the suspenders in front of her nether region and tried to measure them agains her body. "George, what do you think of these? Do they fit me you think?" she said to her husband.

Young equally kerepot George came up to her and was actually accessing how the suspenders would look on her.

And there I was going to myself, "My eyes! Oh my eyes! Help! My eyes!" I nudged at Him, wandering if He too witnessed the scene that I was witnessing and He gave me a knowing smile.

And we walked away from them, before we burst out laughing too hard.

Perhaps I was harsh to think that ladies in their golden years no longer wear such racy sexy lacy underwears. But perhaps it is the culture that we have been brought up in.

Can you ever imagine nenek wearing a sexy lacy red underwear from Marks and Spencer? I am pretty sure if she did, someone would have commented something along the lines of, "Dah buang tebiat ke?"

But it was truly amazing to have witness that scene. Even in their age, the husband takes interest in the wife's sexy lacy red underwear. Are they still having sex? Erk! I don't really want to know!

Thanks Atizah for the posting. Brought the memories of the old couple looking at suspenders come flooding back.
