1. Do you think sex is less important after age 50? Why or why not?
I don’t think it’s less important – it might even be more important – after age 50. Sex isn’t just about procreation, it’s about connecting and bonding, and being close to someone you love (or lust after).

2. Were you ever squeamish about sex? At what age (or age range)?
Maybe when I was younger…probably the 12-16 age range. I don’t know if I’d really say squeamish, though.

3. When did you quit being squeamish and start to relax and enjoy sex?
I started enjoying it when I was young, obviously from my answer to #2. I think I really started to enjoy it, though, when I hit my late teens.

4. What is sex worth to you?
What’s it worth? That’s kind of a tough question. I guess it’s worth satisfaction, enjoyment, release, love, desire, and pleasure.

5. What do you seek in exchange for sex?
Happiness and contentment.

6. Is your sex life better or worse now vs. five years ago? Why?
Hmmm…in some ways better, and in some ways worse. I could probably chart the ups and downs, as it hasn’t been a steady, flat line. But, for the most part, better, and more varied.

7. Would you answer your mobile phone (a call or text) if it rang/dinged while you were having sex?
No. Over the past few years I might have, especially if it kept going off, as I’d be worried there was a problem with my parents. I might glance at the screen to see what the number was, but it’s not likely I’d pick up.

Bonus: What is the one thing you wish your love interest understood about you?
That I’m complicated and emotionally fragile, and there’s a delicate balance that I fight to maintain.
