When Kansas State University sent researchers into nursing homes to find out how the topic of sex was being addressed, they initially found silence. "Nobody was talking about it; it was a really hush-hush subject," said Gayle Doll, director of the university's Center on Aging. "I guess it's hard enough for people to think about their parents having sex, let alone their grandparents."

In response, the researchers have produced seminars and training aids to encourage nursing home caregivers to discuss and accommodate sexual desires The effort brings Kansas into a national discussion that advocates say will only grow as baby boomers age and take their beliefs about sexual freedom and civil rights into the nation's nursing homes.

Should sex be a topic discussed in every nursing home?

I guess no one wants to discuss it here on YT either.

Why should it matter whether sex is or is not discussed?

I mean, I don't see how talking about sex is any more important than talking about farts or indigestion.

Why should it or should it not be discussed? If people discuss it, fine. If they don't, okay. I don't think it's something we should put effort into to prevent or encourage.

Why? This isn't a high school, it's a nursing home. Do they even still have sex at that age anyway? Especially if they have to stay at a nursing home? If they do talk about it, the staff should be warning against it, because they could have a heart attack or fall out of bed and break a hip.

Sure, let them do it if they can, but it's not a topic that needs to be discussed. What's there to discuss about it? At that age, if you don't already know just about everything about sex, you'll never know.

who cares if they want to discuss it? is it hurting you? if old people wanna talk about getting in on, actually getting it on? who cares you aren't gonna be forced to talk about it with them nor will you be forced to watch the act if it so happens so who gives a flying sh*t if they wanna talk about it. when did sex become illegal for someone over 65 to talk about, I am a firm believer that you can say what ever you want its a free god damn country for christ sake!
