Ah, Modern Love: the New York Times' intellectualizing of chemicals that float between us. Many are awful, some are wonderful, and most are uncomfortable. Today's no different, as they answer an..age-old..question: are old people fucking?
Come on! You know you've wanted to know if your grandparents ever take the dentures out, put them on the nightstand, throw some Count Basie on the gramophone, and get bizz-ay with the sizz-ay. And you know you've always wanted to read something about it the started like this:

Woah. Stop it right there, GRANDMA. Is that an ass-doctor you're talking about in the lede? [Ed. No?] Let's get to the good stuff! Are. You. Sexually. Active? Let's see here, blah blah blah, friends joking about not getting laid, it's funny, ha ha, words words words, sharing the same urologist with your husband, blah blah blah, hmm. I don't see anything, ah, wait! We might have a winner...

Yes, We Do. Even at Our Age. [Modern Love]
