My life in sex: ‘Sexual activity at our age can seem like a pilates class’

The long-term monogamist

It was 50 years ago this summer that we first had sex together – in a tent in Cornwall – and it is still something we enjoy. Monogamy suits us.

We don’t make love so often these days – three to four times a month compared with three to four times a week in our heyday – but our sex life has matured as we have. As students, we could, and did, do it in the back of a Mini; the physical side of sex is now less carefree.
