Betty White Says You’re Never Too Old For Sex!

Betty White says there’s no such thing as being too old to enjoy sex.

“Does desire melt away with age? I’m waiting for that day to come,” the 88-year-old said in an interview with a US magazine aimed at the over-50s.

“Sexual desire is like aging. A lot of it is up here,” she added, pointing to her head.

The comeback queen, who is starring in a string of TV shows and movies, says her first marriage was purely phsyical. “I married my first husband because we wanted to sleep together,” she says. “It lasted six months and we were in bed for six months.”

While her second marriage was not a happy one, her third marriage to game show host Allen Ludden was a perfect match.

“He bought me a beautiful ring and I threw it back at him, so he wore it on a chain around his neck. He said, ‘I’m going to wear it until you put it on your finger.'”

They married in 1963 and stayed together until his death in 1981. “The secret to our marriage was enthusiasm,” White says. “When I knew Allen was coming home, I would freshen my makeup and put on a new blouse.”

And White says her sexual desire is as strong as it ever was. “I don’t have a fella,” she says, “but if Allen – or Robert Redford – were around, we’d have a very active sex life.”

Go Betty! Isn’t is refreshing to hear an older woman talking about sexual desire!
