Man Alive Tonight's the Night

Man Alive Tonight's the Night

Humans are sexual beings from birth to death, but the ways in which sexuality is expressed may change with age. Man Alive talks to three couples about sex after 60 in a revealing portrait of love, romance and the need for companionship in elderly people. A nursing home director attests to the fact the elderly are flirtatious with each other (nursing homes are required by law to have privacy rooms for people). Octogenarian newlyweds discuss their medically assisted sex life, and a co-habitating Scottish couple is content being non-sexual companions because what matters for them is taking care of and being good to each other.
