Has your ‘hotness’ expired?

Last week, we came across an interesting set of interviews on Vice, where a journalist hit the pavement asking older Australians if they thought people of their age were still hot.

Responses, as you could imagine, were varied, but most revolved around ‘hotness’ not being so important in later years. In fact, the consensus is that hotness starts to diminish between the ages of 30 and 50. Still, many rated other factors, such as manners, kindness, sense of humour and presentation as important.

We’ve written many articles about sex and ageing and have always been under the impression that sex is still an important part of ageing.

But we thought we’d ask you to set the record straight. So, in today’s Friday Flash Poll, we’re after your input about sex, attraction and what’s important to relationships in your later years.


And of course, we welcome your comments below!
