Laten we seks praten

Telling personal, pure, loving stories.

It’s a common thought: oh, those old folks stopped having sex long ago. But is that really true, or are we just trying to look away? There’s not much attention paid to elder sexual health, even though intimacy is a major contributor to wellbeing and happiness in ageing. Not having an outlet to talk about subjects like these will lead to loneliness or even depression.

Aiming to break this taboo, Dutch broadcaster BNN/VARA is collaborating with Nationaal Ouderenfonds to set up an online platform. The goal is bring people together: it’s a place for retirees to identify with each other, to hear, read and share stories together, and to get the opportunity to discuss sex.
