Jane Fonda's latest revelation about her sex life
It seems Jane Fonda has never been shy to speak her mind and discuss sensitive topics. The actress is 80 now, and she has spoken openly about her sex life in recent years, saying "I have never had such a fulfilling sex life" at age 74. And now, in her ninth decade of life, she announced she is not sexually active anymore. Fonda told news program Extra she has "closed up shop down there".
Interestingly, the actress made the revelation at the premiere of her latest movie, Book Club. The movie, which also stars Diane Keaton, Candice Bergen, and Mary Steenburgen, is about four older women's renewed interest in sex after reading Fifty Shades of Grey. Jane Fonda told Extra about the movie:
It's about very important things: friendship and sex. And that it's OK for older women to have both.
The actress also said she isn't dating anymore. She had been dating record producer Richard Perry since 2009, but the relationship ended in 2017.

Younger people may freak out at the thought of their grandparents having sex. But, according to a recent survey, for many people, sex life doesn't end after they hit 70 and even 80. According to the survey, 54% of men and 31% of women over age 70 remain sexually active. Dr. David Lee, co-author of the report, cites unsurprisingly lower figures for octogenarians: 10% of women aged 85 and older and less than 25% of men aged 80 and older still have a sex life. Here's another interesting finding: those from the older age group who still have sex also describe their sex life as more satisfactory.
But even when sex life is over, there are other ways to maintain an intimate relationship with your partner. Simply kissing and cuddling causes a surge of happiness hormones, and that can keep you healthier and make your life longer. Love each other and be happy!
