Online dating has made sex more accessible for men and women over But as well as offering the possibility of greater sexual fulfilment, the internet is also throwing up new challenges and dangers. In fact, 51 per cent of people over 60 told us they are sexually active and many describe enjoying a late sexual bloom. In exclusive research, Channel 4 News carried out in-depth interviews with 76 overs all over the country and polled another to find out about love, sex and relationships in what is fast becoming a new, old age.
