105-year-old virgin says no sex the key to long life

Quote:
Clara Meadmore, a retired secretary, who still has her own hair, teeth, and sharp wit, never had time for a family and lived alone until going into care.

She said: "I've always had lots of platonic friendships with men but never felt the need to go further than that or marry."

Miss Meadmore, who was born in Glasgow, and lived in Canada and New Zealand, before settling in Cornwall 40 years ago, also added that she had never had any interest in sex.

"I imagine there is a lot of hassle involved and I have always been busy doing other things," she said.

"When I was a girl you only had sex with your husband and I never married. I grew up in an era where little girls were to be seen and not heard so I had to learn to stand up for myself and earn my own living.

"Some men don't like that in a woman and before long I was too old to marry anyway."

@CalamityJane,
Well, who wants to get that old anyways, right?

@Foxfyre,
I wonder if she really knows what she missed out on?

@CalamityJane,
It's not only "wanting to become that old." It's about the intimacy of sex, and leaving a part of yourself in this world after you're gone.

Besides, it's "abnormal" not to have sex.

I think it's a little sad that someone has lived so long and has never known human intimacy and passion. It's not just sex that she has missed out on, but also romantic love.

I think along the same lines, and never would want to miss the experience
of making love, being intimate, and having just plain dirty sex. One hasn't
lived without it.

It may be a way to long life, but it isn't the only way.

@jespah,
Reminds me of the old joke...

You don't really live longer, it just feels like it.

@CalamityJane,
There are those who don't seem to need it. If they do not desire it then I don't think they are missing out on much. Part of the fulfillment is having a need met right?
