Cast your mind back to the last time you watched — with whatever level of arousal or discomfort — a sex scene that depicted individuals anything other than young, firm and athletic.
The truth is that there are few representations of this kind. The campaign to which she is referring was shot by British photographer Rankin, who has collaborated with Relate to shoot a series of black and white photos, depicting a range of couples and a single woman, all engaged in various moments of sexuality, vulnerability and intimacy.
According to research undertaken by 3Gem market research, there is a huge gap between how older people say they are represented in the media and how younger people perceive themselves to be: an astounding 67 per cent of over 65s say that sex and intimacy for their age group is rarely or never represented in media, compared with 20 per cent of year olds. Why is this the case, though?
Equally, why should the individuals in that age group feel uncomfortable about the realities of their own sexuality? Honesty and communication are, according to Thorne, key in any relationship. By extension, it makes sense that talking about sex and intimacy - outside of the act itself - will further bolster confidence and trust: not only where people in that older age group are concerned, but also those for whom the prospect of getting older might be plagued with premature inklings of loss — loss of attractiveness, of desire and additionally, she says, of ability.
