I'm a widow yet my son shames me for pleasuring myself | The Sun

DEAR DEIDRE: BEING an old age pensioner hasn’t quelled my appetite for porn or masturbation.

But when I’ve mentioned this to a good friend and my son they seem shocked and they’ve even told me I’ll damage my health.

I’m a 73-year-old widower. My wife died five years ago.

We always had a very active sex life.

Nobody will ever replace her, and I’m not looking to find love again. However, I do miss sex.

I now masturbate daily while watching porn. It brings me relief and satisfaction.

Is there anything wrong with this? Or am I’m going to do myself an injury?

The thought of giving up on physical pleasures forever really depresses me.

DEIDRE SAYS:  It is healthy to masturbate, however old you are.

It’s a good way to release sexual tension, relieve stress and, some research shows, to keep your prostate healthy too.

My support pack Worried About Masturbation should put your mind at rest.

But some people, particularly younger ones, find the idea that older people still enjoy sex distasteful, which may explain their reaction.
