The late Sir Terence Conran - deer, furniture maker, entrepreneur, restaurateur — will be remembered for the chicken brick, the beanbag and for introducing the British to the duvet. The last of these changed our sex lives. Or so he claimed. For Conran, who died last week aged 88, blankets and traditional bedmaking with hospital corners represented the stultifying world of the s from which he aimed to liberate the nation.

In women, satisfaction conran the current level of sexual activity was ificantly associated with using the Internet to seek sexual information sex advice. The multivariate logistic regression analysis showed that country was the only ificant predictor for both men and women. This article set out to investigate the prevalence of using the Internet for love and sexual purposes in 60—year-old men and women in four European countries, and whether sociodemographic factors and sexual activity could predict this type of Internet use.
Older European adults are most likely in the starting pit of using the Internet for love and sexual purposes having ly relied on other outlets for such purposes, e. The present study found that about 1 in 10 women in all countries used the Internet to find a committed partner, seek sexual information or advice, read or watch pornography, or buy sex products. There were few ificant cross-cultural differences in dating among women. The bivariate finding that more women in Portugal than in Norway and Denmark had used social media to find a partner for sex may be related to a decreased social network as a consequence of the decreased income after retirement in Portugal.
Among men, however, there were ificant cross-cultural datings sex usage. The conran the multivariate analyses showed that a lower proportion of men in Norway and Denmark than in Portugal used the Internet to seek sexual information and advice.
Also, a lower proportion of men in Portugal than in the other countries used the Internet to check out dating sites, buy sex products, and in particular, to read or watch pornography. The use of pornography has ly been studied in several Nordic countries. Both men and women in the Nordic countries i.
Furthermore, people in Norway, Denmark and Belgium have good Internet availability. Taken together, this is probably the most likely explanation for the observed difference in pornographic viewing rates and other Internet activities between Portugal and the other three countries.
Based on the findings from the multivariate analyses, we found that conran use of the Internet to find a committed partner decreased dating increasing age in men. Furthermore, level of education was a unique predictor for using Internet to find a committed partner in both genders. Compared to men and women with primary education, those with tertiary education had lower use of the Sex to check out dating sites.
This may reflect that men and women with higher education have other social arenas in which to find partners than the Internet. There may also be different social norms for using the Internet to find a partner for people with low and high education.
In addition, relationship status predicted use of the Internet to check out dating sites to find a committed partner in both genders.
As expected, the odds of using the Internet to seek a committed partner was higher for non-partnered persons compared to partnered participants. This may also correspond to the finding that women who masturbated were more likely than women who did not masturbate to use the Internet to find a committed partner. Women who masturbate may have a stronger drive than women that do not to find a partner to love and have sex with.
In men, the use of the Internet to watch pornography decreased with increasing age. Men and women who masturbated were more likely than individuals who did not masturbate to use the Internet to watch pornography.
Compared to men who were satisfied with their current level of sexual activity, those who were neither satisfied nor dissatisfied reported less use of the Internet to watch pornography. There was a similar tendency among women. Individuals who masturbate frequently may have a higher sex drive or place a higher value on their sex life, which motivated them to watch pornography and get dating out of it, as sex is more important to them.
The from this study indicates that in older age, men and women may be more similar in sex pornography tend to be more used among those who are sexually satisfied. In the conran, examples of sex products to buy on the Internet presented to the participants were sex toys, erotica, Viagra, lubricants, and more.
We found that both men and women who masturbated more were more likely to use the Internet to buy sex sex than individuals who did not masturbate. Clearly, there exists a group of older adults for whom sexuality is important in life, and they use the Internet to obtain means conran will enhance performance and enjoyment. However, it is important to pay attention that buying sex products, as well as seeking sexual information and advice, was not ificantly explained by any of the included predictors except for country.
Internet literacy Schreurs et al. Lastly, sexual dating thorough life was not associated with any online sexual activity in women.
When evaluating the of this four-country study, some limitations should be considered. From research, it is to be assumed that individuals with more liberal views about sexuality were more likely to participate in this study than more traditional individuals Dunne, This bias may be reflected in the findings, conran in overestimated rates of activity on the Internet in relation to the viewing of pornography or perhaps even finding a partner via the Internet as this is still somewhat unusual for older cohorts.
Further, although it was emphasized in the recruitment process that the responses from those sexually inactive were sex important as from those active, it is possible that sexually active aging men and datings are overrepresented in this study Dunne,which would, again, inflate our estimates of sexual activity and, highly likely, sexual satisfaction.
Some of the measures included in the questionnaire could represent a limitation. Finally, o f the recruited participants, only 0.
As the latter category is difficult to interpret, we chose not include sexual orientation in our analyses. Therefore, due to a small of aging non-heterosexual persons, generalizations of findings to self-identified non-heterosexuals or other sexual minorities may be precluded de Vries, The present study is one of the few comparative cross-cultural studies with probability samples focusing on sexuality in aging men and women across Europe.
By studying how 60—year-olds in Norway, Denmark, Belgium, and Portugal use the Internet sex sex and love purposes, some interesting implications for future sexual health interventions can be found. Our conclusion is that the Internet is important for many older adults with regard to finding partners, seeking advice, and watching pornography throughout Europe. Given that the dating generations of older adults will be more familiar and competent with using the Internet, our study indicates that there is a great potential for using the Internet conran sexual health interventions for older adults across Europe.
In addition to serving as an arena to watch and read erotica, websites giving knowledge and advice about sexual issues may help future older adults achieve better sexual health and quality of life. Tailored websites to promote both sexuality and how to preserve a committed relationship are likely to prove important for the aging population.
