The rules may not have changed, but the hazards certainly have. AIDS was not the hazard 35 years ago that it is now, and palimony has become an established fact. You live with a person for a while and then split and s/he can often successfully claim some effort to support him/her in the manner that s/he has become accustomed.

"Returning after 35 years off" rather implies one who is at least 44 years old (if from the hills here). That's about the age at which "available" women begin to outnumber the available men by a significant percentage. The disparity increases fairly rapidly as ages advance - in most populous areas.

That does mean that a woman of that age or older must often learn to be somewhat more aggressive (predatory is another word that comes to mind) to have a reasonable chance of successful hunting.

It also suggests that a male of "mature age," provided that a fair number of fair ones can be found, may choose between being "easily satisfied" or "very afraid."

Males of any age should note that a fair percentage of early marriages last no more than a few years, with hubbies being cast out when they become a bad influence on the children, so young females (20 - 24?), recently divorced, with homes full of squalling brats, may be plentiful. Abject FEAR is recommended should those be encountered by anyone of sensible years. (usually)

Maybe. I'd always heard that people that marry young don't stay together. But all my friends who were married young (right out of high school) are still married to the same people. I think there's something to be said for a couple growing up together.

Friends who married when older generally broke up later. Maybe we get too set in our ways to adapt to living with a new person after a while?

It may well take longer.

Give thought to how to achieve it without the inherent risks. These may include AIDS and chlamydia, but back then there were the clap and the siph, and the dreaded herpes (What's the difference between love and herpes? Herpes is for ever!)

The risk of pregnancy may well be lower now. THe risk of bankruptcy higher.

Is it worth any ineradicable risk? What is the cost of reducing the risk?

THE mechanics are the same, if the mechanic can still find the spanner

It probably is just that lots of people marry at about 18 - 20, and a percentage of the marriages don't last once the bills pile up and the kids start coming along. (Census figures show a trend toward later first marriages, so maybe that has changed some.)

The eligible males at that age are out partying, and with kids at home many of the females in that group can't really get out and swing with the ones who've remained - or become - single, so they clump up in organized "singles sympathy" groups or other places where they might "meet a man." Especially those who settled for a loser the first time around don't seem too fussy about the next try - and they're often determined to latch on and cling desparately to anyone in sight.

It's not so much that there are that many of them, but they travel in coveys and are into "pack hunting" at the kill.

In my (too) brief single period, it seemed there was a secondary peak in women at around 32 - 35+, which may be when the "7-year itch" hit marrieds (of both sexes) and they start getting bored with what they've had, and/or when those who've always been single begin to hear the bio-clock ticking(?).

Possibly both these groups, if one must generalize, would be a bit youngish for someone who claims 35 years + of being out of the market. Unfortunately a large percentage of more suitably mature women seem to withdraw, in one way or another, and render themselves "unfindable." (Probably having tea together and lamenting the absence of good men.)

Relearning sex...

that recalls to me the story of a young social worker in Appalachia who was counseling a troubled pair of newlyweds from deep in the hollers. After several minutes of beating around the bush, so to speak, he realized that they had not yet consumated their marriage. Under further questioning, he realized that they didn't understand the mechanics of copulation. He made another appointment for two days later, and brought in his daughter's Barbie and Ken dolls. As he explained the activity to the astonished couple, he stripped the clothing from the dolls and manipulated them into several intimate positions, finally handing Barbie to the young woman and Ken to the young man, and letting them follow his instruction.
The next morning a knock came on the social worker's door. He opened it, and there stood the young man who, without speaking a word, punched the social worker sending him sprawling on the floor, climbed back into his pickup, and drove away.

Well, the wedding was on Sunday....but on Monday, Zeke came stompin' up to her Daddy's place, dragging Bessie Sue by the arm. Her daddy came out when he heard the ruckus and said,
"Whut's goin' on, Zeke?"

"Waal", says Zeke, "I'm a bringin' her back...she won't do!"

"But, on Sunday you was so happy to be gittin' Bessie Sue!"

"Yeah, but now I don't b'lieve she was a virgin, like you said she was."

"Why in the world would you think that, Zeke?"

"It's just that Sunday night when we...you know...she was just a mite too sure 'bout whut to do!"

"Well, Zeke....you know it ain't like it gotta be studied. It comes kinda natural."

"Yeah...well, maybe that up & down stuff comes natural, but that 'round & round' stuff is learned!!"

Mrs. Slocum came down from the mountain every year to the settlement clinic where she gave birth. Every year. For fourteen years. As they bundled up the newborn baby—her fifteenth—and put it in her arms as she was about to head back up to her mountain home, the doctor said, "Well, I guess we'll see you again next year, eh, Mrs. Slocum?"

"Nope!" sez Mrs. Slocum.

"No?" sez the doctor. "You're not having any more children?"

"Nope!" sez Mrs. Slocum. "We found out what wuz doin' it!"

I don't know that one can learn or unlearn love, caring, consideration, communication and all the basics that matter most.

On all other counts, give or take a wrinkle here and a sag there, I wouldn't want to go back 35 years. Older women are usually more relaxed because they don't have to worry about getting pregnant. Older men are generally in less of a rush about the whole thing. What most of us didn't know about sex when we were young and horny and thought we knew everything could fill a book. There's more information out there about sex than ever before, including what to do when the equipment isn't working so well. And speaking of equipment, there's a lot of that too, and it's turning up in the most straightlaced of bedrooms.

I don't buy that sex has to get lousy as one gets older. Different, yes. But maybe better. (And if it's with the same person as when one was young, that is very, very cool.)

The question that remains unanswered:

Is Gulliver, who expressed his concer, concerned about how to do it, or about how to get it?

Either aspect of it could be equally difficult, depending on the circumstances and abilities of the person; but we could use some guidance as to whether he's interested in all the kinky things people do now - that HE may not have done 35 years ago - (although none of them are really very new); or whether he's concerned about findin' and courtin' and sweet talkin' at 'em.

The mechanics of sex, once learned are never forgotten - even after 35 years.
The only advice I would give is, if the intended partner suffers from whooping cough or bouts of uncontrollable sneezing, take precautions - wear a seat-belt!

As far as the emotional side is concerned - goood luck and congratulations.

The 'Am I too old to learn' thread suggests that Gulliver may have spent the past 35 years sitting at home knitting socks - perhaps one of the socks came out wrong and turned into a 'willy warmer' which stirred up memories of the seventies.
