About the song: Is sex only for people who are young, good looking and healthy? That's what pop culture constantly says, but it ain't necessarily so. In this funny-serious song about a couple in their 60's or beyond, a sexually-experienced woman explains to a man with whom she has recently become a close friend that older people need not be deprived of a sensual/sexual life solely because of age. Indeed, in many ways, sex when you're older and wiser can be more interesting than ever, especially if it is looked at as a process, not a goal. These sentiments are accompanied musically by a changing series of Latin rhythms.

Gender point of view: Presumably a male-female couple, but … not necessarily.
