The sex lives of today's over-50s puts the younger generation in the shade, according to new research.
However, as many of them don't use protection, they're candidates for STIs.
It's an explosive scenario because more than half admit they never use protection and four out of five say they haven't been tested for an STI.
The study of 2,000 single people over 50 showed that more than one in three would have sex within the first three dates.
The survey, for dating app Lumen by Censuswide, polled 6,000 people globally, of which 2,000 were Britons.
Caroline Abrahams, Age UK's charity director, said: "Unless we end the taboo around sex in later life, there's a risk that more older people will be at risk of STIs."
