A final farewell to sex

The most obvious thing about moving into my 70s was the disappearance of what was the most important thing in life: I ceased to be a sexual being.' Diana Athill, 90, reflects on the affair that carried her into old age

Diana is 90 - I am only 58. So this is not anything about resonances with my experience. In fact very much the opposite. I have never met anyone - male or female - with this kind of attitude. I wish I had. It is also very good writing indeed.
