Guess Who Has the Most First-Date Sex? Posted: 2007-12-20 16:59:56 Although they still expect a man to take them on a proper date, including picking up the tab, single women over age 50 are twice as likely as their under-40 friends to have sex on the first date, according to a survey by a British dating company. Specifically, 37 percent of Baby Boomer singles would have sex on the first date, compared with just 18 percent of younger singles. Gentlemen, this won't come cheap. Among the women who said they would have sex on the first date, a stunning 76 percent said they expected romance first and for the dinner bill to be fully paid by the man. When it comes to love expectations, lust and passion are tops for Boomers, according to the survey conducted by Facts International for Wanobe.com and its online dating partner, PARSHIP.co.uk. More than half of the over-50 crowd said lust and passion were more important than marriage. In fact, only 7 percent hoped their next relationship would lead to the altar, compared with 32 percent of singles in their 30s. "Clearly, being over 50 doesn't mean you give up on love. The under 30s may feel they invented sexual liberation, but it was the Baby Boomer generation who staged the first summer of love -- more than 40 years ago," says David Noble, managing director of wanobe.com. Some other eye-popping facts about sex, lust and passion and the over-50 crowd: -- 84 percent of over-50 singles want a full sexual relationship with the next person they meet. -- 60 percent said they don't care what their children think about their dates. -- 41 percent are looking for commitment. -- 32 percent are likely to flirt with a complete stranger. -- 20 percent are seeking just casual fun. -- 19 percent are game for anything. -- 18 percent will happily date someone at least 10 years younger. "The research proves that men and women over 50 no longer feel that they have to give up on romance and passion and simply dedicate the rest of their lives to gardening, looking after grandchildren, and providing financial support for their offspring" says Dr Victoria Lukats, a psychiatrist and relationship expert for PARSHIP, who lead the research.
