We're not kids anymore, but when it comes to romance, sometimes even long-attached boomers find themselves playing coy, teenager-like games.
Join the discussion: Talk openly with other seniors about love, sex and relationships.
That's especially true when it comes to the delicate matter of bedroom experience-enhancing drugs — a situation hilariously explored in a new animation by two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist and animator Walt Handelsman.
To the tune of "Take Me Out to the Ball Game," the middle-age hero of Walt's 'toon sneaks upstairs to pop a Little Blue Pill — never imagining his wife knows exactly what he's up to.
"That's what I love most about this one," says Walt. "They're obviously in love with each other. He's skipping around, feeling like a kid again, and she knows exactly what he's doing!
"The cliché is 'You're only as old as you feel,' and it's actually true when it comes to relationships. When you're sitting around with your spouse or significant other, and you have these little inside jokes, you feel like a kid.
"It's only when you try to stand up that you realize your back hurts!"
