Veteran Nollywood actress, Joke Silva, has said it is a wrong notion that older women are less sexually active than their younger counterparts.
The actress spoke in the latest episode of the Africa Magic docuseries: “The Rabors Forever After.”
Silva also emphasised the role of sex in marriages.
The said during the Africa Magic docuseries: “Somebody decided to say: ‘People should accept the fact that men are: one, polygamous in nature, and also the older a man gets, the younger he needs a woman because the older woman is not as active.’
“And I’m reading this and I said: ‘What a load of crock.’
“Once you’ve gone through menopause, number one, you’re more relaxed.
“You’re not taking anything chemical – none of that.
“And then you’re not taking chemicals for pregnancy.
“So, you’re saying you’re comfortable (not being sexually active).
“You’re so much more relaxed.
“There are things for dryness.
“Lubricants for both parties.”
