Staying on top of the latest sexual wellness trends is all part of my job. One of my favorite resources is the monthly trade magazines like AVN (Adult Video News). The first thing I do after the magazine is delivered is flip toward the back for the latest porn movie releases. Recently I noticed titles like — “My Uncle Likes Me Hairy” “Horny Grannies Love to Fuck 14,” and “Weekend at Grandpa’s 7.”  Geez, they are already on number fourteen for grannies? There must be something driving the production into double digits.

Of course, being curious, I Googled and was pleasantly surprised at hundreds of listings featuring men and women nearly as old as my grandmother. Looking further into the subject, I realized that there is a growing trend in older adult films called Silver Porn–not just in Japan but here, in good old America.

Older Adult Silver Porn

Mojo Rising

The sale of silver porn has skyrocketed over the past decade as spry seniors celebrate their mojo. Viagra also seems to be helping too! Overall, the adult movie industry rakes in an estimated $20 billion annually. That’s a lot of dough for sex films. But what really got me is 20 to 30% of that market being generated from movies featuring unabashed twinkly-eyed older adult men and women. When I say older adult, I mean people over the age of 60. Not so bad considering 46 million Americans are over the age of 65 and healthier than ever. By 2060 there will be nearly 98 million people over 65. Looks like silver porn is here to stay.

Age Appropriation

Personally, I enjoy watching silver porn. I’ve always had a “daddy” fetish and, for me, there is something really arousing seeing a silver-haired fox giving and/or getting a good shtupping. Plus, as a middle-aged woman myself and with an older adult husband, I kind of identify with performers who are more “age-appropriate” so to say. Sure, it’s nice seeing young, nubile couples going at it, but oftentimes it’s uninspiring. Silver porn stretches the limits of eroticism and the results are both humorous and arousing.

Cashing In

Performing in silver porn is definitely not for the faint-hearted! While a majority of older adults look forward to taking up golfing, bird watching or crocheting doilies there are quite a few who are cashing in on the “silver-economy” boom. For a lot of these performers, it’s more than just about the money, it’s an opportunity for expressing their sexuality and showing the world that older people have healthy sex lives too. And since a lot of people over 65 are basically aging out of the workforce performing in silver porn is a great way of padding their bank accounts.

Wisdom Nugget

I realized something after watching a few scenes of Horny Widows 10. Silver porn represents more than just older people fucking. The older adult performers (and amateurs alike) prove that no matter your age, you can still have a healthy and vigorous sex life. Just because you have an AARP card or take advantage of the senior discount at Kroger, it does not mean you’re any less sexy or arousing. We don’t have to shut down the eroticism and become a Walmart greeter after a certain age. The truth of the matter is we all get older and do not remain young forever. So, why not watch some silver porn tonight and get your MILF or DILF or GILF or PILF on…you just might like it!
