Fabulous work. I wonder if I can invite your readership to join a research study?

I am a Registered Nurse and PhD researcher writing to invite your members the opportunity to participate in a research study supervised by the University of Hull. I am researching the experiences of sexual intimacy and people between 75-85 years of age in partnership relationships.

Many people don’t talk about sexual intimacy but we know that 60% of people over 70 have sexual contact. This is not necessarily sexual intercourse but can range from listening to music, dancing, kissing etc., in fact anything that couples think of as intimacy. We need to know more about this as it is very important to quality of life. The study has University ethics approval. If you or any of your friends would like to participate, this can be done by contacting me via email or telephoning on 07851434087 or writing about your experiences (anonymously if you wish) to
