“Why should sex and relationships be a taboo subject once you reach 70?”

“Why should sex and relationships be a taboo subject once you reach 70?” says performer, Terri Morrow “It’s not like you suddenly reach a point where all you want to do is play bingo. This show is giving us a chance to express that as you age all your emotions, desires, hopes stay with you. For me, life is getting better and better. I'm happier at 70 than I ever was at 30"…
