The number of women over the age of 40 giving birth exceeded 100,000 for the first time in 2003. There were 1,512 first time mothers between the ages of 45 and 54 last year as well. An inevitable corresponding increase in consumption of fertility drugs, Viagra, and booze is soon to be reported, no doubt.
At any given time of the day, somewhere, there are old people having sex. As I soon will begin to plow into my 40′s, I find that fact somewhat comforting.
