PhotoWhen the Food and Drug Administration approved a pill to enhance women's sex drive, we speculated that men might turn out to be the most enthusiastic promoters of the new treatment. Now an AARP survey seconds that notion.

The organization for older Americans surveyed 50-plus consumers and found men nearly twice as enthusiastic about the drug, Addyi, as women.

Of those surveyed:

  • 41% of men 50-plus said they would encourage their partner to use the drug, if needed.  
  • 21% of women 50-plus said they would take the pill, if needed, to enhance their sex drive.

AARP said the survey is part of an ongoing AARP polling series to "disrupt aging and highlight how Americans 50 and older feel about issues that affect their health, finances, and everyday lives."

Driverless cars

Besides female libido, the survey looked at seniors' attitudes towards driverless cars and found it pretty positive.

AARP asked people,“If you had the opportunity, would you take a ride in a driverless car?” The idea was popular with people 50 and older, and the older they were, the more open they were to the idea,

Of those surveyed:

  • 59% of people 50-plus said given the opportunity, they would take a ride in a driverless car
  • 62% of people 65-plus said given the opportunity, they would take a ride in a driverless car 

Perhaps not having to drive would leave more time for ... oh, never mind.
