Don’t have a doggy pal? No worries: you can enjoy the wellbeing benefits through this free guided meditation (starring adorable dogs!) from the folks at SpareRoom. Our cute-o-meter just imploded.

You’re never too old to have good sex, and it turns out British seniors are a lusty generation (hurrah for that!). A poll has revealed that 63% of over-60s think about nooky on a weekly basis, while a quarter want to try new things with their partner. Top of the frisky list? BDSM (erotic role-play to you and me): nearly two-thirds of over-60s are intrigued and want to learn more. Just make sure you’ve got some lube to hand to help keep things comfortable. We rate Durex Naturals Intimate Gel, as it’s moisturising, water-based and suitable for use with Latex and sex toys.
