According to a BBC report, the HIV rate among over 50's people has risen dramatically over the past 7 years. Lisa Power, of the HIV charity the Terrence Higgins Trust, said their own research had found the over-50s were now the fastest growing group of people with HIV in the UK.

Any ideas as to why this increase in risky sexual behavior in seniors?

I think it's because some of us old farts finally figured out that sex is fun. We're old enough to know better but still young enough not to give a damn. I talked this over with my doctor a couple of years ago when the figures started coming out and he said it wasn't just HIV. We're almost running neck and neck with the kids. HHH

Well, I think a lot of 50somes are getting out there. Spouses start dying off in larger numbers in your 50s. Maybe that's related?

I would suggest that a lot of 50somes also had shittier sex ed than current generations and are more hesitant to discuss sexual health with their doctors. I am sure that I am more knowledgeable about sexual health than my mom, sadly. =/
