Denmark: the land of Hans Christian Anderson; herring; elegant furniture; and hot, randy, nursing home sex! Yes indeedy!
According to researchers, “Caregivers in Copenhagen have found that pornography and prostitutes have a greater calming effect on their elderly patients than traditional medical treatment such as drug therapy.”7
Staff at the Thorupgaarden nursing home in the Danish capital have been broadcasting pornography on the building's internal video channel every Saturday night for several years. And if videos and dirty magazines don't relieve the tension, residents can order up a prostitute for an hour or two.
Sex has a greater calming effect than drugs. Imagine that!
You’ve got to hand it to those Danes; they know how to spice up their senior centers.
Prostitution is legal in Copenhagen and — regardless of your thoughts on pornography and prostitution — you’ve got to admit that this is a novel way to keep the synapses firing in one’s elder years.
Honestly, what would you rather have: drugged-up, grumpy elderly people in a senior home; or, chilled-out, basking-in-the-after-glow-of-some-good-loving elderly people?
So, if you’re in a nursing home, or the next time you visit one, make sure to pay attention to the subtle signs. If there’s a sock on the door, it could be a signal to keep out. Don’t come a knockin’ when Gramma’s a rocking!
