Mrs. Brady: I'm 80 And I Have A Friend With Benefits


Still an inspiration after all these years, Florence Henderson has taken to Closer Magazine this week to declare that she's loving the D more than ever at 80 years young:

I like to date, but not every date needs to lead to marriage. I actually have a friend with benefits. He lives in Fort Lauderdale, and is a chiropractor. I really enjoy his company, but I am sure he sees other people, as I do.

While I'm slightly annoyed that Mrs. Brady has a more active sex life than I do, I've got to admit that it's pretty punk rock of Mrs. Brady to be so open about her personal life in a society that frowns on any expression of sexuality past the age of 50. 

I still feel like I’m 28. I do anything and everything to stay active because, let’s face it, I am not slowing down anytime soon!...It’s foolish to think that older people don’t enjoy sex. It’s a big myth. There is no age limit on the enjoyment of sex. It keeps getting better. You learn to do things with more experience, intelligence and the ability to choose more wisely.

So on Sunday morning, if you wake up with a splitting headache next to some guy you don't even recognize, Florence Henderson applauds you. If you're feeling brave enough to read the entire story, you can pick up the latest issue of Closer Weekly on newsstands now.
