MSNBC recently reported on Tempest Storm, 80-year-old queen of the classy strip tease who still performs multiple times per year in Las Vegas. Back in the days of Bettie Page, when Tempest and her art were in their most popular years, full nude strip teases were not done.

Furthermore, she offers additional proof that sexuality can, and often is, enjoyed throughout life. Younger generations, and society as a whole, might just be starting to cease the asexualization of our older generations. I’ve certainly enjoyed this mass media trend toward recognizing elder sexuality! Don’t forget, she isn’t just “sexy for her age,” she is sexy for any age.
