Five extremely different men over the age of 60 talk about themselves and their lives when they were younger, when their egos and their sex drive dominated their thoughts and behavior. They reflect on how a man’s life changes after his hormones settle down, and on failed relationships, pain, feelings of guilt, and the never-ending search for love.
They talk about the fear of being unable to perform some day, worries about their prostate. And also about the sense of relief they feel, since they’re no longer slaves to sex. These men have become more gentle, and no longer feel that they have to conquer a woman. Sex no longer has a particular objective, and it’s more enjoyable as a result. The desire for young bodies is replaced by one for a mature partner who’s an equal in every way. After years of being driven by their libidos, dreams about more notches on the bedpost or even violent fantasies: finally, sex between two equals.
