    For the over sixties, it has to be Werthers Original, surely? But if you find the wrapper and not the sweet, be afraid, be very afraid!!

    That reminds me of my Hindu mate, he's 6'5" and built like a brick outhouse (to be polite). At his wedding another friend commented on his largesse in front of everyone. His response was "that's because every time I s*** your mom, she gives me some cake!". Still makes me smile, a real crowd-pleaser.

    Saga is a four letter acronym, Sex And Games for the Aged

    'Strip' bingo sounds like fun but without the 'hokey cokey' at the end.

    Yeh, I got that impression also, "anonymous".

    :shh: I hope you're sure and not feeling under any pressure.

    Best wishes to you anyway.

    Now, would someone be kind enough to remind me what sex is,
    and what all the fuss is about........

    Edit.
    Errrrmmm, perhaps not, the memory may just be too much for me.

    Take her Eastbourne! The playboy mansion for the elderly!

    A great way to burn calories.

    Either that or 'extreme' knitting or crown green bowls.

    Yeah sometimes you look at your non-diabetic partner eating something chocolatey or sugary and you think to yourself, this isn't fair, but unfortunately it's just something you have to expect. And you can join in, just not with sugary foods.

    I think you need to ask if you're old enough!

    Normally the effect is very pleasant, that's why people keep doing it. However it is known to use energy, particularly for the man. If you are T1 as advised, just up your BS before, and then check after. This should give you a guide. You shouldn't feel this is a regular routine, just an initial guide, after that have fun. Diabetics have healthy children by the natural method.
