British actress Jacqueline Bisset is convinced society depicts older women as not wanting to have sex, causing men to hunt for younger companions in order to satisfy their sexual needs.
“Older women continue to want sex, they're horny, they want to connect. But the men don't want to sleep with those women,” the 69-year-old recently told U.K.'s The Guardian.
“I think there are men who can handle quite a few women at once, and do. I hear of people who've had three families. It seems amazing that they have time,” she expressed.
But Jacqueline ultimately has no respect for those types. “Lots of men encourage people to be like that. They hang around and go to bars and stuff and there's no respect for women there. I don't even know if these guys like women.”
She concluded, “It's all self-glorification, narcissism, probably a terrible self-loathing and desperate insecurity. Needing to prove all the time. Never content with the one person viewing them with love. Checking they're still attractive, especially as they get older.”
But The Deep star reasoned females also need a certain amount of encouragement when they reach a certain age. “Women feel that too — needing that extra little wink from somebody,” she shared, though she admits the break-up of a relationship often affects the woman more.
“I think most women have been through some sort of agony with this stuff. It can destroy your life completely," the never-married actress said. "I think where there's a great deal of love a lot of excuses are made. Because it's so rare to love somebody."
