(HealthDayNews) -- The quest for sex never dies completely.

That was proven recently by a team of researchers at the Universitat Giessen in Germany, who asked a group of women between the ages of 50 and 90 about their personal sexual feelings.

As reported in the German-language journal Zeitschrift Fur Arztliche Fortbildung Und Qualitatssicherung, older women do have some complaints about their sex lives.

Most say their unhappiness has nothing to do with hormones or physical problems. Their chief complaint was a lack of partners.
