AARP Survey: More than 40% of Men 50-Plus Say “Yes” to the ‘Little Pink Pill’ for Female Partner
Many open to a ride in a driverless car and most think it’s harder to find a job today

WASHINGTON, DC—AARP released today online survey results of people 50-plus and their pulse on some of the most topical issues of the day. The results show openness to an FDA-approved pill to enhance the sex drive of female partners, but the survey also found that men and women differed on their willingness to use or suggest the use of the drug.

Of those surveyed:

  • 41% of men 50-plus said they would encourage their partner to use the drug, if needed.  
  • 21% of women 50-plus said they would take the pill, if needed, to enhance their sex drive. *

The survey is part of an ongoing AARP polling series to disrupt aging and highlight how Americans 50 and older feel about issues that affect their health, finances, and everyday lives.

50-Plus Leaving the Door Open to Driverless Cars

In this survey, AARP found more openness to the cutting-edge driverless car. AARP asked people,“If you had the opportunity, would you take a ride in a driverless car?”The idea was popular with people 50 and older, and the older they were, the more open they were to the idea.

Of those surveyed:

  • 59% of people 50-plus said given the opportunity, they would take a ride in a driverless car
  • 62% of people 65-plus said given the opportunity, they would take a ride in a driverless car *

With Labor Day right around the corner, AARP also asked people 50 and older whether it is harder today to find a job than when they found their first job. See what some people 50-plus have to say about looking for a job today: VIDEO: AARP Labor Day Video
