Florence Henderson may forever be known for playing Carol Brady on The Brady Bunch. But Henderson opened our minds a bit after revealing that she went on a date with Barry Williams, the actor who played her son, Greg, on the show, and then in her memoir, Life Is Not a Stage, admitted she got crabs after having a one-night stand with politician John Lindsay . We think it’s safe to say that her two shoes aren’t nearly as goody as Mrs. Brady’s.
So knowing all that, it shouldn’t be too surprising to learn that Henderson, 80, is totally fine having someone on speed-dial to whom she can call if she’s feeling a little randy.
“I like to date, but not every date needs to lead to marriage,” she recently told Closer Weekly. “I actually have a friend with benefits. He lives in Fort Lauderdale and is a chiropractor. I really enjoy his company, but I am sure he sees other people, as I do.”
Damn, girl, you go. Not that anyone needs to tell Henderson to go, or stop, for that matter. In fact, she may not even be able to control her urges. “I still feel like I’m 28,” she continued. “I do anything and everything to stay active because, let’s face it, I am not slowing down anytime soon!”
Oh, and Flo wasn’t done. She had something to say about seniors loving their sexy time, and it’s not about them having it, it’s those who choose to pretend that they don’t that are the problem.
“It’s foolish to think that older people don’t enjoy sex. It’s a big myth,” she declared. “There is no age limit on the enjoyment of sex. It keeps getting better. You learn to do things with more experience, intelligence and the ability to choose more wisely.”
Henderson is a hot, single older woman who takes care of herself, wants to be happy and is clearly enjoying life. Why shouldn’t she have a little fun and have her needs met from time to time? Thank you, Flo, for being you.
