Sex continues to be an important part of life for many aging adults -- even into their 70's and 80's.
Overall -- 73% of surveyed adults ages 57 to 64 said they'd had sex at least once within the past year.
The percentages dwindled with age.. but more than half of sexually active adults in the survey said they had sex with a partner 2 or 3 times a month.
Researchers say women of this age group were less likely to be sexually active because they usually outlive men.
