A couple, both well into their senior years, goes to a sex therapist's office. The doctor asks them, “What can I do for you?” The elderly man answers, “Will you watch us have sexual intercourse?” The doctor raises his eyebrows, amazed to see such an elderly couple asking for sexual advice, but he agrees. When the couple finishes, the doctor says, “There is absolutely nothing wrong with the way you have intercourse.” He thanks them for coming, wishes them good luck, charges them P1,000 in doctor’s fees and says goodbye.
This happens a few more times. The couple makes an appointment, has intercourse with no problem, pays the doctor and leaves. The therapist, after three months of the same routine, finally asks: “I'm sorry, but I have to ask, just what are you trying to find out?” The man replied, “We're not trying to find out anything. She's married, so we can't do it in her house. I'm married so we can't do it in my house. Sogo charges P2,000, and Victoria Court P4,000. Plus we need insurance in case one of us keels over.”
