Dominatrix grandmother proves you don't have to be 20 to have kinky and sexy experiences

A grandmother in her 60s is changing all the rules when it comes to bondage and kink. Ms. Robin, from Des Moines, Iowa, says she was always meant to be a dominatrix. And now that's exactly what she is doing. It's kind of amazing.

Ms. Robin — her professional name — is part of the kink community that is getting a lot of exposure thanks to E.L. James' best-selling erotic series 50 Shades of Grey. Her life really doesn't seem all that weird. Which makes it all the more amazing. See below:

She told the Des Moines Register all about her sex life that included clients who like to be ticked, flogged, whipped, and spanked. Yowza.

It might seem weird to those of us who are mostly vanilla, but for the BDSM crowd — largely comprised of doctors, lawyers, and big earners, Ms. Robin says — it's all pretty par for the course. I say: Good for her! May we all be so lucky to be able to pursue our particular passions well into our 60's and 70's. Just because you have kids or become a grandmother or start collecting social security shouldn't mean you stop enjoying life. Life is meant to be lived.

For most of us, whippings and floggings sound unsexy. But for those who love it, it's what they love. Are they all consenting adults? Yes? Then why do we care?

Whether a person is 65 or 25, they should be allowed to enjoy sex. I hate the idea of ending my sex life. It is decidedly more boring than Ms. Robin's, but it's still pretty awesome and I still have no desire to just stop it because I am "old."

We need to let go of the idea that there is an expiration date on being sexy. May we all live long, healthy, highly sexual lives. May we all find the things that make us scream and may we keep doing them until the day we die.
