Feel free to admit it: When you were younger, you probably didn't want to entertain the idea of older couples having sex — let alone imagine the age 60-version of yourself getting it on. But now? Yes, please.

At this age, you have deeper intimacy with your partner and don't have to worry about pregnancy or pesky menopausal hot flashes. Bonus: Fewer distractions with the kids and work, and flat-out more opportunities to get busy. Viva the golden years!

That's how it goes in your head anyway. The reality is that sex at certain age brings a whole new slew of questions and issues and worries. The upside is that there's a handy 24/7 resource available to help — one that didn't even exist in the world when you endured your first round of sex-ed agita.

We already use Google for everything from researching the benefits of the spiffiest spin bikes to looking up driving directions to that new Italian restaurant you heard good things about. But the best part about the uber-popular search engine with its alluring clean white home page is its ability to deliver quick, easy and nonjudgmental answers in a blink ... and often with research to back it up.

And while Google is no substitute for your personal doctor, it's reassuring to know that it's there for you in the middle of the night when your wheels are spinning (and your body isn't cooperating when you need it the most).

You may clear your search history about sex, but there's no need to clear your conscience. Everybody does it. After researching popular keywords on Google and surveying friends and coworkers 60 and older, I present 50 examples of what people are searching for most. It's not an official list, but we're pretty certain you've Googled a few of these phrases yourself.
