Love in later life can still be passionate, but for many couples intimacy, like most things, can be harder. With arthritic knees, impotence, and sagging skin, it may not appeal to the young.For the couple in Dad, though, things are still good and love remains in the air.However, it is their son, now reaching middle age, who has problems. Unlike his parents he has no outlet for his desire and while he hears his mother orgasm next door his own desires are far from fulfilled. His frustration turns to disgust.Is it jealousy or is he smothered by their love?
