A lounge "intimacy" joke for the aged

Not exactly safe for work, but only "mental pictures"!


A couple, both age 78, went to a sex therapist's office. The doctor asked, "What can I do for you?"

The man said, "Will you watch us have sex?"

The doctor looked puzzled, but agreed.

When the couple finished, the doctor said, "There's nothing wrong with the way you have sex," and charged them $50.

This happened several weeks in a row. The couple would make an appointment, have sex with no problems, pay the doctor, then leave.

Finally, the doctor asked, "Just exactly what are you trying to find out?"

"We're not trying to find out anything," the husband replied.
"She's married and we can't go to her house. I'm married and we can't go to my house. The Holiday Inn charges $90. The Hilton charges $108. We do it here for $50...and I get $43 back from Medicare.

1. I have to admit I laughed at the punchline.

But them I'm easily amused.

Has anyone watched the Netflix movie with Chevy Chase and Richard Dreyfuss? There are some good zingers in there also.

4. Ah, well that explains why they have no problems with sex:

They are not married to each other.

6. Hmmm. . . . it sounds like an anti-Medicare "joke" to me. The kind of propaganda meme

that gets shared around Facebook.

The idea that joke is pushing is that Medicare funds are being wasted.

I doubt that Medicare pays for sex therapists, since it doesn't pay for erectile dysfunction treatment, with machines or drugs.

This is from 2015:

https://www.nytimes.com/2015/08/04/health/sex-never-dies-but-a-medicare-option-for-older-men-does.html

On July 1, however, Medicare stopped covering vacuum erection devices, the result of legislation Congress passed in December. Since 2006, Congress has banned Medicare Part D coverage of medications for erectile dysfunction, too, after Representative Steve King, Republican of Iowa, scoffed at “lifestyle drugs” and said taxpayers wouldn’t foot the tab for “Grandpa’s Viagra.”

SNIP

“There are multiple, multiple studies showing a strong link between good sex and quality of life in both younger and older individuals,” Dr. Thomas said. But when it comes to financing this particular facet of health care, older adults are pretty much on their own.

SNIP

One might argue that maintaining patients’ ability to have sex should be a low priority, given the other demands on the program. Yet most of us probably consider hearing and eating high priorities, and Medicare doesn’t pay for hearing aids or dental care, either.

7. I see 43 K&Rs

Seems those DUers are just enjoying an innocent laugh and aren't looking for an insidious political bent.

8. I don't think you or any of them are pulling a fast one. But I believe

that whoever wrote that "joke" was trying to make the idea go viral that Medicare wastes its funds.

Unless you yourself wrote that joke, of course.

9. If I wrote it?

I'd be lucky to write "Why didn’t the lifeguard save the hippie? Because he was too far out man!"

10. That joke has been around at least 35 years. I first heard it

when I was working for the Part B Medicare carrier in the late 1970s / early 1980s. We thought it was hysterical because of the way the old couple was getting away with their affair and saving money too.

In the ORIGINAL version the provider was a psychologist not a sex therapist and they asked him to do this because they were having "marital problems".......

Also, Medicare cut the blazes out of any sort of mental health back then it was like 50% of the 80% coverage of the allowable charge, so there is no way a $50 office visit would bring back $43 - more like $7.50 which would be an even better deal for the old guy.

There are a lot of holes in the joke both in the old and new versions, but it is still DAMN funny.
