Couple with 40-year age gap still enjoy great s*x life despite wife being 83

A husband and wife say a 40 year age gap has not hampered their s-x life - and say their love has continued to blossom.

Edna Martin, 83, and partner Simon, 44, say they spend their evenings cuddling on the sofa "like a couple of kids".

And they do not hold back with public displays of affection.

The couple, who are madly in love 14 years after marrying, say their intimacy is as strong as ever despite Edna's age.

She said: "We are still intimate in the bedroom as much as any couple in love.

"We'll often stop in the street and have a damn good kiss - I've never felt conscious of the age gap in public.

"I kiss Simon's neck and pinch his bum in the supermarket - he will twang the back of my bra in the queue.

"We just do what two people in love do."

The couple made national headlines in 2005 as their love became public - with cynics suggesting Edna, now a great-grandmother-of-one, was looking for a naive toyboy.

But they have more than proved the doubters wrong.

They renewed the wedding vows at their home in Weston-super-Mare, Somerset, in 2015 and have developed the pet names 'Piglet' and 'Piglette' in recent years.

Recalling how they met, Edna said: "We both share a passion for organ music and moved around in similar circles.

"I kept hearing about this 'funny little man' named Simon Martin and I thought our paths will have to cross at some point.

"Eventually we were introduced by a friend and after a polite chat I kissed him on the cheek.

"Then he embraced me and I said to our mutual friend 'He likes hugs, doesn't he?'

"I thought at that moment 'I don't want to let him go?'

"Before we were together he would talk to me for five hours at night over the phone and when he came to stay he would play Goodnight, Sweetheart on the electronic organ every single night.

"I cried every time."
