Celibacy the answer to a long life

Clara Meadmore  has a wonderfully British name and is 105. Her answer to longevity is celibacy and she does seem to have had a really interesting and fulfilling life. She says she didn’t have time for it because she had other things to do. In this day and age that is a really frank appraisal and the unfortunate thing is it was assumed she was lesbian. That’s our values going on to her. It’s not for everyone but each time we learn of someone who lives long and happy we want to know. So there’s your answer! She looks pretty well and has a calm looking face. We are overcrowding the planet, so her lifestyle should be validated. The rest of us can’t control our urges.
