70-year-old-virgin is ready to give it up
A 70-year-old woman who has never had sex has decided that it’s about time to give it a whirl.
Pam Shaw says she doesn’t believe in sex before marriage and has been too busy with her career as a cabaret dancer to settle down.
“Now’s the time. I’m ready to take the plunge for the right bloke,” Pam Shw tells the Sun. “My standards are still very high, though. I’m hoping to bag a tall, dark and handsome millionaire.”
“I feel I am ready to give marriage a go and maybe go to bed with a man,” she said. “You are never too old for anything. Just look at Joan Collins.”

Yahoo reports that on average, most people retain their virginity until 17.3 years of age.
A study released released last year by the National Center for Health Statistics, reports that 27% of young men and 29% of young women ages 15-24 say they’ve never had a sexual encounter. That’s up slightly from 22% for both males and females, in the government’s last such survey released in fall 2005, based on 2002 data.
Despite not engaging in sexual activity, Shaw, who goes by the stage name “The Sexational Pam’ knew singer Tom Jones and James Bond actor Roger Moore.
“Tom Jones was very good looking and we used to chat occasionally before I went on stage as the opening act,” she said. “In the late 60s we performed together. There was only a curtain separating our dressing areas.”
Shaw, who lived with her mother until 1995, said most men made the wrong assumption about her sex life because of her career in the entertainment industry.
“I’ve never really been intimate with a man, just a bit of kissing. I had a sexy stage name and dressed sexy but that was all for my career,” she said.
