Reuters is on a roll:

Sexually active midlife women continue to have sex

Critical information is missing from the apparently tautological headline:

> Most women who are sexually active when they enter middle age continue
> to engage sexually as they grow older, even if they were diagnosed
> with sexual dysfunction, new research shows.

Why didn't they put it in the headline?

> "It may be detrimental to label a woman as sexually dysfunctional,"
> said Thomas, from the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.
