Florence Henderson is on Retirement Living TV, but she is not retiring her youthful ways.

"The Brady Bunch" mother is getting very candid about what sex is like at 80 years old.

"I still feel like I'm 28," she tells Closer Weekly. "There's no age limit on the enjoyment of sex. It keeps getting better."

But why is it better?

Her theory is, "You learn to do things with more experience, intelligence and the ability to choose more wisely."

As for her love life, she admits, "I actually have a friend with benefits." She says he's a chiropractor who lives in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., but they're not an exclusive item. Instead, she prefers to keep her options open saying, "I really enjoy his company, but I am sure he sees other people, as I do."

While she did not say the age of her friend with benefits, she did say that she likes younger men, in their 60s. "I like to date younger men because they need to keep up with me," she says.

Henderson, who will turn 81 on Valentine's day, has been married twice before. She has four children with Ira Bernstein, but the couple divorced in 1985 after 29 years of marriage. She later married John Kappas, who passed away in 2002.
