Why do people think it's so easy to get sex?

I was reading the Dear Prudie colum in Slate online.
The first question is from a 50-plus widow who misses sex and wonders if she is abnormal for wanting sex, especially with much younger men. Prudie assure her that she is not and says "but I guarantee if you want partners you will find them." (She suggests posting an online dating ad which indicates that she's not looking for commitment.) Well I can tell you, as a 50-plus woman, that it certainly isn't that easy to find guys to have even casual sex with unless maybe you look like Christic Brinkley. Of course I have been propositioned occasionally by really creepy drunk guys in bars or guys online that I haven't met and the operative word here is again, creepy. I'm not even talking about getting a younger guy or a guy who looks like a model--I'd be happy with an average looking middle aged man. I wouldn't be opposed to having some casual sex but I wouldn't put an ad up to get it--I could just imagine who would come out of the woodwork then! I've heard many times that people say "oh if you want sex, that's easy to get." Yeah, if you are 25 and cute, I imagine that guys are lining up, but for us middle aged women, not so much.
