Joy Behar is not on the market, but she insists it’s “scientifically smart” for women her age to date younger men.

Behar, 81, says older men can’t keep up with mature women in the bedroom.

On Thursday’s episode of “The View,” Behar said younger men are more sexually compatible with older women.


“There is this notion in the public that women should stay within their own age bracket,” she explained. “But when you think about it, women basically live six years longer than men. So if you go with a guy who’s younger than you, you probably die at the same time. So that’s good.”

She added: “Plus, men reach their sexual peak much younger than women do. So you need an older woman. You want a younger guy.”

Behar has one daughter from her first marriage to college professor Joe Behar in 1965. They divorced in 1981. In 2011, she married Steve Janowitz, who is seven years younger.

“I always have a younger guy,” she said. “My husband is seven years younger than me. He drives at night, he does the heavy lifting. He’s sharp as a tack. If I get old, depressed and decrepit, which I am already almost, he’ll wheel me around instead of I’m wheeling him around.”

She continued: “I think it’s a really good plan to go with a guy younger. It’s scientifically smart to do it.”

Behar added, “I like them younger. I don’t want them old.”
