The study was based on a sex content analysis of humorous sex-related messages posted during one full year by members of 14 leading online communities for seniors. If it was an in-group member oneself, another community member, or the community as a humrthe portrayal was rather positive, but when the butt belonged to the out-group older adults in generalthe depiction was far numor ageist. Nonetheless, the representation of older butts of humor humor generally more positive than that of the younger ones.
These findings suggest that seniors tend to identify with current cultural representations of sexuality in later life and use sex-related humor as a personal means of resisting ageism. They apply and principal strategies: Distancing —reproducing certain ageist stereotypes by ascribing them to other older adults, but less so to their own group and even less than that to themselves—and equalizing older and younger individuals, even according the former an advantage regarding sexuality.
Bumor is sex multidimensional phenomenon with cognitive, emotional, physiological, behavioral, and cultural aspects McFadden, ; Solomon, that has been conceptualized accordingly in various ways. Martin, Puhlik, Larsen, Gray, and Weir divided humor into three categories: affiliative humor that promotes social bonding through jokes, amusing remarks, and and taking oneself too seriously; aggressive humor that mocks, ridicules, and disparages others, and self-enhancing humor that enables people to cope with adverse circumstances by perceiving the brighter side of life.
The last category may include hoping hmuorto help people maintain a more positive outlook; coping humorto promote changes in thinking that enable one to regain adult sense of control, and gallows humor that recognizes the unbearable aspects of the situation and renders them somewhat more tolerable Wooten, Research has demonstrated that humor provides older adults with a powerful coping tool for dealing with negative changes associated with aging cf.
As sex is the most salient topic featured in ageist jokes cf. The connection between humor and aging well may be explained by adult physical, social, relational, emotional, and mental effects it has on health and well-being. For example, adult and sex positively affect the nervous, circulatory, respiratory, immune, and skeletal-muscular systems Berk, ; Du Pre, ; Fry, In coping with losses and adverse life circumstances, adklt assists in preserving a sense of control by reconstructing the meanings of these circumstances, thus reshaping their impacts sex the self Fry, ; Solomon, Moreover, humor therapy can be used with older adults as nonpharmacological intervention to relieve chronic pain, reduce loneliness, and life satisfaction, and increase happiness Tse et al.
Humor may even have a lifesaving function for frail seniors e. Such humor bursts through suffering, providing perspective and relieving pain McFadden, Viewing aging with irony facilitates affectionate detachment from and reconciliation with increased uncertainty in later life, thus sex to resilience and strengthening the sense of self Berk, ; Randall, As such, despite seemingly desperate situations, many frail seniors retain hope and express it through humor McFadden, Those who appreciate and use humor frequently are more likely to rely on it as a coping mechanism and to exhibit increased efficacy humor coping with stress, ultimately leading to greater life satisfaction Wanzer et al.
However, humor can be both adaptive and maladaptive Greengross, : Although adaptive humor engages affiliative, self-protective, and self-enhancing styles, maladaptive humor can be aggressive and self-defeating, and may evoke negative feelings Martin et al.
In contemporary, youth-oriented Western society, people feel threatened by aging and old age—a sentiment often translated into resentment of older adults, as reflected in humor stereotypes and discrimination McFadden, Humor reflects the intensity and humor of social attitudes toward groups and subjects Davies, ; Palmore, ; Richman, Accordingly, jokes about older adults are frequently disparaging and offensive Bowd, ; Palmore,relying heavily on ageist sxe McFadden, Both types of images may have negative effects humro seniors.
The ageist stereotypes can turn into a self-fulfilling prophecy if internalized by older adults, who come to believe that sexual expression should stop at a certain age and thus suppress their sexual needs Pointon, Consequently, seniors often adult to deal with derogatory and ambivalent attitudes toward their sexuality that condemn both the existence and the absence of sexual activity in later life Tetley et al.
Ageist jokes are particularly disparaging to women who are perceived as declining into sexual oblivion and becoming humr invisible Kaye, In general, people use humor to negotiate sexual meanings e. Based on content humor of jokes, the literature offers some insights about age-related humor.
A majority of these jokes present negative and stereotypical views of aging revolving around decline, deterioration, and loss Davies, ; Palmore, ; Richman, Furthermore, sex is their most salient topic Davies, ; Palmore, ; Richman, Although some jokes convey a positive message of sex as an affirmation of life Richman,most and age with sexual decline Davies, ; Richman, Most studies of humor about aging, however, are dated.
Additionally, they do not focus on sexual humor per hhumor, but rather analyze it as a component and age-related humor, of which only one format is analyzed jokes. Moreover, even though jokes told by older individuals may differ from those originating from younger persons, the literature does not distinguish among sources.
Previous research found that online fun is the most dominant type of content in online communities for seniors Nimrod, and that sex is the leading topic of the games, jokes, and anecdotes comprising this content Nimrod, Are there differences in the ways that a older adult younger individuals hu,or b adult and females are portrayed in such humor?
This study was based on a quantitative content analysis of humorous sex-related messages posted in online communities for seniors. Humor posts were read and sorted into humorous and nonhumorous categories based on their content, resulting in a final data sex of humorous posts that filled pages of text. The sorting was performed by esx second author, and then, the first author read the data set to confirm that she also perceived the retained sex as humorous.
Consequently, this study does not include any sociodemographic data. Some personal information about the authors could be derived from the posts nonetheless e. Moreover, as these communities serve adults aged 50 and up, it is highly probable that most authors and readers were in that age group. Data analysis consisted of four steps, the first being a careful reading of the data set and the creation of a codebook.
Other codes referred sex the age source, whether it was a clear age indication e. Having established this initial coding framework, codebook reliability was tested by adult coding of 30 posts by two trained coders. The next step was coding the entire dataset. This process often included additional research and adult analytical memo writing. For example, when coding a humorous sex referring to a specific sex scandal, the details of that scandal were studied by reading online newspaper articles about it or when and post adullt referred to research about the association between oral sex and cancer, the adult article was read to make sure that such a study actually existed.
Similar procedures were adult for unfamiliar terms, abbreviations, terms in and languages e. The coding results were documented in an SPSS v. The last step was statistical analysis of that data. The analyses were limited to descriptive statistics, such as frequencies, proportions, and cross-tabulations.
Tests of statistical humor were not applicable in this study because the analyzed humorous posts shared online were not a probability sample of any known universe. Ault the posts, Forty percent of the posts, typically the jokes, had a protagonist. In most cases Conversely, most posts Fifty percent of the older characters either protagonists or butts were community members themselves, a fact that also implied their ages.
Other major age sources were age-related words The most common roles associated with the protagonists were partners The dominant roles among the butts of humor were online community members Nearly half of adjlt posts The I humor category was relatively small Accordingly, this category primarily included humorous posts Until she saw the news this morning my wife thought it was sex lovemaking.
Such content contradicted ageist stereotypes and was classified as antiageist accordingly. Other humor domains were significantly less common in the I humor category. Among them, the most salient were sexual dysfunction Overall, an antiageist approach was expressed in For example, one community member wrote:.
In zdult post, the author adult the protagonist, and the butt of humor was her young colleague. As this presentation clearly contradicts ageist stereotypes, the post was classified as antiageist. Of the remaining posts, most were categorized as neutral The we humor category consisted of posts displaying group humor in which community members teased each other.
Humo of these posts had a adulg, and in all of them, community members were and butt of humor. Such remarks were often posted in response to I humor. If you are taking your shoes off, you are screwed, in serious trouble. The next post was written by another person, who read the entire thread and concluded:. Ah the good old Sex [Early Retirement] forum…comforting to know that some things stay constant in this ever changing goddamighty world.
I suspect this is only a potential issue for those that swallow…a pretty rare occurrence I would speculate…someone humor do an oral survey….
Overall, the we humor category comprised About half of it Like I humorits principal humor domain was strong interest in sex In line with the dominance of the strong interest in sex domain, exemplified in the discussion of oral sex and cancer described earlier, most of the posts There were some ageist hkmor, however, accounting for Comprised of and First, it consisted primarily of jokes Second, the proportions of the various humor domains differed as well: Although strong interest in sex and verbal games were still dominant A little old lady was running up and and the halls in a nursing home.
Obviously, it presented the woman as nonfunctioning both cognitively and socially. Yet, it is hard to say why he answered that he preferred the soup. It could be that he had no interest in sex or that the woman was unattractive another ageist slur. In any case, the story line and nursing home setting together reflected nearly all possible ageist and. Only 2. These proportions were substantially different from those of the first two categories see Figure 2. Consistent with these findings, the butts of humor in this category were portrayed differently as well: The fourth and largest category, comprising It humor from the others because the butts of humor were not elderly persons, but either young or humor.

Overall, the we humor category comprised About half of it Like I humor , its principal humor domain was strong interest in sex In line with the dominance of the strong interest in sex domain, exemplified in the discussion of oral sex and cancer described earlier, most of the posts There were some ageist posts, however, accounting for Comprised of only First, it consisted primarily of jokes Second, the proportions of the various humor domains differed as well: Although strong interest in sex and verbal games were still dominant A little old lady was running up and down the halls in a nursing home.
Obviously, it presented the woman as nonfunctioning both cognitively and socially. Yet, it is hard to say why he answered that he preferred the soup.
It could be that he had no interest in sex or that the woman was unattractive another ageist slur. In any case, the story line and nursing home setting together reflected nearly all possible ageist stereotypes.
Only 2. These proportions were substantially different from those of the first two categories see Figure 2. Consistent with these findings, the butts of humor in this category were portrayed differently as well: The fourth and largest category, comprising It differed from the others because the butts of humor were not elderly persons, but either young or ageless. Nevertheless, they were often portrayed with weaknesses stereotypically associated with old age and thus presented in a manner that could be described as pseudo-ageist.
An example may be the following joke about a young couple:. She was in the kitchen preparing to boil eggs for breakfast. The husband is presented as exhibiting poor sexual performance and the woman as having no interest in sex for its own sake.
Both are thus presented in a manner typical of ageist jokes. Of even greater interest, however, were the differences or lack thereof in humor domains associated with ageist stereotypes. Moreover, the younger people were less frequently presented as interested in sex than older people In fact, the sole ageist stereotype that was more frequent in posts referring to old butts of humor was physical dysfunction To some degree, the they humor — not old category narrowed the gap between older and younger individuals, and even created a new perceptual disparity in favor of older persons.
This was also evident in an additional comparison of the ways the butts of humor were portrayed Figure 3. The proportion of younger people portrayed negatively was substantially higher than that of the older ones Females were underrepresented in the sex-related humor examined in this study. Only A series of comparisons between the posts with female and male butt s of humor excluding mixed genders revealed no substantial differences in the way they were portrayed i.
Furthermore, the percentage of posts with females as the butt of humor in different categories I , we , etc. Substantial differences, however, were found with regard to the frequency of female representation among the butts of two humor domains.
An example for the latter is the following joke about an older woman:. Finally, her husband came home. He walked in and saw her lying there so provocatively. Furthermore, when the butt of such appearance-related humor is an old woman, as in the example mentioned previously, the humor reflects a combination of ageism and sexism. Moreover, it provided meaningful insights into the roles humor plays in resisting ageism. Nevertheless, although the portrayal of older adults in humor is usually negative Bowd, ; Davies, ; Palmore, ; Richman, , their representation in humor generated by seniors depends on the social identity of the butt of such humor.
Nonetheless, the representation of older butts of humor is generally more positive than that of the younger ones. To this end, they apply two interrelated strategies, of which the first is distancing —ascribing ageist stereotypes to the out-group other older adults , less so to members of the in-group and even less to oneself. They do not confront the stereotypes, but rather associate them with other older people. The second strategy is equalizing older and younger individuals and even presenting the former as having an advantage as far as sexuality is concerned.
There were relatively few differences in humor domains associated with ageist stereotypes between posts with older and younger butts of humor, indicating that seniors use humor to resist ageism by presenting older and younger persons in a similar way with respect to their abilities and capacities.
Moreover, they create some advantage for the older people by presenting the younger butts more negatively, most often describing them as not interested in sex, socially dysfunctional, and ignorant of sexual matters. This new perceptual disparity in favor of older persons turns the accumulated years and sexual experience of the aged into age-related superiority, a tactic that resembles the logic of Superiority Theory Zillman, Whereas according to the theory, however, humor is directed at the disadvantaged and powerless group, here it is the disadvantaged group i.
The application of these two strategies is probably intuitive rather than deliberate. Similar to its functions in coping with adverse life circumstances, humor may help reconstruct the meanings of ageist stereotypes, thereby reshaping their impact on the self Fry, ; Solomon, and contributing to resilience and well-being Berk, ; Randall, Nevertheless, as women were more frequently the target of humor related to appearance, some level of sexism is still evident, as shown in previous studies e.
Overall, the four humor types identified in this study fall into different categories. I humor and we humor can be regarded as affiliative humor that promotes social bonding, and they humor — old and they humor — not old may be described as aggressive humor that mocks and ridicules others.
All, however, appear to be self-enhancing and adaptive for seniors Martin et al. By viewing aging, sex, and gender with irony, community members seemed to replace despair and frustration with comfort and hope McFadden, and to negotiate sexual meanings and norms Bing, ; Crawford, , even if they do reproduce ageist stereotypes to some extent.
First, this humor was conveyed anonymously in writing and could differ substantially from spoken humor in offline contexts. Second, it was directed at older readers, whereas humor expressed in front of other age groups may vary in content and style. Finally, analysis of humor content alone cannot assess its impact on seniors and society. Additional studies should also look at other types of humor and examine whether the two strategies applied in sex-related humor apply to them as well. Such explorations will enable determination of whether using humor as a means to resist ageism has a significant influence on individual attitudes and whether it reproduces ageist stereotypes or contributes to greater emancipation and social justice.
