While certainly the more positive images of eldersex that have accompanied the pharmaceutical reconstruction of sexual life courses are an improvement over past views that saw older people as both undesiring and undesirable, I have suggested that caution should be exercised regarding an overly celebratory reading of the new discourse of "sexy seniors."

The only hope for change is the coming of 'les Futurs', a new generation of clones with different yet unspecified properties, and it appears that their presence on the mental horizon may simply be a technical requirement for the current clones to function--the existence of hope in an undesiring, infertile world of the future.
