Sir Tom Jones may not be the youngest face on the music scene any more, but that doesn’t mean he can't enjoy an uplifting sex life. 

The 80-year-old singer has revealed that he is still active in the bedroom, five years after losing his wife Melinda to cancer. 

The subject of sex arose during a recent interview on the WTF podcast when host Marc Maron asked Tom about his vocal changes from aging. The Welsh musician explained that older singers can achieve more control over their voices if they just “push it harder” before adding, “I can still do that, thank god.” 

The sexual connotations were quickly clocked by Marc, who boldly replied, “How is everything else working with the pushing?”

Tom didn't seem fazed by the sudden diversion, offering a refreshingly honest answer to the host’s cheeky quip. 

“So far so good,” he said. “There is always Viagra. A little help here and there is alright.” 

This isn't the first time Tom has spoken openly about sexual matters. The Welsh singer topped the charts in 2000 with Sex Bomb, a smash hit that celebrated the experience of getting heated between the sheets. With lyrics such as “Make me explode, although you know the route to go to sex me slow” the catchy tune didn't hold back on explicit content. 

Tom has been pretty busy working as a judge on The Voice for the past nine years, but it sounds like the talented crooner is still finding time for lovemaking. He was rumored to be seeing Priscilla Presley in 2017 until it was confirmed that their relationship was purely platonic. 

While Tom has said he's open to dating, it's unlikely he will ever tie the knot again after the devastation of losing his wife. 

“I’m still trying to get over that,” he told the Mirror in 2017. “I don't think I ever will, so the last thing on my mind is marriage.”
