BBC 100 Women 2015: octogenarians talk sex and marriage

Five octogenarians share their wisdom on sex, marriage and motherhood to kick off the BBC's 100 Women season this year.

Tin Tin Yu, a football super-fan from Burma, says sex is more important to men than it is to women.

Meanwhile Nawal El-Saadawi, an 84-year-old feminist and author from Egypt says: "Marriage is not essential and motherhood is not essential."

The BBC's 100 Women also speaks to Louise Schwartz, an 87-year-old former showgirl from Jamaica, Jenni Rhodes, an 83-year-old British model and textile designer and Kamini Kaushal, an 88-year-old Bollywood star from India.
