They say 50 is the new 40 but, for Gaynor Evans, age is almost irrelevant - especially when it comes to life in the bedroom.

Talking to Julia Hartley-Brewer on talkRADIO, the 56-year-old, a twice-divorced mother of four and a grandmother, debunked the theory that online dating is a young woman's game.

In fact, she admitted she has been on more than 100 dates via Tinder

"It's just the only way you can go really now," said Evans of her online dating experiences. "I think going out and meeting people is very old hat. I decided to try another tack."

That new tack is the popular online dating app, Tinder. Having already tried her hand at various other online dating apps, Evans believes this is the best bet for the modern older woman.

"All of a sudden, your husband's dumped you, you're on your own, you're older, and you've suddenly got nowhere to go for sex," she added. "You have to think outside the box, which is where all these apps come in."

She is not afraid to open up about her experiences either, saying, "I've been perpetually single for six or seven years now. I've been on over a hundred dates...some of them have progressed to the other side of things."

But what exactly is Evans' end game here? "You do get emotionally attached to these young men, there's no doubt, but you have to measure it. People ask me all the time, 'Do you not want to keep them?' I'm borrowing them perhaps, but the joy outweighs the negativity."

Despite what many may think about her exploits, Evans actually has a fairly strong message that she wants to get across to the public. "What I'm trying to say to these older women is that you can take life by the short and curlies and you can do what the men do. It's about time we did."
