Many older men sexually satisfied in 70s, 80s, even 90s

File this in the "age isn't anything but a number" category:  Older men enjoy a satisfying sex life well in to their golden years, finds a new study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine.

Researchers surveyed about 2,800 men in Australia, ages 75 to 95, and found a third of them had at least one sexual encounter with a partner in the last year.  56 percent of those men reported satisfying sex lives.  Sex was considered to be a "somewhat important" part of life for 48 percent of the respondents, including men ages 90 to 95.

"Sexuality is an innate component of our make-up as human beings," says Michael Reece, Director of the Center for Sexual Health Promotion at Indiana University, who was not affiliated with the study. "We're sexual beings from birth until death."

The study did find that sexual activity decreased with age; study participants in their 70s had more sex than their peers in their 90s. Indeed, medical factors including decreased testosterone levels, prostate cancer, diabetes, hypertension, and depression were all associated with an absence of sexual activity among the men surveyed.

Plus, social factors such as having a partner who is not interested in sex, or not having a partner at all, were also found to limit a person's prospects for sex later in life.

"Men who have partners versus the ones who do not usually have a much different sexual profile and a much happier one," says Pepper Schwartz, the Sexuality, Love and Relationship Ambassador for the AARP. "Access is the issue, not desire."

The annals study affirms what Reece and his team discovered back in October after looking in to the sexual behaviors of older Americans. In a study funded by Church and Dwight, the company that makes Trojan condoms, they found that as many as 30 percent of Americans were sexually active in to their 80s. Both studies are part of a growing body of research looking at sex in a population often overlooked or thought of as asexual.

"As a society we don't really endorse the idea of older people looking for or finding sexual partners," says Reece.

Schwartz agrees and says an older person wanting to develop a sex life should feel empowered to start a new relationship.

"The hardest person to seduce is yourself," says Schwartz. "You have to get in to the right mindset, get over yourself and think that you are desirable. And once you do that... someone else will think that too."

      I am a male in his late 60s. I still having functioning plumbing and look like I'm in my 50s with no front porch, dunlop, significant wrinkling, or severe loss of muscularity. The problem is that too many females in my age group do not retain their female structure. Most turn into blobs, look like men (with those helmet haircuts), or lose their feminine features. It's indeed tough finding a partner that one is really attracted to in these twilight years. BTW, don't give me any crap about emotional or non physical connections. Physical attraction (chemistry) is always a prerequisite to romance!

      I'm not old, but do have this to say in answer to the "Ewww". Want an "eww"?

      *Next time you kiss somebody and stick your tongue into their skull, imagine that the only difference between how they look now and a hundred years from now is the flesh between your tongue and their bones.

      *Next time you "do it", same thing. You're basically just penetrating the fleshy walls of their pelvic bones.

      We're all a bunch of walking dead people doing the dirty with each other's bones.

      Joe in Colorado - brilliant and the truth as well as a wonderful image if you ever panic that lust has eaten us animals up. We still carry around a lot of that baggage from our animal days, and it's a real drag if you're trying to reach a spiritual orbit. I put it away in my late 60s because I never really had a steady partner - never mind a lover - got tired of running around just to satisfy my promiscuity, and besides, God threated to castrate me if I didn't wise up - finally!

      Getting divorced from your right hand involves no legal fees, phony accusations, court costs, or court-ordered judgments. But as soon as you even become interested in someone else, you take your life in your hands, and hand over all your legal rights to someone else. As long as we have a legal system that treats harmless socialization in such a predatory or criminalizing way, we will never be able to convince the people of Afghanistan or Iraq (and a growing list of other countries) that we are fighting to give them freedom. They don't want the kind of freedom we have here in America. They will fight to resist it, not because they are ignorant of the American way of life, but because they know all too well what it is. They don't believe our propaganda, because it is so far-removed from reality, and it is only our own leaders who believe it. If we want to end these wars quickly and on anything close to favorable terms, we'd better wake up fast and stop criminalizing love. We'd better knock off the growing Orwellian social estrangement within our entire society. We'd better stop the blurring of the definitions as to what is only objectionable but entirely legal behavior, as opposed to what is objectionable and illegal, and we'd better stop prosecuting anything and everything that anyone considers objectionable. We'd better stop giving estranged spouses and ex-lovers and malicious con-artists the right to legislate on a dime. Otherwise we will be asking our military to fight and risk their lives, or lay down their lives, in order to defend a freedom which no longer exists. We will also be asking our brave men in uniform to fight to protect a society which has apparently decided not to do away with the poison of racism, but rather to replace race-bigotry with age-bigotry – the new taxpayer-funded prejudice, courtesy of public education, all paid for by old fogies who wouldn't be allowed past the reception desk at one of these hate-speech factories. Look, in order for America to even come close to winning these wars, we need to rebuild our society into one that is both worth fighting for, and worth living in. And we need to do that now, by all means necessary. The failed social experiments do not deserve to be supported by tax dollars forever. And failed social experiments add up to a failed society, which rules out such concepts as respect for elders. In all the advancing economies of the world – the tigers of Asia – older people and the national culture are generally treated with the same type of respect that we Americans seem to reserve for brainless athletes and the rest of the national unkultur. That could be why we are no longer an advancing economy – we are printing money to try to rescue a sinking ship, because our political leaders lack the guts to do what needs to be done.

      "Jealous much" -the wife. But really, on a serious note (still the wife) I have spoken to several various girls who had older fathers and said they wouldn't have traded the quality time they had with their fathers for anything. While my friend's husbands are working day and night to save money to retire, my husband spends as much time with us as possible. Yes he is going to be older when our daughter graduates (which is a long time from now), but I don't know about you, but my grandfather is still very much alive and well and was much older when I graduated. I have a great relationship with him. And my husband will be able to retire while I work and spend lots of time with my daughter as she grows up. I'm sorry, but I couldn't NOT respond to you comment. Plus, somebody has to stick up for the other people in similar situation, because they do exist. Join the club and go find yourself a cougar! 😉

      Do you mean "they're paid"? Speaking of college, or anything else that requires money, I have this to say to you: If you don't like old guys, then don't accept any cash or change that has any pictures of old guys on it, and don't ever ask an older employer for a job. As to the writer who said that the only reason females get involved with older guys is for the money, I have news for you: 96% of females get involved with older guys. Those who never do, get involved only with each other. Replace the word "older" with "Black", and you will see how blatant shockingly bigoted age-ism has become. Would these anti-elder comments be tolerated, or even permitted to be posted, if they were anti-black instead of anti-elder, all other things being equal? Of course not!

      In response to the comment below, why would God (an elder if there ever was one) judge people on the basis of anti-elder bigotry? If you are basing the comment about the afterlife on the Bible, read the book of Ruth (Verse 3:10) Nothing in the Bible condemns or even disparages socialization or "knowing" between age categories. Nothing in any of the world's religions do that, except for the new, made-up, statist religion of political correctness, which seems to get all the taxpayer support it needs to proselytize and to spread its fake values of age-bigotry. This is one of the absolute worst violations of "separation of religion and state" of our times

    Older men know what they're doing and have more going for them than younger men. It's one of the reasons I think people should wait until they're at least 30 to get married so they'lll have enough life experience to know what they want from themselves and their partner.

    My husband is twenty years older then I, and he's made me extremely happy in every way for the past two decades. I'm just sorry that I had to put up with the craziness of dating younger men when I was young and foolish myself before I found him!

      According to Aristotle, who was the world's pre-eminent natural scientist of his times, the ideal age for marriage for men is 36, and the ideal age for women is 18. If what Aristotle wrote still has any validity, then the ideal age for marriage is 2,336 (presuming that what he said held true as based on his own direct observation of individuals who he knew of) but the ideal age for women to begin marriage, in the opinion of those 2,336 year old men who have survived from Aristotle's time to ours, is probably still 18.

      You seem to have forgotten that there are more women in their 60s/70s/80s then there are men. Many of these men have probably been married to or living with their partner for years by the time they hit their 60s. Did you think there was some magic age when men or women all lost interest in this part of their life at the same time?

      Then the reason why young females associate with males in their own age group is for the poverty, both financially and intellectually. Have you ever watched Maury "You ARE the father!" Povich? He actually is more appealing than most of the overrated young non-talents on his show, although he is three times their age.

      Ohh noo Jennay! Kids also get on...oh no... GOOGLE! AHHHH! Requesting 3rd party help on public message boards, due to laziness, is an indicator that you lack talent in the realm of parenting by not getting of your @ss and being one yourself.

      They're perfectly capable of writing articles like this. What about this do you find objectionable, the age factor? It couldn't be anything else – otherwise you'd be objecting to every form of advertising, and to the proceedings of the US Senate (remember 1999) and to the course content which 12 year olds and younger are exposed to in school.

    Being Confident about oneself again is very attractive to others. Wow what a revelation!!! Coming off a 29 year marriage w/4kids I had heart ripped out by Ex. Its been a long 3-years getting over her. I see the light at the tunnels end. Feel lucky dating some great women. The Heart will let me know when its ready for "real" love (The stuff between the ears that is). The other stuff is frosting on the cake. Maybe a second family-God willing and the river don't rise....Been there done that. Remember, Parenting is not for the faint of heart

      I hope your pick up line is "What is your definition of marriage?" Why waste time? If she ridicules the question, or if her definition of marriage is in any way challenging to your sense of well-being and sanity, RUN LIKE HELL to get out of the tunnel as fast as you can, because that particular light is an oncoming train. If her definition of marriage is interesting and appealing to you, then go ahead and buy her a cup of coffee.

      It is a scientific fact that if a younger female marries a much older man, her children are guaranteed to be free of life-truncating genetic conditions (due to her husband's genes, at least) that might unknowingly be passed on by a younger male partner (who might not have reached his natural age of hastened mortality yet). In America, we have been breeding for stupidity, by ruling out men on the basis of age. What we ought to be doing, once we realize what we have done to our country, and how far we have to go to catch up with the rest of the world, is breeding for intelligence and good disposition. Then the females will start disqualifying potential husbands on the basis of the male stupidity factor rather than the male age factor. But that will never happen as long as the public schools are run the way they are.

    I am a 65 year old woman, single. My very good close friend is a 62 year old man. Do we look like we did at 30, of course not, but when we have the opportunity to share a few days (or nights) together we make love like no 30 year old has ever conceived of. Sometimes 3 or 4 times a night. No drugs required. Eat your heart out little tight bodied kiddies!

    Having slept with women who were in their teens, twenties, thirties, forties, and fifties (an I was also at those ages at the time), I believe that a woman in her forties is sensually most incredible of all. You younger women are smart and lovely, but imagine how much smarter you will be in ten or twenty years. Imagine yourself, but twice as charming and three times as wise as you are now. You younger women are just opening buds, but the full flower of womanhood is just wonderful.
