My Father had a saying I'll never forget: "The worst thing about being old is being married to an old woman". I'm quite sure he found ways of "getting about" Momma never suspected although he never admitted them to me before he died. Let us just say I am sure that on many of his "business meetings" and "hunting and fishing" trips more was accomplished than improving on his sales quotas, bagging Elk, or catching fish. Good for him and I'll hasten to say he treated my Mother, his wife, like a queen. Sex lives on and men still have the same interest in sweet young things they had at 18 when they are 68. Like one old guy said: I can still do once a night what I used to do all night long, There may be snow on the roof, but there is still fire in the furnace..

Amen, adding that even in old age the "eyes still have it."

I always say, you can have a young man who can do it all night, or you can have an old man who knows how to do it right the first time!
But seriously, don't tell my wife you can still have sex past 60. I'm trying to get some rest.

Any comments from the ladies?
Female aging problems have not been addressed as well as male aging problems.
Hormone replacement therapy is now considered a dangerous unknown..it does seem men have only one problem to deal with(E.D.- erectile dysfunction and maybe libido).

Women are more complex(vaginal dryness, HOT FLASHES etc.)which all interfere with sex.
And don't forget energy level and overall health of both sexes.

I'm thinking these other comments are merely focusing on their personal gratification. Where's the maturity..Capt. Jack...and true concern for Momma. All that time that was spent with a "hooker or what ever" stole quality time from Momma.

This article stresses the effects of sleeping around.

Does any of these commenter's consider using that extra energy for volunteering....visiting the sick, reading to a sick friend. There's lots of opportunities out there to improve your community and our world. And the moral issue....sleeping around is still sleazy and slutty no matter your age.
If your marriage partner is agreeable and you are both healthy and have dealt with "age problems"...Fine.

Too much is made of sex.Sexy clothes,sexy this sexy that....The government should allot funds to build Woody Allens Orgasm machine. That way, having sex would be like putting out the garbage...It would put an end to illegimate children, (If the machine was a two seater) and if you got married, you would mean business snd have a child....

Oprah did a show about this yesterday. It was all about sex, age *one older couple had sex in the golf club behind their home, and open marriages.

Hey Captain Jack, maybe I'm naive, but your father might have been on "business trips". Another thing: I don't believe that everyone has the same sex drive, no matter how old they are, and it doesn't matter if they are male of female.

Yes, "here to stay", time could be well spent volunteering and doing any type of charity work.

I dont care about being old as long as I can have an "older woman" for sex and I can still get it up to satisfy her. I have ALWAYS preferred "older women". Others may say "UGH !!!" but that is their loss. Ladies, I will take all the sex you can give out. I enjoy having sex with them and performing oral sex on them and making them enjoy it. Older people need sex and affection also. I read recently that in Orlando, a Gynecologist near a retirement home has several "older women" in their 70's and 80's as patients and had at one point treated a lady in her 90's for having an STD. Obviously she is very sexually active. More power to those ladies. Here in Keystone Heights, I have not been able to locate any of those ladies who are interested. But....I am looking.

I am a male past 60 and have no sex drive. I attribute to all the drugs I take, like the antidepressants, the psychotic, the opiates. Sheese, it does not even get hard anymore. To be 25 again!

Yes, medications do a real number on the body, especially as you get older.

Most older women can not perform with a vibrant man in his 60s.

Most woman at 60 and older are out of shape, most can not sleep and sex hurts.

They need to get out and get some exercise and sunshine and eat the right foods and get good sleep.

The worse trap is to sit around and eat and watch TV.

Jack Lalanne had it right....get up and move around and then your libido will kick in.

I'm 61, retired and have been married for almost 37 years. I have a very strong sex drive and need no help to achieve and sustain a erection for as long as I need it. My wife, who I love dearly has lost her sex drive. Furthermore, she doesn't feel it's important to have sex and tells me we're too old, etc. The discussion is not a 2 way street anymore so i just take care of myself, which isn't as satisfying as it is when she is involved too....

Sex should start at 13 and end at 30. NOBODY WANTS TO DO A 60 YEAR OLD FLABBAG! Accept it, you're old! You can move on to better things. Don't spend your entire elderlyness trying to feel young. Seriously.
