Old People and Sex!
There is no upper age restriction on sex- despite what the children think!
Since the advent of sexual enhancers for men like Viagra, Levitra and Cialis, there is no reason that couples can’t continue to enjoy a satisfying sexual relationship as long as they live.
The incidence of erectile dysfunction increases with age . Often sited figures are 40% of men in their 40’s, 50% in the fifties, 60% in the sixties, and 70% in the seventies!
This is often tied up with underlying medical conditions such as high blood pressure, cholesterol, diabetes and heart disease.
If erections become a problem, get a medical checkup to exclude any underlying condition. Get treatment for the underlying condition and get advice from your doctor about the use of tablets which allow a normal erection with normal sexual stimulation.

In women, it has been shown that menopause does not affect the capacity for sexual enjoyment but that vaginal dryness is often the stumbling block. This is due to the natural decrease in hormones with age. Thankfully, this is easily remedied with moisturisers. There are a wide selection on the market that contain no hormones, are safe, and restore the natural lubrication and allows women to continue enjoying lovemaking. Vaginal Moisturisers are available without a prescription from pharmacies, from retailers, health shops and online. You can also try a range of wonderful water based lubricants.
Couples need to remain in touch with each other. Spend time caressing, cuddling and massaging all as part of lovemaking. The entire body is an erogenous zone. There are some wonderful intimate products available to add a dimension to your play. Try Intimate Organics Melt or Shunga Imtimate Kisses.
Lovemaking can be likened to a gourmet meal that should be savored and enjoyed without rushing to the dessert! As you get older, you have the time for more gourmet meals. Enjoy!
