Many people want and need to be close to others as they grow older. For some, this includes the desire to continue an active, satisfying sex life. With aging, that may mean adapting sexual activity to accommodate physical, health, and other changes. There are many different ways to have sex and be intimate—alone or with a partner. The expression of your sexuality could include many types of touch or stimulation. Some adults may choose not to engage in sexual activity, and that's also normal.

Old Men Have Sex More than Women, If They Manage to Live Long Enough

Sex and Seniors: The Year Itch

Millions of readers rely on HelpGuide for free, evidence-based resources to understand and navigate mental health challenges. Please donate today to help us protect, support, and save lives. The need for intimacy is ageless. And studies now confirm that no matter what your gender, you can enjoy sex for as long as you wish. Naturally, sex at 70 or 80 may not be like it is at 20 or 30—but in some ways it can be better. As an older adult, you may feel wiser than you were in your earlier years, and know what works best for you when it comes to your sex life.

Better Sex as You Age

Despite what pop culture suggests, sex does not belong to the young and beautiful. Somewhere between field trips to buy stamps at the grocery store and 5 PM tooth brushing, old people are having intercourse, just like you. But the findings of one recent study shed light onto the harsh reality that women of advanced age aren't having as much sex as their male counterparts. The International Longevity Center found that a quarter of men over 85 had intercourse in the past year, while only 10 percent of old women did. In a country where youth is worshipped above all else, aging is stigmatized.
Horny old broads, dirty old men. These commonly used terms speak volumes about how society views older people who are interested in sex. Experts say such derogatory labels reflect a deep level of discomfort in our youth-oriented culture with the idea that seniors are sexually active. Sex is identified with reproduction, youthful attractiveness, and power -- and most young and even middle-aged people do not want to confront the inevitability of growing old. So sexual intimacy among older Americans is a subject that people don't talk about much.
