First of all, I am writing this article for those who decide to forget about sex due to failures in bed or in a relationship. Unfortunately, as practice shows, men face this problem quite often. Instead of living a full life, many decide: There is no sex after 60! Of course, they are wrong!!!
Any relatively healthy person needs an intimate life. It doesn’t matter how old a man is, 40 or 90. Moreover, according to scientific research, people who continue having sex while getting older live longer than others. Today, I’ll try to debunk the most popular myths about sex after 60.
Myth # 1: Men after 60 are not interested in sex
In fact, everything is very individual. Some people lose interest in sex even earlier, as soon as at the age of 30. However, most often, the issue lies in physical or mental problems.
Sex after 60 happens in both men and women. That’s absolutely normal. Many continue making love at 80, and at 90, and until death. Furthermore, elderly might be more sexually healthy than the younger generation. Young people spend too much time sitting at the computer, and this negatively affects potency.
According to world statistics, 60-70% of men aged 60 years and older live an active sexual life.
Moreover, now, with the rise of life expectancy, men over the age of 70 marry young women and have children. While a woman sooner or later cannot conceive and give birth, a man can become a father literally at any age.
Myth # 2: You can resume sexual activity anytime
Unfortunately, after a long break, you can achieve this only with psychological support, and, most often, with the mandatory use of stimulating erection drugs.
Sex is an exercise that requires regular training.
Although sex after 60 is possible, over the years, hormonal changes occur in the body that inhibit sexual function. In addition, vascular pathologies often arise, not allowing you to achieve a normal erection and enjoy sex.
At the same time, sex is pleasure, and pleasure is endorphins, which affect the quality and duration of life. Also, by the age of 70, many men lose their partners and become lonely. Accordingly, they seek attention, warmth, care and physical intimacy.
Myth # 3: You won’t be able to improve erection and have sex after 60
For many men, the lack of an erection means a complete finale of sexual life. But now this is a completely solvable problem. Modern medicine has great potential. Having correctly assessed the hormonal background, any patient, regardless of his age, can get a proper corrective therapy. Taking medications and following other doctors’ advice will help improve libido and erection quality.
Myth # 4: High blood pressure and orgasm are incompatible
Many older men have fears of complications due to high blood pressure. Of course, such a risk exists. However, do not worry. Just try to contact specialists such as a cardiologist and an urologist in order to undergo certain exams and, if necessary, start the treatment.
One more important point. If a man notices problems with getting or keeping an erection already at the age of 40-45 years, he should think of it. This is the first warning that after 5-10 years erectile dysfunction may worsen, and diseases of the cardiovascular system will develop. To enjoy life and sex after 60, maintain your health while you are still full of energy.
