They "usually" lose their sex drive?

There is a decline in the hormones that are responsible for a sex drive, but I wouldn't say that age automatically kills your sex drive. Men tend to "peak" earlier than women do, but each person is different. I've met some women who were racing toward menopause with smiles on their faces because it meant baby-proof sex and no bleeding for the rest of their lives and they could enjoy sex whenever and however they wanted.

I think it ultimately depends on how high that person's sex drive naturally is. For people who merely tolerate intimacy instead of enjoying it then yes, age will probably play a role in it. But, they didn't care for sex in the first place so age, injury and impending disabilities would be a great excuse for ending that part of their lives, if they so choose. For those that do have a naturally high sex drive, then they'll be doing everything they can to keep the ability a possibility instead of letting things go to the way-side and just giving up if there is any change in their drive or ability to perform. That's just my humble opinion.

It all depends on the couple so I said 70 and up because I know a lot of older couples still having sex, but I also know many young couples whose libidos no longer work properly

it depends on the person and how active their sex life is with their partner. the more you use it the longer you have it!

Great analysis!

To keep my hormones in check, I've started taking Damiana capsules, my sex drive has gone back up almost instantly.

My mom was 86, my dad was 91. My mom confided in me (much as I did not care to hear about it), that "the sex was still great". There you go...take that one to the bank!!!

I don't think everybody does lose their sex drive.

My husband and I have promised each other that if physically able, we'll still be having sex when he's in his 90s! (I'm younger than he is, but when he's 90, I'll still be pretty old.)

40s? 50s? Heavens NO! My Man is in his 50s and nearly as randy as an 18 year old. He's calmed down a little bit, but still has a high sex drive. Mine is probably higher than it's ever been in my life, and it's always been high.

I thought I didn't have one (27 yrs of marriage) then realized it was men I wasn't aroused by. A tryst w/ a wonderful lady and I found out I was very wrong. Now I'm a solo flyer and enjoying my toys (thank you edenfantasys) and the wonders my body can enjoy!! (I'm 50) I told a friend when I die if I don't have a toy in my hand get one there quick!!

I experienced a dip in drive when the menopause really kicked in but within weeks of starting HRT my sex drive was stronger than before!

That's false. Working in a nursing home, taking care of people in their 60's all the way into their 100's, I can honestly say that a lot of people NEVER lose their sex drive, just their ability to take action.
