Sex studies, sex studies and more sex studies. We never get tired of them, really, and thanks to the Internet we never have to do without. And here at Sex Feed, we read them so you don’t have to!
From the Dept. of We-Wonder-If-This-Was-True-Before-Viagra™, researchers in Australia found that 56 percent of men between the ages of 75 and 95 report satisfying sex lives. Of course, the study found that the frequency of sex decreased with age—apparently it’s easier to be frisky in your 70s than in your 90s—but even by the over-90s, sex was still considered “somewhat important.”
“Men who have partners versus the ones who do not usually have a much different sexual profile and a much happier one," says Pepper Schwartz, the Sexuality, Love and Relationship Ambassador for the AARP. (We love her job title.) “Access is the issue, not desire.”
