Sexuality and Aging

Sex and senior citizens seems to be one of those topics that the media love to pick up every now and then, play with for a few minutes, and like the ADD folks they are, promptly forget about until a new book comes along, or an editor feels like the word "sex" hasn't appeared in paper enough that week. It's a fad for them.

But for any of us who live long enough, being a senior citizen and being sexual isn't a fad, it's a reality. Our sexuality doesn't stop or change because we are getting older. Our sexuality changes, but it does that throughout our lives.

The biggest change when it comes to aging and sex may not be how our body responds differently, or how we think and feel, it may be the way we are treated by everyone around us, and the ways our access to partners change as we get older.

It's hard not to sound glib about sex and aging bodies. The fact is that as we age we do have to learn to adapt to our changing bodies, it isn't all "embrace your inner wisdom" and "spend all that free time having sex". Although both of those sound pretty good if you can make it work.

The bottom line is that changing and adapting isn't necessarily easy but it is possible and can result in both great sex and greater self knowledge.

Changing Bodies and Aging

Thinking in a detailed way about the physical changes you experience as you age can be a good first step to getting creative about how the sex you have might be different. | Learn more about Changing Bodies and Aging

Our Sexual Minds Getting Older

Just as our bodies change as we get older, and this can impact our sexuality, so to do our thoughts and feelings change with age. And these changes can also have an impact on our sexuality. | Learn more about Our Sexual Minds Getting Older

Sex Toys and Aging

People often ask us if there are sex toys that are good for certain kinds of people. But neither sex toys, nor people, work that way. When it comes to what turns us on, we?re all a little bit different, so despite what the books on sex over 60 may say, there aren't toys that are made for people over 60 any more than there are toys made for people in their 20s. | Learn more about Sex Toys and Aging
