Just when do we stop having sex? A look into Sex, age and health.

Just as enjoyable.

To the young, sex for anyone more than 10 years older than them, is thought to be disgusting and unimaginable, but as they grow older it slowly becomes blatantly obvious that sex remains, to the majority of people, just as powerful to an eighty your old as it is to an eighteen year old.

OK bodies may change but thoughts remain the same, after interviewing many senior citizens I found most continued to have sex, albeit a little less active and maybe a little less often, than when they were younger, but just as enjoyable.

The different reasons for orgasm in men and woman

The only difference between the urge for sex in men and women is that in women, as fertility begins to decline after the age of thirty, and ends with the menopause the biological urge disappears, however as it is not necessary for woman to have an orgasm in order to become pregnant but the pleasurably urge remains, that could be a clue as to why woman as well as men continue to enjoy sex long into old age.

Even through it is not necessary for a woman to climax to become pregnant it is thought the pleasure that's comes from this may determine her chose in her partner, with men the need to climax remains into old age, in fact the oldest know father was an Australian miner Les Colley, who fathered a child at age 93 we don't k now the age of the mother, so as well as the ability to father children his sex drive remains the same.

For your health's sake keep having sex

The old adage “If you don't use it you lose it” could well have some truth in it, so even if its just for your health, men need to continue to have sex, I mention health because of Prostrate.

The prostrate is a small gland found only in men a research paper published in 2004 strongly recommended that men who had regular orgasms are less likely to develop prostate trouble, another good reason for men to continue to have sex into later life.

Physically impossible

As in most things nothing is set in stone and what is the norm for most is not the same for everyone, sex in some men and woman begins to fade early and it is quite normal for some to stop having from a comparatively early age and conversely in some it goes on and on until its physically impossible, but one thing becomes very clear from all the findings and that is sex is good for you.

Nature prepares our bodies for sex from a very early age, the urge and need for sex is inbuilt and necessary for the continuation of the human race, that inbuilt desire may fade but never dies.

Do you write?, you don 't know unless you try

Do you write Story's, Poems, Factual articles, why not let Wikinut publish them for you? have you published them already on other sites? no matter Wikinut can republish them and allow you to double your earnings.

You can be as artistic as you like, the magic of seeing YOUR poem or story in print is wonderful, and to makes things better we will pay you for it, why not give it a try?

Its Must be my bad jeans, Oh wait I wear sweat pants, Its not my genes its my choice and clothing. I love the Meg Ryan clip Johnnydod I want to market whatever she was having, and then I want to convert those to the opposite sex, because even though we know and they might not? They can have sex any night of the week three times a night if they chose, even if there homely. It just ain't fair or even is that simple for us guys at any age and often it doesn't matter how we look either. Great write sex without out love is just not worth the effort for me any more. But If I ever make it rich I am buying one of the first sex robots ever made that looks like the real thing I just want to be able to push the shut up button after words and roll over and go to sleep for once. And not have to here about for the rest of my life. Donnie/Sinbad the Sailor Man

yeah - at 61, I'm so lucky to have a partner 16 years younger. And we've been together for 20 years now. Mind, I have to REALLY look after my body. Make sure it's still attractive. I hope it is (!!!!) - it seems to be: he still fancies me!!

Congrats on the star and I agree, sex remains good even late in the sixties for me and my wife is 20 years younger. She arouses me each morning with a cup and black coffee just before we begin each day with most enduring love making...

Sex is one of the most important things in the universe, in fact it helps create the universe, so keep your sex life healthy be it with a partner or with yourself. Keep up the good work which in this case has an indirect tie to the "Great Work" :)

When I don't know what to say, I refer to what someone else said, providing I agree:
"It doesn't matter what you do in the bedroom, provided you don't do it in the street and frighten the horses!" Would Dolly Ducktail have sex?

Good article and well-researched. One of the reasons I like reading your articles is you do such a good job of researching them. I only have a little 'bone' to pick with you. The cartoon of the old lady about not being able to stand seeing people her age naked, is kind of perpetrating
the stereotype that older people find their own bodies despicable. A body can be beautiful at any age--- Especially in the eyes of a loving spouse. Lose the cartoon, but other than that, great article!
