Anti aging guide

Gender and Aging on Older People



How aging effects could affect the intimate health of older people when they aged

Unfortunately, age-related illnesses affect several areas of intimate health, causing a variety of problems such as impotence, loss of libido and urogenital aging. It is possible, though, to by-pass many of these problems by knowing about the ways in which aging affects us.

Normal age-related intimate changes in men aged:

  • 30 The level of the hormone testosterone is at its peak.
  • 40 The quantity of semen production starts to decrease.
  • 50 The time necessary for arousal is prolonged. The likelihood of impotence increases.
  • 60 Ejaculation is not achieved on every single intimate encounter. The time for recovery after an ejaculation increases.
  • 70 An erection fades quickly after an encounter.

Normal age-related intimate changes in women aged:

  • 30 All intimate functions are at their peak.
  • 40 Arousal takes longer, so foreplay becomes even more necessary.
  • 50 The vagina gets thinner and less able to cushion the rubbing effects. Orgasm may become less intense.
  • 60 The time taken to achieve orgasm is prolonged. Infections and pain on intercourse become more likely.
  • 70 The clitoris shrinks and may become less sensitive.

Many older people have managed to overcome their intimate problems. Researchers say that 6 in every 10 men and 1 in 3 women over the age of 80 are intimacy active.
