If we include solo sex, then the proportion of sexually active elderly undoubtedly increases considerably.Several studies suggest that in older adults, masturbation is common. The news media generally ignore sex in older adults. Aging changes it, gradually eliminating penis-vagina intercourse. Not Much." The Bloomberg News story said a new University of Chicago study of 6,000 Americans showed that "the average person's sex life ends by age 70." No way, I thought, so I read the study in the current British Medical Journal. It said that in every age group, people in good health report interest in sex, but that after age 75, because of medical conditions, the drugs used to treat them, and partner loss, only 39 percent of men and 17 percent of women have regular partner sex.

While it may be true that opposites attract, and it has been tried (more than once) and if you found it had no staying power, now is the time to consider someone who is more like you. Susan Kiner: The most often asked question is "Are all the good ones taken? Women who had their uterus removed can use estrogen alone to control her symptoms. One can use a skin patch or vaginal tablet or cream, take a pill, or get an implant, shot, or a vaginal ring insert.
" Recently a cousin complained, "I could have dates every night, but the men down here (in South Florida) are awful. A woman whose uterus is still intact must take progesterone or a progestin (synthetic progesterone) along with the estrogen.
There were a finite number of females in the "dating pool." Some of today's potential competition hadn't yet been born. You can converse intelligently on a wide variety of subjects. You can look back with laughter and nostalgia as you reminisce with men your age, older, or even younger.
It's true that certain men prefer the company of women many years their junior. LTK: Do most people in their 60s want a relationship or a fling? That doesn't necessarily mean marriage, just companionship, fun and sex. Every day a new crop of potential "good ones" comes on the market. ''' Susan Kiner: During perimenopause, the months or years prior to menopause, levels of two female hormones, estrogen and progesterone, vary irregularly.
Among those 75 and older who do, 46 percent of the men and 41 percent of the women said they were sexually active. So contrary to the news report, the average person's sex life end at 70.
Furthermore, the study dealt only with partner sex.
LTK: How is the dating scene different for those over 60?
Susan Kiner: When we were in high school or college, the competition was limited.
Dissimilarities in background, education, and religion top the list. Some men, who are single after being married most or all of their adult lives, just can't seem to "get it together." They don't seem to be as resilient as women. Even after menopause, when a woman's ovaries make much less estrogen and progesterone, the symptoms may continue.
If you and your ex spouse(s) were from diverse cultural backgrounds, had differing family experiences, differing levels of education, and a different religion, perhaps it is time to re-think what to look for in a new relationship. Menopausal hormone therapy may help control these symptoms.
Other forms-vaginal creams, tablets, or rings-are used to alleviate vaginal dryness, making "mature" sex feel just like when you were young. Susan Kiner: I've divided this category into what older men want and what younger men want, and devote an entire chapter to it. Most men over 60 need some help in this department. Talking things through with a mature woman is often very comforting to a younger man.
