How important is it for the elderly
Is the old man at the age of 90 will not give up talking and sex, and “thief” did not die. Roughly half of the old man who is no longer active, or is something wrong with the body, or have no chance or restricted.
Due to the lack of information on the activities of the elderly, Australia Dr Hyde from 1996 to 2009, between the 3 time points for community based 2,783 75-95 Australia men on sexual attitudes and sexual behaviour, as well as physical and social factors that affect their sex survey, and measured their testosterone levels. Survey 2/3 at marriage or long-term sexual partners, 85.9% reporting have had some sexual activity in their life, most people only ever made love with the opposite sex, most people only have 1 sexual partner. 48.8% believe that to some extent but also is an important part of their lives. There are 30.8% people in the past year at least 1 time in sexual life, 857 people, more than half are satisfied with their sex, 43% hope that some more. Awareness and reduce the frequency of sexual activity with increasing age, 75-79 59% of respondents think sex is an important part of life, 39.6% has had sex in the past year and has over 90 years of 20.9% and 11% respectively.
In sexually active older men, almost half said their main reason for this is that the body is out of order, or there is no opportunity or restricted. Other reasons include lack of interest in health issues with their partners. Multiple cross-sectional analysis indicated that the decline in risk activities associated with the following factors:
– Age; – partner interest – your partner’s body limits – osteoporosis;
– Prostate cancer – diabetes; – taking antidepressant drugs;-the use of beta blocking agents.
A longitudinal analysis with similar results, and found that each standard deviation increase in free testosterone with 20% increases the likelihood of sexual activity. But it is not clear whether Testosterone therapy will have a positive effect, especially since the inactive man is the most common cause of health problems. There seem to be a large proportion of the elderly man’s sexual needs are not being met.
