Question for those over 50

I was over on the aging board not to long ago,and it was pretty depressing.All the talk of everything falling apart,and no desire for sex anymore.Is there anyone 50 or over who can tell me they are still enjoying a active sex life? I'm 42 and my husband is 49 and we are going stronger now than we have in years.(only have one child left and she'll be gone in a few years) I need hope for the future!

Re: Question for those over 50

I am 15 years a way from my fifties. However, in my opinion, it is a combination of various factors: 1-The daily life problems, 2- The state of mind of the person. 3- The physical health : The body is like a machine if it is consumed quickly many functions will be out of order. Too much blood sugar and cholestrol will affect the sex in the twenties even..4- Life style: Drugs and alcohol= welcome impotency. And the most important is 5-LOVE, HARMONEY, and the concept of life partnership.

If the above factors are taking care of positively, you will sexually active in the ninties of your age...

Regards,

Small Cap

Re: Question for those over 50

I am 54 yr old male, and unfortunatly the body, mainly heart, is beginning to fall apart. However, when it comes to sex, the desire is as strong as ever and with the help of Viagra, will engage in it as often as wife is willing.

YES. YES. YES!!! I'm a 51 year old woman and if possible, my sex drive is even stronger now than it was when I was 30.

Re: Question for those over 50

I believe so. My tests a few years ago showed I had. But my most recent test showed I am perimenopausal. I sure hope I don't have to go through it again. The night sweats and hot flashes were no picnic to put it mildly.

Re: Question for those over 50

ok here it is. i'm 55, my wife is 52 and we've been married for 32 years and we still enjoy sex very much. in fact, it's better now than it's ever been. we're both in good health and we want to enjoy that part of our lives as long as possible. we have relatives who are around our age and they say they're done and that's so sad. you have to work at it a little harder to avoid boredom, like maybe different rooms, or outside, or taking short trips to different towns, just whatever will work for you. things are different, yes, but you just have to adapt a little. try not to listen to people to the "old" people who have given up. just because you're getting older doesn't mean that your sex life is done. it just means that you have to change a little, and there's nothing wrong with that.

My doctor, an internist, is the one who prescribed Viagra and both family care and cardioligist are aware of all meds I take. I DO NOT use nitro and as an EMT I am well aware of contraindications in doing so. All members of local ambulance service are also aware of my health issues and all meds I am on.

Thanks however for your concern.

Re: Question for those over 50

I'm 61 and my wife of 10 years just turned 38. I do not take any med's, ED or otherwise. I'm in good shape and so is my sex life...the older you get to better it gets.

Re: Question for those over 50

Only 4 people who are over 50,are still enjoying sex? Those of you who answered did give me encouragement, but out of all the people who view these boards it's pretty dismal that only 4 people are still enjoying it. Well to you 4, I guess you are pretty darn lucky, and I intend to be one of you when I get there. IS THERE ANYBODY ELSE OVER 50 ?

Maybe all the other people who've viewed the thread aren't 50 yet, and were just reading it looking for encouragement? That's why I read it. I'm just hoping there's still lots more to look forward to .

Re: Question for those over 50

My sex drive goes up and down. 47 years old. Its not like before. Egad.......don't be som optimistic, hb2002 is a rare bird. Sex desire declines with age.

If you got problems with that one, blame God.
