I am male in my late 50's in resonably good health with a strong sex drive. I have been with the same woman in an exclusive relationship for many years. We had enjoyed a full sex life until she started having health problems.
Now we have sex on an infrequent basis...I find my self horny as hell and masturbating a lot more. I still have full firm erections without drugs.
I would like to hear from other "seniors" with similar experiences & how they manage .

I'm not in your situation, but thought i'd comment anyway. I thought it might depend on the type of health problem your partner is having, whether it stops her from doing all things sexual or only certain things, whether her health has good spells and bad spells.
Depending on how serious your partner's health is or how ill she feels, instead of masterbating on your own, would she be agreeable to you masterbating with her there, with the knowledge that she wouldn't be expected to do actual sexual intercourse and that it would be about "you", not her. Once again, depending on how ill she is, she might still be agreeable to a little oral or to use her hands instead as a method of foreplay to your masterbation..... if that makes sense! This way, she doesnt have to exert herself physically as she would during actual sex and the two of you are still sharing some form of intimacy and sexuality.
masturbation is a great way to keep yourself sexually healthy and functional.
I am in my mid 50s, and all is well. some men are sexually fine their whole adult lives. it is generally the luck of the draw in your gene pool, and whether or not you stay active...solo or not.
Mike999 & Tommy124, I've got both of you beat by 28 years, my wife also has health problems, so intercourse is a " thing of the past" but that doesn't keep us from pleasing each other sexually. An occassional hand stimilation for both of us as well as some oral and my masturbation about every 5th day is keeping our sex life very healthy.
