Hello #MomentumLovers! I'm Dr. Drai a board-certified OBGYN, sexual health expert, and founder of Momentum Intimacy. Through my FDA-approved condom & lubricant line called Momentum, I help people improve their intimacy and have a more satisfying sex life. 

Some people believe that once a person gets older, they no longer show any interest in sex and intimacy. However, the need for intimacy has no age limits. A person's hunger for affection, intimacy, and an emotional bond with another person is limitless.

However, there are still a significant number of older men and women who no longer have a fulfilling and happy sexual relationship with their partner. When a person doesn't have a healthy physical and emotional relationship with someone, he or she may suffer from low self-esteem and poor physical health.

As a person ages, their body experiences physical and physiological changes that can affect their sexual health and relationship with another person.

Common physical changes

When a woman ages, she will eventually experience physical changes in her body that are associated with hormonal imbalance and menopause. For instance, the vagina takes longer to lubricate and swell when aroused. This physical change can make intercourse painful, thus, resulting in decreased or loss of interest in sex.

In men, the most common physical change is difficulty in achieving and maintaining an erection. Erections do not last long and are less firm.

Common physiological changes

The mind also experiences certain changes as an individual ages. These changes can also significantly affect one's sexual stamina or desire for sex. If an adult person is ashamed of his sexual needs and preferences, then it may lead to aversion from sex.

Also, when one notices gray hairs and wrinkles on his or her face, the tendency is that he or she may feel less attractive, thus, reducing his or her sexual drive. Another common physiological change associated with aging is stress. When an aging individual worries too much about their sexual performance, this often leads to impotence for men and decreased desire to have sex with women.

How to improve sexual health

Aging adults can improve and maintain their sexual health and stamina. However, it requires serious communication in the relationship if one wants to improve and maintain his or her sex life.

The following are a couple of helpful tips on how aging adults can improve their sexual health:

  1. There is more to sex than just penetration.
  • To improve one's sex life, a person needs to expand his knowledge and perception of sex, for there is more to this carnal act than just mere penetration. Remember that intimate gestures such as touching and holding hands are a perfect alternative to sex. Oral sex, masturbation, and sensual massage are also a good substitute for sex.
  1. Keep your body healthy and well-tuned.
  • Maintaining a healthy and fit body keeps a person's body ready for sex. As such, it is highly advised for aging men and women to eat a well-balanced diet that includes veggies and fruits as well as exercise.
