During the last two decades, several studies have left little doubt that seniors have sex well into their 60s, 70s, and beyond.But what quantitative studies don't always show is what senior sex is like -- including its pleasures and problems. Both were in their 70s, and both were worried about their sex life. The wife wanted to have sex more often than the husband.Nerve damage caused by diabetes and other conditions can impair a man’s ability to get and sustain an erection.And low levels of estrogen can thin and dry a woman’s vaginal tissues, making intercourse uncomfortable.As a result, she feared that her spouse no longer found her attractive, and he felt bad about his low libido as well as his short-lived erections and inability to satisfy his wife’s desires.Such physical and psychological problems in relation to sex are not all that unusual among seniors.our first public appearance was in a blog article we published on the Tapestry Blog about dating for seniors titled “9 Things You Didn’t Know About Dating for 55 ”.
Knowing this reputable dating sites make it as easy on you as possible through step by step guidelines.It had been a good place for me to get my dating feet wet after my divorce, and I figured with Sue’s gorgeous black mane and blue eyes she would attract an immediate following. She remained resistant until I shared that her ninety-year-old mother had told me her single wish was to see Sue married again. A girl who didn’t ‘put out’ at sixteen isn’t very likely to feel any more inclined to do so at sixty.Wanting to please her mother was apparently motivating, prompting Sue to not only approve the JDate profile, but also to sign up for Match.com, Plentyof Fish, Jmatch, Eharmony, Jwed, and any other site with a free trial period and an assurance that most profiles include a recent photo. But, in many instances, those who don’t hit the sheets are asked to hit the road. Sorry Sue, but I am in my mid-fifties and spent most of my forties single enough to know firsthand that there is little physically sexy about gravity-challenged balls and a wrinkly, sagging behind.It has felt a bit strange, then, that the article which inspired Stitch doesn’t appear on the Stitch blog.We thought it was high time we republished it here, updated to reflect what we’ve learned from the thousands of people who have registered for Stitch so far and told us their stories. We are all living decades longer than we once did, and are staying fitter, healthier (and in some cases, friskier) further into our wisdom years than ever before.
