Aging is a process that cannot be stopped. Obviously, we can do many things to slow down this process, but eventually we will become old. People in old age, often deal with problems related to sexuality. We are talking about many different types of problems. This is not something that should worry you because it is quite normal to experience such things, but this also doesn’t mean that you should give up and accept these problems. It is possible to prevent and solve these problems.
We are living in a world where the number of senior citizens is growing. This is something that we can read about on a daily basis. Unfortunately, in most cases these articles and discussions are mostly focused on finances, retirement homes etc. Experts usually forget to mention everyday issues which are equally important for the quality of life in senior citizens. It is a well-known fact that the elderly are living beings with their own needs and sexual desire is one of them.
Old age brings certain changes in the life of every person. So, how can we cope with these changes? It is best to recognize and accept them and start solving them as soon as possible. Now let’s see how we can improve sexual health and sexuality in old age.
First of all, it is important to understand that sexuality can be improved in every person regardless of their age. There are some really good terms for this activity when we reach old age. For instance, we no longer have to go to work which means less stress. The life is more relaxed and we have increased amount of energy. On top of that, those who have children will probably witness how their children leave the home. When you have more time and fewer distractions, it is the right time to unleash your passion and creativity and try new things.
As mentioned before, people who have reached old age experience many physical changes and this is why honest and open communication is important. In some cases, talking strictly about sex is enough to become more confident in bed.
Older men often deal with problems related to harder erection. In this case, it is highly recommended to practice certain sex position that will help you. For example, a position in which the woman is on top is the best because in this case the stiffness of the penis can be lower. In any case, all these physical handicaps should encourage you to explore new ways to enjoy sex and experience new sexual pleasure. In situations like this, foreplay gets an increased importance in our sex life, just like oral sex and/or masturbation.
Physical activity should not be neglected in old age. Of course, the exercise should be adjusted to our personal physical capabilities. We should not forget that each of us can make progress too. It is also a good idea to adjust the diet – stay away from foods that contain too much fat and enjoy in more veggies and fruits. Better sexual health depends on our healthy spirit and healthy body. In other words, we should pay special attention to protection of the body and mind.

The fact is that there is only a small number of relationships and marriages that are completely perfect and in which everything is idyllic including the sex life. There are many couples today that are facing different problems when it comes to sexual life. They also experience inconsistency in the quality of relationships, resentment about the frequency of sexual activity, lack of mutual understanding about their wishes and desires, stressful and busy lifestyle, tension, nervousness etc. These are all problems that can seriously affect sexual life and even lead to complete sexual activity.
In case one of the partners loses will, desire and need for any form of sexual activity due to some dissatisfaction or burdened by some problems while the other partners continues to have sexual appetites, then problems become inevitable.
It is very difficult and almost impossible to imagine life without sexual intercourses because besides the strong emotional connection it is also very important to have a physical or sexual intimacy too. But, does this mean that the concept of sex in marriages and long relationships should be related to love? We could say that this is an individual approach. Some people rarely have sexual activities, but partners show their love to each other in other ways. Some of these ways include: expressing kind and sincere words, understanding, attention etc. The truth is that these couples are very rare.
The vast majority of couples believe that love and sex simply cannot work without each other, so if there is no sex involved in a relationship they start panicking and start accusing their partners of many things including lack of love.
In any case, a relationship without sexual activity is unlikely to work. The partner who is involuntarily deprived of sexual attention will start feeling undesired, neglected, unattractive and will often blame themselves and think that they are not attractive anymore despite the fact that in most cases the reason for this sexual inactivity doesn’t have anything to do with these things.
Therefore, in the case of rare or completely non-existing sexual relationships, it is crucial and essential to have open conversations between the partners. The partner who has lost the will and desire for sex for some reason should sincerely express their reasons, no matter how unpleasant or difficult they might be because this is the only way to solve this problem. If the other person in this relationship is honest and loves their partner they will surely understand and they will try to solve this problem together.
If sexual desire is missing due to problems, stress, numerous obligations, it would be desirable for the partners to overcome this difficult situation together and try to reduce the impact of these things on their sex life as much as possible. In fact, the ideal solution would be to try to revive the passion in bed because passions bring only good relaxation and elimination of stress.
We can certainly conclude that sexual activity is an essential part of any relationship and that relationships without sex can have equally negative effects for both partners.
