Here are some age-related changes to male sexuality and ways to deal with them.
Age-Related Change #1: Slower Response Time -- As a man gets older, it may take longer for his body to respond to sexual stimulation. Even if he feels highly aroused, it's normal for an older man to need longer, stronger stimulation to achieve an erection.
What You Can Do: Don't rush things. Spend more time on what's traditionally been considered foreplay. Explore each other's body: kiss, caress, lick, or give each other erotic massages.
Age-Related Change #2: Weak Erections and Weakening Pelvic Muscles -- Many older men find that their erections are different than they were in their younger years. They may not be as hard, they may not last as long, and the experience of ejaculation may not feel as strong as it used to.
What You Can Do: For some men, having sex in the morning, when erections are more likely, helps improve their ability to maintain an erection longer. But keep in mind that penetrative sex isn't the only way to have great sex.
Age-Related Change #3: Longer Refractory Periods -- It's common for older men to experience a longer refractory period -- the time until the body's ready for another erection after ejaculation. In some cases, the cooling off period may be as long as 12 to 24 hours, or more.
What You Can Do: If he's climaxed, but you and your partner aren't ready for the sexual experience to end just yet, focus on activities that don't require an erection. For example, you don't need an erection for oral sex or manual stimulation.Here are some age-related changes to male sexuality and ways to deal with them.
