Years has impact on man’s life, and not just in a sexual way. Belief that men and women tended to lose their sexual power, just a big myth.
The destructive myth that has nothing to do with the truth. Helen Kaplan, famous American sex therapist, believes that sexual potential and erotic pleasure disappear only when person dies. So, we can enjoy in our sexuality all our life. It is important to know how biology works on our functions and taking this into account, our expectations and our wishes should be adjusted to reality.
Certainly, such an adjustment does not mean that in a mature age we should stop enjoying our sexuality. We only needs to prepare for the changes, and to embrace changes when they follow. Changes must not cause uneasiness, fear, and anxiety. Sexual response and sexual capacity of men use to peak around 17 or 18 years of age. Women use to have peak in sexual performance in their late thirties and early forties. After the peak, both men and women slowly go to decreased sexual capacity and performance.
In men, important changes begin around the age of 40, and those changes may cause pleasure to their partners. Before their forties, males use to have very intense genital sensations, and when men enter their forties, they become more sensual and diffuse, which women generally like and this change use to give them more pleasure. Men in their forties gain better control over ejaculation and feel less pressure to ejaculate. This ability to prolong sexual intercourse use to make sex more satisfactory for both men and for their partners. Research on a sample of men aged 51 to 90 years show that men in this age need more time to achieve an erection and they need more direct stimulation of the penis.
Erection can be achieved regularly, and the above does not affect the enjoyment of men and their partners in the sexual act. Men after 70 years of life use to get less firm erections, but the pressure inside penis and erection hardness remains sufficient for penetration into old age.
