Intimacy Among The Senior Couples

MS Human Sexuality, M.Phil Clinical Psychology, PhD (Behaviour Modification), Certified In Treatment of Resistant Depression
Sexologist, Hyderabad
Intimacy Among The Senior Couples

The general perception and prejudices of an ‘asexual’ old age, of sex in older people being disgusting, or simply funny. Research suggests, that many older people enjoy an active sex life although they may face several problems. If doctors do not accept that older people may enjoy sex, then it is unlikely that sexual problems will be effectively explored, diagnosed and treated. This article aims to  dispel the myth of a totally ‘asexual’ old age

Available research suggests that increasing age is associated with a decreased interest in sex. A survey showed that older respondents had less interest in sex, with 98% of 50–59 year olds giving it at least ‘some importance’ compared with 72% of 70–80 year olds. It is interesting, however, that the centenarians did report greater satisfaction with life and family relationships than the younger age groups. A large study using face-to-face interviews showed 59% of 75–85 year olds still attributed some importance to sex.

In general, the responses showed that those aged >70 placed less importance on sex than the younger participants.There are also gender differences, with the greatest difference being in the older age groups 41.2% of males aged 75–85 stated an interest in sex compared with 11.4% of females the same age, the men nearly always initiated the sexual interactions rather than the women. interest in sex among older men has increased over the last 10 years possibly due to the effective and well-publicised drugs for erectile dysfunction (ED) starting with Viagra in 1998.

Looking  at sexual function across four domains (desire, erection, orgasm and ejaculatory functions) and found a decrease in all with increasing age. However, even among the oldest men (aged 70–80), 46% reported orgasm at least monthly.

What causes the decrease in sexual interest and function in older adults?

  • General physical health
  • Psychological causes
  • Male sexual dysfunction 
  • Female sexual dysfunction 
  • Practical problems such as loss of partner 
  • Delay in seeking help from Sexologist due to embarrassment 

Educating old age patients is an important task. This includes educating about ‘lifestyle factors’ (e.g. smoking, obesity, diabetic control) which can affect sexual functioning—using the concept of remaining sexually active life years may assist patients in making healthier choices. Patients should also be educated about the changes they can expect in sexual functioning as they age, and the options available to help them. Sexologist also need to be educated to increase awareness of sexuality in older age and improve communication skills. A multidisciplinary approach when possible should be used.

Finally words are that senior citizens are also sexual and not asexual due to the above problems and aging factors there is a decline in interest which is natural however minimal interest is definitely there and sexologist can educate and treat any dysfunction that they might be having unless it’s due to another disorder like cancer, or enlarged prostrate, high diabetes, etc.

I was operated for inguinal hernia (which I had developed due to excessive cough due to dust and pollution soon after 2013 diwali) - left abdomen on 4.5. 2014 by laparascopy. In winters I again had excessive cough. This resulted in recurrence of inguinal hernia about 10 weeks ago. I developed mild back pain due to accidental forward bending during morning massage which is my daily routine. I did not take much notice of it. However, on the morning of 24 may, the day I was to be operated for open hernia surgery I had shooting pain emanating from the back of left buttock. I had to be taken emergency for pain management. Mri did not give any much positive finding except degenerative changes in the vertebrae and l5-s1 compression. (that is also due to aging) I was operated for hernia on 1.5. 2015 through open surgery although the left thigh was still tender and paining. The cut us healing but causing pain - though reducing day by day. The left thigh muscle, however, is quite painful - like burning pain - and is very tender - painful to touch. I have started physiotherapy on 13.5. 2015. The therapist is giving ultrasonic and aft on the thigh and swd on the back. My question is whether: i) the left thigh muscle burning sensational pain could be due to the groin nerve that got pressed due to earing of scrotal guard - ill advised by a junior doctor as it is coincidental that the shooting pain resulted after about 4 days of wearing scrotal guard? or ii) could it be referred pain due to hernia that used to press the nerve? iii) is the treatment being given correct? iv) will I be able to travel - going to the uk on the 28th of may and us on the 7th of june?

I have ADPKD and I do gym please suggest me so low protein diet. So that my kidneys remain healthy.
Tips for a healthy diet: High fiber: fresh vegetables and nuts Carbohydrates: minimize intake of bread and pasta Protein: moderation of red meats Fat: moderate intake may actually decrease hunger drive (Olive oil in salad dressing to increase fat intake) Avoid: processed food and sugary drinks with fructose syrup Decrease food portion size if you are overweight If you have moderate to advanced kidney failure, further modification of the above will be required and consultation with your doctor and a dietitian experienced with kidney disease is recommended.

Dear lybrate user, as you are a teacher by profession you might be delivering lectures everyday. This is not going to help your condition. Also, your jogging every morning is not good for you either as the breathing rate goes up and the cough cough get further aggravated. As you may not be able to stop delivering lectures, it is adviceable you temporarily stop your jogging till your throat has healed. Certain things that would help you are hereunder: - Drink lots of fluids (warm), avoid coffee - Take steam inhalation 3 times a day & do warm salt water gargles 3-4 times a day. - Keep some succulent lozenges (sugar free) in your bag, and use them as they would ease the irritation during lectures. If you dont feel better in the next 2 days or if there is fever, please consult a physician privately. Needless to mention, your blood sugar levels are on the higher side and a visit to your diabetologist is due. Take care!

Diabetes, often referred to by doctors as diabetes mellitus, describes a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate, or because the body's cells do not respond properly to insulin, or both. It is a difficult task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (Self-Monitoring of Blood glucose – SMBG). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of Fasting sugar (FBS) and 2 hours after food (PPBS), & HbA1C (inform me) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ Insulin will be needed. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & life style. For diabetes, hypertension (high BP) and many long-term illness control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance. If you keep in touch personally.
