Sex and ageing

When are you too old for sex?

Cecil and Gladys, not their real names, are two clients of our clinic.

Both are over ninety and in good health, they have been married now for sixty-five years. Cecil had a prostatectomy thirty years ago – he is one of the lucky ones to have survived prostate cancer given the nature of the treatments at that time. Cecil has been using intracavernosal injections (injecting into the penis) since surgery and is still achieving strong erections.

Cecil, who continues to work on their farm, says he finds it takes longer for him to get going in the morning, but he continues to enjoy every day. He says it’s the same with sex; he also needs some help to get started, but is glad that both he and Gladys can continue to enjoy the sexual intimacy they have enjoyed their entire relationship.

So what’s their secret?

Medical research reveals that sexual climax (orgasm) results in a multitude of health benefits, these include:

  • Increased immunity to infection. Sex once or twice a week not only makes us happier, but results in increased protective antibodies in the blood.
  • Improved heart health. Like all other physical activities, sex leads to healthier arteries. One study found that men having sex twice or more a week reduced the risk of a fatal heart attack by a half.
  • Lower prostate cancer. Frequent ejaculation has also been linked to a reduced risk of prostate cancer in men of all ages.
  • Improved testosterone levels. Orgasm results in a boost of our testosterone levels which results in many health benefits including increased libido, stronger muscles and improved bone density (reduced osteoporosis and risk fracture).
  • Stronger pelvic floor muscles are important for bladder control in men and women thereby reducing the risk of incontinence. These muscles get their main workout during sexual intercourse. Rapid contraction of these muscles is also responsible for the sensation of orgasm and stronger muscles can result in greater pleasure.

Regular sex keeps couples happy and happy couples live longer. So the truth is, the more sex a man has, the longer he lives. While for women, it is the more
quality sex they have, the longer they live.

If you’re alone don’t despair, masturbation with orgasm is the perfect substitute and comes with all the benefits mentioned.

Cecil and Gladys are a shining example what is possible, if you maintain a healthy sex life.
