Sex can help you stay young


As people age, they may not have sex as much as they used to. And it’s not that they don’t want to or don’t think about it. There seems to be more difficulty in turning it into action.

Sex offers many health benefits that can be very useful for older people, so it might be worth starting to get busy.

Age, of course, can complicate matters. For most, sex is something that takes away from life. But surveys suggest that people in the 65+ cohort think about sex and want sex. They just find it hard to talk about their concerns and feelings with their partners and doctors.

A sex life is recoverable at any age. In fact, it might even be better.

How? ‘Or’ What? Well, men have better control over their ejaculation and women don’t have to worry about pregnancy. Everyone wins!

There are also several health benefits to be had from a better sex life. For one thing, sex is linked to better heart health. It’s good exercise that gets the blood flowing, and it’s much more enjoyable than going for a run.

It can also benefit mental health. DHEA, a hormone that helps with cognitive function, is released during sex. Oxytocin, a feel-good hormone, is also released during sex.

Of course, the benefits don’t negate the complications. Physical health problems common with age, such as heart problems or diabetes, can limit desire and ability. And of course, age-related realities like menopause and andropause can impact sex life.

This is where a healthy lifestyle, healthy diet and modern medicine can help. Healthy eating and an active lifestyle can improve energy levels, aid weight loss, and reduce the risk of heart disease and diabetes.

Hormone replacement therapy can be great for women, and men can see some benefits as well. Men, of course, can use Viagra or other erectile dysfunction drugs.

Getting a cream form of Viagra can be helpful for women. It can be made in a compound pharmacy and applied to the clitoral area to improve sensitivity. It takes about 40 minutes to start, but it’s beneficial with no side effects when it does.

Don’t get overwhelmed by sex. Enjoy its benefits and fulfill your desires, and you will be glad you did.
