Patient Comments: Senior Sex - Improvement

How have you and/or your partner worked to improve your sex life as you age?

Comment from: MikeH, 55-64 Male (Caregiver) Published: November 17

A lot of guys (particularly older ones) will get very dry and irritated penis skin. The best thing for this is a penis health cream that contains vitamin E and shea butter. This will help keep the skin moisturized and prevent it from splitting open. Just a little tip for all of you out there. Good luck.

My wife had lost all interest in sex for the past ten years. A year ago we both started attending an aerobic exercise class three times a week. We both lost weight and I no longer use any alcohol. The interest in sex has returned, and we both discovered the joy of oral sex, which we seldom tried in our 42 years of marriage. I may have to start using a Viagra-type helper to keep up with the wife, but senior sex is worth the effort.
