Any age. The risk for impotence can increase with age, but age does not cause impotence. Rather, it’s caused by underlying problems. Certain medical conditions, medications, trauma, and outside influences can contribute to impotence.
Most complaints are among men above the age of 40, and prevalence increases with age.

However, erectile dysfunction is much more common among young men than previously thought:

It's also not something that every man experiences.

Every man will experience ED to some extent if they live long enough. For a guy that's 50lbs overweight that smokes and drinks heavily it might start in his 40's. For a health nut like the late Jack Lalanne it might not have shown up until his 80's.

This is something my doctor told me years ago when I was having issues with ED, due to performance anxiety after my divorce. Luckily my issue was only mental and went away as soon as I got my confidence back.

Stay physically active. Walk or jog daily, go to the gym a few times/week, or bicycle, or swim. Keep the circulation going to ALL parts of the body.

Then, with a little luck, it won't start until awhile after you've retired. Stay in shape.

Heath..also stress level plays a big or even biggest factor. My lil buddy was broke while I was going through my divorce. Took him awhile to be consistant even after the divorce.

I don't take particularly good care of myself, haven't exercised in a while, and am under a lot of stress. I'm 55 and never had an issue with it. I know people in their 30's who are already taking Viagra. It's a combination of genetics, overall health and attitude. I like to think I'm a manly, virile guy but in reality I was probably just blessed with good genes. On the other hand, guys in my family die in their 60's.

Let's put it this way. Average life expectancy is about 78 for men in the USA. Men should not expect that they will be fully functional until the day they die. Testosterone production starts to drop at a faster rate after 40. Depending on each individuals health, they can expect somewhere along the way that potency will make coitus difficult or impossible.
