Okay I guess you are very young. I’m not going to discuss my own personal ( wildly satisfying and sometimes even mind blowing) sex life at 63...but just know that age itself is not the reason that some women don’t enjoy sex. Of course, a lot depends on the partner too... unfortunately as men get up there, they have a much more difficult time getting “ up there”. That definitely can change the dynamics of satisfactory sexual activity.

No, not for me, and not for about ten years when my husband started having "problems". I missed it very much at first, but now I have just accepted the loss of any kind of sex life and find that I no longer even miss it, although sometimes I will feel a "pang" remembering how it was with us. However, my husband is a wonderful man and we have a very good marriage, so I am VERY thankful for my marriage. Also, my husband is still very affectionate, so it really is no big deal. (And even the possibility of having sex with any other man is just a gigantic turn-off for me.)

At 71 I haven't lost interest but it doesn't rule my life 99.999% of the time like it did when I was 25.

We are still interested in it. I love giving my wife pleasure, and she enjoys it. I have some ongoing problems so getting to a climax is pretty difficult. The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak.

Itís amusing to read the sexist and misandrist comments from some women here. If a man copped the same attitude, they would be met with outrage.

Well, there HAVE been complaints of this forum getting boring, so it's a given sex would present itself.

Or, we could go back to RMDs and (gasp) nostalgia!

Nope and nope. So glad to be done with all that.

But I doubt a younger guy would want my 69-year-old a** either. So...probably not gonna happen.
Different strokes, for different folks.....you never know.
