And for women too. Chemo put me into chemopause but we still have sex. I am not ready to give up. It's not the same as it was but husband still gets the job done.

I am 60 and I am still very much interested in sex.

My Dw lost all interest at 25, and she became celibate at that age.

My husband had prostrate cancer and that ended sex for us. Do I care? Nope, there is more to marriage than sex. I love him and nothing will ever change that, I feel blessed he survived it.

I too have prostate cancer. My prostate was removed in 2014 along with the nerve bundle. Have you looked at the prosthetics that can be installed?

66-year old female. Important? Not as important as it was, but definitely enjoyable! I had a long dry spell the last 3 years of my husband's life- his chronic health issues sapped his stamina and he just wasn't interested. He died in late 2016 and late last year I started dating a guy I met on Match.com and delicately broached the question on our third date. He was most definitely interested! We had to wait till he recovered from two scheduled surgeries right after that (aneurysm repair and a second knee replacement) but it's good to be back "at it" again. I enjoy his company and probably would have continued dating if for some reason sex was no longer a part of his life, but I'm glad it still is.

Sub, yes but insurance doesn’t cover it. It’s expensive.

My wife is a psychologist. She has men in their 70s and 80s coming in and complaining about not having sex - like in 10 YEARS.

You see a psychologist for that, I thought you have to see a sexologist.

Drat.

I am on a prostate cancer forum. I have seen threads where the wives have stated how much they love those prosthetics. My urologist's office has brochures about them. So I am tempted. My Dw is against the idea. She hopes that I would just quit. I have no idea how much they cost. I think it would be worth at least say half my house's value in a mortgage.
