The University of California at San Diego published a study we should all like. It’s about sex. Sex when you get older.
In elderly women, successful aging and positive quality of life indicators are linked to sexual satisfaction even when their physical health is declining.
Seniors, especially those who have high levels of physical and mental health, can enjoy sexual activity well into old age, which has a ripple effect on other aspects of life.

The scientists studied 1,235 women in three different age cohorts: ages 60 to 69, 70 to 79 and 80 to 89.

Sexual activity and functioning does decline along with physical and mental health as a woman ages. But overall satisfaction with their sex life was not statistically unusual throughout the age groups.

äóìFeeling satisfied with your sex life äóî whatever your level of sexual activity äóî is closely related to your perceived quality of life,äó the study’s co-author, Wesley K. Thompson, Ph.D., told Medical News Today.
