Older men… still having sex???
A new study says it’s true — but I don’t see what the fuss is all about here. It’s not like our manhood turns to dust and blows away as we age.
Men who can, do. Men who can’t, wish they could — and anyone who says otherwise is either lying or on meds that sap their sex lives, and I don’t need a study to tell me that.
In any case, Australian researchers interviewed 2,800 men between the ages of 75 and 95 years old and found that half of them still believe sex is important — and a third of these silver foxes are still doing the deed.
That includes 40 percent of men between 75 and 79 years old and 11 percent of men older than 90.
The researchers found one thing that separated the "dos" from the "do nots," and it’s exactly what I’ve been telling you all these years: Testosterone.
The researchers wrote in the Annals of Internal Medicine that the men who were still "doing it" had the highest levels of manly hormones.
The rest suffer from what I call the "T-minus" condition, the inevitable loss of hormones that begins in middle age and only gets worse every year after. It won’t just steal your sex drive — it can make you fat, bald, weak and tired, too.
The good news is you can get back on the plus side at any age — and I’ll tell you how next week.
And if you’re among the half of older men who claim sex is no longer important to you, you can stop lying to researchers — and yourself — and get back in that saddle again.
Then, you can show your own lady that this old angel still has a devil inside.
