I am a senior citizen aged 74 years. I have feelings for sex. But I do not get an erection at all. With this situation, how can I enjoy a sex life? Kindly advise me.

Joan Price says: Men came of age believing that the penis was the center of sexual activity, and without an erection, sex was impossible. That’s actually false – especially for older men. In fact, men can enjoy sexual stimulation, arousal, and satisfaction with or without an erect penis. Your entire body is capable of responding to sensual touching and oral stimulation. Once men and their partners learn to shift the focus away from erections and towards whole-body stimulation, they are surprised by the amount of sexual pleasure they can receive. Show your partner what kind of touch feels good to you, and indulge in sex play that includes the penis but doesn’t focus only on that.
Of course you can give sexual pleasure to your partner without an erection. Use your fingers, your mouth, a sex toy that your partner enjoys, and enjoy your partner’s pleasure as much as your own. Your sex life can be full and satisfying.
If you haven’t seen a doctor about your erectile difficulties, please do that ASAP. A change in erections can be the first sign of a medical problem that needs to be treated. Don’t just assume that you’re not having erections because you’re 74.
