Sex: Something to Look Forward to—Not!
According the the April ’03 Harvard Men’s Health Watch newsletter, “As the years go on, the average man becomes less preoccupied with sex; although he maintains an interest in sex, his ardor and desire tend to wane. Most men become less responsive, so they need more physical stimulation to become aroused. It takes longer to get an erection, and the erection itself is less rigid and doesn’t last as long. The ejaculatory phase also changes with age: the muscular contractions of orgasm are slower and less urgent, and semen volume declines. It all adds up to less intense pleasure, but in most cases sex is still enjoyable.”
Oh, well, at least the cleanup gets easier.
