Having sex later in life is now possible at virutally any age.  Many senior report an active sex life due to drugs like Viagra, Cialis and Levitra that can increase the ability to have and maintain an erection.  This means that couples can have intercourse at virtually any age.  With erection dysfunction drugs now the most highly prescribed drug in America,  men and women can enjoy an active sex well into their eighties, and even beyond. 

The development of new penile injectibles can also be an alternative for those couples where Viagra may not work.  The drugs are injected directly into the penis right before sex, and can help create erections that can last up to four hours or more.  Although the injection site can be painful, for many men this is a viable alternative and convenient for their lifetstyle.

Perhaps the greatest development for older couples who want to keep an  sex life active is the advent of surgical hip and joint replacements.  Older people can have physically active and satisfying sex when all of their joints are supple and pain free. 

Older folks are having sex right up to the end of their lives, and liking it.  The good news is that we all have the capacity for a long erotic life at any age.  Getting the sex you want is possible throughout the decades.  We can enjoy  it as long as we like.
