Discover Life Phases

Ageing

Age is just a number.

Sex and sexuality is not normalised when it comes to ageing people, but soon that is changing. Ageing can be a difficult time with changes in your body, and feelings of not being desirable can creep in. This section explores such challenges and how to discover your sexuality in old age.

Frequently Asked Questions

Absolutely. Sex drive does not have an age.

If you wish to stay in the relationship but your partner doesn't want to have sex, you need to communicate and understand what is the issue. It can be that they are insecure, their sex drive is low, or they simply just doesn't want to do it. Respect their consent and evaluate what alternatives you have.

Typically, sexual activity does decrease in old age. But there is no concrete evidence to show that you won't be sexually active then.
