Elderly Problems byBoomeryearbook.com

Putting your partner first is always the secret of a successful sex life, whether you are a teenager living on a staple diet of hormones and emotions or a veteran sex addict with years of sexual adventures, literally, under your belt. This consideration is strained, however, when one partner is more sexually active than another, as is often the case in later life, when elderly problems begin to make an appearance.

The raging of an over active libido can make a couple miserable in the bedroom over years of disharmony but might often come to a gridlock when elderly problems step in and force the less active partner to start voicing objections. Quite often the quieter of the two personalities will make allowances for the other; either giving in too often to advances they feel unequal to and ‘faking it’, or those with the more lively libido might withdraw and suppress their own over active affections to allow their partner extended periods of sexual inactivity.

It is unfortunate that while people are leading an active life, they can conquer their difficulties but as they get older they are less able to deal with the problems that result in refusing to have sex. Some couples sweep their sexual differences under the carpet and muddle through regardless. The smart ones seek professional help but some couples experiencing sexual elderly problems find third party professional help distasteful or embarrassing.

The reasons for an inactive libido might be easy to uncover and deal with if early reservations can be overcome. Those who seek help and practical therapy are often able to make a successful compromise with their partners and find their sex lives enriched as a result.

Some women find sex uninteresting once menopause has been successfully survived. An ability to produce children is for some women part and parcel of the sexual experience and without it, the excitement of intercourse disappears overnight in a hot flush! Men might be simply uninterested in sex in later life although their wives continue to jump through hoops to attract their attention and lure them into the bedroom. The problem is often not one of appetite, but of incompatibility and the dissimilarity between a man or woman and the level of their partner’s sexual performance one of poor matchmaking rather than unrequited raging lust.

Whatever the reason behind the problem, elderly problems certainly do not help in the quest for a solution and it should be understood that sexual activity is in no way inhibited by age, provided both partners are healthy. It is a fact that many elderly people are lured into unfortunate and even dangerous sexual liaisons in pursuit of physical satisfaction when they feel ‘let down’ by their partner’s disinterest. It is also a fact that when some of these elderly thrill seekers are being honest, they admit to feeling ‘pushed out’ or ‘rejected’, rather than starved sexually.

Finding a solution to such problems begins with open and honest communication between partners.
