Healthy Lifestyle Confers Better Sex In Elderly Men

The Harvard Health Professionals Follow-up Study has gathered data on men's health over the last two decades. The survey added questions on sexuality in 2000 to what is a semi annual survey. Judging by the response, the Harvard Men's Health Watch says that there are some useful pointers on how men can maintain a satisfying sex life, as they grow older.

Sexual dysfunction is the most prevalent illness in elderly men followed by chronic illnesses such as diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, stroke, and depression. The Harvard Men's Health Watch revealed that one of the study's interesting pointer was the fact that men with prostate cancer are 10-15 times more likely to suffer from sexual dysfunction. "All in all, men who remain well are less likely to develop sexual dysfunction with age than men who fall ill," says Harvey B. Simon, M.D., editor of the Harvard Men's Health Watch. "And men who take good care of themselves enjoy substantial protection from both illness and sexual decline. The secret to preserving sexuality is to stay healthy and to build healthy relationships—and both require a series of wise choices throughout life."
