The National Institutes of Health funded a large survey of adults between ages 57 and 85, and the results were released on Wednesday. While some of the stuff they “discovered” was pretty predictable (getting erections and having orgasms becomes more difficult with age), there were a few rather interesting findings:
Men who have sex no more than once a month were 2.4 times more likely to report the sex was not pleasurable. This could mean 1) that they’re not having sex because it’s not any good anyway, or 2) that these men would be having better sex if they did it more often.
Sex is better for men in a satisfying relationship.
Men with college degrees were more likely to report pleasurable sex and ease reaching orgasm than those who hadn’t finished high school.
