Sex at Fifty

Sex at Fifty 1 Many men will be turning fifty this year and there are many adjustments one has to get used to with this milestone. There’s the dreaded Colonoscopy men are told to get this done when they hit this age.

Colonoscopy Facts

Men are notorious for avoiding the doctor but this is something you must have done because early detection is vital in recovering if you are diagnosed with colon cancer so make those doctor appointments gentlemen. The other realization about turning fifty is that sexually you may suffer some decline in your sex drive and stimuli.

As a young man you take for granted your sexual hunger will always be that of a 20 yr old male, ready on demand but something happens to the male body as it matures. Suddenly you look down and there’s a stomach pouch that was not there before and your energy to go two or three rounds of sex a night has dwindled down to one.

Most men at this age are lucky to get in one good round of sex for about ten minutes and that’s all she wrote. The most disappointing thing of all is that you find it’s difficult to get an erection let alone sustain one. This has been described erectile dysfunction or Low T which is defined as lack of male testosterone. It’s when your brain and your testes (Nuts) are not communicating. Who knew the male lower region really does have a mind of its own?

Low T Check List

Men don’t usually talk about not being able to get it up let alone not satisfying a woman; to hear some guys talk there is no women that they have not or could not bring to orgasm. You can trust that there are many women who can attest to that being just what it is; all talk! Well fella’s let’s take a leap and talk about some of the short comings we face sexually turning fifty.

Yes I like many of you out there have experienced a certain lack of enthusiasm from my little (no pun intended) friend down there not always being up for the challenge. Whew, there I said it. The mind is saying let’s do this but for some reason it’s not being communicated downstairs (Low T). Is it low T or old age? Hell all I know is sometimes I’m happy to just lie on my butt sleep or watch T.V. The way I explain it to myself is that males are so busy getting sex or trying to that by the time we hit fifty we are all screwed out. Come on fella’s you know there is some truth to that.

Women on the other hand who are now reaching late thirty’s and forty plus seem to be hitting their prime sex years. They are not afraid to go for what they want so as men we better eat our Wheaties. Okay so let’s say you are a man experiencing this problem, where do you go to get as we say taken care of? How many of you guys while reading (yeah right) I mean looking at porn magazines have ever gave those advertisements for prolong erection sprays or stay hard pills a second look?


Well fortunately for us guys (and gals) a couple of scientists named Peter Dunn and Albert Wood came up with a marvelous little blue pill called Viagra.


Today television is flooded with commercials about regaining your sexual prowess by taking one product or another so you can be ready to perform at the drop of a hat. At the end of these commercials they run through a list of side effects that may occur from using such sexual stimulates.

You are left thinking well damn if it causes all of that then I’m better off using my hand, mouth or even a dildo to get my woman off. At least this way I know me trying to sex like I am 25 won’t result in my having to get a shot in my penis (for lasting erection) or worse my death from a heart attack. Scary huh?

Learn more about the side effects from taking Viagra that can or may occur:

Side Effects

I bet you never thought for a second you would have this problem and would need this little wonder drug to perform sexually; then here comes the big Five-O to mess up your mind. To complicate matters more some men may avoid sex with their partner because of Low T.; thus causing her to feel like you no longer find her attractive and we being men just let that thought marinate in her mind instead of confessing our sexual concerns. After all sex is what defines us as men so if you are unable to perform that makes you less of a man or does it?


Unfortunately some men buy into this great myth about manhood but in fact you learn as you grow that there is a lot more required for your passage into manhood. Read more about passage into manhood by following this link to an article written by Steven Foster- Passage into Manhood – A modern ritual for young men:

Fifty brings about change and it’s just something we as men have to be adult about and take better care of ourselves. Get your lazy butt off the couch exercise workout and make better food choices. Sex can be great at this age so don’t be afraid to deal with sexual dysfunctions. You may not be able to get as erect as you’d like so explore other ways to bring pleasure to your woman while raising your own excitement and or arousal.

Don’t be afraid to use your imagination.

Introducing sex toys or role plays into the bedroom can bring about the hotness and sensuality to raise your you know whose attention to participate fully in the game at hand. Watch adult movies together and don’t masturbate as much. Save some of that energy for her and let loose in the bedroom or wherever the mood strikes. Even more important talk to your doctor, talk to your woman take matters into you own hands (once again no pun intended) and be proactive. Turning fifty does not signify the end of your sexual activity but the beginning for what can be more exciting pure unadulterated sex so let your fifties freak flag fly.
