A study of older Australian men shows that they want sex more regularly. Essentially, libido does dip as men age, but some men stay very interested in sex as their bodies still produce goodly amounts of testosterone. Of the 2,700 men polled between the ages of 75 and 95, roughly half still found sex to be between somewhat and very important, though less than a third were getting it with any regularity. Which means that around 20 percent of old Australian men are not getting the sexin' they want.

But there is a theory that it's marriage that makes men less crazy. Though some argue that men who get married were less up for shenanigans in the first place. You decide.
