Sex and Aging; Many Octogenarians Report They Are Still Doing It
It is possible. You're 80 and still doing it. How is this possible?

Having sex later in life is now available for all willing couples. Because of drugs like Viagra, Cialis and Levitra the ability to have and maintain an erection can mean having intercourse at any age. With erectile dysfunction drugs now the most highly prescribed drug in America, men and women can enjoy an active sex well into old age.
Even without Viagra, the development of new penile injectibles can be an alternative for those couples where drugs dont work. The drugs are injected directly into the penis right before sex, and can help create erections that can last up to four hours or more. Although the injection site is painful, for many men this is a viable alternative and convenient for their lifetstyle.
Perhaps the greatest development for older couples who want to keep an sex life active is the advent of surgical hip and joint replacements. Older people can have sex well into their eighties and even their nineties if all of their joints are supple and pain free.
Older folks are having sex right up to the end of their lives, and liking it. The good news is that we all have the capacity for a long erotic life at any age. Getting the sex you want is possible throughout the decades. We can enjoy it as long as we like.
