Because aging is frequently associated with medical conditions likely to impair sexual performance, there is a tendency to view sexual changes in older men as the result of pathology, overlooking the effect of natural processes of aging in sexuality. This article discusses the sexual responses in the aging male, the physiologic aspects of aging male sexuality, psychologic aspects of aging and sexuality, studies on aging male sexuality, a psychobiological investigation of healthy aging men, medical causes of erectile dysfunction in elderly men, and the effect of medications on the sexual functioning of aging men.
