My bf (60, widowed) told me he's stopped masturbating and having sex. Is this healthy?

2 doctors agree

In brief: Can be healthy

He may just have low testostosteron levels & lost his libido this is not necessarily unhealthy.
Some 60-year-olds may only be interested in shapely sexy young women and are too embarassed to share this with an age appropriate girl friend. You could always discuss testosterone levels with him, if you are interested in sex, and have him see a dr./urologist if he is interested in such a relationship.
