In brief: Aging women

Aging women do continue to be sexually active.
Sometimes more than they were when they were younger. The lack of estrogen causes vaginal atrophy which must be addressed in order to have vaginal intercourse. Orgasm becomes weaker or difficult to achieve also. Many times a vibrator or manual stimulation will help.

In brief: The same as 35 yrs

Surpirse! geriatric folks are not sexual "deadheads"! the same issues that create dysfunction in a 35 year old woman can also be present in a sexually active 70 year old as long as "the parts" are functioning.
With the advent of erectile meds for men, they are going to " see alice"(cialis) who actively participates. Most women, due to higher death rates for men, just lack available partners.
