Sex Over 45

I’ve sure been hav­ing a lot of fun with my wife late­ly.

We’ve been togeth­er a long time – over thir­ty years.  Some­times months go by when we don’t seem to have much sex­u­al inter­est in each oth­er.  And (trust me) it’s not that I’m fool­ing around with oth­er women, either.

But then all of a sud­den there’s a rekin­dling of pas­sion.  Go fig­ure.

I sup­pose that if you mea­sure “pas­sion” phys­i­o­log­i­cal­ly – penile turgid­i­ty, strength and vol­ume of ejac­u­la­tion, what­ev­er —  there’s been a drop-off from my younger days.  And it’s not only my own phys­i­o­log­i­cal changes I have to adapt to, but my wife’s, too.

Also, there are posi­tions we can’t get into any­more.  (Or if we some­how man­aged to get into them we wouldn’t be able to get out of them!)  But I sure don’t care because I’m too busy hav­ing fun.

It makes me won­der about those drug com­pa­nies again — this time, the whole con­cept of “ED” that they’re sell­ing.  There are so many fac­tors in a healthy sex life.  For instance, com­mu­ni­ca­tion.  And what about fatigue, stress, and emo­tion­al dis­trac­tions?  How do ED pills elim­i­nate those?

A doc­tor friend is a bit of an expert on testos­terone sup­ple­men­ta­tion for men of my age.  I should prob­a­bly have my lev­els checked.  But I’m skep­ti­cal of the med­ical mod­el – “If your chem­i­cals are low, have we got a pill for you!”  I just don’t want to read the lat­est med­ical news a few years from now: “Sor­ry, all you guys we sold testos­terone to over the years.  We for­got to men­tion that now you’re going to get brain can­cer….”  There are known side effects of testos­terone.

I’ve heard that weight train­ing boosts testos­terone.  And sup­ple­men­ta­tion with car­ni­tine is sup­posed to help, too.

Mean­while, sim­ple can­dle­light and heart-shaped Jacuzzis work for us.  Call us old-fash­ioned….

  1. Hilar­i­ous and bru­tal­ly hon­est! I don’t know if my testos­terone gets a boost from my weight train­ing, but mak­ing myself as phys­i­cal­ly fit as I can be makes me feel bet­ter about myself, as well as increas­es my strength. Hey, maybe I should try some of those posi­tions you were talk­ing about!
