Nicolosi, A., Laumann, E.O., Glasser, D.B. et ai. (2004). Sexual behavior and sexual dysfunctions after age 40: the global study of sexual attitudes and behaviors. Urology, 64, 991-997.

According to Nicolosi et al., although improvements in the health and quality of life of the middle-aged and elderly have occurred in recent years, there is limited information on how these improvements have affected the sexuality of older people. The objective of their study was to assess the importance of sex and the frequency of sexual problems among men and women aged 40 to 80 years in 7 different regions of the world (Northern Europe, Southern Europe, Non-European West, Central/South America, Middle East, East Asia, South East Asia).

Both men and women were asked if they had experienced "lack of interest in sex, inability to achieve orgasm, sex not pleasurable" (p. 992). Men were asked if they had experienced erection difficulties or early ejaculation and women were asked if they had experienced problems with lubrication or pain during intercourse. If a respondent answered yes to any of these questions they were then asked to indicate if the problem occurred "occasionally, sometimes, or frequently" (p. 992). "In calculating the prevalence of sexual dysfunctions, we excluded those individuals who reported occasional problems because the term 'sexual dysfunction' implies a persistent problem" (p. 992).

More than 80% of the men and 65% of the women indicated that they had had sexual intercourse during the 12 months prior to the interview. Among those aged 70 to 80 years, 53% of men and 21% of women reported having intercourse in the previous 12 months. …
