Sex. Amongst the active, at what age does it stop?

    I'm asking because I was recently on an extended boozing session with a lot (fluctuating numbers but 13-17 in total) of lads in the same age-bracket as me (youngest 48, oldest 61). When a couple of women became temporary members of the group, their taxi came and they left and the subject went on to sex and there was a clear dividing line between those who still did it and those who didn't or couldn't. Only one of our group said it was because he was denied it by his partner while of the others who were active and those who weren't, one obvious conclusion emerged. Sport! Those who had led active sporting lives, regardless of the actual sport, were still active while those whose lives revolved around pubs, pies and darts were unanimously inactive. The youngest one of our group admitted to being the longest celibate (nearly 6 years) of those with long-term partners while the oldest was, or claimed at least, to be 'a once a week' man! There will be no surprise to discover that the youngest was clearly the least fit while the elder member still holds age records for his sport.

    On the introduction of Viagra, I did some clinical work in the SD area with a different, but related, product and it became apparent that dysfunction was directly related to the arterial health of the patient. Smokers and the overweight were more likely to have (I'm not writing 'suffered' there) SD and if the patient being seen was a low-average weight non-smoker, the first thought was the condition was psychological rather than mechanical.

    So I'm raising this question because I'm assuming most on this forum are active and I'm not asking for confessions, just your contributions on this matter.

    I'm still active at 48, and Mrs D being decade younger means I've good incentive to have a go. Unfortunately, this shoulder injury has made it all but impossible.

    However, I'm at the point in my life that having gone a month or so without a bit of how's your father hasn't left me a highly strung, desperate wreck.

    Blimey, a sensible reply from me!

    You left out another factor.... children. Nothing saps the romantic spirit like a full day with a stroppy 5 year old or two.

    Yes but they come along earlier in a couple's relationship (usually) so this isn't the demographic (apologies everyone) this question is directed to.

    I'm 42 and have 2 kids under 6 and a third imminent. I'd have thought, as you say, that this is much too young to be "past it" but the OP suggests that it's possible

    We always found time even with having two young children and been knackered most of the time!.

    They're 5 and nearly 10 now so getting we're having a more relaxed time of it.

    I think barring any medical conditions I'd be having a long hard look at the situation if the sex stopped, life's too short to spend in a sexless marriage..

    My wife says I get narky after 3 days without, hadn't noticed until she pointed it out!.
