Preserving intimacy throughout the course of a relationship is an important element in maintaining a long lasting, fulfilling relationship. Studies show that older couples who still engage in regular sex are not only happier than their less sexual counterparts, but also healthier overall. Don't let soft erections and lower sexual desire deprive you of a long and rich relationship with your mate.

Case #: 


I am a 67-year-old man married to a 66-year-old woman. We have been married for over 35 years, and until recently, we enjoyed mutually satisfying sex several times a week. I don't know what happened, but lately my ability to achieve an erection has been a hit or miss. Sometimes I am able to achieve a soft erection but not enough for penetration.

According to our respective doctors, we are both in excellent health for our age with our only complaints being mild arthritis and lessening eyesight and hearing. We have not spoken with our physicians about our lovemaking or lack thereof, as I guess we are old-fashioned and believe sex is a private issue. We both love each other very much and miss sharing the intimacy of sex. We are wondering if there is something we can do in the privacy of our home to improve my ability to achieve a firm erection and rejuvenate our sex life?


Conventional wisdom holds that the sexual aspect of a relationship has long dissipated by 60s and 70s, but nothing could be farther from the truth for you two! Frankly, this is largely an American viewpoint not held in many other countries. And if you can do it, go right ahead. And because research has shown that sex increases blood flow to all areas of the body and activates serotonins in the brain, the activity serves as an important function in day-to-day life.
As men grow older, their liver functions often weaken. The male adrenal glands are known to produce more cortisol, epinephrine, and less DHEA and HGH, while toxins accumulate and cause inflammatory responses throughout the entire male body. Prostaglandin E-2, a neuro-endocrine compound, begins to form in abundance, damaging erectile tissues and affecting the quality of an erection.
While you may have received an “all-systems go” from your doctor, he probably wasn't checking for specific functions as they relate to sexual function. You may want to consider discussing this important issue with your physician and submitting to any tests he recommends. 
Healthy Arteries and Firm Erections
To maintain healthy arteries, you must exercise and eat a diet low in sugar and low in high cholesterol throughout your entire life. Both these substances can result in the liver producing an enzyme known as aromatase, which promotes testosterone-estrogen conversion.

When too much aromatase is present, the male body lowers its testosterone levels and increases estrogen production. The exact opposite effect a man trying to achieve an erection wants. Furthermore, high cholesterol levels can leave behind a residue in the arteries called plaque, which slows the flow of blood throughout the body.

Beside being an overall unhealthful condition, good blow flow is precisely what's required to achieve a firm erection and the very principle that erectile dysfunction medications work on.
If you feel that you may have developed some plaque buildup in your arteries, you may want to take all-natural supplements that can help eliminate the plaque buildup for a healthier, stronger erection.
