Myth: Your sex drive disappears.
For many, aging may seem like a scary thing. Looks slowly fade away, energy levels drop, family members move out of the house. But there are many myths about aging that are highly inaccurate. Aging isn’t the doom and gloom it is often made out to be. Here are 9 common myths that simply aren’t true.
- Aging kills your libido. Not true. According to Judith Horstman’s book, The Scientific American Healthy Aging Brain, “recent studies and surveys show the brains of those well over 60-years old want and enjoy sex.” A survey of 3,005 people that were between 57-85 said that it depended on their personal health or the health of their partner whether or not they would have any intercourse. Age wasn’t a factor. If there are problems with impotence or reduced libido, it may be related to various preventable medical conditions such as high blood pressure, heart disease, depression or diabetes.
