I have always enjoyed a good sex life – until last week, when I found that I couldn’t reach a climax. Is this to be expected because of my age?
I am an 86-year old man who has enjoyed a good sex life. But last week I suddenly found I could not achieve an orgasm, no matter how much my wife tried to help or how many porn videos I watched. Am I just going through a temporary orgasm stoppage or have I lost my ability to ejaculate for ever? Is it possible my body will not enjoy another orgasmic moment? Can you help me? I’m desperate.
Age itself is not a cause of anorgasmia or an inability to become aroused or ejaculate. So it is important that you try to reduce your understandable anxiety about this and do some detective work to figure out what has changed since you were last able to climax. Have you changed medications? Have you been taking new over-the-counter medications? Has your stress increased? Have you suffered a bereavement or loss? Have you recently become more anxious or depressed?
