AimTo gain insight into the aging sexual health experiences and concerns of older adults aged 60 years or older.BackgroundDespite the prevalence of sexual activity among older adults and the documented health benefits, little is known about how sexual health changes as individuals age.MethodsParticipants for this study were recruited through a local senior center and qualitative interviews were conducted.ResultsEight older adults (six female, two male) between the ages of 62 and 95 participated in this study. Some participants commented that expression of sexuality changed due to partner’s health. Some identified less sexual frequency and spontaneity, while others stated that they were now more open with their sexual relationship. Participants stated that they wished their or their partner’s physicians would discuss their sexual needs.ConclusionsSexual changes reported by participants in this study were consistent with the research relating sexual health to overall health. The finding that half the sample did not discuss sexual problems with anyone highlights the opportunity for nursing research to further explore this phenomenon.
