Sexuality remains a vital aspect of human life well into advanced age. Previous sexual history, opportunity, and overall health status determine whether the sexual activity option is exercised. Normal aging is associated with some physiological changes in genital function. If elderly patients seek help for sexual problems, therapeutic interventions focus on elimination or alleviation of physical and pharmacological interferences, as well as on optimal adaptation to physiologically altered responses.
