Sex Response Cycle in Aging Women

Excitement Phase

The first phase of the sex response cycle where aging women continued to have desire and enjoy interest in sexual activity but this process may take them longer to achieve due to lack of vaginal lubrication. Aging women also produce less estrogen in the body, estrogen is the woman’s sex hormone and lack of estrogen can lead to vaginal dryness. Aging can also affect muscle tone in the urethral tissues which can lead to urinary tract infection.

During this phase some women experience lower level of sexual desire, clitoris becoming less sensitive, and lack of vaginal lubrication. Lack of vaginal lubrication can cause painful intercourse and this can be treated with hormone replacement therapy and using vaginal lubricants during sexual intercourse.

Plateau Phase

During this phase aging women continued to enjoy the ability to achieve sexual arousal after excitement phase but the intensity of sexual arousal is reduced. The length and width of the vagina also decrease in size reducing the capability of the vagina to expand during sexual arousal. The clitoris and vaginal tissues continued to become engorge with blood but it does not swell as much.

Orgasm Phase

During this phase aging women continued to experience orgasm but the intensity of the orgasm is reduced and they also experience less frequent orgasm. Some may not be able to achieve orgasm at all.

Resolution Phase

The final phase of the cycle where the sexual system return to their normal state happen more quickly for aging women because of lack of vaginal lubrication during sexual arousal. Sexual response in aging women varies as some may continued to experience enjoyment in sexual activity, some may experience decrease sexual activity and some may have no interest in sexual activity. Aging women who are sexually active have healthier vagina than those who are sexually inactive. For those that seek medical treatment, hormone replacement therapy can be use to treat this problem.

Sexual Response Cycle in Aging Men

Excitement Phase

During this phase of sexual response cycle aging men continued to experience interest in sexual desire that lead to sexual arousal. Men will always continue to achieve erection throughout their life time but achieving erection will always take longer and require more effort for aging men. Some may require more time for manual stimulation and some may prefer oral stimulation to help them achieve their slow erection.

It is a normal process for aging men to take longer to achieve erection and this is not considered to be impotent. Despite taking longer to achieve erection aging men experience enjoyment in their sexual activity that continues to function as always. Some of the health problems that interfere with their slow erection may include high blood pressure, heart disease, and diabetes.

Plateau Phase

During this phase aging men continued to enjoy the ability to achieve erection from sexual arousal. Men achieve full erection when the penis become engorges with blood but the intensity of sexual arousal is reduced. Aging men are able to stay on this phase much longer before orgasm because they do not experience as much muscle tension when erections occur. This prolong period before ejaculation allow both men and his partner to enjoy greater length of pleasure during sexual intercourse and his ability to control ejaculation.

Orgasm Phase

During this phase aging men continued to experience orgasm after plateau phase but the intensity of the orgasm is reduced. The ability to experience orgasm is important for most aging men. The amount of seminal fluid expelled during ejaculation is greatly reduced with old age.

Resolution Phase

Aging men experience resolution phase very quickly right after orgasm. Refractory period after orgasm is also lengthens and this could range from several hours to days depending on other health issues that come with old age. During this period he is not able to achieve erection from further sexual stimulation or return to orgasm phase.
