    Frequency of Sex or ED??

    May 27, 2009

    I'm 62, married 15 years. I can get a good lasting erection 6 - 7 times a month. I don't get the urge more often than that. I think this is normal frequency for my age. Yes or No ?  If not what is? 


    If we have sex more often I can always get an erection but they are not as firm. 


    Do I have ED, need testosterone, or need to take Viagra for better erections when necessary?





This question has not been answered by one of our experts yet.

     Hi! Dave:


    For someone your age, at 62,years young, you're doing just fine,and there are lots of men out there who don't engage in sexual togetherness as often as you. I do not see that there is any sexual norm, intercourse, that any man or woman needs to go by. If you are having sex 6-7 times a month, For most of us men,well,we might just call that sexual over-kill, but then with our eyes green with envy. Ifyou are thinking about using Viagra, think twice as there are lots of Law-Suites against the the Pharmaceutical  Company that makes Viagra. These Law- Suites range from blindness to drug induced deaths. It is quite normal to have erection failures at any age. However with aging the male plumming just doesn't work quite as well,but I would say you are doing just fine. You might want to take the time to better your togetherness with lots of foreplay, all those other wonderful ways to say , "I love you". Don't make sexual intercourse be the only biggy within your togetherness ,but do find other ways to say, " I love you".
