I know now I truely have a sex obsession. There is a bag lady that comes around collecting cans and bottles other people discard, for the refunds. What many people would call a bag lady or outcast from normal society. It's her only job as far as I can tell. Actually she must have been a real looker when young. Now she's in her sixties like me. Blonde and dresses nice I told her she's an aged Lady Gaga. I work at this place and when she comes around I can't help from going over to her with other thoughts in mind. I would never want to hurt my wife by cheating but this is just about overpowering.

There really comes a point in a person's life where one feels feelings of sexuality that is overpowering. However, it is sad that you would have felt this other than with your wife. However, remember that you have vowed that you will forever be faithful with your wife til the death do you part.

I hate to say this but quite a number of women who are older would quite frankly rather their husband have a casual physical relation with someone else because the wife has issues, UT infections. hormone problems, a mother who hated sex and so on, so she really doesn't want to have sex. So what are the options of a faithful husband? First of all if your wife won't talk about it you need to see if she won't go to a counselor, by herself perhaps, to see what the issue is. Some older men are not careful with grooming, they have let their appearance go, smell bad and look bad. This can be fixed. But you seriously need to talk about sex with your wife. If she has a physical problem that really is not repairable with hormones or whatever, there are alternatives.

Good grief yes people 60 and over still have sex - hot passionate sex. When you're old, you aren't old in your mind and if you married someone you are crazy about, why should you not still be attracted to them.

Ask yourself when was the last time your wife actually showed interest in having sex? Is she ashamed of how she looks? This can be handled. It's just such a shame it got this far but it can be fixed and you really need to find a way to reignite the flames with the person you fell in love with. Start by being sure you are as well groomed and as attractive as you can possibly be and take things slow. Woo her again like you did when you were young. Make her feel special, attractive, desirable. You can do it. Good luck. And a dimmer on the lights and candle light do work wonders. Not too much alcohol though.

You have a wife and you have an imagination. What's the problem?
couldn't have said it better. I'm always obsessed with sex, always have it in the back of my head, specially if I'm inlove. and obsessions are overpowering yes. but I guess we all do our best to live with them. what I find curious Tregg Smith, is that at your age you seem shocked by these feelings you have. I don't mean that in any disrespectful way, I just think it's funny to me how sex is a topic that's a different world for every person and how it changes for each individual with age.

I'm still a young girl, but menopause has been explained to me by many older women. aside from other characteristics, a lot of women loose all interest in sex and become frigid. I'm just saying! your wife doesn't necessarily need therapy, but netgypsy's comment about how some women would quite frankly rather their husband have a casual physical relation with someone else, for whatever reason they have, is spot on from what I've heard.

before anyone bites my jugular: no, I'm not suggesting you should cheat on your wife.

On the average, once an older woman has dealt with menopause her sex drive is much stronger than it was as a young woman for several reasons. She no longer has to deal with unwanted pregnancy, she knows what she likes and she's not shy about being the aggressor. So if you are an older guy whose wife is lacking interest in sex you really need to find out why and once her physical or emotional problem is solved, woo her like you would a 25 year old you are really captivated by. DON'T give up on her yet. (In case for some reason you don't know it, men are always obsessed with sex and probably always will be.)

By the way - testosterone is prescribed for women and our older ladies say it is amazing. Not only because your interest in sex increases but you just feel so much better.

Really? What you just said is that an older woman who lacks an interest in sex has a physical or emotional problem that needs to be fixed.

Really you meant to say that?

Tregg, in addition to making things better between you and your wife it's time to grow some hair on your palms.

Most boilers have a little valve that opens up to relieve pressure and prevent a dangerous explosion.

Dave this is assuming she did find her husband physically attractive once upon a time. If she married him for his money or his mind that's another thing altogether. Our family's older ladies say their spouses are much hotter today than they were in their 20's or 30's.

So yes I meant to say that is true if her spouse is still attractive to her because he makes the effort to be attractive to her (and of course it goes both ways - those pink curlers are not a turnon).

If she has serious illness of course she needs to get well first but it's not a given that older women aren't interested in sex. They may not be interested in sex with their husbands who lack good grooming and have forgotten the little things that keep a marriage interesting.

A talk show host was discussing a recipe for "better than sex" cake - I think I mentioned this before - and he said "People if you think cake is better than sex, you are with the WRONG PERSON." AMEN Brother!

the consequences of menopause are different for every woman, physically and/or emotionally. it's a big mess of hormonal change. their libido can go either way and everything in between.

a man should be aware of this going into a marriage, just like the changes that may come after a pregnancy, if only to avoid shock. and that's just sex drive, without getting into mood or even personality changes. there may not be any change at all! how's a husband to deal with this? no clue. I've seen menopause put a big strain on relationships, and the husbands' reaction to it making it better and making it worse.

I can picture a wife finding herself without sexual appetite making a decision to engage in some sort of therapy for her husband (anything from an honest conversation to hormonal treatments or counselling, etc.) and just as easily picture her slapping her husband's face when he says she has a problem.

From in impromptu survey of our older lady friends and family they say the number 1 problem is loss of sleep from hot and cold flashes. They turn really red, get hot as hades, then sweat and start to shiver. The women who used testosterone for treatment said it worked really fast and they felt better in days. Another was put on anabolic steroids and that was said it worked really well too. The ones on HRT said it worked pretty well but they had side effects they didn't like. The ones who gutted through it had problems for a couple of years before things normalized. NOT fun.These are the ones who would definitely slap hubby if he suggested they had a problem because they are well aware that they have a problem. Just don't know what to do about it. All will say though that menopause is preferable to pregnancy any day of the week.

yeah, except some women don't think of it as a problem as much as nature taking its course. good luck trying to get them on a hormonal treatment.

And it's usually your mom and mom's are pretty near impossible to get to do anything they don't choose to do. You can't bribe them and you can't threaten them. Sons have better luck with moms than daughters though but a daughter can get her dad to do nearly anything. SIGHHH

jaja that's so true sometimes.

but what I meant about hormonal treatments is that they are an option of course, for willing women, and they seem to work wonders on many of the effects of menopause. they are an option...in the "1st world". I did not grow up in it, so imagining the face on the older women who were around me at the suggestion of menopause being a "problem" and taking hormones makes me chuckle. in their opinion, you deal with it just like you deal with every other aspect of womanhood.

to each, their own. as usually

IN third world countries, to the less privileged, menopause is liberation. Also women who exercise and are outdoors a lot seem to have much less problems with the hot flashes than those in climate controlled sedentary environments.

I can picture it being so in certain situations, but it's a streched generalization. the women and their husbands I'm refering to would describe it more like hell jaja, but at the same time just one more thing a couple has to go through.

I'm surprised that no one has pointed out that many men are not good at sex and women get tired of faking it. Some women don't enjoy sex for a number of reasons and just decide they don't wish to keep doing something they don't like. I think younger women may be more willing to discuss this with theor husbands, but for the older generation it is less likely that this would be an easy subject to approach.

I don't believe that older women prefer their husbands to get sex elsewhere, did someone actually say that?

Also, men peak sexually at a young age, where women peak at a much older age, a lot of men lose the desire and sometimes the ability as they get older. It's very individual.

True - there are always exceptions and many of them. I'm thinking of the tropical third world country I worked in. There wasn't a lot of middle class and the working poor worked really hard and even though birth control in this Catholic country was available over the counter everywhere there were many who couldn't or didn't get it or for whom it failed, so most of them were quite happy to deal with hot flashes. They did have better medical care in the big city we lived in for the poor there than we do in the US where I live. Here, my friends who have no health insurance and low income can't get help unless they are ready for intensive care in the hospital. But in the US, as I'm sure it is in third world countries, medical care is quite variable depending on where you live. Where I live they closed the only free clinic that is fairly close and the poor don't have the money to drive to the next one as it's quite far. Luckily the job market seems to be picking up so hopefully they're be able to get medical benefits on the job fairly soon.

EVO so true that it's quite individual, but the baby boomers have really changed things a lot as have the silent generation who just don't talk about what they do. But if sales of viagra are indication someone's interest level is up there.

I've personally heard women say they wish their husband's didn't "bother them" to quote them and that they really didn't care how they dealt with things as long as they didn't catch something. You probably heard that the rate of STD's among the senior population has skyrocketed, particular at these huge senior communities. It's become a huge joke as we have one of those fairly near us and know some couples who live in one. There is a type of treatment for prostate cancer that does not cause problems with male function and our friends from the senior community joke that they're going to start running buses so many men are seeking out that treatment.
