    I would say, when the doctor tells you that your heart is too frail for the Viagra!

      No age is too old.  Their might be age-related reasons not to, but that is not age per se.

    I would say that if anything comes up between us we should grab the opportunity with both hands !  Whether old or young big_smile

    How old is too old to be having sex? There is no age that is too old, if one is capable of handling the deed. hmm

      So you agree with me then Cagsil? hmm

        Cagsilposted 14 years agoin reply to this

        Not really. I'm not one for listening to doctors nor am I in need of assistance to get an erection. hmm So, no I do not agree. If a person dies having sex and even knew they would before hand or that it was a possibility, then it boils down to a choice.

        If they cannot get it up, then having sex isn't an option anyways.

    Use it or lose it.  If you still get horny on memories of how you used to be able to "do all night what it now takes you all night to do," you've still got it.  Hasn't it been said that "sex is mostly in the mind."   That's about as far as it gets with me these days- the mind.  My darling and I have had separate bedrooms for the past decade at least so what's the option...Solo sex.  It doesn't really make you go blind.

    My Grandfather used to complain about not getting his share at age 103... yikes
    He reckoned arousal had nothing to do with pills or impotions...
    "It's in your mind if you're fit as a buck rat!" hmm
    He used to say. "If you Know what your thinking about!" roll
    He reckoned the other problem wasn't his performance... It was the fact that all the good looking women had died and he found their daughters were too immature! lol

    Exactly - use it or lose it!  It is like anything else in life, practice makes perfect, and if you stop practicing it, you will be no good at it!

    I believe having sex is a gift we should utilize until we keel over - or at the very least are too old to remember how its done. I am of course a sexpot old lady and my husband would confirm this...but I just think it is a good thing to do in one's spare time! It's a great hobby!

    There is a point when a participant should be considered too old...

    Subject: Shipwrecked

    A cruise on the Pacific goes all wrong, the ship sinks, and there are only 3 Survivors; Damian, Darren and Deirdre.

    They manage to swim to a small island and they lived there for a couple of years doing what's natural for men and women to do.

    After several years of casual sex, all the time, Deirdre felt absolutely horrible about what she was doing.

    She felt having sex with both Damian and Darren was so bad that she killed herself.

    It was tragic but Damian and Darren managed to get through it and, after a while, nature once more took its inevitable course.

    Well, a couple more years went by and Damian and Darren began to feel absolutely horrible about what they were doing.

    So they buried Deirdre.

    If you can still function, then do it smile. I have had more than one older person tell me that their doctors said they shouldn't be having sex, but said that if they die in the process...what a way to go! My own husband is considerably older than me, and has expressed the opinion that most men who think they need Viagra just need to find a woman who really excites them. Even when people are past the age of reproducing (which he's obviously not, going into my third trimester now), that doesn't mean that the enjoyment of sex goes away.

    Never say die spirit, the mind can work wonder even if the body is not willing anymore. If there's a will, there's a way, only if you stop thinking about it and you surrender that you cant do anything. Sex is only three letter word that it can make a difference throughout our lives, so even if your walking at old age and having jerky motions and always nodding, then you can still do it, just do it hehehe

      Never too old or too sick apparently. My 74 year old father is in the 4th stage of Pancreatic cancer.  My Mom and I took him out for a walk... more of a shuffle.  He informed me he tried to get the old motor running last night.  My mother cringed in embarrassment. I couldn't help but grin; it gives me hope.

      There is no age that would be to old to have sex. I say as long as your alive and your body is feeling, go for it. Sex is the most natural stimulate we have on the planet. I hope to do it til I'm resting in peace. And even after that I will be trying to figure how am I going to come back for more.

      I would say it's never too late. If you still enjoy it and there is no problem with it then go ahead and let yourself go wild. smile the best thing is just to attract the person you love with emotion and pleasure if you would like to say "SEX". But I am sure and I admit...I wouldn't like to die as a VIRGIN. big_smile I want to have every possible experience in life because I ust like to have fun.

      The age at which someone is "too old to be having sex", differs from one individual to the next.  But I think the correct age limit for not having sex, is when an individual no longer has the drive for sex.
