(and Yes, it's capitalized for a reason)​


Outside of a massive coronary this is arguably the #1 concern as we segue into middle age.

Let's face it: Sex Rules! As a youth we could barely keep our minds on anything else.

Not only did we spend all of our time thinking about it, most of us probably spent an equal amount of time trying to get it. And getting it wasn't easy. Imagine what we could have done with our lives if we hadn't been so distracted!

If you're like us, maybe you had a few good years once you got comfortable in your own skin and figured it all out.  Still, we never thought the carnal lust would wane.  It seemed downright impossible.

Cut to 20 years later and we're looking for ways to keep the lumberyard stocked.  The sex life of middle-aged men ain't what it used to be. Our testosterone levels have waned, the spark has gone out of our love life but we're still determined as hell to participate. It is, after all, one of the things that makes like worth living.

​Erectile dysfunction aids are a booming business with ads littering the TV so much so we have to cover the kids' ears or fumble trying to explain what 'priapism' means.

It's tempting to think that treatment for ED begins and ends with Viagra, Levitra and Cialis. But it's important to be aware that many man can ease, or even reverse ED by making simple lifestyle changes - such as losing excess weight and quitting smoking - that are also likely to boost their overall health and reduce their chances of developing diabetes, cardiovascular disease and metabolic syndrome.

"Crikey! I seem to have lost my MOJO!"

Eating healthy combined with a steady exercise regimen will do wonders. If all else fails try this failsafe natural combination of vitamins: Lecithin, Selemium, Zinc, Vitamin A and Vitamin E. You'll not only restock the lumberyard, you'll think you turned into Peter North.

​On the other hand: Maybe it IS her.

Maybe erectile dysfunction is a roundabout way of saying "I'm not that into you anymore" which would explain all those hours looking for porn, having affairs or spending money on hookers.

Christopher Ryan, Ph.D. writes that "sexual monogomy kills the male libido"

and "human beings are evolved for sex lives full of novelty."


As we well know, men and women are wired differently. We were designed to spread our seed as fast and far as possible primarily because we didn't live very long and needed to jump on every opportunity in order to ensure that we ourselves weren't the last of our kind.  

Times have certainly changed but our lizard brain still holds power over our lizard. 


The ironically named 'Coolidge Effect' is a phenomenon - seen in nearly every mammalian species in which it has been tested - whereby males (and to a lesser extent females) exhibit renewed sexual interest if introduced to new receptive sexual partners, even after refusing sex from prior but still available sexual partners.

The term is attributed to an old joke about Calvin Coolidge when he was President. The President and Mrs. Coolidge were being shown [separately] around an experimental government farm. When Mrs. Coolidge came to the chicken yard she noticed that a rooster was mating very frequently. She asked the attendant how often that happened and was told, “Dozens of times each day.” Mrs. Coolidge said, “Tell that to the President when he comes by.” Upon being told, President asked, “Same hen every time?” The   reply was, “Oh, no, Mr. President, a different hen every time.”
President: “Tell that to Mrs. Coolidge.”

Sex and Aging

Sexual Vitality

Because sexuality tends to be a private matter, it's likely that you've heard less about sexual change than any other element of aging.
