Abstract

Sexual function, and in particular erectile capacity, declines with age in men. The present study attempted to identify possible sensory/neural and autonomic factors related to this decline. Data on self-reported sexual activity and functioning, as well as erectile response to visual erotic stimulation, were gathered from 39 healthy, sexually functional men ranging in age from 21 to 82. In addition, four parameters of putative significance to sexual functioning were measure& penile electrical and vibrotactile thresholds, pudendal somatosensory evoked potentials, penile autonomic response to ischemia, and blood testosterone. Results indicated significant age-related decreases in self-reported frequency of sexual activity and in erectile response to erotica. Furthermore, penile sensitivity, response to penile ischemia, and somatosensory evoked potentials showed age-related changes. In contrast, self-reported erectile capacity, ratings of overall sex life, and levels of testosterone did not change over age groups. These findings suggestthat decreasing erectile capacity in aging men may be related to decreasing sensory/neural and autonomic functioning, but they also indicate that factors other than the frequency of and potency for sexual response are important to the overall rating of sex life.
