Unformatted text preview: Sexual Behavior and Aging Joseph Monte Lindsey Coudon Mike Kirchner York College of Pennsylvania Professor Gingrich November 13, 2007 Abstract In our presentation we will be exploring the facts and misconceptions on sexual aging and behavior. We will discuss the differences men and women have, social acceptance for each gender in society as well as hormonal differences between the males and females. We will also be comparing younger and older types of people, especially the older people as this project is about aging, and we will explore the SEA, martial statuses, how age affects the body and more. We will also discuss how the body changes as it ages, what are the different things the body does in each gender as it gets older and barriers on the elderly toward sex. Outline A.

The basic break down in males and females can largely be attributed to the social acceptance of society on each members behavior. For men, a larger number of sexual partners are looked at in a positive vibe. This shows that the man is either very attractive, charismatic, or both. In women, the more number of people that she sleeps with the more negative light that is shown on her. This would lead people to believe that she was easy or "slutty" so to speak. These negative and positive vibes that are associated with each sex can also show why the frequency of action between each is so different. Again, the more often a man has sex, the more positively he is looked at. The more a woman admits to having sex, the more society downgrades her. Because of the social differences for each sex, men are more likely to over-report their sexual encounters, where women differ by under-reporting them. However, studies conclude that women would lie more often than men about the number of people they have slept with and how often they engage in any type of sexual activity. Another vast difference in men and women is the hormonal levels in each. Men reach their sexual peak around the age of 22, whereas women don't reach theirs until the age of 30. Not only that, but studies show that men have a steady flow of testosterone throughout their system, basically all of their lives. It peaks at around 22, but slowly declines in a very steady manner, leaving their desire for sex intact and consistent well into old age. Women have very spiked spurts of estrogen throughout their entire lives, and even though they do eventually peak at around age 30, they still go from highs and lows into their old age. On average, its also shown that men masturbate 20% more than women do throughout the years, showing a much higher Page 2...
