Q&A: Am I Too Old to Masturbate?

QUESTION: I'm 72 and I still masturbate. My wife died about a year ago and I now masturbate more often than ever (about three to four times a week). Is this normal?

ANSWER: Absolutely! Not only is it normal, but it's actually good for you!

Although sometimes people are under the mistaken notion that sexuality is somehow reserved for the young, in reality, sexuality is part of all of us. There's nothing wrong with masturbating at any age. In fact, studies show that, barring serious health conditions, rates of masturbation don't really decline until people reach their 90s!

In your case, I can certainly understand how you might want to masturbate more now that your wife is no longer with you and this isn't something you should be ashamed of. It's been speculated that frequent ejaculations can help keep the prostate healthy, which becomes more of a concern as men become older. So all I can say is, Keep it up!
