    Obviously there’s a lot of variation in the “decline” with age. I’ll be 60 next year and I’ve yet to experience any decline in “orgasmic ability and the ability to get erections”. I think about sex pretty much every hour, just like when I was a teenager. I can have sex many times a day, though I’m satisfied with once a day.
