Confiding Eases Older Men's Stress Over Sexual Problems
Date:5/19/2010

Unlike women, men found solace in talks with partners and friends, researchers found

WEDNESDAY, May 19 (HealthDay News) -- A new study of older people found that it's a good idea for men to confide to friends about their sexual problems -- it reduced their stress and unhappiness -- but the same was not necessarily true for women.

Researchers at Oregon State University looked at a survey of 861 people aged 57 to 85. They all had sexual partners and said they had at least one sexual problem, such as lack of libido, physical pain during sex, impotence or lubrication issues.
