getting. But 43 percent of them said they had sex less often than they would like.

It's not clear if the findings are applicable to the United States, but Hyde said the results are similar to those from other Western countries.

Lindau, lead author of the 2007 NEJM study of seniors and sexuality, said this kind of research helps shine a light on a valuable and often-overlooked side of life for many older people.

"We know that sexual activity is associated with good physical and mental health. Whether good sex promotes good health or vice versa is still a good question," she said. "But if we fail to recognize older adults as having sexual lives, then we fail to engage them on the topic, reinforce positive sexual experiences or help them address sexual problems when they arise."
