A questionnaire study was conducted on sexual life such as intercourse frequency, libido and erectile function and degree of satisfaction of sexual life in aging couples. Half of them had sexual intercourse and satisfaction of life. According to multivariate analysis using stiffness of penis at erection, erection maintained, and difficulty of maintenance of erection state, there was a significant relationship between satisfaction of sexual life and frequency of erection maintained or difficulty of maintenance of erection state, and also between confidence on erection and difficulty of maintenance of erection state. These values became lower because of aging. We concluded that sexual communication was needed in the life of aging couples, and an urologist should have a role in consulting on aging life.
