Intercourse frequency among men presenting to a sexual health clinic: does age matter?
International journal of impotence research
We assessed the association between intercourse frequency and sexual function among 583 consecutive males with sexual partners presenting to a men's health clinic over a 2-year period. Median age was 62 and men reported a median of 2 (IQR 0, 5) episodes of intercourse per month. Younger age, shorter relationship duration, higher intercourse satisfaction (IIEF-IS) scores, and higher libido (all p < 0.01) were associated with more frequent intercourse. On multivariable analysis, longer relationship duration was associated with less frequent intercourse (p = 0.03), but was linked to higher overall sexual satisfaction. Age was not a significant predictor of intercourse frequency.
