Awareness of the importance of sexuality and its disorders in the aging population is increasing as the proportion of older people increases. Based in part on the author's clinical experience and research at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York, this book presents an up-to-date overview of the sexuality of aging men in health and illness, within a multidimensional conceptual framework. It takes into account physiological, psychological, interpersonal, and social influences. The book also discusses the impact of medical illness, psychopathology, and drugs, with a review of coping strategies in shaping individual sexual responses to aging and disease. The author incorporates many case studies and vignettes, and devotes a chapter to the sexuality of older gay men. A balanced account of medical and psychosocial evaluation and treatment concludes the book, which will be of broad interest to clinicians and students interested in sexuality and aging.
Up-to-date overview of the sexuality of aging men for clinicians, including case studies and treatment guidelines.
