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.
