The frequency of sexual intercourse for men with partners decreased from a mean of once-a-week for 3039 year olds to once per year for men aged 9099 years. Erectile capacity decreased markedly and significantly with age, with few subjects in the oldest age groups reporting regular intercourse. Alternative forms of sexual expression (caressing, oral sex, and masturbation) declined with age, in a similar fashion to intercourse.
