Sexuality and affectivity constitute a complex phenomenon involving many spheres: biological psychological and social. To investigate these aspects, we distributed a dedicated questionnaire, followed by an interview, to 130 elderly residents in Milan and 100 in Monza. The answers indicated that the elderly communicate their emotions regarding the affective and sexual sphere, with different levels of desire for physical contact. The main variables were sex, age, marital status, co-morbidity and poly-pharmacotherapy, the perception of health status and of oneself, past experiences, cultural conditioning and social factors

Abstract

Sexuality and affectivity constitute a complex phenomenon involving many spheres: biological psychological and social. To investigate these aspects, we distributed a dedicated questionnaire, followed by an interview, to 130 elderly residents in Milan and 100 in Monza. The answers indicated that the elderly communicate their emotions regarding the affective and sexual sphere, with different levels of desire for physical contact. The main variables were sex, age, marital status, co-morbidity and poly-pharmacotherapy, the perception of health status and of oneself, past experiences, cultural conditioning and social factors
