Sex Education for the Elderly (Portuguese)

Ana Cristina Canosa Goncalves

Although the increased longevity in Brazil promotes studies and new approaches to sexuality in the third age group (above 60 years), low quality of life of a large part of the population, mostly of the lower classes, make illusory the so-called “golden age”. In the same way that prejudice is still present in popular speech, making the elderly feel discarded, ridiculed and treated as “childish”, it is possible that an idea of active sexuality without harm or challenges, often present in the media, start to create false expectations about the physical and emotional reality to that stage of life.
