42% of Men Over Age 50 Masturbated in the Last Month
Many people continue to be sexual throughout their lives. However, solo masturbation is more commonly reported than most partnered sexual behaviors among people ages 50 and over. "That suggests the desire remains but health issues or losing one's partner can impact partnered sex a great deal," said Herbenick. Among men in this age range, about 42 percent reported masturbating in the last month.
