Sexuality in an important aspect of human life at all ages and expressing it is an essential human need regardless of age. Society is ageing and people are living longer life. As the sexuality continues during the entire life many factors affect the sexuality in older population. The aging process and remodeling of the life style play an important role in the alteration of sexual needs and sexual behavior in advanced age. Sexuality expression is considered as a fundamental mental health need of all individuals, regardless of gender and age. The majority of healthcare professionals do not proactively discuss sexuality issues with old age patients, and this requires further attention.
