When men reach 60 years old, their testosterone will gradually drop even if they are relatively healthy. Their sexual behavior should not be the same as when they were in their twenties. Having sex twice a week with a partner will maintain men’s testosterone level and help them reduce their daily stress if they also maintain a healthy diet and exercise regularly. Constantly changing partners is not a healthy way to optimize the testosterone level. Even though a new partner will increase men’s dopamine level and temporarily boost their testosterone level, too much stimulation can overburden their cardiovascular system, leading to heart attack, insomnia, stroke and eventually impotence or erectile dysfunction.

Nelson Rockefeller died from a heart attack during extreme stimulation. After he retired from his position as governor, he had sexual relationship with two young interns at the same time when he was in his seventies. The extremely high level of dopamine increased his blood pressure and heartrate to the point that he died of a heart attack when he was with the two young interns.

The better way to optimize your testosterone level is to have a healthy lifestyle and then regular sex with your partner at least once or twice a week. Dr. John Grey indicated that when a man becomes very successful in his career and also has a healthy body and mind, his testosterone level can reach a higher level. If this man has regular sex with his partner once or twice a week, his testosterone will drop and estrogen will increase right after intercourse. He will need to stay away from his partner for a few days and focus on his work to rebuild his testosterone. During this period of time, he can focus more, get more accomplished, and have better connections with other people due to the increased estrogen level. After a few days, a man’s testosterone level goes up again and then he will need to have sex with his partner again to bring down his testosterone and stress level. Having healthy sex with a loved one is the best way to reduce stress and get a good night sleep; and it is free.

According to traditional Chinese medicine, too much sex on the other hand can permanently damage kidney essence and lead to erectile dysfunction. This happened to the last emperor, Pu Yi, in the Qing Dynasty. When he was around 13 years old, his servants brought many different beautiful young ladies to have sex with him. Of course, he had constant new stimulation. By his thirties, he developed erectile dysfunction, which is related with his declining kidney function. As an emperor, he had all power to get the best Chinese herbalist and acupuncturist, but no one could fix his erectile dysfunction. For stress related erectile dysfunction, acupuncture and Chinese herbs can be a very effective treatment. If the erectile dysfunction is due to declining kidney function, then the treatment is not as effective as for functional erectile dysfunction. Balance is the key to have normal erectile function.
