Sexuality and Aging.
Hinkley, Nancy E.
Literature on sexuality and aging and Maslow's hierarchy of needs (which include physiological needs, safety and security needs, belongingness needs, esteem needs, and the need for self-actualization) are used in this paper to identify at each level the needs of the aging individual as they derive from his sexuality in order to provide a conceptual framework for adult educators who deal with the aging. Focus is on the importance of understanding the totality of the sexual needs of the aging individual as the life cycle is fulfilled and aging is accepted. Topics discussed are (1) the definition of sexuality, (2) common stereotypes and social control mechanisms, (3) needs of the older person relating to his sexuality, and (4) implications for the adult educator.
