  • <p>This article is in many ways telling and illustrative for a prevailing discourse on older men’s sexuality as lifelong; in which sexuality is reinforced and constructed as something that despite ageing persists. Literature on sexuality and later life often point to the obfuscation of older people’s sexuality and how the neglect of sexuality in later life (in research and elsewhere) render older asexual. A shift in discourse can however be identified in which older people’s sexuality, from being an unthinkable issue, increasingly is regarded as lifelong and part of a healthy and positive ageing. What the article on Sven Tumba conveys is, however, how sexuality is by and large equated with erection and heterosexual penetrative sex, something which is in line with how discourses of lifelong and healthy ageing are often constructed. Impotence is posited as the major threat to continued sexual activity in later life, and sexuality is hence conceptualised in a narrow way and largely rooted in male experience.</p>
