I think it depends on the couple.

And I think that whether on not the 50+ year old man gets eretions is up to the 50+ year old man.

Everyone is different.

50 year old couples have sex
70 year old couples have sex
90 year old couples have sex
Your parents probably have sex weather they are still together or not.
I know couples in nursing homes still have sex, as do singles in nursing homes.

As has been said, that depends on the 50-year-old man. Bodies aren't machines, and even teenage guys may sometimes experience trouble getting erections, for all sorts of reasons.

As a guy gets older, it may take him a bit longer to get an erection, and after he's ejaculated, the "refractory period" before he can get another may be longer.

That doesn't mean he'll necessarily have any erectile dysfunction; it's just how bodies change as they age (and some men find that as they age they can enjoy more stimulation before ejaculating, which can be a bonus).

And of course sex isn't necessarily about erections anyway ...

Sex isn't something that young people have a monopoly on, ya know .

Do we hve a topic on old age and sex lying around?

If you pick up this month's Bust magazine, the theme is elderly women and sex. There are some interesting articles including some words by the illustrious (and 73-year-old) Betty Dodson.

The elderly can continue to have sex, health permitting. If they are fit to climb 3 flights of stairs, generally, they can handle sex. Post-menopausal women may have trouble lubricating, and elderly men with cardiovascular conditions may have trouble with erections. But there are no rules against it.

there was actually a lot of concern a couple of years back about the growing rates of HIV and other STDs in the elderly. The older women had gone through the menopause, so had no concerns about possible pregnancy, and STD awareness had been targeted at the young, so elderly people, especially in nursing homes, were having a hell of a lot of, often unprotected and promiscious sex. just thought that it was interesting, and also proof that the elderly can be really randy too.

Even young women can have trouble lubricating. That's why God created water soluable lube!

Sex happening after being married for a while or aging beyond the milestone can happen. There isn't such "rule" for anyone not to have sex even elderly people. Married people even after they've had their share of kids, still engage in intercourse. Of course, it wouldn't be just for pleasure kicks, it's also a way to show your emotional love to your spouse or partner in the most intimate way possible. A couple i know who will married 25 yrs this July have a 22 yr old daughter, and an 19 yr old son and both of their kids are out of the house so it would be obvious that they have some privacy time to themselves alone in the house So that answers ur question

As it happens, the person with the hottest and happiest sex life of anyone I know has been monogamously married to the same guy for 30 years .
