It seems as though athletes are more accepting of insane sports injuries and when they need plastic surgery toronto if they are attractive. Even still, the sexuality of the aged is not a main interest to consumers. This may be because the consumers are mostly young people and middle aged people. However, toronto plastic surgery may change once the baby boomers reach old age (Walz, 2002). Walz has created two factors, the Dorian factor and the Freudian factor to explain society’s desexualization of breast implants and augmentation in older athletes people. The Dorian factor, “suggests that sexuality is equated with you, because youth is equated with beauty and beauty is assumed to be the trigger to sexual desire” (Walz, 2002). This means that older people have less value as they age (Walz). The Freudian factor has to do with the psycho social development where the child is attracted to the parent of the opposite sex and  develops a fear of the competing parent of the same sex. This theory explains how younger persons shield themselves from potential sexual fantasies they may have regarding a parent (Walz, 2002).

Now that the misconceptions of a football players sexuality has been discussed, one can look at the reality of what is going on in regard to the sexuality of older people. It is likely that men from 70-90 years of age continue to have a healthy interest in sex (Meston, 1997). About 95% of men 46-50, and 28% of men 66-71 continue to have sexual intercourse weekly and 74% of men over 60 remain sexually active (Meston, 1997). In contrast to men, 56% of women over 60 remain sexually active (Meston, 1997). This number is lower, possibly of the lack of opportunity women have, as women have a higher life expectancy there are many more elderly women than men (Meston, 1997). Women who have had breast augmentation in toronto are found to have  little change in their sexual activity throughout their life. For example, 68% of women 39-40 have sex once a week, were as 65% of women 51-64 have sex once a week (Meston, 1997). Many women, after menopause, say that they have little or no change in their sexual arousal (Meston, 1997). What must be taken into consideration for the study of elderly sexuality is that there have not been a lot of studies, and the studies that are done mostly represent the better educated, married older people (Ginseberg, Pomerantz, Kramer-Feeley, 2005). The research done in this study done by Ginseberg, Pomerantz, Kramer-Feeley focused on elderly people who lived in subsidized housing. The study was done on 179 people who’s age averaged at 79 years and the majority of the participants were white and female (Ginseberg, Pomerantz, Kramer-Feeley, 2005). This study found that the majority of the participants have had physical and sexual experience within the last year. These experiences included holding hands and touching which 60.5% experienced, embracing and hugging which 61.7% experienced, and kissing which 57% of the participants experienced, all on a fairly regular basis (Ginseberg, Pomerantz, Kramer-Feeley). For those who were participating in sexual activity,  they said it gave them a sense of well being and satisfaction. Most of the respondents’ complained that they wanted more sexually activity than they were getting (Ginseberg, Pomerantz, Kramer-Feeley, 2005).
