There is no such thing as too old for sex and pleasure!!! Tell you husband that Charlie Chaplin still sired a child at the age of 91.
As we grow older and our bodies do go through normal changes, we do need to adapt sexually too. Things like arousal in men takes abit longer, the focus and intensity of stimulation needs to be adjusted to stimulate pleasure sensations etc.
I would strongly support you in recommending your husband get a physical check, as you are correct erectile dysfunction is often an indicator of possible health concerns and secondly it is treatable and with the help of medication erectile function can be improved and/or restored.
The fact tht both of you live healthy active lives should stand you both in good stead in your sexual lives.
The idea that the elderly are asexual and have a sell by date is one of the horrible discriminatory sex negative attitudes that pervade or society - it is called ageism.
So please do not let things be - you both have the right to and deserve to continue experiencing pleasure and intimacy in your relationship.
