Hinchliff, S. (2009) Ageing and sexual health in the UK: how should health psychology respond to the challenges? Journal of Health Psychology, 14 (3). pp. 355-360. ISSN 1359-1053Full text available as:
The UK has an increasing ageing population and, like other western societies, has undergone several significant shifts over the last 50 years, including attitudes towards sexual activity, relationships and growing older. Drawing on evidence from a range of sources and a number of disciplines, this editorial examines the potential sexual and reproductive health implications for current and future cohorts of ‘older’ people, and considers the role of health psychology in responding to the challenges of growing older in a rapidly changing (sexualized, digitalized and medicalized) world.
