RAMOS CABALLERO, Edgardo Javier  e  MELGUIZO HERRERA, Estela. Factors associated with attitudes about sexuality in old age in Medellin, Colombia. Civilizar [online]. 2017, vol.17, n.33, pp.267-275. ISSN 1657-8953.

It is considered that older adults experience a regression of all their physiological functions, as is the case of the enjoyment of sexuality, but reality shows that people are born and die being sexed. The community in its misconception, considers this behavior as unacceptable. In order to know the sociodemographic factors associated with the attitudes of older adults before sexuality, it was developed through the application of a survey, a descriptive and analytical study, non-experimental of cross-section, in people over 18 years of age. There are prejudicial attitudes in relation to sexuality in the elderly, which are accentuated while people are older. Community education could correct some of these prejudices.

Palavras-chave : Attitudes; sexuality; elders and prejudice.
