This article set out to investigate the prevalence of using the Internet for love and sexual purposes in 60—year-old men and women in four European countries, and whether sociodemographic factors and sexual activity could predict this type of Internet use.
Older European adults are most likely in the starting pit of using Cybersex for seniors Internet for love and sexual purposes having ly relied on other outlets for such purposes, e. The present study found that about 1 in 10 women in all countries used the Internet to find a committed partner, seek sexual information or advice, read or watch pornography, or buy sex products. There were few ificant cross-cultural differences in usage among women.
The bivariate finding that more women in Portugal than in Norway and Denmark had used social media to find a partner for sex may be related to a decreased social network as a consequence of the decreased income after retirement in Portugal. Among men, however, there were ificant cross-cultural differences in usage. The from the multivariate analyses showed that a lower proportion of men in Norway and Denmark than in Portugal used the Internet to seek sexual information and advice. Also, a lower proportion of men in Portugal than in the other countries used the Internet to check out dating sites, buy sex products, and in particular, to read or watch pornography.
The use of pornography has ly been studied in several Nordic countries. Both men and women in the Nordic countries i. Furthermore, people in Norway, Denmark and Belgium have good Internet availability. Taken together, this is probably the most likely explanation for the observed difference in pornographic viewing rates and other Internet activities between Portugal and the other three countries. Based on the Cybersex for seniors from the multivariate analyses, we found that the use of the Internet to find a committed partner decreased with increasing age in men. Furthermore, level of education was a unique predictor for using Internet to find a committed partner in both genders.
Compared to men and women with primary education, those with tertiary education had lower use of the Internet to check out dating sites. This may reflect that men and women with higher education have other social arenas in which to find partners than the Internet. There may also be different social norms for using the Internet to find a partner for people with low and high education.
In addition, relationship status predicted use of the Internet to check out dating sites to find a committed partner in both genders. As expected, Cybersex for seniors odds of using the Internet to seek a committed partner was higher for non-partnered persons compared to partnered participants. This may also correspond to the finding that women who masturbated were more likely than women who did not masturbate to use the Internet to find a committed partner.

There was a similar Cybersex for seniors among women. Individuals who masturbate frequently may have a higher sex drive or place a higher value on their sex life, which motivated them to watch pornography and get pleasure out of it, as sex is more important to them.

Internet literacy Schreurs et al.
Lastly, sexual activity thorough life was not associated with any online sexual activity in women. When evaluating the of this four-country study, some limitations should be considered. From research, it is to be assumed that individuals with more liberal views about sexuality were more likely to participate in this study than more traditional individuals Dunne, This bias may be reflected in the findings, possibly in overestimated rates of activity on the Internet in relation to the viewing of pornography or perhaps even finding a partner via the Internet as this is still somewhat unusual for older cohorts.
Further, although it was emphasized in the recruitment process that the responses from those sexually inactive were as important as from those active, it is possible that sexually active aging men and women are overrepresented in this study Dunne,which would, again, inflate our estimates of sexual activity and, highly likely, Cybersex for seniors satisfaction.
Some of the measures included in the questionnaire could represent a limitation. Finally, o f the recruited participants, only 0. As the latter category is difficult to interpret, we chose not include sexual orientation in our analyses.
Therefore, due to a small of aging non-heterosexual persons, generalizations of findings to self-identified non-heterosexuals or other sexual minorities may be precluded de Vries, The present study is one of the few comparative cross-cultural studies with probability samples focusing on sexuality in aging men and women across Europe.

Our conclusion is that the Internet is important for many older adults with regard to finding partners, seeking advice, and watching pornography throughout Europe. Given that the coming generations of older adults will be more familiar and competent with using the Internet, our study indicates that there is a great potential for using the Internet for sexual health interventions for older adults across Europe.

Tailored websites to promote both sexuality and how to preserve a committed relationship are likely to prove important for the aging population.
