Objectives: This study examined the associations among erectile difficulties, sexual satisfaction, and relationship satisfaction, and whether there is a buffering effect of non-penetrative partnered sex on relationship satisfaction in men aged 50+ who report erectile difficulties.
Methods:An analysis of survey data from 431 Czech men (aged 50–96, Mdn?=?64).
Results:Engagement in non-penetrative partnered sex did not moderate the relationship between erectile difficulties and sexual and relationship satisfaction, but it was linked to higher sexual and relationship satisfaction.
Conclusions: The buffering effect of non-penetrative practices for the link between erectile difficulties and relationship satisfaction has not been supported.
