Revista de Enfermagem UFPE On Line , 2008,
Abstract: This is an exploratory-descriptive study, from approach qualitative. The participants were elderly, both sexes, from a seniors group. The aim was to investigate the elderly’s understanding regards to sexuality and to know how they live it. 42 individuals were interviewed, 35 of them female and seven male. Half of the participants were declared widow. When questioned about the places they generally frequent, the most cited places were beaches and cinema. Regards to sexuality, some elderly considered that it is natural, which is part of life, others restricted it to affection and companionship; others judged the sexuality as nonexistent. As for pleasant activities, the most cited were to be with their family and home activities, crafts and leisure time. The elderly plan to live healthfully in the future and to have nice living with their parents. Some of them considered this stage of life as a final moment of their existence in which they may enjoy life. Others had negative perceptions about the future, developing hopelessness feelings. The results showed that, even combining sexuality only to sex, the elderly showed to live it in the widest sense, seeking pleasure from the most diverse ways. However, it was possible to perceive the presence of the myth of asexual oldness and feelings of hopelessness. After these results, we realize that it is very important to develop this subject and warn the society that it is possible to reach old age in a healthy way, expressing love and sexuality.

Sexuality and the Ethical of yourself care  [cached]
Márcio Mariguela
Educa??o : Teoria e Prática , 2008,
Abstract: Leaving from the distinction between word and thing in the Renaissance thought from Michel de Montaigne, the present article connects Freud’s position on the childlike sexuality to the ethical work of yourself care. The sexuality is a discursive act thatenvolves such the symbolic dimension – the representations conventionally set up by the social order–, as the imaginary dimension – the forms with which the individuals set themselves up as like psychological identity, and the real dimension – the impossible of representation that returns with the repetition power. So, it intends to articulate the position of Michel Foucault with the psychoanalysis of Freud and Lacan to establish some wombs of thought about the inclusion of the sexuality subject in the daily school.

Abstract: Introduction In contrast to animal species in which linear relationships exist between hormonal status and sexual behaviour sexuality in human population is not determined so simply by the level of sexual steroids. The article analyses female sexuality in the light of hormonal status. Administration of sexual steroids during pregnancy and sexual differentiation High doses of gestagens, especially those with high androgen activity, widely used against miscarriages may lead to tomboys, but without differences in sexual orientation. However, it has been observed that the frequency of bisexual and lesbian women is higher in women with congenital adrenogenital syndrome. Hormones sexual desire and sexuality during menstrual cycle It has been established that sexual desire, autoeroticism and sexual fantasies in women depend on androgen levels. There are a lot of reports claiming that sexual desire varies during the menstrual cycle. Hormonal contraception and sexuality Most patients using birth control pills present with decreased libido. But, there are reports that progestagens with antiandrogenic effect in contraceptive pills do not affect sexual desire. Hormonal changes in peri- and postmenopausal period and sexuality Decreased levels of estrogen and testosterone in older women are associated with decreased libido, sensitivity and erotic stimuli. Sexuality and hormone replacement therapy Hormonal therapy with estrogen is efficient in reference to genital atrophy, but not to sexual desire. Really increased libido is achieved using androgens. Also, therapy with dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) and tibolone have positive effects on female libido. Conclusion Effect of sexual steroids on sexual sphere of women is very complex. The association between hormones and sexuality is multidimensional, as several hormones are important in regulation of sexual behaviour. Still, it should be pointed out that sexuality is in the domain of hormonal, emotional-motivational and social factors.
