To identify sexually-related themes of the sexuality of older African American women. We included 13 African American older women 57 to 82 years of age11 of whom self-identified as heterosexual, one as bisexual, and one as lesbian.

Among them, we refer the interested reader to comprehensive research conducted by Tessler Lindau et al. This study is particularly relevant to our discussion because African Americans were one of the very few oversampled groups.

Women with poor health were rarely sexually active and, if they did engage in Pretty older black women activities, often reported problems with sex.
