As the above review indicates, biological changes do not occur in isolation but take place in a social context that gives meaning and significance to aging. The unidimensional focus on biological processes, which characterizes much ongoing sexual research summarized in this book, carries the risk of distorting our perception of aging sexuality as being a medical problem (Kart, Metress and Metress, 1992b). The medical model orientation towards the assessment of signs and symptoms for diagnosis and treatment frequently overlooks the emotional aspects of health and well-being.
