A critical review of the literature regarding individuals’ knowledge and their attitudes toward elderly sexuality is presented. A generally positive relationship was discovered between various age cohorts’ depth of knowledge and their permissiveness of attitudes. However, some health care providers demonstrated a negative relationship between their knowledge and attitudes. In future studies, the use of a moderator methodology, rather than seeking a uniform relationship, appears essential in order to understand discrepant findings.
