A man’s refractory period, the recovery time he needs between orgasms, usually changes as he gets older. Men in their twenties may only need a few minutes of rest before they can perform sexually again. Gradually, this time increases. Men in their forties or fifties may need to wait a few hours. A man in his sixties may need a day.
The refractory period is different for every man, however. It can also be influenced by his general health.
