Donna Rayhons was eventually moved to a nursing home, where her cognitive state deteriorated quickly.
In May 2014 her daughters met with the staff and came up with a care plan for their mother, including a determination that she could no longer properly consent to sex.
Henry Rayhons was informed of this decision, and his wife was moved from a semiprivate room.
On May 23, 2014, Henry Rayhons was seen leading Donna Rayhons into the room.
For the older and less connected, nursing homes have become sites of hookups. For baby boomers eager to buy into the dream of old age as a wild and willful second youth, the longevity of their sexual activity offers an escape from the ebbing of life and the approach of death.
A 2012 study in The Student British Medical Journal found that the rates of STDs among U. The Rayhons case illustrates how the sexualization of old age has its limits.The jury was tasked with determining whether the alleged sexual contact did in fact occur and whether Donna Rayhons was capable of consenting to sex.Defense lawyers argued that Henry Rayhons was being unfairly prosecuted, arguing that no sexual contact occurred on or around the date of the alleged incident. At issue is when and if patients with dementia can properly consent to sexual activity.It may never be known what exactly happened or whether there was some solitary moment of lucidity when she consented.What is obvious, however, are the limitations of an Alzheimer’s patient who deteriorates suddenly and significantly and is unable to meet the expectations of a partner who is healthy and frustrated by the loss.The constant marketing of drugs for erectile dysfunction, such as Cialis and Viagra (whose combined sales are forecast to total .9 billion by 2019), and others for women, like Osphena, has enabled an expectation of sexual activity until death.
