Sexuality is a multidimensional phenomenon that was widely recognised both as a basic need and a human right and it is strongly mediatized nowadays. By contrast, the subject of age sexuality is perceived trough insufficient knowledge, stereotypes and clichés as "a taboo" which hides the latent existing problem. Supported with relevant literature, aspects of the sex phenomena and age sexuality were analysed and discussed from various perspectives, whilst evidence was provided throughout this paper. Additionally, an in depth understanding of sexuality at a latter stage was stated within the scope of the long time care. However, in order to provide a precise understanding of the phenomenon from a professional care standpoint, individual needs and particularities have to be primarily identified. There are several measures to preserve and to exercise sexuality in the latter stages of life, from social, to institutional and ultimately, to the level of professional care. Therefore, professional nursing care takers can provide assisstance to others by actively helping them maintain and explore their age sexuality, ensuring reliability, trust and significant care towards the patients, wich ultimately results in breaking the taboo.
