How does a man's sexuality change as he gets older?

I (a woman in my mid-thirties) am starting to see a man about thirty years older than me. So far, so great, especially in the bedroom department. But it has me wondering how older men's experience of sexuality changes as they get older (assuming they are otherwise healthy). I know I could just ask him, and eventually I will, but for the time being I feel a little odd saying, "So, what's it like being as old as you?"
So, my question is, is sexuality different in older men? Do they get more horny? Less horny? Do they think about sex more or less than when they were younger? Are they attracted to different kinds of women than when they were younger? What kinds of physical limitations or advantages come with increasing age?
Any good links, blogs, info, personal anecdotes would be great. (I do realize that generalizations are just that, everyone is different, etc.)
