Does orgasm sensation decline with age?

I'm 55yo married male.  for the past 3 or 4 years, my orgasms during intercourse have very little sensation and are not pleasurable.  In the past, they were much stronger and much more enjoyable.  my arousal and ability to get an keep an erection are unchanged, and foreplay is enjoyable and pleasurable, but climax is a real disappointment.  climax when masturbating, while also has a decreased sensation, is much more pleasurable.  Should I be worried, seek med attention?  or is this just
the price of getting older?

Yes, as we age, things do change with our bodies, to varying degrees.  However, since you mention masturbation, you could try avoiding all masturbation and use of porn, so that all of your sexual activities are only with your partner.  That way you will notice if masturbation is a factor.  It may take several weeks to completely confirm any changes.  Also, once a week or so, allow your partner to give you a slow handjob so that you will get a different sensation than from vaginal intercourse to see if there is any difference in your feeling.

You may do some exercise in addition to the above suggestion. Google, male deer exercise, kegel exercise, sat kriya, anal peripheral  prostate massage ,While doing intercourse, you can kegel each other alternatively.This will give different sensations to each other. Breathe to orgasm- google this method as well. It helps to expand the orgasm itself.
