Sex and Aging: Sexy At Any Age

Sex and Aging: Sexy At Any Age

It’s a well known fact that boys reach the height of their sexual peak at around age 18 and women report an increased enjoyment of sex in their late 30′s. Recent studies report that most men (unless they have specific health issues like high cholesterol, diabetes, or heart disease) are sexually active for their entire life, and are virile enough to produce healthy sperm. Renowned artist Pablo Picasso allegedly fathered a child when he was 90 years old, which reminds me of an old cliche… “There is many a good tune played on an old flute.” But don’t confuse physical prime with sexual prime.

Normal physical changes in aging women include the decrease of sex hormones and vaginal lubrication. Normal physical changes in aging men include slower erections, longer refractory period between orgasms, and less sperm.

Emotionally, most people would rate themselves a better lover in their mature years than when they were in their 20′s because they have more sexual experience and feel more sexually confident. They are more comfortable communicating their desires and have learned the difference between just having sex and making love. With age comes wisdom and as long as you remain enthusiastic to please and are open and willing to be pleased, then there is no reason why you shouldn’t have the best sex of your life. Sex begins between the ears and then goes between the legs, so if you think sexy, you’ll be sexy at any age.

I think being "sexy" comes with age

Well...I'm old enough for Medicare and spent the afternoon in bed with my lover! It only goes away if you WANT it to go away!

I am in my mid fifties and feel just as just as sexy as I did when in my twenties. It isn't at all about the way I look but the way I feel inside.

Karen, wine is much better. Wine isn't disgusting, unless you drink enough to vomit. LOL!
