Common sense says that people reach their sexual life peak during their 30’s, but that’s not completely true.
When you get older you can still improve the satisfaction you get from sex.
Why? There are a lot of reasons. Just check out these 8 reasons:
#1 You can not get pregnant
“Forty to fifty is still an anxiety point for many women because you can still get pregnant,” says Margaret E. Wierman, MD, a professor of medicine, physiology, and biophysics at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center, in Denver. “Once you’re menopausal, that worry is gone.”
Think about it—no tampons, pads, pills, diaphragms, IUDs, or condoms (if you have a long-term monogamous partner). What could be better?
#2 No kids interrupting you
After 50, your kids aren’t likely to be interrupting any bedroom sessions or waking you up in the middle of the night.
At this age your kids will be more independent and you’ll have more time for you and your partner.
#3 You know what you want
“There’s some data to suggest that women become less inhibited as they age, so it’s often a time of relaxation and being comfortable with who you are, and that often improves sexual functioning and sexual performance,” says Dr. Wierman.
#4 You may want it more
Experts will tell you that declining hormones could mean you’ll want it less, but that isn’t necessarily so. Desire, once quelled by birth control pills, could resurge, says Dr. Richards.
And if desire is a problem, proper hormone management can help, she says. While long-term use of traditional hormone replacement therapies, which include estrogen and progestin, are no longer recommended due to the heart and health risks, there are other options.
There are some hormone therapies that include testosterone that are being used to boost libido.
#5 You’re financially stable
This one less worry in your mind.
Older women tend to have more disposable income to spend on dinner dates and romantic getaways than they did in their younger years, says Dr. Richards.
You’ve worked hard; now’s the time to spend a little on your love life.
#6 More pleasurable experiences
It’s true that the hormonal changes of midlife can lead to vaginal dryness.
But this can be an excuse to experiment and discover new, more pleasurable experiences, courtesy of the lubricant aisle at your local drugstore.
#7 Your career is stable
In your 50s you won’t feel as stressed and pressured in your job as you did in your 20s, 30s and 40s.
“Menopausal women are more likely to have achieved their career goals and therefore feel less stressed,” Dr. Richards says. “Stress has a very negative effect on sexual desire.”
#8 Partner problems can be fixed
“One of the worst nightmares for a woman in menopause is to have the freedom to have sex anywhere but to have a partner who can’t perform anywhere,” says Dr. Goldstein.
Luckily the modern medicine provides a treatment for all problems (premature ejaculation, erectile dysfunction, low hormones).
