Sex Gets Better With Age?
Novelty is the strongest aphrodisiac for both men and women, but much more for women. If a woman has the desire and knows how to use her femininity and sexuality, she can keep her man sexually engaged indefinitely. Men have a much bigger hurdle to jump because there is really nothing we can do to keep a women in that super horny “porn star” state that they are in at the beginning of a relationship.
That’s from a male commenter who told me that all his friends say the same thing: Women lose interest in sex over time. I don’t doubt that he and his fiends have experienced this. Other men have also asked me why women lose interest in sex after marriage. Sex researchers have also addressed the phenomenon.
Yet a slew of studies also say that sex gets better over time.
A recent University of San Diego survey of 800 U.S. women found that most felt sexually satisfied and achieved orgasm ‘most of the time’ or ‘always’ — and more often as they aged.
The results echo a University of California, San Diego study.
Sex gets better for British women, too — or at least 89% of them. As the Daily Mail reported:
A survey published today says women over 35 make love more than they did in their twenties.
Not only that, they reckon sex at that age is better than ever…
Some 75% of the women said they were happy with their sex lives. This figure increased to 82% among those currently in a relationship, with the married women seemingly the happiest overall.
MSN summarized a few more studies:
According to The New Hite Report (2000), older women are more likely to enjoy more multiple orgasms than younger women. The Pennell study of 2001 found that women’s sexual arousal or capacity to orgasm actually increases with age.
The National Over-45s Sex Survey carried out by Health Plus magazine found that older women are also more adventurous – with 89% admitting they like to vary positions and locations, including the garden. A majority said that sex was better in their 40s than it had been in their 20s.
Looks like sex often gets better with age. And that’s some pretty good news. Yet it doesn’t always happen. What makes the difference? I’ll explore that question in a future post.
