Sex As We Age

As you get older things will inevitably change in regards to you sex life, but that doesn’t mean it has to go downhill. In fact, some couples even report that their sex lives get better with age so just because your sexual desires might change as time goes on, it doesn’t have to stop you from having better and better sex. Continue reading to find out what are some of the things you can expect for your sex life as you get older.

Sex can be more satisfying

A 2012 study of sexually active older women found that as women get older, sexual satisfaction increases and both the youngest and oldest women from the study reported the highest level of orgasm satisfaction. While the common misconception seems to be that sex is best in your 20’s, however alongside youth comes a lack of experience. As partners get older and have more experience, they become more confident in knowing what satisfies them and are better at relaying this message.

Sex can help your memory

A recent study of 6,016 adults aged over 50 found that higher levels of sexual activity and greater emotional closeness were associated with better memory. While it’s known that sex in itself is exercise which already makes it a positive impact for your body as a whole, studies showing the impact on your brain power are promising for those that like to get down in the bedroom as they get older.

You might need to ask the doctor

No subject is too taboo for your doctor and can make a world of difference for your sex life as you age. Topics such as painful intercourse (dyspareunia), vaginal dryness, and low libido can all be treated and resolved as long as there is open, honest communication with your healthcare provider.

You still need to be mindful of stds if you have more than one partner

STD rates among older people have been on the rise as both men and women seem to forget the importance of safe sex. With the possibility of getting pregnant after menopause is gone, STDs can still be transmitted just as easily. It is important to have your partner tested and to still use condoms if you are starting to date again as you get older.
