Men Over 50 Enjoy Better Sex

A new survey shows that men over 50 enjoy sex more than younger men.

Dr. Miriam Stoppard isn't surprised and says it can also be true for women.

It's great news for men over 50 -- if you're still doing it, you'll be enjoying it more than ever.

The study of more than 1,000 Norwegian and American men discovered that enjoyment rises as you get older, although your performance will fall.

Sexually speaking, the study has separated satisfaction from ability, which is an encouraging way to look at your future prospects as the 50-year-olds beat the 30-year-olds hands-down in the satisfaction stakes.

I don't find that at all surprising. Nor that the only men who equalled the 50-somethings in the satisfaction stakes were men under 20, whose hormones are always at cyclone levels, and for whom sexual experimentation with new partners is a way of life.

It's the 30-year-olds who are bottom of the league, poor things, having to cope with climbing the ladder in their chosen profession and bringing up a young family.

Why Older Is Better
In contrast, by 50, you've probably got as high as you'd like on your career ladder, and you're pretty flush. You've got more time and you know what you like. You know yourself and your sexual tastes and feel comfortable in a long-term relationship.

As a couple, you're sexual experts, knowing what each other likes, open about expressing preferences, and being able to achieve a high level of satisfaction every time you have sex. In other words, you're sexually confident. And as good sex starts in the brain, sex in this context isn't boring or repetitive; it's deliciously relaxed and guaranteed. It's good for women, too. And I think the same applies to women, especially if you're the lucky partner of one of these sexually satisfied 50-year-old men. With the specter of menopause hanging over us, women are under the mistaken impression that sex will dwindle as they grow older -- for some women it does -- but research says that for many it's better than ever, and there are very good physiological reasons for this. The ovaries do stop manufacturing estrogen, of course, but they happily continue to pump out male sex hormones for the rest of your life, and it's those that are responsible for your sex drive. So again, like men, if you're actually doing it, it could be better than ever. Source: Daily Mirror. Powered by Yellowbrix.
