Sex Gets Better With Age!

Older and more mature people seem to have all of the fun. Not only do they say that with age comes wisdom (which would be extremely helpful to avoid those one night stands you are going to regret forever), but all sorts of things are said to get better with age.

What sort of things? Well, there’s wine, cheeseā€¦ and now sex.

Yes, it seems that even as we get older we are still enjoying sex. So what makes sex so much better with age?

English Longitudinal Study of Ageing

A study conducted by the University of Manchester has found that, even when we are in our seventies and eighties, people are still having sex. Not only are they still having sex, but they are also still enjoying it!

7,000 were surveyed, and when asked if they were still sexually active, the responses were surprising.

31% of women and a whopping 54% of men said that they were sexually active, with a third of them having frequent sex at least twice a month.

I have some married friends who don’t get to enjoy it that often!

Sex gets better with age

So what could it be that makes sex so much more enjoyable as you get older?

It seems that as time goes on, all of the inhibitions that may hold us back in our youth slowly disappear, or we learn to be a little bit brave and just try new things anyway. It seems that a lot of older people are enjoying an active sex life because of this positive attitude.

Not only that, but over time you become more and more confident about what it is you want. Throughout your years, you will experiment and try new things, and when you find something you like you will know about it.

After talking to a friend of mine in his early sixties, he said that, as he’s gotten older, he stops worrying about what his partner will say to him if he suggests something to try in bed. He knows what he wants and isn’t afraid to ask for it, which is something I think a lot of us could learn!

Is mature sex different?

Mature sex is no different to any other sex. The only difference is that one or both involved might have that little extra experience.

The biggest mistake people make is thinking they are made of glass. That doesn’t mean you can go charging in like a bull in a china shop, but if there is anything that doesn’t work for them they will let you know.

Far too often, people believe that when you get your first grey hair you suddenly stop being sexual. I’m really glad that this study has shown that this absolutely isn’t the case, and that you can all still enjoy sex in your seventies and eighties.

Are you surprised by these results? Are you one of those older men or women who is still enjoying an active sex life? Why not share your tips and tricks with us?
