Is the sex better when you’re younger or when you get older?
Is the quantity or the quality that matters the most when you think about your sex life’s peak? Well, keep the answer to yourselves, because we’re not here to take sides, but rather to clarify a hot issue that has been kept too much under silence and under the media’s misconceptions. Almost every person out there will probably think that the young adults are the ones who enjoy sex much more than the older ones, maybe because of the primal instincts young people have, maybe because they lack maturity or responsibility.
Whatever the case, the thing is that newer studies have brought to surface the fact that the sex life is getting better and better only with age. Should it be because that along with maturity, comes also the responsibility and the ability to know what you want in the sheets? The answer is still somewhere in your minds!
The study conducted by a research team from the university of Pittsburgh have shown that some of the women between 45 and 60, along with their partners, experienced some lower sex drives in their youth rather than when they grew older. Women claimed that in time, they were more able to get to know themselves more from a sexual point of view, understand what they like and what they don’t like, and it was also much more easier for them to talk about these things whenever they were in bed with their partners. It looks like the younger versions of themselves were too shy or afraid to ask what they truly wanted when it came to sex.
The study was conducted under the form of a interview, because only in this way the participant women had the possibility to talk more freely about their experiences, thoughts and emotions regarding to sex and their sex lives so far.
However, the study’s most important discovery was to find out that a great number of women were able to adapt themselves to any of the negative changes that were made by the modification of their expectations regarding the sex or their sexual activity, which has put more emphasis on the intimacy aspects of sex, as well as the emotional bonds related to sex.
In other terms, those women admitted that their sex lives has changed over the course of the years, but they did not responded by having any less or any more satisfying sex, but in fact, they started to take the matters in their own hands. What did that mean? Well, mostly, it meant that these women found out new ways of exploring their own sexual pleasure, either by using lube or by telling their partners to spend a lot more time on the foreplay. Some of the women admitted that they even started to masturbate more often.
Another study (because yes, this was not the only one that was able to prove the fact that the sex will get better with age) was able to discover that older people tend to become more adventurous in bed only when they get older.
The sex life is something private and full of experiences – more or less pleasurable – for each and every one of us, and I think that one thing upon we can all agree on is that we have to take advantage of it and the sex’s benefits for our physical and mental health, despite the fact that we’re younger or we’re older.
It doesn’t matter the age, what it matters, is to a good sex life along with the ones that we love. While age is just a number, sex is something that an entire relationship depends on and it is really important that the both partners are satisfied and happy. No one should be afraid to diverse things a little more if it’s necessary, because variety is what keeps the fire burning and the passion alive in each relationship. And while age is just numbers, sex is just about the feelings and how closely you are or you become to your partner, each and every time you are in bed with him.
We know women may found it a little bit more shy to express their sexual wishes and fantasies in bed, but when is trust in the partner and when the feelings are mutual, it shouldn’t be that hard. In fact, any guy would love to see his woman taking the initiatives in bed, at least every once in a while.
But, if you think that your sex life hasn’t reach its peak yet, maybe it is not because of your or because of your partner. Maybe it’s not the time yet! Did you get my saying?
