I don’t know where the notion came from or who perpetuated the idea that middle aged women don’t like sex but we are here to debunk it and state cold hard facts. First off, it’s worth mentioning that sex can actually keep your body and mind healthy. Having sex releases endorphins in the brain that can keep you happy and cheerful for up to 2 days after.
Studies have shown that orgasms can even help your hair grow. So if you’re thinning on top, you might just need to up your wanking.
It’s long been suggested that a woman’s sex drive rapidly decreases after the age of 40, while a man’s sex drive remains the same or increases. There was always an assumption that when other things took precedence in a woman’s life, such as looking after elderly parents or raising teens, her sex drive would dwindle. Pretty patronising, right?
A recent poll showed that 40% of women over 40 actually desired more sex. 66% percent said they owned at least 1 sex toy and 66% said they had wild sexual fantasies (of which 82% didn't tell their partners about. 35% admitted to masturbating at least once a week; and nearly 37% said they had sex at least once a week. We only need to look at Samantha Jones from Sex and the City to see how ravenous middle aged women can be.
Older women tend to be quite health conscious and with menopause on the horizon it’s even more important to keep stress and anxiety at bay. Having regular sex and orgasms helps to to increase blood flow which promotes healthy hair, skin and sleep. More importantly, sex is an important way to keep the intimacy alive between you and your partner. Family therapist, Julia Samuel, offered her advice on keep your life life alive over the age of 40:
“The quality of your relationship is the single most important predictor of the quality of your life as you age. Many of patients said that intimacy was the most important aspect of sex with a partner.”
Middle aged women might have felt a decline in their libido owing to the menopause and the change in hormones but now with all the help and remedies, women are experiencing a sexual revolution, and there are plenty of MILFs and cougars out there all eager to fulfill their fantasies. Take Lynda Leigh for example, she’s on me of the hottest MILFs on Babestation and she loves to show a young gent how to treat a hot older woman in the bedroom!
