Never Too Late: Sex As You Get Older

You are never too old to enjoy a satisfying sex life. Although you might not be able to match the bedroom gymnastics of your youth, you can still indulge in the sensual and erotic pleasure of intimate, loving touch.
 

Better than ever

Your body obviously changes as you get older, but maturity does have some benefits – sexual hang-ups and performance anxieties become things of the past. Sex often gets better with age. In many ways, men and women are more equally matched – most men lose some of their earlier physical urgency for satisfaction and many women feel more sexually confident.
 
An active sex life produces a variety of chemicals that helps us to feel happy, enhances the immune system, increases lean body tissue and thickens skin tissue.

Physical changes

Most physical changes are due to the natural aging process: skin tends to lose some of its sensitivity and muscular movement may become more restricted. Both men and women undergo hormonal changes – men's testosterone levels gradually reduce, while women experience the menopause.
