We have all been there. As angst ridden teenagers, attempting to lose our virginity as quickly as possible, trying not to waste anymore of our lives waiting to have sex for the first time. Everyone seems to think that the best years of our sex lives are early on, when we still have the "looks" and energy to act like bunny rabbits.
As we get older, the self-consciousness surrounding sex seems to grow as we worry if sex will still be the same as when we were young and spry. I'll be honest, even I assumed that once I broke out of my 20s and into my 30s, that the best years of my sex life were behind me, and that it would all be "down hill" from there. Turns out that I, along with a good majority of people are totally wrong on that point.
A study was conducted with people who were in their 50s and 60s, trying to establish at what age people think that they were having the best sex of their lives. The results of the study will shock you, but also leave you with hope for the future.
And the age you will be when you have most likely have the best sex of your life is... 46. That's right, you read that correctly. You will be the most sexually satisfied when you are pushing the big 50. If you think about it, it kind of makes sense, practice does make perfect, and they say that in order to "master" any skill, you need to put in at least 10,000 hours to get there.
Another study which involved over 1000 women between the ages of 18 and 94 showed that having sex with your partner once a week led to a more sexually satisfied relationship. But gentlemen, that study also showed that under 20 per cent of women said that they could reach an orgasm by having sex alone, the rest indicated that a little more effort was needed from their male partner in order to "get the job done."
Do you agree with the results of these studies?
