Contrary to popular belief, sex doesn’t stop once you hit 40.
Your body has amazing abilities and functions. None of this stops at a certain age.
You’ve spent years with your body, got married (maybe), had children (possibly), and are most likely going to enter into menopause soon.
Sex is a natural part of life, and we believe that great sex doesn’t stop at any age.
In fact, there are a number of ways that sex is even better in your 40s than it is in your earlier years!
Read below for our top 10 reasons why sex is BETTER at 40…
By now, you know exactly what you’re doing. You also know what you like and don’t like. Whereas your 20s (and 30s to a certain extent) are about experimentation and finding your sexual tastes, sex at 40 and beyond is more about doing what you love, and what you know works in the bedroom.
2. With age comes confidence
…and a self-awareness of your body. You’re more confident in the way you look, clothed and unclothed. Instead of worrying what your body looks like, you’re focused on sex.
3. Better communication
With confidence, you’re able to speak up about what it is exactly that you want. This leads to greater sexual satisfaction.
4. Realistic sex
Gone are the expectations that sex should look a certain way and involve certain things. As you get older, you’re more likely to enjoy sex whenever and wherever, regardless of what that looks like for you. Even more so, sex becomes more about enjoyment and taking your time rather than trying to do every position possible.
5. Frequent orgasms
No need to fake an orgasm! Many women have reported that they experience more orgasms after their 40s.
6. Stress-free sex
If you have children it’s likely that they have already left home so there isn’t a need to worry about waking up the children or them coming in unexpectedly. As a plus, once you reach menopause, there is a reduced chance of getting pregnant and no more menstruation worries.
7. Greater sexual desire
According to a study, women over 40 have greater sexual desires than their younger counterparts. They are more open to try new things (which can mean better sex) and usually want sex more often.
Assuming you’re with a long term partner, there is comfort and familiarity that comes from years of sex together. As much as you know what you like, you also know what your partner likes. This makes sex a pleasurable experience for both of you.
9. Better Foreplay
You are more interested in pleasure, both for yourself and for your partner. So, foreplay plays a bigger and better role in your sex life at 40.
As with most things in life, you’re less concerned with what everyone else is doing. This is your sex life.
