Many of us have heard that older friend talking about how fantastic the sex is with her partner and how she climaxes every single time. Does it make you wonder how she manages that and make you feel just a wee bit envious of her? If you are in your 20s, you must have probably realised by now that reaching that elusive big O is harder than you imagined. But don’t let that realisation spoil the amazing thing that sex is for you. There is hope for you yet! Here are five ways sex gets better with age, so rest assured knowing that much hotter sex is in store for you.
1. Better chance of climaxing
Studies suggest that women in their late 30s and 40s have a much better chance of climaxing through intercourse as compared to those in their 20s. This can be due to the fact that as you get older, you’ve had time to practise and learn, and are much relaxed during sex.
2. You know what you want
You know what makes you feel good and you won’t shy away from voicing it. Is missionary too boring for you? You will probably let your partner know and change the moves. You know your body best and you will be only too happy to show your partner exactly what turns you on.
3. You’re more confident
Keeping the lights on while having sex doesn’t embarrass you anymore. In fact, you’d rather opt for this alternative yourself because it adds a sense of urgency to your lovemaking. You start getting excited by the fact that there’s a naked person next to you instead of focusing on your insecurities and flaws.
4. You try out newer things
More confidence means you’re more open to trying new things and experimenting in the bedroom. You won’t say no to adventures and will want to initiate love making, more often than not.
5. Increased sexual satisfaction
So you may have had a lot of dirty sex in your 20s but sheer sexual satisfaction increases as you get older. You’re generally satisfied with the quality of your life, with the guy you’re married to or are dating, more at peace with your own body, and all of this makes up for more exciting sex.
6. Less stress more soulfulness
As you get older, you tend to let go of stress more easily. You’re calmer and more at peace with yourself and your life. Sex is more soulful and intimate. It’s not just lust and animal attraction.
