Ways to Enjoy a Longer Sex Life

Ways to Enjoy a Longer Sex Life

Protect your heart

Conventional wisdom holds that a woman’s sexual activity and interest ebb exponentially as she ages. Yet a study published in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society found that 43 percent of nearly 2,000 45- to 80-year-olds reported that their interest in or desire to have sex was “moderate to very high.”


Stay flexible

Make stretching part of your heart-healthy exercise regimen (like these doorway stretches that’ll un-slouch your back). If you don’t maintain your flexibility with regular stretching, you may find your sexual positions limited by inflexibility—and the pleasure-killing pain that can come with it—as you age.


Get to know your own body

You may need to experiment a bit to find out what makes it easier for you to experience sexual pleasure or orgasm. Use your hands or a sex toy such as a vibrator to explore your own body and identify, specifically, what types of touch or stimulation feel good (just follow our guide to green and eco-friendly foreplay).


Stay close emotionally

If you do it will help you physically, as well. As they age, men and women often have difficulties with sexual desire, arousal, lubrication, or erections, but they still maintain a high level of sexual satisfaction. This is, in part, because both men and women tend to pay more attention to the emotional aspects of sex as they age. If you attend to the emotional matters, the physical consequences of aging will have less of an impact. http://fxn.ws/2uGk2n6
