The Sex Life Of Women During Every Decade Of Their Life

An exciting sex life at every decade of life is a dream that all women see. Society teaches us to not fantasize about all the ‘dirty unholy thoughts’ that are just skin deep. But the human body has many natural urges that surface, no matter how many times we try to suppress them. Women and their libido has a deep connection with the hormones that the ovaries produce. It is a common belief that women lose their libido with age. Fortunately, it is true only to an extent. Women can enjoy sex till the time they die as long as they have the willingness to do it. Great sex at every decade is a real possibility for all the women who want to keep exploring their sexuality, irrespective of their age. The way to do so can be a little tricky and it requires some understanding of the female body.

the book Loving Sex: The Book of Joy and Passion says, “At this stage, the estrogen, progesterone and testosterone are at their highest levels.” This biological phase is scientifically the best time to have lots of babies. The hormone surge after menstrual cycle can lead women in their 20s to have lots of sexual fantasies. The libido at this stage will be very high for women.

Cons

The 2010 National Survey of Sexual Health and Behavior have found out that despite the raging hormones, women in their 20s are comparatively much less orgasmic than older women. Experts says that women in their 20s have more confidence issues and are less likely to ask for what they want in bed. This can translate into more unsatisfactory experiences in bed. Also, women at this stage are more likely to rely on birth control pills which can diminish their testosterone levels and their sex drive.

at their emotional peak. They are more confident about their bodies, less anxious about their flaws and are not afraid to ask for what they want in bed. Hormones start to dip a bit in this decade, but the emotional upside can more than make up for the fluctuations in the hormones.

Cons

Childbirth can cause a huge dip in the level of testosterone. Nursing mothers produce prolactin after childbirth which can suppress other sex hormones like estrogen and progesterone. All this can diminish a women’s sex drive. Masturbation can be a great relief as it can help in increasing the blood flow and in balancing the sex hormones.

Pros

This is the time when women change the way they perceive a sexual experience. There will be a shift from satisfaction to mastery in this decade of life. Their experience will serve them well in this decade. A survey has shown that women in their 50s often experienced orgasms.

Cons

The dramatic dip in testosterone and almost absent estrogen will greatly affect women’s libido at this stage. Physicians might prescribe some testosterone to boost libido in women at this stage. Also, maintaining healthy weight can help in boosting libido in women. Excess body fat can diminish free floating testosterone in blood that can reduce sex drive in women.
