Science Says Sexual Satisfaction In Women Increases With Age
Jan 05, 2012 15:15
A new survey of over 800 women has found that the women under 55 and the ones over 80 were the most satisfied with their sex lives. And that satisfaction didn't necessarily correlate to high desire. Study co-author Elizabeth Barrett-Connor tells ScienceDaily: These latest findings suggest that many ladies over 80 don't have a lot of sexual desire, but that doesn't really bother them — even if they're sexually active. It doesn't mean ladies should ignore their low desire if it bothers them, but that something other than initial horniness may be contributing to good sex for older women. The study authors do note that "emotional closeness during sex was associated with more frequent arousal, lubrication, and orgasm."
