A recent study of 2,000 women from the U.S. showed that 60% of the participants were sexually active within the last three months, and half of them enjoyed it. Why aren't we overly surprised?
The study, conducted by the University of California at San Francisco, asked women aged between 40 to 80 about their sex lives, their sexual enjoyment, and (if applicable), their reasons for abstaining.
The researchers found that out of the 60% of sexually active women, half reported "moderate to high" levels of satisfaction, and almost a third of women, 65 or older, had engaged in sexual activity in the past three months.
They even found that African-American women reported higher levels of sexual desire, but lower levels of sexual activity than white women, while sexually active Latina women were more likely to report "at least moderate sexual satisfaction."
The women were also questioned on their level on interest in sex. 43& of the participants reported "at least moderate sexual desire" - which goes against the "conventional wisdom" that women lose interest in sex because of personal physical problems.
"Conventional wisdom"? It seems that we live in a culture which views older women as those who don't want sex. Well, many of them do continue wanting sex, having sex, and thinking about sex, and we're not really surprised by the results of the study.
The only shocker here is that only half of the women surveyed reported "moderate to high" levels of satisfaction, which means that their partners should brush up on their knowledge of the female body.
