Why Sex in Your 50’s Can be Some of the Best Ever!

Sex is a powerful emotional experience, a great tool for protecting or improving health, and a whole lot of fun. And it's certainly not only for the young! Sex is not a question of age, but one of desire.

The need for intimacy is ageless. And studies now confirm that no matter what your gender, you can enjoy sex for as long as you wish. Naturally, sex at 50 may not be like it is at 20 or 30—but in some ways it can be even better. As an older adult, you may feel wiser than you were in your earlier years, and know what works best for you when it comes to your sex life. Mature people often have a great deal more self-confidence and self-awareness, and feel released from the unrealistic ideals of youth and prejudices of others. And with children grown and work less demanding, people are better able to relax and enjoy one another without the old distractions.

For a number of reasons, though, some people worry about sex in their later years, and end up turning away from sexual encounters. We say don’t! Sex is great at any age. Whether you’re seeking to restart or improve your sex life, it’s important to be ready to try new things. Your later years can be an exciting time to explore both the emotional and sensual aspects of your sexuality. In fact, sex can be more enjoyable than ever.

There’s no more sweating the small stuff like you did when you were a neurotic basket-case of hormones. The independence and self-confidence that comes with age can be incredibly attractive to potential partners. No matter your gender, you may feel better about your body at 52 ,or 72 even, than you ever did at 22. You now know way more about yourself and what makes you excited and happy. Now all you have to do is take it.

You might not be as comfortable with some sexual positions as you once were, but that doesn’t mean you need to give up an activity that is pleasurable for you (then again, you may still be as supple as a gymnast you lucky thing). Keep in mind that it’s not all about recreating the way things were when you were younger. The key to a great sex life is finding out what works for you now. Sex when you are older may call for some creativity but that’s all part of the fun - enjoy it.

Yes sex should be fun at any age. Age is all in the mind, it's just a number. With age comes experience.. it's less hectic but sometimes no less hormone driven.. but that isn't a bad thing..I most enjoy meeting people of similar mindsets.. being able to to discuss sex in a comfortable environment and enjoy the exchange..can't wait to meet more people..

For me definetly sex has no age limit, as the writer was saying the older u get the wiser u will get in exactly what pleases u and what exictes u more in sexual encounters. The word Being Mature differes from being mature in daily routines or if u mean maturness in sex.So when a person is mature in sex he or she than can know how to be pleased and please his or her partner wisely.Never give up in whatever age u arrive always lick stuck and feel there is no pleasure that is better than self satusfaction Enjoyyyy and Be Happy Always....

Sexual satisfaction makes life hustle free

The best sexy I have had was with a sexy 66 year old lady, she was so at ease with herself it was amazing, don't knock age it is great when people have got to know themselves and how to enjoy themselves with others..

Enjoy sex even more now in the later part of fifties, just can not get enough need more like minded females here in Jersey ?? .

Oh please bring back the old emogies they were more fun 

Simply great. Enjoy sex in your own way whatever may be your age, after all you are going to live only once.


Oh yes. Lovely article. If you love sex, then age is just number. In fact as grew up 40+, I unknowingly started making a focused effort to stay fit and enjoy sex even more.
