Contrary to what we usually see in the movies, maybe the best sex of our lives isn’t the sex we have in our twenties. A recent Huffington Post article by Patti Brisben, founder of Pure Romance sex-toy party company, says there’s one thing older couples have that younger couples don’t: intimacy.
Here are two of her reasons:
• In a long-term committed relationship, trust has been built up for years, so individuals, especially women, experience a higher level of emotional and physical closeness, which contributes to more satisfying sex. In fact, according to a recent study targeting females from researchers from the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine and the Veterans Affairs San Diego Healthcare System, 61 percent of sexually active older women said they are satisfied with their sex lives and reported high frequency of arousal and orgasm compared to their younger counterparts.
• If you’re still working, and lucky enough to have reached a point in your career where you have financial stability, that may mean less stress and more disposable income to spend on romantic dinners, vacations, and sassy lingerie. Create a romantic bucket list with your partner; experiencing new activities together will help to create and reinvigorate your bond.
Hear that, ladies? Sounds like the perfect excuse to go shopping or treat yourself and your spouse to a night out.
