Nookie better older, say wives
By Paul Gallagher at www.mirror.co.uk
MARRIED women over 40 say they are enjoying the best sex of their lives. As their children grow up and fly the nest, more than three-quarters say romps are better than in their 20s. Most rated their sex life "good", with a delighted 20 per cent calling it "amazing". And almost half say they want sex more than ever - with three in 10 admitting they cannot stop thinking about nookie.
Relationship counsellor and sex expert Julia Cole said: "Older women have a greater capacity for satisfying sex than younger women. They know what they like and won't settle for groping and a lack of experience."
The findings revealed in The National Over 40s Sex Survey 2005 included more than half of all couples saying they had more sex once children left home. It also found that unlike younger women, 75 per cent of over 40s "feel confident about their body during sex" and are "more adventurous in bed". Only 30 per cent think a face-lift, boob job or liposuction would boost their bedroom antics. Of the 2,000 women polled, just nine per cent said sex was better before they got hitched.
Hunk George Clooney was their dream guy over 40. They voted Sharon Stone, star of racy thriller Basic Instinct, the sexiest older woman.A frustrated eight per cent moaned that their current sex life was "non existent".
