Older Men More Satisifed With Their Sex Lives

Men in their 50s are more satisfied with their sex lives than men in their 30s, a new study shows.

Findings from the study, published in BJU International, include:

--Men’s sexual function (sex drive, erection, ejaculation) tends to fade with age.

--Men’s sexual satisfaction peaks when men are in their 20s.

--Men in their 50s are a close second in sexual satisfaction.

In short, men reported sexual satisfaction long after the heyday of their youth had passed.

“Our results show that although men experience more problems and less sexual function as they get older, it doesn’t necessarily follow that they are less satisfied with their sex lives as a result,” says researcher Sophie Fossa, MD, PhD, in a news release.

Fossa is a professor at Norway’s University of Oslo.

It's interesting, sure is. I largely agree with it, they know what turns them on and they're not afraid of going for that. Maybe the marriage factor isn't so prevalent at that age. Usually single older males have been involved prior and seek to have a relaxed time.

A totally different approach to sex compared to the approach of a thirty year old male or even younger.
