Do Older Women Really Make Better Lovers?

As a woman on the cusp of 50, do you think I’m going to say no?

I’ll be 47 in September. I’ll admit, I’m not exactly looking forward to adding another number to the growing pile associated with my age, but have been pleasantly surprised with what this has meant for my libido in the past few years.

I’m not alone.

Most women I talk to see an uptick in sexual prowess in their late 30s and early 40s. And it doesn’t have to stop there. I know women in their 50s and 60s who are still enjoying all life has to offer in the sexual arena.

When my ex and I were part of the swinging lifestyle, there were ladies in their 70s actively participating regularly in those weekend gatherings. These women didn’t let age stop them from partaking in all things sensual and could usually run circles around their male counterparts 20 and 30 years their junior.

It should come as no surprise as we get older, we get wiser. At least, some of us do. We learn things we thought as younger people just simply aren’t true. I was one of those sadly mistaken younger folks who thought my parents only had sex to produce myself and my brother.

I just knew my grandparents couldn’t possibly be having sex in their 50s or gods help me, their 60s.
