Yes, great sex in your fifties and beyond is possible!  Have you gotten in a rut in your longtime marriage?  Are you feeling less than sexy as you age?  Maybe your body doesn’t respond as it once did as hormones seem to control our minds and bodies starting in our late forties.   

I bet if you look back at some of your most satisfying sexual experiences, you will remember they came with careless abandon.  Meaning you probably weren’t thinking about much else other than how great it felt.  Not just the sex part, but the intimacy with someone you felt great attraction to and love for.   

As we age we tend to overthink things and let life gets in between us and passion.  We fall asleep watching the evening news.  We forget how much a little caress or touch means to our partner.  We underestimate the excitement brought on by a well-timed provocative text message.  In short, we put our libidos to sleep.  Guess what?  Having sex makes you want more sex!  Not having sex becomes routine.   

Studies have shown that couples that have sex into their 50’s and beyond our healthier both physically and mentally.   Some of the benefits (other than the obvious) are: 

1) . You sleep better!  Arousal and orgasm release the hormone oxytocin (“the cuddle hormone”) and decrease cortisol (“the stress hormone”), shutting down areas of the brain linked to stress, fear and anxiety.  

2) You strengthen your relationship!    Even after 40 years of marriage, sexually active pairs consistently report higher levels of marital satisfaction, according to a 2014 study of 500 couples ages 58 to 85. And sex in this study didn’t necessarily mean intercourse. Cuddling, hugging and kissing all help, says University of Chicago sociologist Linda Waite.  

3) You look Younger! Couples who have sex three times a week look 10 years younger, according to research by neuropsychologist David Weeks of Scotland’s Royal Edinburgh Hospital. Why? Possibly it’s the hormones released during sex, or because people who have more sex pay more attention to their appearance, diet and exercise.  

4) . You feel happier! The more sex people have, the happier they report feeling overall, says a 2013 Social Indicators Research report. Those having sex two to three times a week were 33 percent happier than those who’d had no sex in the past year, says sociologist Tim Wadsworth at the University of Colorado Boulder. 

 Getting back in the saddle doesn’t have to be hard.  In fact if you make it feel like work, or put too much pressure on your partner, it will feel like something to avoid rather than enjoy.  Here are some tips that you might try to get “sexy time” back on the agenda.   

1) . Don’t assume your partner isn’t interested in sex anymore.  He or she may be hesitant to suggest lovemaking if a long time has passed and you haven’t approached the subject.  

2) . Talk about your fantasies.  We all have them.  Nothing will turn the heat up faster than sexy talk about dirty dreams!  It doesn’t mean you must act out your fantasies.  Just talking about them can be enough. 

3) Touch each other often in a non-sexual way.  Hold that hug a little longer.  Open your mouth when you kiss.  Playfully swat that behind when no one is looking.  Your partner will feel desired and cared for. 

4) . Schedule date nights that include romance.  Just because your kids may be gone and nights out can happen whenever you want doesn’t mean they shouldn’t be special.  A restaurant with a romantic atmosphere, some wine and candlelight, feeding each other desert.  Try to remember the way you seduced your partner at the beginning of your relationship and do it again! 

5) Take a bubble bath or simply lie in bed naked together.  Intimacy leads to sex.  Sometimes just being close and vulnerable will get the fire burning.   

6) Bring in reinforcements!  Sometimes we all need a little help.  Whether it be massage oil, lubricant, or toys, remember there is a tool for every job!

 Most importantly, love yourself.  Sometimes the sexiest thing in a partner is self-love.  Wear that bright shade of lipstick and those high heels. Take your health and fitness to the next level because you deserve it.  Be the object of your own desire.   YOU ARE AMAZING!
