Sex Advice for Older Women

Your sex life will dramatically change as you age. In fact, many older women lose the urge to have sex and experience other sexual dysfunctions at the onset of menopause. However, you can address these changes and have a healthy and satisfying sex.

Communicate with your partner

Good sex requires open communication between partners. Be open to your partner about the difficulties you might have in bed. If a certain sexual position discomforts you, tell your partner about it. Treat these difficulties as problems both of you can solve. Remember to always work together when finding creative solutions to your sexual problems.

Use water-based lubricants

As your body ages, your natural lubrication for intercourse decreases. There is an easy and quick fix to this problem: water-based lubricant. Applying a lubricant for a sexual intercourse may seem awkward at first. But as you and your partner get used to it, you will see what wonder it can bring to your sex life. You can even incorporate the lubricant into foreplay.

Try different sexual positions

Many older women suffer from pain brought by arthritis or other conditions. This can potentially ruin your sex life. But you can address this problem by experimenting with different positions until you find one that works best. In addition, since arthritis and other health pain conditions associated with aging attack only in certain times of the day, try to have sex when the pain is least severe.

Always feel beautiful

The social construction of what or who is beautiful takes so much toll on women, especially older women. As they age, older women may see themselves far less sexually attractive than they were in their youth. This kind of thinking has a negative impact on sexual desire.

So if you want to have a satisfying sex life as you age, do not be influenced the beauty myths. Ignore stereotypes and messages from TV, magazines, billboards, and other media sources. Love your body no matter what.

Do not feel guilty of vibrators and masturbation

Even the most sexually active man in his twenties or thirties will have less desire for sex as he ages. Given the physiological limitations, an older man may not always be there when his partner wants to have sex. Masturbation using sex toys like vibrators is one way for an older man to achieve orgasm in an absence of a partner. You should not feel guilty about it. It is completely normal.
