Too old for Sex?

Is 50 too old for men to enjoy sex and perform as well as younger men?

While most of us look forward to the honor and privilege of turning 21, some say that some men are now eagerly anticipating "The Big 5-0. So, what’s so good about turning 50? No, it’s not that 50 is the new 40 or 30, but rather if you’re one of the guys, you can look forward to "the best sex you’ve ever had".

You must think that's a crazy statement. Well, forget about the fables praising 18 year old (young) bucks for being the best between the sheets, it now seems (according to studies) that more mature "stallions" have more fun in bed. In fact research shows that men in their 50 have better sex lives than those in their 30s or 40s and just as good (if not better) than those in their 20. That’s because, say experts, men at this age are settled in their lives and careers and have the confidence they need to enjoy sex with comfortable confidence instead of trying to live up to or exceed expectations often stressing them out about frequency and performance.

Also according to recent research, not only do men in their "younger" years have too much stress and anxiety over sex (as well as relationships, family life, and careers), they are also too overwhelmed and "immature" to enjoy it (when it happens). Especially if they are in a stable relationship and/or have been for a while, these mature men, not only have peace of mind about who and what they are, but exude a quite and subtle "sex appeal" that draws their mate closer to them and that allows them to (finally) allow their body and mind to relax and (pardon the pun) enjoy the ride.

What is slightly "ironic" though is that the results also showed a significant correlation between age and reduced sexual functioning, but increased sexual satisfaction. To increase your "sexual functioning", try exercising regularly, don't be afraid of using pills such as viagra, or cialis. Consult your doctor first before trying any kind of sexual enhancement drugs.
