Forget about the title of the Rolling Stones song – “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction.” Yes, you probably can. But as you age, it may take a bit more effort to get there. It’s a fact – our bodies change as we age and some of those changes may be felt in the bedroom. But that doesn’t have to derail any plans. There are ways both men and women can increase sensitivity and desire. We’re talking a win-win for all!
Benefits Of A Healthy Sex Life
We already know that sex is important in a relationship. Numerous studies say a healthy sex life has all kinds of benefits; some may even surprise you. In general, it can help improve both your emotional and physical health. More specifically, it can lead to improved cardiovascular health, lowers blood pressure and helps boost your immune system. It also helps with mood swings and reducing stress, which leads to a better night’s sleep. And who doesn’t need that? It’s also a natural pain reliever.
Intimacy in the bedroom has been shown to strengthen your relationship with your partner, which goes on a long way towards a loving, happy and fulfilling bond. And for men trying to start or expand their family, some studies say regular sex can improve fertility in men! Yes—men can also have infertility issues.
Sexual Stumbling Blocks
Knowing the benefits of a satisfying sex life may have you wondering—how can I get there at my age. First, let’s discuss stumbling blocks that may be preventing you from reaching your bedroom goals from both sides of the aisle.
Let’s start with men. Many challenges can stop you from reaching an optimal sex life, including aging, illness and certain medications — and erectile dysfunction.
For women – a different set of complications. Everything from having a baby – to vaginal dryness – to menopause can impact your sex life or lack thereof. Giving birth vaginally can stretch the vagina, causing many women to complain about having a “looser” vagina and less sensation.
Vaginal dryness can affect women of all ages, especially older women as they go into menopause. This could also lead to soreness and painful sex. Naturally, all of this can contribute to a drop in self-confidence in the bedroom, which translates to less sex or even no sex at all.
But even if you’re not indulging every day — no worries! Doctors say some action is better than nothing at all, especially for women. But they warn, not to go too long without sex. The phrase – “If you don’t use it, you lose it,” is real. When you haven’t had sex for a while, it impacts your vagina.
The Blame Game
It seems there’s lots of shared blame. But moving forward, how can you rev up your sex life? There are several available options for men to help improve their sexual performance.
