Libido after 50Page 2 of 14    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14)
Something's not adding up here....once a year is excessive, once a decade is about right.

It's like the old yellow dog that just sits on the front porch and watches the shiny new sports car go by twice a day:

"Even if I caught it, I wouldn't know what to do with it."

When I was in my mid fifties I was in my first post-divorce ltr. We usually had sex three times a day on Saturdays. Other days it was once or twice a day when we were together. We were each in our first post-divorce relationship and making up for lost time as I see it today. It was wonderful!

Probably because I got even more serious about my health and fitness when I hit fifty I actually have seen an increase in libido since then and it hasn't waned. Women in my family go thru menopause in their late fifties and never have any problems. And I think having a positive attitude and loving life must do something to ones hormones because I could have sex twice a day with no problem.

And I know some hot women over the age of sixty from yoga and other activities whose husbands/partners cannot keep their hands off their women. So I think being fit and healthy and attitude play a huge role. As does smiling, stopping what you are doing and saying YES!!!!! when he asks are you horny?

Hmmm, yoga. I just signed up for some ballroom/salsa classes. Lol. Yoga classes- might very well have some ripe berries there. Lol. Wonder if they have a dress code.

Wow. I see I started that post last Sept. I wondered if after we were together longer if this would change, but so far, we are still in bed as much as possible. I told him last night we had to have sex as much as possible because there is a possibility that some day we would be really old and not want to as much!

Good grief, I'm getting left out of the gene-pool ~ I'd say son, but that would be a tad too young for me I'd guess, so I guess I'll have to inquire about co-workers or friend's of a friend.

~OT~ I've only been with one man over 50 and he was certainly willing, able and more than capable.

Testosterone which supplies the body with sperm and libido works on a negative feedback system so the more you use the more your own body will be inspired to replenish itself , this seems like a exception though not reality.

At the big 50...If the libido here gets any better it's going to be found to be illegal. I have always been a horn dog but in the last few years it's totally increased.

Gee, no wonder that a serious desire for a monogamous relationship is years off.

Hey, just let lose and enjoy. Why wonder why. In life that is one little pleasure that is all yours. Everyone is different and every couple is diffent. Some get more enjoyment in quanity and some just have great fun in the not so frequent times but make it all so good. Key to all of this is to talk to each other. Everything in life has peeks and valleys. Life is all so short and can change is the blink of an eye. Get pleasure and love the one your with. Just me. And some just come into their own later in life. And sometimes it is just the person they are with. Kissing releases harmones and starts the dance. If you have it just enjoy it I say. I am managomous and those don't need to read anything into my thoughts as I am very picky. I know if we truly know our own bodies we can really enjoy life for what it is.

Men and woman have such different issues. Being healthy helps at any age. Over 50 odds are that we are not looking for a baby daddy, and no longer even have to worry about that. So let lose and enjoy your life. Really just enjoy your life. Sex is healthy in many areas of our life.

Friendly Lady,


I've had a healthy libido all my life and expect to have it until the day I die.......


I agree totally. In fact, since I've hit my fifties, even more so.


......but only in a monogamous relationship..............


I agree with this too. I've never been one for multi-tasking.

In my fifties we tried to beat our record of five times in one day but were just too bushed. As age caught up, Viagra came to the rescue by prolonging the event which made it pleasurable for both of us. Its nothing to be ashamed of. It will eventually catch up with all of you. Thank God for the new medicines!

Is it common for someone 57 years old to want sex almost every day or sometimes twice a day??


Clearing my throat a little here. It is very normal to want it twice or more times a day when you are in your 50's.. Once a week is very abnormal!!!

This may be explosive but this was posted earlier. My question is: Ladies, how appropriate would this question be? My initial guess is somewhat negative. However, in the early stages of dating both want to find out if they are as close a match as possible. Perfect matches, obviously, only happen on TV and in movies.

I'm not into sex on the first date or very early on but once it happens it has a way of connecting people (no pun intended ) emotionally and then to find out incompatability in this area can be a real disappointment once it happens. Especially if the previous spouse was low in the labido arena. Like every other subject to be discussed and explored is this a valid inquiry?

Someone want to tell me how to post on these forums WITHOUT hitting the post reply button.

Oh and whatever you do don't take Celexa/Cymbalta if you want to continue to have a healthy libido

Thing is, David, if you don't ask, you won't know. And not knowing leads to a lot of pain, one way or the other, eh? Asking is vital, as is telling. And as early as you think there is a real chance of a connection.

Good luck!

Twice a day? Better have him checked out.

Personally, I've lost my sex drive... I'm down to masturbating only five or six times a day. If there was a woman around, I'm sure I would pick up the pace.
