sex drive in women over 40Page 4 of 12    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12)
Ladies, obviously our unlearned and uncouth "married" forum commentator is offering his words of wisdom only to stir the pot, so to speak.

If one quits responding to comments made by this type of person eventually they go away to another dating board and share their words of wisdom elsewhere. Put the gas cans away ladies and the fire eventually goes out!

The sex drive for women above 40 has increased. At 20 they only had to drive 5 miles on average to get laid, now it is 12 miles...

Sorry, Texas is still too far at 49 (today) but maybe at 50 it won't be!

Ps I definitely vote for increasing .....and the God's cruel joke thing...definitely driving to Texas next September????

One reason your sex drive can get higher is that when you are in menopause - or close to it - hormones change, and there is an increase in testosterone. You know, the stuff that makes guys think about it all the time. You might have to pluck an odd stray hair here or there because of testosterone - and that's the way the medical profession seems to want us to think of how we react to it - but the fact is, testosterone makes you want it.

Another reason is you get to a point where you no longer have to worry about birth control, no small kids will wake you up in the middle of the night - in other words, you can simply relax and enjoy it - when you're younger, you have a lot of competing interests and concerns making you uptight.

Im over 40 and my sex drive has increased.


Ditto.


What a cruel trick nature has played on us women, that the mans desire decreases with age.


Lol. Would never claim to be "The Man", but maybe your eyesight, or hearing, or other sensors are "decreasing with age". My theory, from my peculiar, narrow vantage point, is that these perceived increases/decreases are relative; in your youth, you probably had to fight men off at every turn, but in your maturity, you are more evenly matched, and just as driven to "get it on". lol Naturally, with your recently whetted appetite, you see a fall-off in demand, or supply, lol, however that works. When you pass another car doing 70mph, and he is doing 60 mph, you have the sense that you are flying by him. In fact, both of you are headed "head"-long toward a probably similar destination. jmho

Decreases? lol... no

I'm at that age where I crave it, and it's been awhile so my frustration level is WAY high. I feel like a pressure cooker whose top is about to blow off.


Huh?!! Wait. You're the "Oops, I did it again" OP, who shoots down every prospect, even before they can get close to your door, whether you like them or not. Too strange for this country mouse.

As women age. estrogen decreases and testosterone increases...We are biologically programmed to want sex more as we get older...In fact I've heard many women say that they now understand in their 40's how a teenage boy must feel!!!....

Muwahahahahahahaha! Heeeeerrrreeee little boy....

This is why us older men, I am 40, are less desired by women in general. And is why women over 40 would rather be with younger men for sex, relationships etc


Not this older woman!
I prefer my men of equivilent age.....and experience.
and if they can't keep up.......they have no issues my toys!!

I just turned 40 a month ago. My sex drive increased DRAMATICALLY at the age of 37. It keeps going up..I haven't had a lot of luck finding a partner who can keep up..and since then, all of my partners have been in their early to mid thirties. Well, there is one guy..but he lives 2 hours from me, so not convenient.

I am frequently contacted by much younger men, but have yet to wander down that path..tho some days I am sorely tempted.

~shrugs~

I just want a partner who is as into it as I am, and who isn't intimidated by my hunger..rather he embraces it and revels in it. Too much to ask for? I hope not.

My sex drive is very high. Some of the relationships I was in,,,I felt like the Ropers from Three's company. She was always the one with the higher libido. I have heard that menopause can make a womans sex drive drop drastically. But that sure isn't the case with me.

I'd sell my soul for you babe

For money to burn with you

I'd give you all, and have none, babe

Just, just, justa, justa to have you here by me

Because,

In the midnight hour she cried- "more, more, more"

With a rebel yell she cried- "more, more, more"


Men will do just about anything to be with such a woman.

Personally, my sex drive has always been high but I think it's more intense now because I am more confident and well, I know what makes me feel good. But perhaps, I was spoiled...fun being spoiled.

My sex drive drastically increased in my forties...to the point of nymphomania! Now, I'm well into my fifties, and it's almost non-existent! Kinda like the calm before the storm...talk about extremes! I believe it has to do with my drop in hormones, due to the fact that I'm on the down side of menopause. My partner is great, but I'm not sure how long he'll remain interested in me. All in all, it's just lousy.... I miss my hormones entirely, and it's not just about the sex drive either. How about introducing libido enhancement for woman, like they've had in Europe for some time? To all of you that aren't dried up and have a strong sex drive...yeahhhhhhh....I hope it continues for you. For me....Ahhhhh yup

As a Men I am always facinated with old ladies, specially around 40 ( i am younger ) and for me i think women are more mature in terms of sex and overall and kind off satisfying around 40
