well Im not over 40 (yet) but pretty derned close to it (39) and my sex drive continues to increase as I get older. At this rate, I'll be a nympho by 50. LOL I think a part of it that plays into the drive is the quality of sex. Mediocre sex, your drive is going to go down... awesome sex, and it goes up. That's my theory anyway.... whether it's true or not, I don't know but I'll choose to believe it.

Yeah, no. The old sex-drive just keeps getting stronger and stronger without any sign of slowing down. And I like it that way......

Well for me it has certainly increased as I hit my 40's, maybe it has to do with being more comfortable in my skin as I get older, but have to say it's been fun.

Yeah, buckle your seat belt. That's why really old guys are with twentysomethings - their hearts can't handle it anymore. Date a red head around 40 for a while and tell us how long you were passed out from exhaustion. Just pray that SHE is not the one reanimating you - that would be the beginning of round two.

I am 45, and yes my sex drive is.. errr... high! I wonder though- is it because of my age or because I have the freedom to focus on it now?? My kid is almost grown, my guy is in the same spot. When we are together, there are no kids around, fewer worries- we are free to indulge ourselves. That coupled with a degree of comfort in our own bodies gives a freedom we may not have experienced before. I'm not saying its one thing or the other but I do think there may be more to it than just maturity?

@ the above ^^^^^ post!

Au contraire "grass hopper"! Don't know where you are getting your info "Alpha Man", but you have it oh soooo wrong!

My libido is in high gear, and I'm loving it.....AND I'm way past your stated designated age of 26-30.....AND I'm not compensating for a damn thing!

Na, it is ascientific fact that a woman is in her sexual peak at 26-30. You must remember these things a are studied. I believe women start feeling old and try to compensate.


Sounds like one of us old ladies shot you down chief! And I see you want a younger woman...they must not what you either! You're a 35 yr old male who, from the looks of it, AIN'T a doctor...you don't know jack.

OP, it varies from woman to woman. There is no hard and fast rule--it's how YOU feel that counts. I'm 45 and my libido ratcheted up 1 MILLION notches around 42. Am I more free? No...I have no kids and am still of childbearing age. It's hormones. But my flip side is that I'm contending with the possibility of early menopause (joy).

Enjoy yourself--sensibly obviously--but realize that if it DOES chaneg, you're not having issues--your body will only be/do things for so long.




(AFL mumbles 26-30...aren't some of those girls the ones on girls gone wild videos, kissing other women to screw with guys like him?)

Not that I have noticed. I hear stories but so far, no actual proof. I think it's all big talk. I dare someone to prove it, come what may.

Ah, another of the male persuasion whose empirical evidence is contrary to the above posted assertions by those who are the subject of this query. farceur, is it possible that we knewthe same woman?

Anyway, perhaps in my second life I'll meet up with one of those women whose libido hasn't withered and died. Just hope my heart can handle it.

I have noticed that there is one think that significantly decreases a woman’s sex drive, and that is the consuming of Wedding Cake!

It gets stronger and better with every additional candle on my birthday cake.

I don't doubt many women feel a reduction in sexual desire when they age but based on what my friends told me its more a factor of no longer being attracted to their sloth-like, selfish, unkempt husbands than plummeting hormones.

I am over 40 and ...
OMG Mine is OFF THE CHARTS!!!!.... can anyone please
My "drive" has always been an 11 on a scale of 1-10 , but it's gone into overdrive since around mid thirties. I usually date younger guys but even they cannot keep up.
Is there any type of pill for this??... it is RIDICULOUS!!!!

rotflmao...are you kidding??!? =) I call BS on that. Really, get your facts straight. Studies support no such thing. Men peak between 18-early to mid 20s..women much later...30's or 40's..Of course, you can have a fulfilling , healthy sex drive/sex life at any age. If anything, women become more comfortable in their own skin, enhancing sexuality and even drive..into their late 30s and early 40s. I'm 44 and mine has continually increased since my mid 20s...much more so in my late 30s...no signs of slowing down, lucky for me =)

It gets stronger after 35 and keeps going up. :) Not sure when it peaks but I do have friends in their 50s who say theirs is decreasing. Hope mine doesn't! haha

I think there's a difference between sex drive and sexual response. While an older woman may not spend as much time fantasizing about or craving sexual activity (note, I said "may not"), the right situation can bring her straight into high gear. What we all crave is touch. When you've gone a long time without it, the longing for touch can be as intense as an adolescent's longing for sex.

Guess the doctors are just as confused as the women!!
My (female) doctor tells me it's quite normal that I'm feeling overly sexual.
And most my g/f's that are of the same age as myself say they have increased libido's over the past few years.
Only one that doesn't........has been married for 30 years and admits if she is just bored with the same routine.

Yeah some lazy ass man who couldn't get it up probably started the rumour that a womens drive slows in age so he had an excuse not to get it up!
It actually goes up from what I have experienced and heard!
