5 Ways Sex Gets Better With Age
Did you just say that you’re too old for sex? Oh, shut up! This is when it begins to get better. Don’t believe us? Read on!When we imagine sex, women think of sensual foreplay, and men jump straight to the ‘twiggy-in-jiggy’ section. That all is great, but admit it, we never imagine a 50-something, slightly overweight couple with grey hair, doing it on the kitchen table. Especially us Indians, who expect only people between 25 and 35 to have sex; because 22 (unless you’re married) is too young, and 40 is plain revolting. Who fixed this 10-year window for sex? We’ve might’ve been brought up to be intellectual and forward, but we’re damn right nincompoops if we cannot handle two 70-year-old adults making love.
Think about it...isn’t it beautiful that they’re still in love with each other? Or in lust?
I suppose it has more to do with how we’ve conformed to the idea of perfect bodies – no flab, no wrinkles, no freckles…everything is planned, practiced, and flawlessly executed; except the idea, which is a flaw in itself. Sex isn’t supposed to be about perfection, it’s supposed to be about two bodies gliding and grinding against each other in passion, appreciating the other person, loving their little quirks, and laughing off all the mishaps. And may you have plenty of those – slip in the shower when you’re lathering soap on each other, queef in absolute pleasure...bite, fart, fall, have the time of your lives, because that’s what it’s all about.
I don’t mean to preach; I just mean to state that there’s a reason why studies have proven that sex gets better with age. Think about it. Actually, allow me to do all the thinking. You just have to keep reading to find the supporting arguments, and bang on statistical proofs.
We gain confidence – As we get older, we feel surer of ourselves; we believe in ourselves, and gain pride in our looks and our individuality. Gone are the days when we felt awkward and bony in the backseat of our boyfriend’s Maruti. We're grown women now, and with an added sense of confidence, sex can only get better.
We're not afraid to ask for what we want – Now that we've aged, seen the world, and had a multitude of experiences, we're no longer afraid to ask for what makes us feel good. With apprehension out of the window, we're much more inclined to receive things we desire in the bedroom.
Sex is slower – While the younglings can become lubricated in only a few seconds, it takes longer for an older woman to attain the same level of lubrication. This inevitably slows the entire act of sex down. As a result, slower, more powerful sex takes place, that is definitely satisfying for both parties.
We're more trusting – In both ourselves and the people we bed. As a teenager, sex isn’t just about the physical act; it has meaning to us, since we've been socially conditioned to link sex with feelings of love. Now that we're older, we can appreciate the act as both a physical demonstration of lust, as well as our personal ability to choose a partner we can trust.
Both partners are more skilled – Having/being an experienced partner can add greatly to the sexual act as a whole. After years of trying different positions, locations, and sex toys, we begin to truly comprehend what works for us and what doesn’t. It takes practice, diligence, and a butt-load of bad experiences those acquire the skills, and we’d be more than happy to show them off.
