Challenges of Boomer Sex

Reality
 

The brain is the body's most important sex organ. Stress, anxiety, self-esteem issues, negative past experiences, lifestyle demands, loss of loved ones, and relationship conflicts can weigh on us and we want to touch on these aspects.
 
During the last few decades, we have all been focused on, kids careers and ageing parents. Our partner relationships have suffered, and we have all endured periods of limited or no sexual activity and may questions even things still work!
 
Communication: Sex does not fix relationship issues but rather the lack of sex can suggest that there are relationship issues. During those two or three decades were Kids and things dominated our conversations we spent little time talking about us. We all change physically, and conditions such as vaginal dryness and softer erections should not be viewed as a lack of desire as opposed to natural changes but can foster feelings of resentment or doubt and if left unanswered. Great sex starts with excellent communication.
 
 
 

Body Image and Self Esteem can be a leading factor to relationship issues. Great sex is often the outgrowth of a deep emotional connection — something that's not guaranteed by having a perfect body. Lack of Self-esteem can be attributed to career setbacks, the loneliness of an empty house or by performance issues and no pill instantly resolves these issues.
 
 


 
Bad news
 


 
As good as orgasms are, they become harder to achieve with ageing. Both sexes find they take longer to get aroused and slower to reach orgasm.
 
• Women have less blood flow to the clitoris and produce less lubrication, and pliability in the vaginal walls. And more attention to Clitoral stimulation to enhance arousal and orgasm.
 
• Men also have less blood flow to the pelvis and require more tactile stimulation to get an erection or may not be able to get an erection at all. Erections may not be firm enough or last long enough for penetration. There is less muscle strength in the pelvic floor for thrusting. Orgasm takes longer to reach.
 
Not to despair—these changes are standard, and they don’t need to put an end to sexual pleasure and orgasm.
 
 
 
 


Good news
 

Like red wine, certain things can get better with age. Don’t think that if you’re in the over-50 crowd, you must settle for a less-than-fulfilling sex life. You can still enjoy sex; you just may have to put a little more planning into it than you did when you were younger.
 
Recent studies show that people maintain active sex lives well into their later years. According to one recent survey, more than half of men and almost a third of women over the age of 70 reported they were still sexually active. (we want to make that number higher)
