A woman is never too old for sex

July 25, 2017

Lately, I find myself people-watching, and what I have noticed is that the ageing process seems to be slowing down for many of us.

When I was a child, a woman in her 50s was old. She has wrinkles and wears a scarf on her head and hums when she walks, and not someone that you think of that still engages in sex.

In 2017, a woman in her 50s is athletic, vibrant, wears modern clothes that show off her figure and she is certainly still very interested in sex.

So why it is that society has decided that when a woman gets to a certain age basically after menopause that she just stops having sex?

We have accepted that men will still be sexual in their old age. As a matter of fact, there are several products that exist to help him get an erection in his old age. But for some reason, the idea of a grandmother being sexual is a source of discomfort for most persons. Why is that? Why do we expect women to stop being sexual after a certain age?




For men, their sexual peak is earlier in life, while women are more sexually confidence later. By the time a woman hits menopause, she starts to experience vaginal dryness, and even though she may feel aroused, sexual intercourse can be painful without lubrication.

For women who still want to maintain an active sex life after menopause, there are treatments from hormone replacement therapy to using intimate lubrications.

The rules and norms of society are forever changing, and this includes how we look at older women when it comes to sexuality. While some suffer from illnesses that will affect their ability to actually function sexually, for the healthy older women, sex is still on the menu.

With continued advances in medicine, women are living longer, and they are overall healthier than the generation before them.

Ladies, here are some things you can do to keep our libido buzzing: exercise, have a healthier diet, masturbate, indulge in fun activities like dancing, and communicate your sexual desires to your partner.

At the end of the day, there is no such thing as too old for sex. As long as the desire is present and the body can deliver, get your freak on, grandma. If you need extra help, consult your medical professional and have fun with it.
