Sex Gets Better with Age

We think of sex as the province of people in their childbearing years. That is indeed a natural drive for the species to procreate, and the underlying goal is to find a suitable mate for procreating with. But that's only part of the story. You'd never know it from today's pop culture, but people don't stop enjoying sex when they get older. In fact, they will enjoy it even more than when they were young; they just don't talk about it nearly as much. 

There are a lot of reasons for this. Maturity makes you stop worrying about your appearance or performance and start appreciating the emotional side of sex. Also, you naturally get better with practice. There are other factors within these categories, and plenty of other reasons why sex becomes better with age. Psychologist and sex therapist Joel Block lays out the many ways sex can become better when you are in your 40, 50s, 60s, and beyond at Psychology Today. Now, if we could just get men to take better care of themselves so they can live long enough to learn this for themselves, the world would be better off. -via Real Clear Science
