Many things change as you approach midlife and enter the years beyond. Sex is one of them. It could become a little bit more difficult, a little bit more awkward and a little bit less desirable.
Being prepared for the changes and knowing how to address them is one of the essentials for having a fulfilling sex life in your 50s and 60s.
Understand The Common Sexual Issues
A few sexual issues will have a profound impact on both desire and performance in midlife.
Self-perception is probably the most important one. Many men see changes in their bodies in their 50s and 60s. These changes aren’t always positive. The accumulation of body fat, decreased muscle mass and loss of hair are incredibly typical but they can destroy a man’s self-confidence.
Another common issue is sexual desire. A decrease in testosterone may lead to a lower sex drive than ever before. It’s also important to pay attention to your partner’s sex life. If she has undergone menopause, chances are that her libido will also be affected.
Finally, performance could suffer due to aging. This is the period during which some men start experiencing issues like erectile dysfunction. The good news is that such issues can be addressed. You don’t have to suffer in silence and enable ED to be determining for your sex life from now on.
Improve Your Health
The healthier you are, the more exciting sex you’ll get to enjoy. Human beings are created to enjoy sex throughout their life. There’s a wrong societal belief that older people aren’t sexual beings. This doesn’t have to be case.
Get in the habit of working out. Exercise will help you maintain healthy weight. In addition, working out boosts testosterone levels and it gives you the stamina to do more physically-challenging sexual things.
Improve your diet. Up the intake of fruits, vegetables, sources of Omega-3 fatty acids, lean proteins and wholegrains. Apart from helping you maintain a good weight, a healthy diet will also improve your hormonal balance, strengthen the cardiovascular system and give you energy.
Redefine Your Understanding Of Sex
Many people have a pretty narrow perception of sex. It usually involves vaginal penetration. This type of sex, however, is just one of the possibilities.
Men in their mid-life can definitely explore a huge range of additional possibilities. Sex is any type of intimate contact that gives one or both partners involved some pleasure.
A sensual massage, oral sex, foreplay, mutual masturbation, genital rubbing, the use of sex toys and even telephone sex can be used to spice things up. If penetration is difficult or painful for one of the partners, it can easily be replaced with much more satisfying sexual options.
Do Male Enhancement Exercises
Apart from working out your body to keep it healthy, you should consider working out your penis. Male enhancement exercises can be used to accomplish an array of goals and they’re particularly beneficial for guys in their 50s and beyond.
Kegel exercises are also great for guys in their 50s and 60s. Actually, both men and women can improve their sex lives by doing kegel exercises. These strengthen the pelvic floor muscles, giving women more pleasure during sex.
In men, the pelvic floor muscles control the strength of the ejaculatory contractions.
Both older men and women can see improvements in their sexual control by doing enhancement exercises. These can also contribute to much more powerful orgasms.
The final thing to remember is talking to your partner. Being open and honest about sex can strengthen your relationship. Be open and honest about the changes and about the way these make you feel.
The sooner you have such a conversation, the easier you’ll find it to enjoy amazing sex regardless of your age.
