Ever wondered if your sex life will keep getting better? You might be in luck. Researchers claim that they’ve found the age that women have the best sex of their lives and it’s probably not what you’ve been told before.
The study, conducted by contraceptive app, Natural Cycles, asked 2,600 women of varying ages about their sex lives. The women were split into categories according to their age groups: 23 and younger, 24 to 35 and 36 and above.
Each group were asked questions like: how attractive do you feel? How often do you orgasm? How powerful are your orgasms and how often do you have sex?
The oldest group were found to feel more attractive, enjoy more powerful orgasms and have more regular sex. The secret? Confidence, apparently.
The group in their late 30s and above were found to be most happy in their own skin – 10 per cent higher than the middle age group who were least confident with how they looked. The 23 and younger category scored in the middle of the two groups for how attractive they felt, but they scored the lowest when it came to how frequently they orgasm.
The older women were also found to enjoy sex more often. 86 per cent of them said that they had had satisfying sex over the last month (compared to 76 per cent in the middle group) and, when it came to orgasms, they scored highest with 60 per cent of them saying they frequently enjoy powerful ones.
The conclusion? 36 (and over) is where it’s at.
