Re: Male and female sexual peaks
I reckon it doesnt really peak at a certain age. Well it does if you count a certain characteristic as a peak!
I reckon it just changes all the time, there can be periods in a persons life where their sex drive drops to really low, then other times it goes mad. Certainly since I discovered sexual feelings at about age 12, the nature of those feelings has changed, the frequency, the areas of the brain that the feelings seem to hit. I am now 25 by the way, so I have a long way to go hopefully on this ever changing path!
On the other hand I suppose there are very real hormonal changes etc that the body undergoes which will cause certain peaks of desire etc. When I read about this subject years ago, I too read that boys peaked at around 16 -18 and women in their 40's. This upset me at the time, I thought I'd wasted my prime years, but it has not proven to be so to date <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/wink.gif">
