Sexual Peak for Women?

I'm having a debate with a friend of mine about this. Does a woman actually reach her peak in her late 30's or early 40's?

Re: Sexual Peak for Women?

Wellll, what is really the difference between, say, 39 and 41? Most sources say that it around that time (late 30s, early 40s). I don't think you can pinpoint an age for anyone and say, yes, you peaked on this date, or.. it will be next year.. or sorry, ya missed it! What I'm saying is it is an age range, more of a vague-ish time than a definite one.

Nope. Not in my case. I was more interested in my late 20's. Now I am just too tired!

Re: Sexual Peak for Women?

Oh! I think I misunderstood I thought the debate was between late 30's and early 40s. Are you saying late 30s/early 40s versus some other time?

Anyway, yup, as I said, research pinpoints women's sexual prime at late 30s to early 40s. It doesn't really refer to a woman's interest in sex, or how many times she wants to do it, it's more about how things are functioning then, responsiveness, ease of climax, etc. For men the sexual peak is around age 18.

Re: Sexual Peak for Women?

I suspect this concept is more related to child bearing and rearing. Women invest thought and concern on a full time basis (24x7) in their family. Men compartmentalize thought, so sex thought is at night when the kids are in bed, while women are still thinking globally about the family and not just sex. Hence, the woman's comment about something totally non-sex related in the middle of foreplay.

A friend once said that a few years after her last child was when she started getting REALLY interested in sex.

Re: Sexual Peak for Women?

My wife just turned 40 and she was quite concerned aboout hitting that milestone. But she has said that she def feels sexier, is dressing to show her body off and most importantly, her sex drive now is off the charts (compared to what it was). She is asking about doing it public places and all the "naugthy" things she wants to try once I get back.

Hopefully this will continue for a while!

My wife actually peaked after I had my vasectomy at age 40, she said she had no more concern about pregnancy.

Re: Sexual Peak for Women?

And I've heard older. I guess there is a range really, so it would depend on the women. It's not like you can say "Every woman hits her sexual peek at 36" or something like that.

Re: Sexual Peak for Women?

I always heard 35, but who knows. I think the main point is every mid thirties girl needs an 18 year old studmuffin to be on equal ground! lol.

Re: Sexual Peak for Women?

I'm almost 33 and I would have to say something is definetly going on. I never thought about/wanted/did it this much in my 20's. Perhaps it's nature's last ditch effort to get us impregnated before menopause? The whole reason we are (scientifically) here is to continue the human race. And why else are we women hornier when ovulating than at any other time during the month? Makes sense.~

Re: Sexual Peak for Women?

interesting question..

I definetly agree there is not a certain age for sexual peak. I think that's a myth of saying that of 30 or 40 whatever. It all depends on the woman. Stress factors, physical fitness, general health status will all influence in the sexual peak. Also I would think it probably influences how attractive and how well your partner performs hehe. As far as Im concerned the sexual drive is influenced by testosterone levels which do they decline at 40? What I have read is something regading Im not sure the vaginal walls or something that become thinner with age but that actually makes orgasms more powerful but Im not sure and I dont remember where online I readed that. I would think if you dont do excersice in your 30's and you get to your 40's you will be a tired whooz and no wonder a sexual drive will decline as consequence. Excercise stimulate testosterone and serotonine hormones important for a healthy sex drive.

Re: Sexual Peak for Women?

I found this answer from doctor Sandos Gardos, they asked him if it was true that women peak at 35.

"This is one of those sound bites that seems to have a life of its own. I have been hearing that one for years, yet it is far from accurate. As far as I can make out, the origin of this oft-quoted statistic is a study that asked men and women of different ages how often they had orgasms. Because of societal messages, women often take longer to feel comfortable with sexuality or learn about their bodies. Many women don't learn how to have an orgasm until later in life.
It really all comes down to how you define "sexual peak." If it is measured by hormone levels, or ease of getting physically aroused, then both men and women peak in their late teens to early 20s. If it is measured by sexual satisfaction, it comes later in life.

Of course, there is a tremendous range in the age at which people feel that they are at their sexual peak. I think that reducing it to the ability to have orgasms easily is a poor definition. I have yet to meet a man or woman in their teens who can compare to an older man or woman in terms of sexual skills or sophistication! "

Yep this makes sense. I was wrong too.
