Here are a few tips for enjoying sex after 60.

Sex after 60: As spicy as ever!

According to various studies that have been published in the New England Journal of Medicine, men and women remain sexually active and satisfied throughout their lives – but you knew that! With age comes added benefits – retirement means you have more time to spend in bed, and the kids are grown and out of the house, leaving you to enjoy your time uninterrupted.

Here are a few tips for enjoying sexual intimacy with your significant other after you turn 60:

  • Do it while you have energy: Our sex drives naturally ebb and flow throughout the day, something that does not change as we age. Track the parts of the day when you are most in the mood, and be sure to have sex then.
  • Put yourself in the mood: According to Joan Price, a popular sex author, couples should be having sex regularly even if they are not in the mood. Price says that, as we age, the overwhelming hormonal drive that leads us to crave sex dissipates slightly. You should not wait for the desire to be there, but instead get things going anyway, as the arousal will follow.
  • Schedule sex: Spontaneity for older couples is overrated, according to Price. You will need time to get aroused and enjoy the time bonding with your partner, so having a few hours set aside is the best scenario. Doing something beforehand to get the blood flowing – such as walking or dancing – will help in a major way.
