Changing Sexual and Intimate Relationships After 60

Recently I was talking to a friend who mentioned that he thinks sex ends over 50. I just turned 45 a couple of weeks ago and that idea is kind of disturbing. So, I posted a message on one of my Facebook pages, to see what my friends thought – it was pretty unanimous that your sex life definitely goes past 50 and that it can keep getting better. I’ve got to say – that’s more like it. For the people who wonder how that can be true, read on for some suggestions.

There will be changes in a person’s life as they get older, there is nothing that can be done about it. One of these is that your sexual relationship is going to change. For some people it is for the better and for others it leaves them wishing for their younger days. The people that seem to enjoy sex more as they get older often find that with the reduction of stress in their life they can get more out of it.

They may find they aren’t exhausted anymore because life has slowed down for them. They may be retired now so the daily grind isn’t causing them to go to bed so tired they can’t even think about sex. They have plenty of time to spend looking and feeling good. This means they can spend more time with their partner.

Many people know that a quality relationship on other levels with your partner leads to better sex. You may find that once you have time to spend with each other on fun activities – you enjoy each other more. It can bring an entirely new level of intimacy to the bedroom for you as well.

Many people over 60 that are retired are able to travel. The excitement of seeing new places with your partner can rejuvenate your sex drive as well. Finding new locations for sex or some intimate time alone, can be quite a turn on. Where you are and what activities you enjoy can also play a role in that.

But, let’s be honest, not everyone will have an increase in their sexual behavior as they get older. Some people may want to have sex more often but their body isn’t cooperating. They may find it harder to get or maintain an erection for the act to take place. This can lead to a great deal of embarrassment as well as anxiety.

The body may start to feel older and more worn down too. This can result in a person having less sexual activity than they did before. It can be frustrating when a person isn’t ready to deal with these issues. Sometimes you can get results if you go to a doctor, a therapist, a sexpert or a relationship coach – the one that could help you, depends on the specific problem. Other times you have to come to terms with some changes in your sexual behavior that are simply the result of aging.

Some older individuals become depressed when they find their sexual relationship isn’t what it once was. They may blame themselves for it and need help to cope. Others may become angry at their spouse due to their changed feelings towards sexual activity. It is very important for the relationship to be open enough to discuss such matters.

Dealing with changes in your sexual relationship when you are 60 or older may not be your cup of tea, but you may not have a choice. You may be pleasantly surprised to find that sex gets better for you as you get older. You may also find that the best is behind you. Yet you can still have a good time with it if you are willing to make some adjustments.

Keep in mind that with the help of a sexpert, sex therapist, love coach and/or relationship coach – you can learn ways to help your relationship evolve in order to have a full and satisfying sex life and increased intimacy with your partner, well into your golden years.0
