Just wondering if as a man gets older say 45+ does his sex dirve slow down? If so how much?
It depends on the man. I dated a guy whos sex drive started to decrease in his early 30's. :frown1: That sucked, cause I was 3 years younger than him and mine was just starting to increase. :irked:
Plateaus at 18 and doesn't slow down.
I find that when I am active it increases and being happy helps as well. I became depressed and inactive in my late twentys and got it back together at thirty. My sex drive is compareable to my drive at sixteen. I could easily do it eight or nine times a day. If I didnt have to work. lol
I don't know that the 18 thing is necessarily true. I'm 35 and I think my sex drive is the strongest it's ever been.
No signs of slowing down, lol.
I mean that's when it starts... and it's a plateau till they die.
53 here...mine may be at its highest ever...i see no slow down in my future
i asked my grandmother that one day. she said your grandfather hasnt slowed down a bit. my grandpa is 79 yrs old. i said grandma i didnt need to know that part of it. she just laughed
Once one has come to a full appreciation of one's sexuality and has somehow managed to fit that in with the totality of one's life, I suspect one experiences have a way of allowing one to impart a calmer outlook. At thirty my sex drive was alive and well but it was also carefully directed toward my partner in marriage. In a loving and committed relationship minor blips are survived and the partners continue to pursue the satisfaction of the other. Partners adjust to each others needs Changes will come, but, if my partner and I should be so fortunate in reaching our nineties, I fully expect that we will be enjoying ourselves and each other sexually. I know a few couples who have reached that age and still seem happy and radiant in each other's presence. I have no idea of how much actual sex they have, but they have love for each other in great abundance.
When a relationshp is strong, human beings are equipped to cope with the problems associated with aging. I have found that retirement heightened my sex drive and that of my partner as well. Two in love have a way of keeping the level high and I do not anticipate the need for Viagra anytime soon.
Untill a day or so ago I would have said yes, it slows down with age.
But in the last 24 hrs I proved myself wrong!
It all depends on so many factors, and age is just one of them.
Nope!! It's still going strong in high gear....
Actually, I think it gets stronger as I age...:shrug: :veryhappy:
Upper age doesn't reduce the sex drive or erotic desire for us older guys, but aging may affect one's ability to get it up and keep it up. At 73 years I still have a great libido and function well manually or with a partner. Almost every morning I wake up with a firm erection, and experience them during the day too. However, they don't last long, and I use viagra to boost the blood supply to my penis, so it will last for an hour of good sex. I watch my diet and work out daily at a gym, where my package gets a lot of attention in the shower room. That gives me a lift too. I've never smoked, which my urologist says benefits me. Guys should be selective with the food they eat, and exercise for good body health. According to my doc, smoking and cholesterol are a sure way to lose your erectile ability earlier than normal.
All depends on how active the gent is.if he's a couch potato,it'll dwindle to nothing as his waistline increases but,if he's very active his sex drive will remain intact.Hell,i just turned 44 and im hornier than when i was 24.:biggrin1:
January 20,2009 for me
Me too. I'll be one of those dirty old men with uncontrollable libidos trolling about.
I think it depends on the guy. I've had a couple of instances of guys older (and around my age) with much lower sex drives than mine (which is frustrating for me!) but they also both had chronic health problems. I think probably the health problems have more to do with the decrease in sex drive than the age does. Unfortunately, the guy I just started dating now (no sex yet) also has a chronic health condition. :frown1: (I tend to attract people with health problems, both for dating and even for platonic friendships - nearly all my friends have serious health problems of one kind or another...)
I hope to find me a dirty old man when I become a dirty old woman! :biggrin1:
The same age the first kid arrives.
61 here - no libido problem. My gf is 24 and perhaps that helps a lot - I feel 25 or so.
