At what age do men lose interest in sex?
To the people saying women lose interest in sex after 40 - wow! We must be living on different planets. My friends and I are (almost) all in our 40s. I'm definitely at my sexual peak, which has shown no sign of nadir yet. Most of my friends are busily having babies, and the ones who aren't appear to be busily practising.
We are all much more interested in sex, and enjoying it more, than we ever have in our lives. I only know of one who has gone off sex with her husband, rather than off sex itself. Perhaps the women you mention just don't like the sex they've been having, rather than not liking sex itself.
Are the women in their 40s you know unhealthy? Anyone who is obese or has some other worrisome medical condition may not be interested in sexual intercourse. At age 40 there is no reason to let yourself fall apart. People are not only looking better into their later years these days - they can be healthier, too.
Well I'm 25 and gone off sex. Don't know you just in the last year. Not interested
Mad, he really should see his GP, you could go with hom for support or he could go on his own. It may be a hormonal problem - blood tests will help diagnose and there is medication which can help or he may be affected by stress or by other meds he is on.
I'm a 35 year old female. My partner is 47. We haven't had sex in two years because he has lost his sex drive. Apart from missing making love to him, I very much want a child and am worried about my age. I don't think it's the pressure of me wanting to have a child is what's putting him off. He lost his sex drive way before I ever mentioned it. Plus he insists that he adores me and does want kids. Can anyone out there help? I'm desperate!
Men only lose interest in sex when they're about 6 years dead !!
Just4me, there is absolutely NO medical justification whatsoever for routine circumcision. No medical authority anywhere in any developed country in the world supports it and most completely oppose it on medical grounds alone. Removing a perfectly healthy functioning part of the male antomy is medically unsupported, risky, harmful and unethical - PERIOD.
The soltion for the removla of bacteria is WASHING. Would you advocate the removal of healthy teeth to prevent plaque build-up? Of course you wouldn't - you'd brush them.
Hi, I and my wife in our 80's had good sex life. Unfortunatel she died some years ago. So that put an end to a happy life style.
On another topic is it better that a man be circumcised for hygienic reasons. If you do not shower daily then bacteria builds up under foreskin, Right or wrong. JustMe4
surely thou jest? Most men only lose it in the box and some not even then!!
r u on any medication? my hubby is on meds and he found it hard to have sex. i had to make him go to see our gp as it took nearly a year before we had sex. my gp gave him the same meds as you got and it worked.
I am 56year old male. Up to a year ago I always had a good sex drive, however for the last year I just dont seem to have any interest at all. My doctor gave me ciallis, and this will give me an erection, but my problem really is the total lack of interes in sex. Could I have a low testosterone level. Any suggestions welcome.
Now, I am having some problems with ED and am working with my GP to see if the problem is tractable to modern medicine [not just a V-pill!]. He says that the pituitary gland is very important in this problem and that he wants an MRI to see what is going on there. In his view, 75-85 years of age is no bar to healthy sexual function. Look at Abram and Sariah in Genesis!
For many women, once they either go past the time for having children they loose interest in sex.
Your views and those of your friends are 1 thing and my views and those of my friends are another.
Neither group is right or wrong but it goes to show that there are at least 2 groups of women out there and none of us are to say which is right or wrong. Both approaches are personal choice, thats all
As for men learning to curb it - I can't say I'd like if my husband did that as for me, it still is a big deal.
Its not the menopause that causes this, its just not seen as a big deal.
I can say with certainty that all the women I know from 40 to late 50\'s are no longer having an active sex life. Maybe its to do with raising children, stress whatever but thats the way it is.
As for men, they never loose their libido but they do learn to curb it.
They don\'t have a great deal of choice, when you think about it!!!
But if a women as young as 41 or 42 is losing interest in sex that is significant of another deeper problem, either medical or more likely in the relationship.
An honest, open frank discussion might be a good idea or relationship counselling may help.
Bear in mind too that some women, especially smokers go off he pill at around 40 and (assuming they don't want children at that point) may have difficulty finding a contraceptive to suit until they reach menopause and that can present a huge barrier to sex.
To all the anonononmusses out there--- Please use some name, even if it is not your own.
Men never lose interest in sex, ever. Men may encounter difficulties due to illnesses, certain types of medication, for blood pressure, for example, extreme exhaustion, but lose interest.....they sure don't.
Men may lose interest in a wife/partner, but that is a different matter.
Maybe you are not good in bed and thats why your partners don't initiate sex with you. They could be bored by what you do. Or they could be getting it elsewhere.
Either way, if you want a good sex life with your partner you really should sit down and communicate with HER!
Your not doing the situation much good by talking to us....
On the other hand I'm in my early fifties and I'd have it every night if it was on offer. I'm in a long standing relationship and I find I'm the one who has to do all the play for pleasure. My problem is I'm to bloody faithful to my partner.
