A study found that couples who enjoy a certain degree of intimacy with a happy love life age more positively and gradually. Such couples were found to be happy overall.
The study analyzed 1,235 women between the ages of 60 and 89 to reveal that decline of sexual activity among the older age groups did not mar their happiness and satisfaction levels. Infact, such couples were more positive about growing old.
The study showed that sexual satisfaction supports the psychological aspects of ageing and enhances quality of life .
