 Older People Are Wiser In Bed Than The Young

Younger people may think old couples have a boring sex life because of various sexual problems is false, according to a new study. While young adults might concentrate on their time spent, older people are thinking otherwise and that is why they have a better life.

More mature lovers tend to focus on quality over quantity in the bedroom, with the extra 'thought and effort' they put into sex countering the possible drop off in libido seen after 60.

They also draw on their life experiences to make themselves more considerate sexual partners. It means that if a 40-year-old man and 50-year-old man had sex with the same number of partners, the 50-year-old would have the better sex life.

According to a report in the Daily Mail, older people have more experience, which helps them try new things and have a better sex life. The 'sexual wisdom' of an older person improves over time, which makes them focus on the act rather than the number of times or how long the sexual partners had sex. They put in an extra effort because of the lack of libido for a longer time unlike people in their 20s.

Partners also tend to be more considerate towards the feelings of the other and do not have expectations beyond their control. According to a research conducted by scientists at the University of Minnesota, the frequency of sex becomes less important as compared to the time and effort invested in sex had less frequently.

The US researchers looked at data on 6,000 people aged 20 to 93 based on surveys taken in 1995, 2003 and 2013. Lead researcher Miri Forbes, of the University of Minnesota, said: "These changing priorities were key predictors of sexual quality of life for older adults, and appeared to buffer its decline.

The findings showed that while "frequency of sex became less important with age, the amount of thought and effort invested in sex became more important".
