 Oz Women: Sex Gets Better With Age

A new survey has found that about 80 per cent of over 40s Aussie women felt more confident in bed now than in their 20s.

The survery also revealed that a third admitted to a cougar experience - having sex with someone at least five years younger thann themselves.


The survey of 1000 Aussie women by Prevention magazine found the average 40-something woman has had eight sexual partners, almost a quarter have had sex in a public place and one in 10 fantasize about co-workers.

Almost a third said they wished to be more forward about what they want in bed, with about 10 per cent rarely or never reaching orgasm.

Sixty per cent admitted there was still something they would like to experiment with in the bedroom.

Prevention editor Jacqui Mooney said the survey revealed a clear "satisfaction gap" between what women wanted and what they got, with 57 per cent of Aussie women over 40 wanting sex at least once a week, but only 36 per cent having it that often.

Respondents said they most commonly had sex to strengthen the bond they shared with their partner (68 per cent), boost their mood (46 per cent) or feel less stressed (29 per cent).

"Contrary to popular belief, we were encouraged to discover that, for most women, sex only gets better with age," News.com.au quotedooney as saying.

"Unsurprisingly, 69 per cent admitted tiredness sends your libido south. And, bucking the online trend, 38 per cent reported their partner bringing an iPad to bed was a guaranteed passion killer," the researcher added.

Almost half (45 per cent) had been cheated on, while 26 per cent have cheated themselves.

And the survey found woman over 40 were 40 times more likely to choose good sex over an icecream sundae.
