Dating a woman 4 years older
Men can take a pill to stay aroused and enjoy sex as they get older, but women's responses are far more complex.All these obstacles to fulfilling sex converge just at the time in our lives when a lot of us were hoping that we could have a little fun after years of raising kids and running busy households.We admire these women for getting out there (especially Bertinelli, who looks incredible).But frankly, they're all tough acts to follow for those of us without stylists and personal trainers.In order to enjoy sex, you have to feel that you're sexy.That's not easy if your self-esteem is tied to unrealistic images of eternal youth.We fantasized about that empty nest and the chance to have spontaneous sex on a weekend afternoon without threat of interruption.Instead, many women say that with diminished desire and the pain, sex just isn't worth the trouble. While it's true that in the University of Chicago study half of those surveyed reported problems, many were still having a pretty good time.
But now our role models are women like the experienced stars of "Sex and the City," who are set to film yet another sequel featuring numerous scenes of Kim Cattrall (52), Sarah Jessica Parker and Kristin Davis (both 44) and Cynthia Nixon (43) enjoying their time beneath the sheets.
It may take more time to feel aroused or reach orgasm so you and your partner might need to experiment with different and more focused forms of foreplay, as well as romantic activities to set the mood, like giving each other massages.
If you don't have a partner at the moment, it's still important to keep the vaginal area healthy.
It's daunting to think that we are supposed to be as interested in sex as we were in our 20s have bodies and wardrobes that mirror that age.
When we were growing up, we rarely saw a college student and her mom wearing the same clothes.
