Sex is a very important part of life for most people, and very natural as well. It seems that it is more of a big deal for younger individuals than those who are older. Maybe it is because they have learned what a relationship is all about by then, and sex is just a small portion of it. Still, it is important and something that you will want to still be a part of.
One of the biggest problems though is that people aren’t comfortable with their bodies as they get older. It is true that things may not be where they used to be, and wrinkles may be in place. Yet if you are able to love your body for what it is, sex in your 60’s can still be very enjoyable.
Some individuals around this age have been with the same partner for decades. They are very comfortable with them. They are still able to have a satisfying sexual relationship because they know what their partner finds enjoyable. It is never too late to start experimenting either!
Others around this age group are with a new partner for a variety of reasons. They may have been divorced and focused on their career or children. Now they are ready to focus on their own personal happiness. A new love interest in your 60’s can be very exciting for someone. It can be something for you to appreciate if companionship and love is something you are looking for in your life.
Part of being able to enjoy an active sex life in your 60’s has to do with your health as well. It is important to have regular check ups so that your doctor can assess any problems you may be experiencing. You also need to stay active because that going to increase your level of energy and endurance for sexual activities.
You may find you have more time to exercise on a regular basis at this time in your life. You likely don’t have children to care for at home and you may be very close to retirement. There are plenty of walking clubs and exercise groups for older individuals where you can make some great friends too. This may help you to look forward to exercising when you saw it as a burden before.
Not everyone finds that sex is that important when they are in their 60’s though. It is important for you and your partner to be able to communicate what your sexual needs and interests are. If you are both content with it only happening once in a while that is fine. If you both would like it to take place regularly then that is fine too.
Should you discover that your sexual needs and desires are very different from each other though it could pose problems for your relationship. If you are open and honest about your needs and feelings though you can find it to be something you can work out as a couple. Both individuals should be looking forward to the sexual activity rather than one feeling pressured into participating.
Sex can be a wonderful experience at any age. If you enjoy it and you are healthy enough for it, there is no reason why you can’t continue it into your 60’s and beyond. If you find you don’t enjoy it as much as you once did, there may be some things you can do about that. Talk to your doctor and you can come up with some solutions together.
