Sex is the special sauce of relationships no matter how old! It is the most fundamental part of being human. As we age, many of us tend to kick our sexiness to the curb because of life’s interferences and in turn, our confidence levels drop. Getting older for some of us means we put sex on a backburner, remove it entirely from our bedroom repertoire. 

Have mercy!

As we have stated before in 50BOLD, there is no age limit on sexuality and sexual activity just because you are over 50!  If you stay interested, stay healthy, and have a mate that is willing and able, your confidence levels about sex stays put, which means good sex all the way until the end. If there are physical changes that occur in your relationship and intercourse cannot take place, focus more on intimacy and closeness instead of sex alone.

See if you’ve lost the sexual mojo that used to bring the boys around like flies!
