As we age, our bodies change, and our relationships mellow out. With libidos quieting down, it may not make sense to wonder whether the good days could be still ahead of you. But many men still question: Does sex get better with age? Here’s why the answer is a resounding yes.
ED is not age‑related
Just because you’re getting older doesn’t mean you’ll experience ED. Erectile dysfunction can happen at any age, and while it is more common in men of advancing years, age is not a cause of ED. Libido, testosterone levels, and circulation to the penis can continue well into your golden years.
What is important, however, is to consider why it is more common in older men, and address those factors. For example, stress, high blood pressure, high cholesterol levels, poor eating habits, lack of exercise, obesity, and diabetes are all risk factors of ED and may be more common the older we get. In addition, older men may be more likely to take medication for health issues that can interfere with sex drive and sexual function. Based on this, addressing health issues, maintaining a healthy body weight, and practicing a healthy lifestyle can keep you young at heart and can keep erections strong as you age.
You appreciate intimacy
Another reason the answer to “Does sex get better with age?” is a resounding yes, is that experience builds appreciation and patience. Mature men know that there is more to sex than intercourse and penetration, and that the key to being amazing in bed is establishing intimacy and being in tune with your partner’s desires.
Older men know the value of a date night or getting away on a trip to reconnect. They know how to slow down and take advantage of time together. They have been around the block, so they have confidence in their abilities. They know how to talk dirty to build arousal, and they are not afraid to experiment with sex accessories or toys.
There are tools available
Finally, sex does get better with age because men today do not have to go at it alone. If the rigidity and duration of your erections are not as long as they used to be, there are tools to create and achieve strong ones for years ahead of satisfying sex.
A vacuum therapy device or penis pump is a natural and effective way to continue to have better sex no matter your age. With vacuum therapy, an acrylic penile tube is placed over the penis, and a battery‑ or manually‑operated pump is used to create a vacuum suction to gently draw blood into the penis, creating an erection. Once the erection is achieved, a support ring is placed around the base of the penis holding the erection in place.
Penis pumps can address the two parts of every erection—getting one and keeping one. The vacuum suction means men do not have to be “in the mood” to get an erection. The laws of physics take over. In addition, penis rings comes in a variety of sizes and styles and provide various degrees of tension around the penis, thus providing the exact level of support to keep blood in the penis maintaining an erection.
With penis pumps and penis rings, there are no medications or medical side effects, and there are no wait times wondering if—and when—a treatment will kick in. The treatment is 100% natural and no doctor’s appointments or prescriptions are needed.
Does sex get better with age? Heck, yes. By addressing your overall health, embracing your years of experience, and accessing the tools and support that are available to you, sex can be better than ever for years to come.
