Are You Too Old for Intimacy?

The societal norm tells us that sexual desire goes down with age. No one wants to think about their aging parents having sex, let alone their grandparents. But have you thought about what your own sex life will be like as you age?

In the article titled, “Midlife Women Who Value Sex Keep On Having it,” based on research of midlife women's sex lives done by the University of Pittsburgh published earlier this month in the medical journal, JAMA Internal Medicine.

The new research shows that middle aged women say that sex is “moderately to extremely important” and that they are three times as likely to remain sexually active after menopause. Read the blog by Certified Sex Therapist Brier Jirka, about the challenges of sex as women age.

The Pelvic pain and Sexual Wellness Clinic has services that can help you find intimacy at any age.
