    Default increased sex drive in 40s


    I have been separated for 2 years now and in that time my sex drive has gone through the roof! When I was married I had lost all interest in sex but now I think about it all the time. I put it down to feeling good about myself again after 25 years of not, coupled with an increase in testosterone as I get older I am delighted but sometimes a bit scared of where it might take me and that it might doisappear again!!

    I sure hope I get into the 'dirty 30's' hehe, and every year after
    There are those who believe that dictionaries should not merely reflect the times but also protect English from the mindless assaults of the trendy.

    Part of it maybe that as we mature we are less concerned with other people's standards and start to enjoy who we are more.

    That's a strange thing, I thought the same, "Mature".

    I think when we turn 30, we still feel 26 and so remain in that sphere but for some reason when we turn 40, we say "Mature woman" and feel sexy at the thought of all the lessons we have learnt and whom we have become.

    I also think being with a guy that makes you feel like ahhhh "sex" if I have to, instead of lust and desire, passion, sexual, sensual, horny turns us off but when we are set free of this, it's "I am woman hear me roar".

    I doubt it goes away, you just have the opportunity to enjoy your sexuality finally.

    I love me now and taking myself to what ever level I desire...

    If only my past knew how to seduce a woman on-going? damd... lol. Not, I wouldn't want to be anyone different, nor with anyone different than whom I am and whom I am now with.

    if truth were to be told.

    Lizzy...I found this site while trying to diagnose what is wrong with me!! I am 48 and have the sex drive of a 16 yr old boy! I think about sex morning, noon and night. Even more exciting is I have found a lost love from 20 yrs ago that is just like me and we get together as often as we can since he is 5.5 hrs away. I was in a slump for the longest and after enough, started tanning, got a new color of Chrome to match the platinum strands in my hair and have lost some weight. I feel as good as I did in my 20's only having more fun. Sex is way better and unlike many of my friends this age who are complaining about having to "put out" and drying up, I am the opposite. I pray this condition never goes away.

    It is so nice to see there are others out there like me! Now instead of feeling I have a medical problem, I feel lucky!

    Talking Increased Sex drive after 40

    We bought some sex toys a few weeks ago and it has been on. I can't get enough of my husband, what is so unusual about a month ago I didn't have the drive or desire. I don't know if it was the toys or just my hormones changing. Whatever it is I am having the time of my life, feels like when I was in my early 20's!!!

    If mid 30s to mid 40s are the female peak compared to what I'm like now, I'll end up putting my BF in a wheelchair or the hospital.
