If you’re over the age of 50, you may have noticed changes in some aspects of your health – including your sex life. Maybe you or your partner are just too tired or too busy, or maybe other health problems get in the way – whatever the case may be, these troubles could prevent you from having the best sex of your life.
Being older means having more experience, being familiar with your own (and your partner’s) body, and knowing what pleasure feels like and how to give it and receive it. And although those age-related changes may have put a damper on your sex life, you don’t have to accept it.
In fact, there are many ways to spark up your libido – like the following five tips.
5 tips to boost libido
Take you time and skip the quickies: When you were younger, having a quickie was so easy, but now that you’re older it can be a bit of a challenge. Instead of rushing, take your time and build up the experience by triggering all the five senses, not just touch, in order to become aroused.
Stay flexible and active: Taking classes to keep yourself in shape can get your creative juices flowing once again in the bedroom. For extra fun, invite your partner to join your fitness sessions.
Shower together: Here’s an idea. Get out of the bed and into the shower. Not only will you save water, but the idea of showering together can be very erotic, enticing your senses and getting you in the right mood for sex.
Try orgasmic meditation: Orgasmic meditation helps you and your partner tune in with one another. The practice involves clitoral stimulation completed in a certain way.
Use more lubricant: Over time, especially after menopause, women’s natural lubrication decreases, making sex a painful experience. Don’t be afraid to use lubricants to get things moving along smoothly.
These are just some tips and tricks to help you spark up your sex life and turn each session into a pleasurable experience once again. There are countless ways to get in the mood – it just involves some trial and error.
