Sex really does get better with age because older women get satisfaction from physical closeness, research has found.



New findings reveal that almost two thirds [61 per cent] of women as old as 80 were satisfied with their sex lives, even though just one in five reported a high sex drive.

A similar proportion [67 per cent] of older women who were sexually active said they achieved an orgasm 'most of the time' or 'always' during sex, suggesting that it really does get better with experience.

And despite having a lower sex drive, half of women in their 80s still claimed to achieve orgasms 'most of the time' during sex. US scientists think this is because the women had sex as a means of affirmation or keeping their relationships healthy.

They said that as we get older merely feeling 'emotional and physical closeness' to a partner can be enough to provide sexual satisfaction.

Researchers from the University of San Diego studied sexual activity and satisfaction levels among 800 women with an average age of 67. Surprisingly, the highest levels of sexual satisfaction were reported among the youngest and oldest women in the study.
