A study of 1,752 weary adults has shown that after the age of 45, it's downhill all the way when it comes to getting your end away. The rot actually sets in at 40, according to Kwai Garlic, which commissioned the survey. Three-quarters of those quizzed said that's the age at which sex started to become less of an earth-moving …
"down" to 22 minutes per week?
I must have missed something (or rather, am missing).
Mathematically interesting, but the IT angle is....?
Well over 50 myself so found it difficult to even read the article.
Paris - because I have never used her before and never will again.
The IT angle is -- of course -- that stronger glasses/spectacles are needed to see the bootnotes heading.
You're not coming near me with your breath smelling like that!
Another bloody survey labelled Official?
I'd say something but I probably haven't got the energy to drag my sagging body to the keyboard...
Is it so wrong..
....to request a Playmobil depiction of this?
Is it worth it?
It'd be either a couple of saggy Playmates (terminology?) in a bed just reading a book, or a darkened room. What's the point?
I'll get my dressing-gown...
I think you'll find that may be just for those who choose not to experiment. It's no surprise that most BDSM groups are full of middle ages folks, often who've divorced from boring partners.
Unhappy because more of us young people should be adventurous too.
the ages of 29, 32 and 36
Why the dips in form at ages 30-31 and 33-35?
We need to know.
Those buggers must've been reading my diaries!
The next questions
Is there a tie with the medications and obesity studies? Do the meds make us less randy and does pumping all that extra mass 'round the middle mean we tire quicker? Really, I need to know what to expect in the next all too few years.
there i fixed it :)
'round the middle mean we tyre quicker?
ok ok im going
@ does pumping all that extra mass 'round the middle mean we tire quicker?
yes, we spare tyre quicker
I'll get me coat
I'm 44, and that article was written by someone with a spycam in my house (a low light one, because the lights are off)
Once a week?
I'll be lucky
Re: Once a week?
Obviously you're not a fan of the Carry On films otherwise you'd know that "Once a week is enough for any man."
Dr. Tinkle (Kenneth Williams): Matron, you may not realize it but I was once a weak man!
Matron (Hattie Jacques) : Doctor, once a week is enough for any man!
Look on the Bright Side
When Sex is Bad is Love Missing and Passion AWOL?!.
Pictures or it didn't happen
Oh, so that's why there are no piccies...
Mid Life Crisis??
That's why you see so many over 45's driving high powered sports cars with women half their age , an extension of their whatever.
Was only getting started at 45 having sired my second daughter around that age.
Mines is the one with the Canadian Pharmacy blue pills in the pocket.
...is the way forward. It'll keep you fit and healthy and full o' beans. Made a *huge* difference to my sex life.
Still Randy at 46
It's absolutely no problem for me. I'm still quite Randy at 46 and quite able to perform. My lovely accountant girlfriend age 30 is giving me the workout of my life and helping me burn a ton of calories and shed the middle. Nutt'n but love. Get in shape and get back to the shaggin, I say.
Re: Still Randy at 46
"I am very virile and have a hot young girlfriend but I don't feel the need to boast about it to strangers on the internet."
When you're 46 you might have changed your mind.
Best way to lose weight is good cardio. Sex fits the bill.
@Sarah Bee - Still Randy at 46
Hey Sarah, you seem sarcastic and regard that guy as boasting, but this IS a discussion on whether you can still be randy in middle age. Therefore his post is relevant and valid.
It's no different from (say) a discussion on a Dynocorp Eyeblaster video card where someone says it doesn't work with Linux versions after 2.4. Then someone else says his Eyeblaster video card works fine with v2.6.23 - and you chip in to accuse him of boasting!
To add to the statistics, I am well over 45 and don't have the problem either, although (to my knowledge) I have never tried it with an accountant. In fact if anything it has got better as I have grown calmer about it as I have got older.
It's always all downhill when you're going down a hill....
So they measured how people contextualise sexual encounters and gave us some random statistics describing how people felt about their bodies at the exact time they were ticking the box.
So much of this can be culturally biased, Why does anyone pay for this sudo scientific nonsense?
you got me
I tried typing 'sudo scientific nonsense' on a Linux command line and my computer froze up! What was that about?
I tried it to, but got "sudo: scientific: command not found" instead of my computer freezing.
similar results for `sudo intelligence` and `sudo teach me to spell`.
Curiously , `sudo make me a sandwich` had a slightly different result.
When you're going downhill, you pick up speed.
So why do I feel like I'm slowing down?
Unbelievable piece of fiction, as clearly the only people who commented in the poll were the sex starved portion of the 45+ population. Sex is fabulous, with the right partner of course... ;)
I'm 55 and have sex nearly every night.
I nearly had it last night, and nearly had it the night before and so ad infinitum.
45 is "middle aged"?
45 is very middling!
0 - 30 young
30 - 60 middle
60 - * old
"Middle aged" would be life expectancy divided by two. So 45 would only be middle-aged if your life expectancy were 90 years old.
45 is therefore POST middle-aged, unfortunately.
Spot on, as usual :-)
(I'm 58 and I admit nothing)
Re: Still Randy at 46
Accountant you say? Phwoar!
"while 64 per cent only make love with the lights off"
On our honeymoon, the wife wanted to make love with the lights on, so I left the car door open.
Hey, read it all...
It's a study on...married couples...
The counter study should be made in a place like Pattaya, where at 45 you are a young springy buck getting ready for the second threesome of the day...
Up, because the article is already full of downess
It's more fun with a younger woman.
Is this a problem? Surely if you've any energy left at the end then you stopped too soon.
For what it's worth...
THIS is not the way it is supposed to be. I am 62. But look to be in my 40's -early 50's. I am not a vegetarian, but eat more than my share of vegetables. I have been ( 4 yrs ago ) a huge steak / chops & ribs eater. I wondered WHAT IS HAPPENING to my libido?? FIX IT!!!! ... NOW it's salads. Poultry and Fish, ( baked ). Oatmeal. Fruit, and such. My blood-pressure is MUCH better. Proper Sleep aids memory. Taking Vitamin C crushed into powder later in the day, along with the Oatmeal for breakfast helps keeps arteries clear of plaque. This ALONE aids male potency. And confidence. The great thing is I am now sought after. Again Flabby, NO. Exhausted, NO. Running NO. NOT GOOD. Jogging better but not needed. Brisk walking? AHA. YES. 5x weekly. THIS is my LIFE! My BODY for LIFE! Take care of it. Your body is as one of my research associates says the FINEST machine on earth! Take care of it.
All fine pieces of machinery need some grease now and again. :)
I'm 44 and have sex most nights of the week. Sometimes for several hours at a time. The survey respondents must be making the mistake of having it with someone else.
In other words
the best orgasms are hand made.
...to the innumerable surveys proclaiming sex got better with age?! I think I feel a bit heartbroken at reading this story. No more confirming difficulty of old age please. Jon
Once a week?
At age 45+?
Once every 4-6 months I'd have believed.
Only four years
and I'll be having my 22 minutes of sex a week. Can't wait!
Oh wait, is this not a statutory right?
Physical capabilities decline with age shocker.
63% of retirees indicated that their monthly love-making attempt was accompanied by a somewhat off-putting creaking sound.
Re : Wow
"63% of retirees indicated that their monthly love-making attempt was accompanied by a somewhat off-putting creaking sound."
They should get a new bed or whatever !
