Mature Moms Make Better Lovers! By Kerri Zane, Healthy Living Expert

Sex is good, sex is nourishing, and sex is vital. You are a healthy, vibrant woman, and in spite of the fact that your hormonal drive to reproduce might possibly be waning (you’ve got your kids already), your desire for intimacy has not, nor should it be. In fact, it’s just the opposite!

A study conducted by researchers from the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine and the Veterans Affairs San Diego Healthcare System found that the majority of women ages 40 to 80 years old were moderately, or very, satisfied with their sex lives. Their orgasms and the frequency at which these women were very satisfied with their sex lives increased with the respondent’s ages. Moreover, within the month of being questioned, nearly half the women interviewed reported that they engaged in sexual activity and experienced arousal, lubrication, and orgasm a majority of the time. All of the surveys and interviews conclude that as women mature, their sex lives keep improving. We may not continue to swing from chandeliers, but we become more comfortable with whom we are. We know what we like and we’re not afraid to ask for it. So contrary to popular belief, even if you are solidly headed down the second-half-of-life path, your “sexability” is far from over.

Furthermore, clinical psychologist Dr. James Houran conducted a study about single mothers’ sexual attitudes and behaviors. What the good doctor discovered is that you possess what he calls “parent-engendered” skills such as selflessness, flexibility (I believe he is referring to time-management skill, not acrobatics), and stress management. All of these talents give you an edge over single women without children when it comes to a healthy sexual attitude and appetite. In fact, in his study, Dr. Houran found that single moms tended to have strong libidos and an open mind when it comes to sex.

It is your time Madame Mom – step into your sexuality, step out of your mommy sweats, pull off the scrunchy and tussle those tresses. Send the children off on an extended play date or, if you’re a single mom, let dad take and extra custody day or barter babysitting with another single mom and have yourself a healthy roll in the hay.
