It is not a myth that seniors engage in sexual intimacy or wish to enjoy intimacy perhaps just as much as younger men and women. However, intimacy like many other physical and social interactions that occur as men and women get older. This blog will discuss simple suggestions for seniors to have enjoyable and more fulfilling sex life.
Start your intimacy by engaging your mouth or your communication skills before engaging in sex. You should be able to communicate your thoughts, fears, and desires with your partner. Be frank with your partner and encourage them too to be open with you. Holding back or hiding certain things will only dampen your spirits and diminish your performance.
Be open to new ideas and experiment
Just because you are growing old, doesn’t mean you can’t expand your horizons. Be open to new ideas and discuss them freely with your partner. Don’t hesitate and put your creative mind to use. If erectile dysfunction is an issue for you, try sex with the woman on top, as hardness is less important. If you are used to having sex in the evening, try the morning and visa versa.
Eat right and exercise
High blood pressure and cholesterol can cause the vascular problems that lead to trouble with your erections. It is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle by exercising and keeping your weight and cholesterol in check.
Avoid large quantities of alcohol and smoking
It’s no news that both alcohol and smoking can hinder a man’s ability to achieve an erection. If you are having sexual difficulties, consider abstaining from smoking and alcohol.
Sex does not always mean intercourse
You need to broaden your definition of sex. Holding each other, gentle touching, cuddling, kissing, and sensual massage are also ways which will fulfill you. Try oral sex or masturbation as substitutes to intercourse.
Know when to visit a doctor
Your doctor can help you manage chronic conditions and medications that affect your sex life. If you have trouble maintaining an erection, ask your doctor about treatments. If you have vaginal dryness, see your doctor as help is available.
You need to maintain a positive approach when it comes to these sensitive issues. Having said that, you need to be realistic too to accept the changes that your body is going through. But nevertheless, accept these natural changes with confidence.
Bottom Line: Sex is enjoyable at any age. Seniors enjoy sexual intimacy just as younger men and women do. You need to know that you can be successful as a senior both in and out of the bedroom.
