You Can Have the Best Sex of Your Life During Menopause
Posted on September 28 2016
Every woman deserves to have the best sex of her life, even if she is going through menopause. Many women believe that sex is over at this point in their lives because of the changes occurring in their bodies. Fortunately, that is not the case. In fact, it is a myth that was created over time for many reasons. While arousal can be more challenging during menopause, it is not impossible. In fact, many women are discovering that sex can be better during menopause.
Think of it this way: Sex is like a fine wine that gets better with age. Rather than being turned off to sex because of bodily changes and age, consider the fact that research has shown that the sexual satisfaction of women actually increases with age, despite the fact that hormones are out of whack during menopause.
Use Your Experience to Your Advantage
So why does sex get better with age? Consider the following:
- You are more experienced and you know what you want and how you’re going to get there. You probably feel like you are more deserving of sexual pleasure and more willing to ask your partner for what you want.
- You are more likely to have sex to achieve closeness with your partner. Spending that time with your partner and just taking your time can make sex pleasurable. Even if you are not really in the mood to even get started, you can be in the mood after the fact. It is all about getting past the “low sex drive barrier” that seems to exist. The fact is that it is just a hurdle that can be overcome.
- There are different lubes on the market that can enhance intercourse when used. If vaginal dryness is a problem during menopause, you have a good reason to try out different lubes to find one that you like. Your partner will enjoy it as well. If you don’t want to tell your partner it is due to vaginal dryness, use it as an opportunity to try something new that both of you will like.
- Take control over your own orgasm by knowing that you deserve pleasure and accepting the fact that you are going to have to be more responsible for your orgasm than your partner. Discover what feels good rather than expect your partner to read your mind and figure it out. Once you know what feels good for you at this phase in your life, let your partner know.
Most importantly, don’t fake it. Faking orgasms means that your sex life will not improve because your partner will believe that everything is being done right. If your partner knows the facts and you grab that orgasm by the reigns, you can have the best sex of your life even when your body is trying to tell you that it’s impossible.
