Sex is something that only living people do. And when you stop having sex (even with yourself) you have sent nature one of its clearest signals that you are on the road to dead.
But sex does inevitably change with age. Parts may not work the same, and you and your partner might be finding that the goals of sex that once served your relationship may have changed, too.
This is not the time for despair. Midlife presents a great opportunity for sexual exploration and awakening, especially for women who now find themselves freed up from the confines of reproduction and hormonal cycling.
Here are the posts I’ve written in a frank way about the changes that have occurred in my own sex life after a long marriage, and how my husband and I keep our erotic selves alive after 27 years of marriage.
Your mileage may vary, but I hope you and your partner, if you have one, have not decided yet to park the car.
