There is no bad side of the fence to this story as no matter what age you are, it’s good news! A new study has found that women who are 36 and older feel the most attractive and have the most enjoyable sex!

This is contrary to common views in society that your attractiveness and sex life peaks in your twenties. The research, carried out by Natural Cycles, the world’s first, and only app to be certified as a contraception, interviewed more than 2,618 women to measure female sexuality on a range of categories including Satisfaction (frequency of intercourse, satisfaction of partner), Attraction (self-perceived and in the eyes of the partner) and Orgasm (frequency and enjoyment).

The survey unveiled interesting patterns of sexual behaviour among three distinct age groups: younger (below 23), middle (23-36) and older (36 and over) – and the results showed that orgasm, attractiveness and most enjoyable sex gets better with age and peaks at the age of 36-years and above.

Like wine, our sexual attractiveness, soars we get older. It’s the same story in the bedroom, with the majority of women in the older age group (58 per cent) saying they had the most enjoyable orgasm and the greatest number of orgasms, scoring 10 per cent higher than the younger age group, and 5 per cent higher than the middle age group.

However, there’s always a fly in the ointment. When it comes to the ideal length of time sex should last, the reality doesn’t always match expectation. In fact, 31 per cent of women surveyed felt sex should last longer than what they currently have whilst 12 per cent felt it went on too long.

When questioned about the frequency of sex women have, just under a third had sex twice per week, over one fifth had sex three times per week, and under one-fifth had sex once per week.

A spokesperson at Natural Cycles, said:

“The results of the survey send out a really positive message about something us women have known for some time; as you get older and get to know your body better, you can have a more enjoyable sex life and feel confident about yourself, particularly if you’re in a monogamous relationship. It’s encouraging that there doesn’t appear to be a stigma attached to being older and enjoying the best sex of your life.”
