Feeling younger than your age leads to better sex for seniors

Sept. 19, 2017 - It is probably not a surprise, but researchers have confirmed that older adults who feel younger than their actual age are more satisfied with their sex life and in having one.

Or to state the reverse, the closer you feel to your actual age, the less likely you are to be satisfied with your sex life, says the  University of Waterloo study.

The study looked at the attitudes of sex and aging of a group of 1170 adults from their mid-40s to their mid-70s over a 10-year period.

The group, which included people of diverse sexual orientation, reported that the closer people felt to their chronological age, the lower the quality of their sex life.

"What was clear from the data is that feeling younger had a huge impact on how people felt about the quality of their sex life and how interested they were in having sex," said Steven Mock, an associate professor in Recreation and Leisure Studies at Waterloo.

"For people in mid to later life, feeling young at heart actually appears to make a difference in the bedroom."

The research drew upon data collected in the Midlife in the United States (MIDUS) study in the between 1995 and 2005. The MIDUS study is a national longitudinal study of health and wellbeing in the United States and measures the physical and mental health of participants over a period of decades.

"It's important to consider all of the different psychosocial and biological factors that might influence a person's sexuality," "said Amy Estill, who led the research while completing her Master's degree at Waterloo.

"While feeling younger didn't have an impact on how much sex people were having, it was quite clear that feeling older does impact the quality of the sex you're having,"

The study was published earlier this year in the Journal of Sex Research.
