Getting older bring along a variety of health challenges as well such as heart disease, blood pressure, diabetes,depression, hormonal problems, and anxiety etc. And some medications can inhibit your sexual response, including your desire for sex or your ability to become aroused or have an orgasm.
For men, as they grow older,their levels of testosterone (the male sexual hormone) naturally decline, that change their sexual health, sexual function and emotions. And for women, as they approach menopause, their estrogen levels decrease that causes several changes e.g. their vagina shortens and narrows and the walls become thinner and stiffer, they can also have less lubrication. But these changes do not mean she/he can't enjoy having sex. Sexual pleasure and the interest in sex does not decrease as they grow older for many people. Older men and women still can enjoy intimacy and pleasure through sex, as well as reaffirm their shared feelings of warmth, love, and affection.
For women Waning of hormones while aging cause thinning of vaginal tissues and can make sex painful. Use water or female enhancement lubricant before and during sex to reduce the discomfort of vaginal dryness. Do not use cream, petroleum jelly or any other oil-based moisturizer. You can buy personal lubricants which are available online or drug store. But Talk to your doctor about lubricants or hormone treatments.
And men can use different male enhancement natural supplements/product that can help you to increase your sex drive. However it is better to consult your physician before using this type of product.
Another important key to have enjoyable sex is to communicate your thoughts, desires and fears with your partner. And encourage your partner to communicate openly with you, too. An open and honest conversation will help both of you feel closer, and can make sex more pleasurable.
