RELATED: The New Cure For Low Libido
Many also noted that mental health impacted their sex drives.
"At 47, i thought my libido dropped a year ago because of age, even had doctors support this theory. Then I realised I was overly stressed. made some adjustments and now its the same as its always was." – @Talim
"It's even worse when you're on antidepressants. I went a good 7 months without wacking one off just because there was no desire to. I didn't mind it at all honestly because I was single and my mental health improved ten-fold." – @blurryrhombus
It's also important to note that with limited opportunities when you're age (whether you have a few little ones or you just don't go out as much as you used to), quality becomes more important than quantity.
"Look, as much as my fiancée likes to tell me I’m wrong and it’s in my head, once you crest ~30, things change for guys. You aren’t as crazy as you were. Doesn’t mean you don’t care. In fact, I’d say you care far more when you actually do get down. That is, you have to care more. You aren’t just some loser hornball who desperately wants to get down. You actually care and are there and want it for real. You aren’t just some hormone-driven maniac without true wants and good intentions. I think that’s a sincerely and earnestly good thing. For the record: Sex gets soooooooo much better with age. Like, holy god. Like, you get to do the things that really get you and with the person you love. You’ve no idea how much better it all is with the person you love, entirely there, and so badly wanting them . . . . . It’s entirely a different thing. And, it’s the best thing ever." – @JAproofrok
