We all know women hit their sexual peak in their 30s, but few of us have an understanding of why this happens.
Some say it’s because they are more comfortable letting the freak come out, asking for what they need to get off, and so forth. Not exactly, says a new study that claims to have determined a woman’s sexual prime is between 27 and 45.
Scientists believe this is an involuntary reaction to declining fertility.
In the study 827 women filled out an online survey regarding their sexual desires and activities. These women were then grouped into three categories: 18-26 (high fertility), 27-45 (reduced fertility), and 45 plus (menopausal and post-menopausal).
Researchers found that the women 27-45, “think more about sex, have more frequent and intense sexual fantasies, are more willing to engage in sexual intercourse, and report actually engaging in sexual intercourse more frequently than women of other age groups.”
It also helps, the report says, that women in that age range sleep with men sooner than in other age groups.
