Exercise Makes Us Better Lovers At Any Age

March 07, 20242 min read

"At age 20, we worry about what others think of us. At age 40, we don't care what they think of us. At age 60, we discover they haven't been thinking of us at all." -- Ann Landers

Fit people make better lovers. It’s true at any age, even later in life.

And it shouldn’t surprise anyone. If you’re stronger, more agile, and have better stamina, then chances are you’re going to have a more satisfying sex life – and help your partner have one, too.

Scientific research backs this up. In one study, researchers followed 3,200 women over 15 years. Here’s some of what they found.

"About a quarter of women rate sex as very important, regardless of their age", said Dr. Holly Thomas of the University of Pittsburgh. The study showed substantial numbers of women still highly value sex, even as they get older, and it's not abnormal.

“If women are able to speak up with their partner and make sure that they're having sex that's fulfilling and pleasurable to them, then they're more likely to rate it as highly important as they get older.”

Among men and women alike, higher levels of aerobic exercise can improve sexual performance, stamina, and desire, another study reported. As an example, vigorous running reduced the risk of sexual disfunction by 25 percent for men and 30 percent for women.

The Mayo Clinic adds that “many older couples report greater satisfaction” because of fewer distractions, more time and privacy, and no worries about pregnancy.

“Contrary to common myths, sex isn't just for the young. Many seniors continue to enjoy their sexuality into their 80s and beyond,” the clinic says.
