Q. In a health and sex magazine it was mentioned that sex drives in males is at its peak between 20 to 30 years of age while in women it is around 35 to 40 years. Is it the emotional or the sexual feeling, which women need during their 30s? Is the sexual feeling same as it used to be during 20s?

A.  It is true only to limited extent in cases of males that their libido is high during adolescence and in their twenties. Each sexual being is unique and the period during which the sexual drive increases, peaks and decreases, varies. No one but you knows better about your body and its needs. The sex drive statistics regarding the “peak in women” come from Alfred Kinsey, Ph.D., the famous sexuality researcher who learned that women had more sexual outlets and more orgasms in their thirties than at any other time in their lives. This may be due to many reasons, including the fact that women in their thirties have become more comfortable with their bodies and with their body responses. Their orgasms become more reliable. They often have more self-confidence, and are more comfortable with their sexuality. They have a good sense of their needs, and are willing to communicate their needs more clearly and completely. Since they are familiar with their body responses, they can describe what they want to their partner more easily.
