'Nothing surprising' about women enjoying a bit of nookie in their 40s
12 Jul 2010
There is "nothing surprising" about women in their 40s enjoying a bit of nookie because it is a time of true sexual liberation.
Such are the comments of Sue Ostler, relationship author and flirt expert, who said that women are enjoying sex in their 40s because they abandon paranoia about their bodies and focus on "pure enjoyment".
This may not come as a surprise to those who are currently enjoying the benefits of an extra-marital lover, as a recent study has shown that women approaching their 40s are friskier, indulge in sexual fantasies and are more likely to have secret affairs.
Researchers from the University of Texas indicated women with declining fertility think more about sex, have more frequent and intense sexual fantasies and have sex more frequently than women of other age groups.
Ms Ostler said: "As we get older, we start to feel more comfortable in our skin and this is never more apparent than with sex when it becomes one big pleasure fest as the desperation to look porn-style perfect just goes out the window."
Also commenting on the trend of the 'cougar' woman having a toy boy as a lover, Ms Ostler said that women are now "taking pride" in their younger lovers.
