85% of women dread the idea of menopause. We have been told that it’s almost a form of acknowledging that your sexually filled active days are over. You have mood swings, you experience vaginal dryness, you get fatter and it seems like ooh, maybe it’s just time to relax sexually and focus on my family. But that’s not true.
Menopause may be filled with the unknown and known, such as some of the symptoms mentioned above, but, it doesn’t mean your life is over. Have you ever looked at women who go into sexual relationships after 50 and wonder what they stand to gain from it? Well, maybe it’s time to debunk the rumour about menopause and understand what makes sex better after menopause.
• You start to live again
Let’s face it, life starts after the big 50 for most women. Your children are out of the house and living as adults, menstruation is completely over for life, you are completely free, your clothes are beginning to fit more. You have that unlimited freedom to make your house a sex shrine or become a sex goddess, whatever you choose. It’s your time to rock your body, picture yourself while you were younger but with unquestionable freedom.
• No pregnancy
I know there have been some rare cases of children born after menopause, but it’s a rarity. Sex during menopause can be completely fun because you do not have to worry about getting pregnant. You can have all of the sperm inside you and still sleep soundly without thinking of getting a contraceptive. And if you have a long term partner, no condoms or coitus interruptus.
• You know your body
At 25, you may be finding out what you want, at 35, you are learning to own your body, but after menopause you know what you want and you are in total control of your body. You don’t have to worry about pleasing your partner without being reciprocated. You have no shame in pointing out your sexual needs and having them responded to.
Maybe the persons who kept on hinting on vaginal dryness as a problem had no ideas about lubes. Vaginal dryness may not be a complete disadvantage as we were led to believe. This can lead to experiments, and trying out new things are always exciting in a relationship. More excitement, more pleasure and greater sex.
When you are younger, you worry about bills, your career, your children, your finance and almost everything. But, women after menopause have less to worry about. In most cases, their careers are stable, financially, they are better than before, the school bills of children have been reduced to a minimal, thus eliminating stress.
Stress can be a major barrier why people do not have enjoyable sexual life and with life major worries gone. Dang! the glow is better.
• Better partner
You are older, wiser and if you are single you have a wide range of options of men to choose from. You know what to look out for and in most cases, partners within your age range are more matured, expressive and ready to bring in new tools to the bedroom to help you achieve unlimited pleasure.
Getting old doesn’t sound quite boring
