    Hi Greg,

     

    It is common knowledge that women mature sexually in their 30's and 40's where men usually hit their sexual peak at a much younger age. This question is probably best answered in the sexual health section located here.

     

    I had a hysterectomy at the age of 30 and for me, the freedom of knowing I didn't have to worry about pregnancy and could be free and open with my partner was a great motivator for me. Plus, sex is a great way to relieve a headache :) I wouldn't be concerned. Just enjoy the benefits!

     

    Hope you find something useful here.

    I had a complete hysterectomy in my late 20's and as I got older, I seemed to really enjoy sex much more than in 30's.  I am 40 and am on fire, too  !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Let her enjoy herself!  Kiss

    I just turned 44 and in the last year my sex drive has gone from a sports car to straight IndY Racing. I have noticed the walls inside my vagina feel so swelled that I feel as tight as if I was a teen. I feel like I have nerve tenticles runnning up and down the entire area that my boyfriend touches. I have never felt such a incredible feeling in all my years and I have 3 kids. I still am in great shape, I am fairly active, my periods are faithful every 28 and only last for 3 days. I feel young but idk menopause laws. I do know I want this enlightening and pleasurable experience to last forever. I had such a difficult time in my early years achieving a single orgasm, now I can drench a bed and my orgasms continue from one explosive spark to another. I feel like the selfish one though, I feel like I abuse my boyfriend since sex has been so intense. I do think emotions play a great part in our hormones and sex drive. For me I have been through some very tramatizing and depressing events. Since these experiences my sex drive and sensitivity changed to ultra sensitive. So the trade off is:

    wacky emotions=great sex

    Level head=lame sex
