According to a recent study, women currently aged 55 and above enjoy sex much more than their peers of a decade ago. However, this same study shows that in age group 35-54 years decreased satisfaction with sex life, says The USA Today. Female retirement age often think about sex and make more efforts to diversify the sexual life compared with the fair sex who were at the same age in the 90's, said at the National Research Center at the University of Chicago, Natalia Gavrilova. The biggest change in attitude towards sex occurred to women who are 60 or 70 years. Scientists compared the results of surveys conducted in the 90's with the participation of 725 women aged 35 to 54 years and 507 women 55-74 years, with the results of studies involving 400 women at each age group, held in 2004 and 2005. Gavrilova notes that women of retirement age consider themselves younger than the pensioner believed in the 90's. Changes in the cultural life of society, forcing them to speak more openly about their sexual desires, as well as interested in their health, perceiving sex as an integral part of a healthy lifestyle. Despite the fact that changes over 10 years, can not be called serious, they have great importance, as indicated by lower satisfaction with sexual life of middle-aged women, and greater satisfaction sex pensioners.

'In today's society for women of my age there more opportunities to show their sexuality – said psychologist and sex therapist Aline Zoldbrod. – I am 59 years old, but I am quite different from what my mother was in the same age. I look younger, behave differently and still consider myself to be sexual. " However, Zoldbrod indicates that the majority of her clients aged 30-40 years have problems with sexual life: 'Children are consuming most of the lives of their parents, the latter simply did not have time for good sex. " Meanwhile, most grandmothers sexual encounter with a serious problem – the lack of partners. At the age of 70 years, 35% of men have no permanent partner compared with 70% of women. Men die sooner, and centenarians prefer to communicate with younger women.
