Do you know that saying: “Old is Gold”? Well in most cases, yes. But to be honest, getting older has its pros and cons. One of the biggest cons for almost all men is their sex life and many men in their 50s have problems improving it.
If you happen to be in this position, there is no reason to be ashamed. Almost all men in their 50’s have trouble with improving their sex life. It’s a natural part of life and your body takes its natural course as you grow older.
One of the major factors that dampen your sex life is erectile dysfunction. Nobody wants this to ever happen to themselves but if it does there are many more ways that you can improve your sex life despite being in your 50s.
Let’s take a look at 5 iron-clad ways that men in their 50s can improve their sex life. But first, it will be best if you see a doctor before you try these recommendations.
- Try New Things
You may have heard this before, but trying new things and exploring new avenues of your sex life can make a difference. Since your energy levels are depleted as you get older, you may want to consider having sex at certain times of the day when you and your partner are energetic. This can vary for different people. If you’re always sleepy towards the evening then why not try having sex sometime in the morning.
WebMD has some interesting suggestions as well that you may have heard of before too:
- Explore new sex positions.
- Create a romantic atmosphere to set the mood.
- Why not change the venue. Try having sex elsewhere in the house like in the shower.
- Give each other sensual massages
- Get Regular Exercise
Getting in a simple workout regularly can make a big difference to how you perform in the bedroom. The intensity during sex can be likened to doing a workout. So making sure that you are in shape can really improve your stamina in the bedroom.
Working out not only strengthens your muscles but also improves your self-esteem and confidence.
- Find a Comfortable Spot
Your body also takes a toll as you grow older. You may even have joint or muscle pains. This can also have an impact on your sex life. Certain sex positions may make it very uncomfortable for you.
You can try setting pillows to support you or you can try a different sex position that you are both comfortable with.
Being able to be comfortable will make a big improvement in your sex life.
- Communicate with Your Partner
Communication is very important in a relationship. Without communication, it would be impossible to know what pleases your partner and what doesn’t.
Find time to sit down together and talk about what you much you love about each other and what do you like or dislike. Find out what you are both comfortable with and come to a compromise.
- Pick a Time of the Day To Have Sex
Setting aside a time of the day to have sex can also make a difference. For us as men, the anxieties and pressures of life may weigh us down and you may find yourself feeling stressed and depressed at certain times of the day.
Why not choose a time of the day when you’re both in a good mood to have sex. Picking a time that best suits you and your partner is all you have to do to improve your sex life.
Will This Work?
Why not give it a try. You do not necessarily have to do all that is suggested. Start with one of the suggestions above, and then move to the next. Sex is supposed to connect you with your partner and the only way to be connected is if you both figure out what works best for the both of you.
