In sex, women reach peak as they approach 40

A new study found women are more likely to have sexual fantasies and affairs in their 30s and early 40s than in their younger years, despite the fact their bodies may be in decline.
As per the researchers, this is because as women approach the milestone they may sense that their “window of opportunity” to have kids is closing.

And, this instinctual reaction is an increased appetite for sex, said the researchers who have based their findings on a survey of 900 women.

The survey divided respondents into three groups — those at their most fertile (aged 19 to 26), those whose fertility was declining (aged 27 to 45) and those who were approaching or had reached the menopause.

Those in the middle group were significantly more sexually driven, engaging in sex and having sexual fantasies more often than their older and younger counterparts and being more likely to have flings.

Lead researcher Prof David Buss of Texas University said: “Results indicate women with declining fertility have greater sexual motivations and increased sexual behaviours than do women with relatively high fertility.
