What is the age for sexual peak in women?

Think great sex ends in your twenties? Midlifers, don’t despair—research says you’re just reaching your prime when it comes to your sex life.

Recently, online platform Happify put forward a simple (but important!) question: When do people have the best sex of their lives?

Their results for sexual peak in women and men might surprise you.

According to people in their 50s and 60s, the best sex of their lives happened in their 40s, and specifically at the age of 46.

Unfortunately, the peak age for sex also has a significant downside

Happify reports that on average, people have to wait 13 years after losing their virginity before having the best sex of their lives.

But here’s the good news: Age aside, nearly half of all couples said the best sex of their lives was with their current partner. So choose your companion with care, especially as you reach the highly anticipated age of 46.

The roundup also found that older couples that have regular sex are happier than those who do it less often. That’s not to say, however, that a daily dose of sex is the key to relationship satisfaction. (Check out: How Much Sex is Normal For a Satisfying Sex Life?)
