A new study has found that women going through menopause may have fewer nights of passion but they do however, become more adventurous in bed as they grow older.
The researchers analysed data from 39 women aged 46 to 59, who were asked to provide details of their sex lives.
These women have had experiences with loss of libido and other changes related to hormonal fluctuations of menopause.
Many revealed that their low sex drive was because of stressful jobs, family life and rocky relationships.
They also revealed to being more confident now compared to when they were younger as well as being better at communicating their needs and willingness to talk about topics such as the use of Viagra.
Daily Mail reports that many of these women also confessed to being more open to try new sex positions and spending more time on four play.
The researchers from University of Pittsburgh found that many have adapted these lovemaking adventures to make up for their age and the changes menopause caused on their bodies.
Lead author, Holly Thomas said one of the most enlightening findings was a large number of women who had successfully adapted to any negative changes by modifying their expectations regarding sexual activity, putting more emphasis on the emotional and intimacy aspects of sex or adapting the sex acts themselves.
A relationship expert Dr Pam Spurr said there is a lot of good news in this study.
“With age, women gain more wisdom about their sexual responsiveness and pleasure. Such self-knowledge helps rekindle the spark that might have be lost.”
