Some things just get better with age and it seems our sex is one of them. A new study reveals that women ages 45 to 54 are the “happiest” with their sex lives. Sexual wellness app Lover asked 15-hundred coupled-up ladies about their sex lives and it turns out, those in this age goup were most likely to say there’s “no room for improvement.”

Women between 18 and 24 are the second happiest group, followed by ages 25 to 34, then women between 35 and 44 and 55 to 64. Respondents also shared the top five things that would help increase sexual satisfaction post-pandemic: increased self-confidence, romance, foreplay, higher libido and less anxiety. Overall, 17.4% of those surveyed say a confidence boost would improve their sex lives and those in the 35 to 44 age group report a “better mental connection” with their partner would help.

So what’s the secret to success for the ladies who are happiest with their sex life? They know what makes them feel good. “The primary reason the data suggests women in the 50+ bracket report more satisfying sex is they are more likely to consistently orgasm,” explains Dr Britney Blair, co-founder of the Lover app. “They are more confident in asking a lover for what they want and better understand how their body experiences pleasure.”
