The Queen has ruled for longer than any other Monarch in British history, becoming a much loved and respected figure across the globe. At 95 years old, she is known for her sense of duty and her devotion to a life of service as an important figurehead for the UK and the Commonwealth during times of enormous social change.

Sex is an important part of most women’s lives, and while some may think sex drive decreases as you get older, a new survey suggests that’s not necessarily the case.

A new poll of women ages 40 to 60 by Scarlet Society finds:

  • Women are spending 24% of their day thinking about sex.
  • Sadly though, only 27% of women say they are truly satisfied with their sex life.
  • Some of the top reasons they are unsatisfied include:
    • Being too tired (57%)
    • Lack of interest in sex (31%)
    • Vaginal dryness (28%)
  • So, what are the best ways to improve your sex life after 40?
  • Well, 60% of women say the best way for that to happen is to accept the natural changes in your body.
  • 58% say it’s important to let your needs be known.
  • 54% say it’s being confident.
  • Expressing what you want is important, with 55% of women saying they have no problem discussing their sexual needs with their partner, and only 26% keeping things to themselves.
  • And that certainly seems to be working for some…
  • 36% of women in their 40s say they’re having the best sex of their lives right now.
  • Although 47% of women in their 50s say they had their most satisfying sex in their 30s.
  • ONE MORE THING! As for where women in their 40s to 60s are most sexually satisfied, the survey finds it’s in the Southeast where 29% of women in that age group are sexually satisfied. That’s followed by women in the:
    • Southwest (22%)
    • Midwest (19%)
    • Northeast (19%)
    • West (18%)
