How to be happier and healthier in your golden years? Have sex!
You have finally reached the age of retirement! Congratulations! Now you can cash out your retirement accounts and say goodbye to clocking into work every day. Your days are now your own. You can do whatever you want, like cook, travel, watch documentaries back to back, hang out at the beach for 3 hours on a Tuesday for no reason, and visit that friend you have wanted to see for the last decade. And since you're at your home all day long, you can now have sex whenever you want. No matter what stage of life, sex always makes you happier and healthier, so sex should not be shunned in your old age. Here's a few ways to improve your sex life even though your hair is completely gray.
Don't let old age slow you down.
Society often regards elderly people as sexless old entities who like to give children candy and yell at teenagers. But the self-reported sex lives of those who are retirement age tell a very different story. Older people still like having sex as much as they did when they were young, but now they have a major obstacle preventing them from doing so. Their knees are weak, they're on medication, which tires them out, and they have arthritis and back pain.
So you can say that the will to have sex is there, but the body won't listen. So do not allow the media and ignorant people to make you think less of your sex life. Enjoy as much as you can. Plus, it now counts as a form of exercise! It certainly gets the heart pumping. Okay, I don't know if those last two sentences are true. But what did you expect? You're taking advice from a porn website, and they did not hire a doctor to write this.
How to improve your sex life in your golden years
So if you are looking to have more sex with your partner of 15 years or the hot placing you met at the retirement home, there are few things you can do to give your body an extra boost.
Ask your doctor about the alternate effects of your medicines.
All medications have some side effects, and one of their possible effects is depleting your energy. Anyone can experience medicinal side effects, so it is important to know how the medicine is affecting you. If you find that your medicine is robbing you of your energy, so you can't have sex, you must tell your doctor. Inform your doctor of this side effect that may cause them to put you on a new medication.
However, never stop taking any of your medications on your own. Always consult a doctor and get their professional advice.
The little blue pill is there to help any man who needs a little assistance in the bedroom. Taking Viagra is nothing to be ashamed about. Even 25-year-old men take it. A recent study said that one-third of all people who take Viagra don't have any erectile dysfunction issues, and they just take it recreationally.
Have sex that won't aggravate your back pain and steal your energy
If you are an older person, say goodbye to being the top part of the classic missionary position. This position is not for those who have body aches and pains and occasional dizziness and vertigo.
Now is the time to experiment with some new sexual positions. And if you buy a book called the Kama Sutra, you will have an endless amount of positions to choose from. It will be so fun for both you and your partner to browse through a sexual positions book and giggle like teenagers at all the different pictures. Who knows, maybe you'll get into the mood just by looking at the book!
When you got up there in age, your doctor probably told you to start eating healthier. Well, now it's my turn to tell you to eat healthier. A terrible diet robs us of our energy and does a number on our arteries. If you change your diet and eat healthier, you'll have more vitamins and minerals, which improves your body's functions and processes. You will also sleep better and have much more energy than ever before. Plus, a bad diet can sometimes aggravate arthritis. So throw away the soda and put some green veggies in your diet, and you should see an improvement in your health in one to two weeks.
Have sex with someone you're comfortable with.
Interacting with someone who is constantly judging you is never a pleasant situation to be in. Now change interacting to having sex, and you'll wish you never undressed and entered the room. If you have a partner that doesn't like what type of sex you two are having and is blaming you for all of the bedroom issues, you have a bigger problem than just old age.
Nobody wants to have sex with someone who is constantly hurting their feelings and making them feel inferior. If you are experiencing this type of relationship with your partner, then maybe the real issue for your lack of sex drive is not old age. Maybe your partner does not turn you on, and you resent being with them. If this is your issue, it cannot be fixed with a book and a few vegetables. You must find a way to talk to your partner and tell them how they make you feel. Conversations about sex are never easy, no matter what age you are. If you are dating someone who is treating you like this, then I suggest you stop dating them. These are your golden years: don't let someone rob you of them.
Having sex when you are old is not as easy as it once was, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't do it anymore. You'll have to experiment more and improve your eating, but you'll be so happy you did.
