inews.co.uk – Women who have sex on a weekly or monthly basis have a lower risk of entering menopause early than those who have sexual activity less than once a month, a study finds.

Researchers found that women who engage in any degree of sexual activity – including anything from a caress to full intercourse – every week were 28 percent less likely to have experienced menopause at any given age than women who did so less than once a month.

“The findings of our study suggest that if a woman is not having sex, and there is no chance of pregnancy, then the body ‘chooses’ not to invest in ovulation, as it would be pointless,” said lead researcher Megan Arnot, a Ph.D. student at University College London.

Swedish Research on Sex After 70

VeryWellHealth.com – Since 1970, researchers in Sweden have been surveying people over the age of 70 about their sex lives.

One very interesting thing about the Swedish study is that we can compare this data from the 1970s to data we have today.

In 1971, only 52 percent of married men aged 70 and up reported that they were still sexually active. In more recent research, that figure increased to 68 percent.

Similarly, just 38 percent of married women over the age of 70 reported being sexually active in 1971, compared to 56 percent quoted in more recent research.

For unmarried older adults, there has been a similar increase in reported instances of sexual activity. 30 percent of single men and less than 1 percent of single women reported being sexually active in the context of that 1971 study.

Now, 30 percent of single men and 12 percent of single women report that they are still having sex.

How Much Sex Are They Really Having?

Older adults are having more sex than you might think.

Of all the sexually active older adults, 25 percent report having sex at least once a week (compared with 10 percent in the 1970s).

Not only that, but at least half of the men and women said their relationships were “very happy.”

Which Older Adults Are More Likely to Be Sexually Active?

A further review of the data found these factors were most associated with being sexually active at age 70:

  • Positive attitude toward sexuality
  • Being married or cohabitating
  • Having a very happy relationship … Read more.
