Male decline in sex drive?

evie.amor evie.amor
I'm 22 and my man is 38 and I always have to initiate sex, sometimes I'm begging for it! Is this common for men when they get older?

My man is quickly coming up on 50, and his sex drive is still plenty strong. In fact, he says we have a better sex life together than he has had in past relationships. Being 38 years old is not "older" in my book, either.

First question: did your bf have a higher sex drive before, and this is a change you've seen during your time together? Or did your bf have a low sex drive when you met him? He may just have a lower sex drive than you normally. Doesn't mean anything is wrong with you or with him, just that you might not be a good match in that department.

Other than that, if he used to have a high sex drive, and this is a change you've noticed - it's time for a check up! Lots of things can cause a change in sex drive, from depression to low testosterone. Any changes in medication can affect it too. So if this is different from how he used to be, it would be a good time for him to get that check up he's probably been putting off!

Best wishes!

I have a similar age difference in our relationship. Haven't figured a solution out.

I'm 19 and he's 31. He says that he can't have sex quite as often as when he was in his early 20s, but he still has a rather high sex drive. Not quite as high as mine, but we usually manage about once a day when he see each other. This is down from 2-3 times a day during the first few months of our relationship.

Yes, His sex drive has declined seriously since he turned 40. I am only 42 and he is 50 and it sucks soooooo much!

Mid 40s guy here. I'm still horny most of the time, but maybe a bit less than my 20s-30s...just a bit though, as in I can't wait longer for it.

We are both in our 30's (cringe) but I did notice that his sex drive hasn't necessarily dropped, but it does come and go in waves. As we have said to each other, "It is not that I don't WANT to have sex, it is just that my body is not into it." I think it mostly has to do with having kids and working so much. Plus, stress can be a HUGE factor.
