Sexual Peaks - Biological or Influenced By Society?

PussyGalore PussyGalore
You've heard it time and again - Women reach their sexual peak in their late 20's or 30's (depending on which camp you listen to) and men reach their peaks in their late teens and early 20's.

Do you think this has anything to do with biology or do you think it is based on society's opinions on who is or is not allowed to enjoy sexual pleasure and exploration? Another avenue, perhaps? Discuss.

i think it also has to do with who you are with, how happy you are, how hectic your life is, mental health status, relationship status, etc.

as far as society...i've never let them influence my sex life

then there are hormones... that is a possibility. when i was on the pill my drive was in the dump.

and of course, to me the big factor: how satisfying is your sex life

So many factors come into play with this. I think it is a crock. I know men in their 40s that are having the best sex of their lives and surely did not when they were awkward teenagers.

Interesting association there...best sex of their lives in reference to peaks.

I have always heard that women reach their sexual peaks closer to 40 than 30 and definitely not 20. I don't think it's all societal though because there is plenty of science to back up the theory.

There's another thread similar to this. I've really just begun my sexual peak and I'm 38 but I've never been so intense before in my life. In my teens it was new and scary, in my 20s it was about having kids and now in my late 30s life has settled out and I can enjoy my sexuality. Can only imagine what the 40s and beyond will be like. Don't think it's society though. It has just been the natural course for myself and I assume other women follow similar paths - doesn't mean we all do or should though.

I think some of the others are right on this, it has a lot to do with who YOU are, the relationship with your partner, and what is going on in your life. then after all of that comes the hormone levels. I also find it hard to believe that a woman is in her "prime" in her 30's. halfway to menopause. doesnt make sense to me. as long as I can remember, I have had a very high libido. even when I wasnt supposed to have a libido. personally, I think in the end, it has a little to do with both.
