Tuesdays With Nina: A Woman's Sex Drive is Like a Mountain Range...There's More Than Just One Peak.

Women have been told that they reach the top rung of the sexual ladder later than men do, but what does that really mean? Is it possible to quantify the female libido chronologically?

Wonderful article! As a woman over 60 whose sex life is much better now than it ever was when I was younger, I appreciate you de-bunking the myth that women peak at a certain age, and then it is just downhill from there.

I am 42 and about six months ago hormones hit like a tsunami. I am horny all of the time. My doctor says I am going into Pre or Perimenopause, what ever it is it is fantastic. I finally feel that my hormones match my mental desires. My female friends are in shock, most of them have been complaining about losing their drives and I do not remember being this horny even in my 20s.

Anyway wonderful article, you are so right about feeling comfortable with yourself and knowing yourself helping as you age.

My husband always told me that when I hit 40 that I would become hornier. He said he'd always heard that men were at their peak when they were younger (teens and early 20s) and that women were at their peak in their 40s, as far as libido goes. It seems that, at least with me, this cliche is true.

I like the analogy of a mountain range because I have found that my libido has sometimes dipped, sometimes risen, and sometimes remained at a plateau for a long period of time.
