Let’s get right to the point, over age 50, personal lubricant is essential.
There is no age limit on sexuality. But, over age 50 our bodies start to change. For women, menopause is a concern, as is vaginal dryness. For men, andropause, or male menopause, can occur due to lower levels of testosterone.
According to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services: National Institute on Aging, many women find their vaginal walls become thin and stiff—both of which can be attributed to aging. This means using personal lubricant can be a game-changer, with a lot of women using lube as a daily vaginal moisturizer to alleviate intimate discomfort.
For men over age 50, dealing with erectile dysfunction can be an issue. Using personal lubricant can help by making stimulation more comfortable and arousing.
Consider Erection Cream
That’s right, in addition to adding personal lubricant to your love life, using an erection cream that
contains natural ingredients helps encourage more oxygen-rich blood to circulate through your arteries, helping to improve the power of your penis no matter what age you are.
Swiss Navy’s Max Size Cream is a topical male enhancement treatment created to provide a unique transdermal delivery system for quick absorption and immediate results.
The active ingredient is Butea Superba, a well-documented and patented natural PDE-5 inhibitor. Traditionally, PDE-5 inhibitors are used to treat erectile dysfunction by inducing muscle relaxation and increasing the blood flow to the penis, leading to an erection.
Butea Superba is a vine that grows in India, China, Vietnam, and Thailand. The roots (tubers) are used as medicine. Most often, people use Butea Superba for sexual performance problems (erectile dysfunction ED) and lack of interest in sexual activity.
Female Stimulation Cream
Using a female enhancement cream can relax blood vessels and increase blood flow to erogenous areas, stimulating physical arousal, lubrication, and sensitivity.
Viva Cream has been providing women with intimate benefits for decades!
Regardless of age, women seek ways to enrich their lives and intimate relationships. Studies show up to 50% of women will experience a sexual dysfunction in their lifetime and that the majority of women do not achieve orgasm from intercourse alone. If orgasm is achieved, it is most often due to clitoral stimulation.
Viva Cream was designed for any female wanting to boost sensitivity and arousal.
And according to research, female participants trying stimulating creams noted an increase in “sexual arousal, lubrication, orgasm and satisfaction”, all of which can help lead to a better sexual experience as you age.
The Best Lube for People over 50
Hands down, silicone lubricants are best for sensitive genitals and are long-lasting and provide a slick cushion for penetrative sex.
Remember menopause from earlier? Menopause normally takes place in a female’s 40s or 50s, but the average age in the United States is 51. With the average American female expected to live to age 81, this means there are 30 sex-possible years in which to make sure the appropriate lubricant and topical enhancements are used.
Just like andropause, or male menopause, lowering levels of testosterone, menopause lowers estrogen, leading to intimate dryness and uncomfortable sex experiences—possibly even painful intimacy.
Personal Lubricants are designed to work quickly and offer convenient short-term solutions for more comfortable sexual experiences.
Silicone lubricants are touted for not drying out during sex and for those of you with sensitive skin, silicone lube is less likely to irritate tender places.
And for men who need more stimulation as they age, silicone lubricant goes the extra mile.
Yes, Aging Adults are Enjoying Sex—and it can Help You Live Longer!
Nearly 75% of older adults report they enjoy a satisfying sex life according to a University of Michigan national poll on healthy aging. This greater sense of sexual satisfaction may be due to having more life experience and information to pull from, in addition to developing more skills and knowledge in this area.
As we age, knowing that personal lubricants can help lead to better, more enjoyable sex is important.
Research shows the most common reasons why people report using lubricants have to do with sexual enhancement, comfort, and pleasure—all great reasons to add it to your sex life.
Plus, research has also revealed that having sex at least once a week can help a person live longer!
A study found the having weekly sex was associated with having longer telomeres, which are the protective “cap” on DNA that determines a cell’s lifespan. Longer telomeres are associated with slower cellular aging, and a higher life expectancy.
