Enjoying sex later in life
Doing things you used to enjoy at the beginning of your relationship may restore intimacy.
If sustaining intimacy is becoming more difficult, there are many approaches that can help.
Satisfying sex depends on several things—presence of desire, arousal, absence of pain, and an ability to reach orgasm. After menopause, libido declines, and physical changes can result in difficulty becoming aroused, painful intercourse, and failure to climax—setting the stage for dissatisfaction and often the avoidance of intimacy.
