Missing Out In Intimacy
There is plenty of good that can be said for casual hookups but Linda Banner, health psychologist and sexual medicine expert, says that as men age, a deeper connection can make a significant difference in how they enjoy sex. "After 25 years working in this field, my hypothesis is still that the men's area of sexual arousal in the brain changes and they may need more 'emotional arousal' [as they get older]," she says. She says this change seems to occur around age 40.
The solution: Talking authentically and honestly with your partner is an easy way to increase intimacy. If you're ready for more of a commitment (or want to give an already serious commitment an added boost), set aside time for date nights and other romantic gestures to foster a deeper emotional connection.
