7 tips for better sex after 50

by Margery Gass | Aug 01, 2013
I recently compiled some tips for better sex after age 50 for the Cleveland Clinic—here’s the quickie version of the list:

1. Practice, practice, practice. Remaining sexually active preserves the physical functioning of your vagina.
2. Lubricate and moisturize if you’re experiencing dryness.
3. Don’t be shy—talk to your healthcare provider about any sexual problems you are experiencing.
4. No libido? Therapy may help. Relationship issues may be related to a lack of desire.
5. Think your sex life could be better? Talk it through and share your feelings with your partner.
6. Talk a walk—and do it regularly. Exercise will make you feel and look better.
7. Try something different. Different sexual positions can make intercourse more comfortable and more interesting.
For more detailed sexual problems and solutions, read the full article and visit our Sexual Health & Menopause module.
