The complicated sex life of baby boomers

The fastest growing market in sex education today is the “Baby Boomers.” They grew up in the hot ’60s and are now confronting their own myths around sexuality, mid life and aging. Most Boomers grew up believing that after 50 was a fast trip into a kind of sexual deep sleep. And now that many Boomers have received their AARP card, they are finding that they’re not ready for their sexuality to retire. Not even close! It’s time for the world to stand up and take notice.

Drum roll please! The Over 50, mid life, baby boomer sexual being has arrived. What they want is support and information around how to expand their sexuality with changing bodies.

Let’s Bust Some Myths Around Sexuality After 50

1. Over 50 men and women are reporting they they are indeed very interested in sex! For many there is a renewed curiosity abut their bodies and a deep desire to explore their eroticism more fully. A National Council on Aging survey reports that among people age 60 and over who have regular intercourse, 74 percent of the men and 70 percent of the women find their sex lives more satisfying than when they were in their forties.

2. While bodies may be changing and needing some special attention such as hormonal shifts in women after menopause: Boomers are reporting a willingness to explore their sexuality in many out of the box ways. They are exploring “Tantra”, taking retreats centered around sexuality, seeking out the support of sex coaches and therapists. The Over 50 crowd is ready and willing to explore. They tend to be adventurous, orgasmic, and sexually curious.

3. So what is the sexy mid lifer seeking?  With all the focus on mid-life plastic surgery, diets, and botox you would think that sexuality in mid life is all about looking younger and attracting a partner. While that may be true for some, it’s not what I’m seeing in my sex coaching practice or at my retreats for women. There is a shift. Boomers are wanting to “feel” sexy inside. Many are on a quest to find out what their sexual desires really are, and how to safely express them. If not now, when?
