SEX DRIVES PEAK
Men have less sex as they age! Age and sex drive are closely related. A man’s sex drive peaks in his early 20s and gradually decreases as he reaches his 30s and beyond. In addition, men who are 40 and older are more likely to have problems with sexual function including erectile dysfunction. However, women’s libido increases as fertility declines and after menopause. In addition, certain foods, such as leafy greens, fatty fish, healthy oils and onions, can increase testosterone production as part of a balanced diet. A healthy lifestyle is more important for testosterone levels than a specific diet.
TESTOSTERONE AND SEX DRIVE
The levels of testosterone play a major role in male sex drive. Testosterone is the primary sex hormone responsible for male sexual development and associated with sex drive. However, the levels of testosterone often decline at the age of 30 and reach their lowest levels after 70. Low testosterone in men is called male hypogonadism. Men with hypogonadism may experience reduced sex drive, erectile dysfunction, infertility, and depression.
