In fact, unsafe sex is common during the forties.
According to Tracy Cox, author of Sextacy, STIs have doubled in under a decade in people over 45 and are rising faster than teens.
Monique Schultz*, 47, admits to having rediscovered her mojo post-divorce.
“When I was married, it felt like more of a duty. Now it’s so much fun!” she says. Which makes sense: in a survey of 2 000 women, 77 percent said that their sex life was at its best in their forties; 82 percent even said that sex was more important to them than ever. Why?
A study in Personality and Individual Differences found that women with ebbing fertility feel a jolt in their sexuality. “It’s an unconscious attempt to capitalise on remaining fertility before menopause begins,” says study author Judith Easton.
The problem occurs, however, when you’re too tired, too busy, stuck in a rut – the excuses are endless.
