Young people across the world are using technology as well as all means at their disposal to meet more people and have more sex. But access to more information has also busted a lot of myths about action in bed when people get old.

While it is known that people do tend to lose interest in sex with age, it turns out they can tackle it better if they accept changes in sexual desire from time to time. Expecting libido to remain the same is actually responsible for people experiencing difficulty performing in bed.

Women who have such expectations are in denial of the issues in their sex life and tend to disengage emotionally. A study found that women who understand the fluctuating nature of their sex drive are less likely to think that way.

This happens as despite having a low libido their sex life isn’t affected because they don’t end up feeling helpless. Loss of sexual desire is something a lot of women face.
