The study comes as a challenge to notions that women achieve a peak in sex drive at a later stage in comparison to men.

Young people take sex in a relationship and as a part of their overall lifestyle very seriously with rising awareness as well as access to information. But studies have pointed out that people of all ages are having more sex and elderly couples are also putting more effort in their sex life.

While there’s no age limit when it comes to being active in bed since sex drive depends on several factors, research suggests that the libido in women is highest between the ages of 18 and 24. One in four women also said that they had the best sex of their life between ages of 18 and 20.

 

On the other hand a very small number of men mentioned having their best sexual encounter between 18 and 20. The research comes as one that challenges notions that women reach the peak of sexual desire at a later stage than men.

In fact these findings suggest that sex drive in women actually starts fading away a little as they get older. Meanwhile the same for men was seen as higher in their 30s.

The research also showed that women value compatibility more than men as mismatch in libido caused issues for 48 percent women in a relationship as compared to 41 percent men.
