If you’re in a relationship with an older man, there’s always going to be the chance, even if it’s just a slim chance, that one day he won’t be able to get it up anymore and your sex life will suffer as a result. Unfortunately, it’s a problem that May-December couples have to keep in mind, especially if it’s a relationship with an older man who’s over 50.
For a lot of May-December couples, sex is an important part of the relationship, so when things are going the way they’re supposed to, it can cause a lot of tension. Plus, the topic of the little blue pill can also be a point of contention. The good news, however, is there might be another way around it. If you’re in a relationship with an older man and you’re looking for ways to help boost his sex drive (and your sex life), the answer might be as simple as getting him to exercise more, according to new research published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine.
The results of the study revealed that when men frequently exercised on a weekly basis, it significantly improved their erectile and sexual function. And it really doesn’t take much—“frequent exercise” was the equivalent of two hours of a strenuous workout (swimming, running, etc.), three-and-a-half hours of moderate intensity exercise, or six hours of light exercise, which works out to less than an hour a day of light exercise. These findings held true for every race, too.
Of course, when it comes to sex, no two May-December couples are the same and approaching the topic of sexual function will probably be different for every man. But it’s worth a shot, isn’t it? And if all else fails, at least the exercise will benefit him in other ways, like improving his overall health and well-being. The only problem might be motivating him to get active if he’s used to living a sedentary lifestyle. But that’s where you come in. Why not make it something that the two of you do together? Seeing you in some sexy workout gear would definitely be an incentive for him to get up and moving. And his reward at the end of it all will be, well, you!
