You’d imagine that one of the best parts about being with a sexy, older man—or any good looking man for that matter—is the sexual energy that you have together. But it turns out that a lot of women feel anything but sexy in their relationships.
A survey done by a British online erotic boutique found that a pretty significant number of women don’t feel like they have the confidence and/or enthusiasm for sex. Out of the 1,000 U.K. women polled, more than half said that they lacked the self-confidence to feel sexy, and almost a quarter of them said that they had no passion for sex. Nearly three quarters of the respondents felt that these negative feelings have impacted their relationships.
What’s especially interesting about this study is what it unveiled on how to solve the problem, which is relevant to every woman struggling with similar feelings in her relationship. According to the results, 40% of the women said that when they received compliments from their partner, it made them feel sexier, which often makes for a more enjoyable experience in the bedroom. Also, 37% admitted that they’d like to hear their men tell them more often that they’re sexy.
It’s common to hear about older men not being able to keep up with their younger women in the bedroom, but it can go the other way too. A lot of younger women who are dating older men can sometimes feel that they won’t be able to live up to their partners’ past lovers, which can be a big blow to their confidence. So, if you’re reading these numbers and feel like you can relate, it might not be such a bad idea to drop some hints to your older man, or maybe leave this article somewhere he’ll be sure to see it.
