Sex Advice

Dear Dr. Locker: Is it true that men reach their sexual peak at 18, and women at 30?

Answer from Dr. Locker

These stats have been bandied about like crazy but have little foundation in fact. The truth is that if you define "sexual peak" by your level of sexual satisfaction, then time is on everyone's side. Generally satisfaction increases with age, as men and women gain more experience figuring out what arouses them and more confidence voicing their needs to a partner. However, the bottom line is, these are skills you can learn at any age. So, look for a partner you are attracted to, have things in common with, and enjoy spending time with, rather than focusing on age. The connection between two compatible people may bring all sorts of "peaks," so to speak, into your future.
