Survey Reveals The Different Ages Men And Women Go Off Sex

And it's a lot sooner than you'd think

Men between the ages of 35 and 44 are likely to lose interest in sex according to a sexual attitudes survey, whereas women are likely to experience this much later in life.

Over 1,000 men and women from across the UK were questioned for the sexual attitudes survey published in BMJ Open.

While the study found that men were more consistent with their desires, it was in fact men who "go off" sex first.

The women questioned said they experienced a lack of interest between the ages of 55 and 64 - although it has been said women reach their sexual peak later.

However, couples who "always found it easy to talk about sex" were less likely to lose interest, as opposed to those who experienced sexual difficulties and lacked closeness in their relationships.

The study also found that women were more than twice as likely to lack interest in sex when living with their other half.
