I'm just wondering what the sex drive is for a man between 50-55.

From my personal experience with the age bracket - it's outstanding! But, like anything else, it usually varies by individual. I just never lodged any formal complaints with men in this age braket at all.

Why don't you have sex with one and find out. Just a suggestion.

Its been my personal experience and from talking with male friends and co-workers 41-60 that male sex drive decreases after 40. Hearsay would indicate that 85% of my bfs male friends over 45 have a prescription for viagra or are seeking treatment for low testosterone levels.

You guys need a different set of friends.


Over 50? Less than 30 but not so much so you'd really notice. Fatigue will play a role, both your's and your partner's.

Even on anonymous forums, men are often reluctant to admit to loss of virility.

It's a fact that testosterone levels drop as a man ages, which generally means a lessening of sex drive and more difficulty in performing although YMMV. Nothing at all to be ashamed of. If it bothers a man, he certainly shouldn't be reluctant to explore Viagra, etc.

Personally speaking, at 52, I can admit sex isn't the preoccupation it was when I was in my 20's. it's kind of nice not being a slave to that maddening male sex drive. A lot of good men go astray chasing that elusive triangle.

It depends on the man. You can't generalize and say ALL men in this bracket are sex crazed lunatics or all men in this age bracket are impotent or not interested in sex. It's individual.
