At age 55, men can expect another 15 years of sexual activity, but women that age should expect less than 11 years, according to a study by University of Chicago researchers published early online March 10 by the British Medical Journal. Men in good or excellent health at 55 can add 5 to 7 years to that number. Equally healthy women gain slightly less, 3 to 6 years.
When it comes to men and their sexual peak, there's a widespread notion that men reach the pinnacle at 18 -- and remain there throughout their 20s. Studies show that the male sex hormone, testosterone, begins to peak as a man moves from his teens into his 20s. By age 18, male testicles are producing the most testosterone they ever have -- or will -- in a man's lifetime.
Most of us have heard at some point or another that men and women, the Marses and Venuses of the humanoid planetary system, are star-crossed lovers: Men hit their sexual peak at 18, while women hit their sexual peak at 35, never the twain to peak or orgasm simultaneously. A recent column in The Telegraph complicates this further by suggesting that we start calling women in their 50s or 60s particularly those who prefer younger mennot Cougars, but WHIPs: Women who are hot, intelligent and in their prime.

There are many stereotypes that portray men as sex-obsessed machines. Books, television shows, and movies often feature characters and plot points that assume men are crazy about sex and women are only concerned with romance. So what stereotypes about the male sex drive are true?
Those numbers imply that boys are at their best sexually before they even officially become men and that by the time women are ready to go, those dudes are 17 years into a long, slow decline. Depressing AF, am I right? First of all, the definition of sexual peak has varied through the years.
IT'S long been thought women reach their sexual peak a little later than men. But, chances are girls, you'll be having the best sex of your life a little earlier than you expected - in fact, you might have already had it. While past research has shown a woman's libido is most rampant in her 30s, new findings suggest that might not be true.
Is it true that men reach their sexual peak during late adolescence, while women come into their own at the ripe of 35?
