Worried you’ve already passed your peak? While only 15% of women said their libido peaked in their 30s, it’s not bad news. Longhurst reckons this earlier peak just means women have become more confident in the bedroom. “What the results show is growing female sexual confidence,” he says.
The results, from a survey of 1418 Aussies, also show that sex drive and compatibility is actually more important for women. A mismatched libido has caused issues in a relationship for 51% of women compared to 43% of men. Plus, nearly a third of women wished their sex drive was higher compared to just 21% of men.

So what does this mean? “Women are happier to talk about how important sex is to them and how sexual happiness is the key to a successful relationship,” says Longhurst. If sex is not working in a relationship, it is women who are keener to take the lead in fixing things, with more women than men saying the mismatched sex drives can be brought into alignment.” Bossy? You bet.
