As we grow older, our bodies go through a myriad of changes that impact our hormones, circulation and even neurological health. Any one of these could cause difficulties in the enjoyment of and satisfaction from sexual relations. Thankfully, as a society we are now more open than ever before in seeking help for sexual problems, be it through a sex therapist or medication but for minor issues, there are many things we can do to help ourselves.
Get Educated – There are many places to seek information and guidance on a range of sexual problems. These can be found online or available in specialist books on the subject. If talking about the problem is too hard, then finding the information and sharing it with a partner in print form might be easier for you.
Spend Time – As we get older, it can take longer to feel aroused and reach orgasm. It might not happen quite as quickly as it did in the passionate ecstasy of youth. It can help to find a quiet uninterrupted time to devote to love-making where there is no pressure. This can lead to finding new, deeper and more meaningful sexual experiences with your partner.
Stay Healthy – Physical and mental wellbeing is paramount to an enjoyable sex life. Checking that there are no underlying health problems is also a good idea, especially if engaging in a new relationship.

Focus On Touching – Take the pressure away from intercourse and simply spend time reconnecting with each other’s bodies and your own body. This helps to reestablish intimacy but without any pressure. There are books and videos available that can help teach exercises to increase sensitivity and reawaken passion.
Exercise The Pelvic Muscles – This works for both men and women and can improve sexual fitness. Holding the contractions for 2 or 3 minutes will help to strengthen the pelvic floor muscle and these exercises can be done discreetly anywhere and at any time.
Relaxation Techniques – As with anything, if you get tense or stressed beforehand, the activity won’t be as much fun. Try not to let worries get inside your head. Why not consider doing something relaxing before such as going for a nice meal or even trying some yoga, deep breathing exercises or meditation?
Try New Positions – Not only does this make love-making a bit more interesting but can also help in overcoming some of the problems. Perhaps a different position will help to focus attention on the G-spot and make orgasm easier.
Keep Up Physical Affection – Along with staying calm and focusing on touching, try to maintain the level of physical closeness you share with your partner, such as cuddling, holding and kissing, for example. These actions are essential for maintaining a mental and physical bond with someone.
