Combating Mismatched Libido...

Over half of Australian women (58%) said their libido was highest between the ages of 18 and 24.

Far fewer men are peaking at the same age (42% say they desired sex most between 18 and 24). Only 19% of men said they peaked between 18 and 20.


Recent results of 1,418 Australians surveyed.

The new findings challenge previous research suggesting that women take longer than men to reach their sexual peak - with 30s being accepted as the decade when female desire was highest.

In fact, female desire appears to tail off a little with age - just 11% of women said their libido peaked between 28 and 33 compared to 17% of men. Male libido is higher throughout their 30s too - 20% of men said it peaked in this decade compared to just 15% of women.
The results appear to show that sexual compatibility is more important to women than men in a relationship: a mismatched libido has caused problems in a relationship for 51% of women compared to 43% of men.
