Sexuality after 40 – Use it or Lose it!

Sexuality in women over 40? Does it exist? For most people its really not an issue because if you’re over 40:

  1. you’re probably not having any more kids so why should you be thinking of having sex?
  2. you should have grown out of it and should be interested in more “down-to-earth” things.

Do younger women have sex just to have kids? Can anyone outgrow the need for closeness and companionship?
