Any other 40+ year old guys finding libido actually INCREASING with age?
An_254892 posted:
Hello. I'm new to this site.

So I am wondering how many other guys in their 40s or maybe even older have found that instead of their libido diminishing as they get older, it actually increases?

I've read that with women, typically the libido increases in their later 30s and 40s. With men, my understanding is that it is typically the opposite; the libido diminishes as a guy gets into his 40s.

With my personal situation, it seemed to decline some in my 30s but seems to have come back full force lately. To the point that it can be distracting while I'm trying to focus on work or other things.

Just wondering if I'm the only one or if there are any other guys out there like me? Any idea why we would be different from the norm?
