    Post Menopausal Sex
    An_241042 posted:
    I am a 50 year old divorced male who has always dated younger women. Recently I met a 51 year old female and we have been dating for about a month. The other night we were talking about sex when she brought up the topic about me dating only younger woman, She told me she went through menopause three years ago. My question is to the members: Is sex really that different? Will a post menopausal woman lubricate if there is lots of forplay first? I have never been with a woman over 42 so really have no experience when it comes to this. Please tell me what to expect and what I can do to make our first night together an experience we will remember forever. Thanks

    I am in my late fifties and I can tell you that it depends on several factors. If she has been regularly sexually active it is easier for her to lubricate naturally with foreplay. (The old "use it or lose it" is very true in this case.) If she is receiving hormone replacement therapy it also helps with natural lubrication. If she hasn't had regular sex and not on HRT she can have dry and thinning vaginal tissues and experience uncomfortable or painful sex, so be gentle. Post menopausal women appreciate Astro-Glide.

    Good luck,
