Sex may be associated with dewy youth and high velocity hormones, but there's a lot to be said for the pleasure that only comes with age. Although mainstream media mostly depicts young folks having all the hot and heavy sessions, multiple scientific studies which delve into women's perceptions of their sex lives have shown that older women have better sex.
