London, Jan 10 — A survey has found middle-aged women are more satisfied with their sex lives as they get older, despite having less sex and admitting that their partners have performance issues in the bedroom.

Men, on the other hand, say they are less satisfied as time goes by, Daily Mail reported.

In a survey of 1,000 heterosexual couples, it was found that while nearly three-quarters of married or cohabiting women between ages 50 and 79 said they were satisfied with their sex lives, only half of men of the same age agreed.

Of those aged between 50 and 59, about 16 percent of the men were very dissatisfied with their sex lives compared to only 10 percent of the women.

It was found that women were generally satisfied with their sex lives if they felt they were getting as much or as little sex as they wanted. The actual frequency itself was not a determinant of satisfaction.
