Women reach their sexual peak in their 30s, men in their early 20s
Could this possibly be true? Do different sexes “peak” sexually at different ages. Possibly.
But probably not.
“This commonly gets thrown around in popular media portrayals, like Stifler’s mom hooking up with high school and college students,” said Lehmiller. “They’re supposedly the right match because they’re at their peak and she’s at her peak, but if you look at the research, there does seem to be some peaks that go along with our age but they’re really not as big as the popular media makes them out to be.”
So this is false. Sort of.
“There’s some research that shows that women have more thoughts and fantasies about sex in their 30s but it’s not doubling or dramatically increasing. There’s a slight increase,” continued Lehmiller. “And the same is true with younger men. They tend to have more thoughts and fantasies about sex than older men but it’s really not like the huge difference that everyone seems to assume.”
