The Dirty Thirties

Think the party is over when you turn 30? Think again. 

In 1953, Alfred Kinsey proposed the theory that women reach a sexual peak in their early-to-mid thirties. Women at this age reported having the most frequent orgasms, so he believed they had a stronger sex drive due to changes in hormone levels. Later research on this claim has been inconclusive.

Most women reach a hormonal peak during their mid-to-late twenties, but there is no evidence to prove that there is a clear sexual peak at any specific age. Many have dismissed it as myth, leading a lot of people to believe that the best sex happens before 30 and it’s all down hill from there. However, some women still report that they feel a spike in their sexuality after 30.

Sexual desire and response are complex and change a lot over time based on a variety of factors, so there are plenty of reasons why women might feel like they’ve reached their sexual peak in or around their thirties.
