As you age, your body will experience normal physical changes that can affect your sex life. The good news is that all these changes are not always bad.

Aging can have a positive effect on sexuality. Some women, for example, reported feeling the freedom to enjoy sex more when getting older because it does not need to think about the issue of birth control.

But some other women, there are emotional or physical changes that can make sex less enjoyable.

One of the problems common in older women are physical changes in the vagina. Vagina becomes shorter and more narrow.

Additionally, diminishing the supply of estrogen will cause the vaginal walls become thin and stiff. In addition, you will experience vaginal dryness or a lack of natural vaginal lubrication as you get older.

Practicing masturbation techniques can help overcome some of these problems by stimulating the brain to produce physical changes in the vagina.

“Masturbation may include stimulation of the clitoris, urethra, and vagina, which will activate the neural pathways responsible for the swelling of the clitoris, vaginal blood circulation congestion, widening of the vagina, and lubrication,”says Cathy K. Naughton, MD, director of the Metropolitan Urological Specialists’Center for Sexual Health in St. Louis, as quoted by everydayhealth, Thursday (06/14/2012).

Age may not be the only cause of vaginal dryness and pain during sex. Lack of sexual arousal also contribute to this problem.

Practicing masturbation techniques and become sexually aroused beneficial for older women who experience a lack of lubrication and the emergence of a sense of discomfort during sex.

And for women who no longer have an active sexual partner for divorced, widowed, or have a sick partner, masturbation can be a satisfactory substitute for sexual intercourse.

Investigators said there was no difference between premenopausal and postmenopausal women’s ability to get the stimulus.

When researchers studied blood circulation to the vaginal congestion in response to erotic stimuli, researchers found that older women can become sexually aroused when stimulated, as happens when a young man.

“Medically speaking, masturbation is physically safe and can offer individual sexual practices. However, it may be a problem if it is done to avoid intimacy,”said Dr. Naughton.
