Episode 28: How To Have Great Sex For Your Entire Life


People have a tendency to think that the best sex of their life is in the past—it’s the sex they had when they were younger. So when people think about what their sex lives will look like in the future, they don’t necessarily see themselves as having much to look forward to. However, this line of thinking is all wrong. Sex can—and often does—get better with age. So what do you need to know when it comes to having great sex for your entire life?

For this episode of the Sex and Psychology Podcast, I sat down with author Tracey Cox. Tracey has been writing about sex for 30 years and has published 16 books, with her latest being Great Sex Starts at 50. She has been everywhere in the media, she writes a regular column for MailOnline, and she hosts a weekly radio show. Tracey also has her own line of sex toys with Lovehoney.

We talk about how to cultivate good habits in the bedroom to keep your sex life hot for decades to come. We also address common sexual issues that arise and how to deal with them effectively.

Specific topics we cover include:

  • How can sex get even better as we get older?
  • How do you start conversations about sex with your partner—and keep them going over time?
  • Why should we stop thinking about orgasm as the ultimate goal of sex?
  • How do you deal with body image issues that negatively impact your sex life?
  • How do you get the spark back in your relationship when passion declines?
  • Why is monogamy harder on women’s libido than it is on men’s?
  • How do you deal with common sexual problems that arise with age (e.g., vaginal dryness, erectile dysfunction)?
  • How can using sex toys transform your sex life?
  • How do you deal with a sexless marriage or relationship?
