    i am a woman in my late 30’s. i am dting a 47 year old guy who has been divorced 2x. Sex is a issue between us. he claims that our age difference is the problem, he doesnt require sex like i do. my man is the one who doesnt know what to do. how can i get him to explore his sexual desires with out making him feel bad about himself?

    Believe him! He really doesn’t require that much sex. Its part of aging. However, to make the sex you do have more fulfilling, be sure to praise what he does that you like. “I love it when you…” is a real turn on that will ensure that he does “that thing” more often.

      No, reduced sex drive is not always part of aging. There are men in their sixties who want sex every day, no Viagra needed. People are different, and health makes a big difference. Seek out men who are active and in good shape. They are likely to have a much higher sex drive, and that would be true at any age.

      • Gary says:

        As for the show in general, I disagree with the general rules given by the hosts about age disparity. Sure, it’s good advice for many people, but I know a couple who got married when she was 22 and he was 42. They were happily married for 43 years!!! So please qualify your advice when you make generalizations. Your assumptions don’t apply to everyone.

        • Gary says:

          Disagree with Mike’s advice for women to wait until 30 to have children. There might be a good psychological argument for that in our society of stretching our “youth” and trying to get a career started first, but biology is not cooperating with that argument. The fact is that for many women, risks of pregnancy complications, and even the ability to become pregnant and deliver a healthy child is already starting to decline at 30, and is in a precipitous decline by 35. By age 40, MOST women will experience difficulties and complications, and for many it is already too late.
          Mike, women biologically just don’t have that kind of time. Your advice might be better applied to just men, who are more immature. And so perhaps your argument is rather for a woman to marry an older and more mature man to get pregnant early.

    Michael is soo much direct and blunt in his opinion (hahaha), but he is just very realistic in the way he sees life. haha, not so romantic at all, but it is really helpful for women who really think that they can trust every men they see. There are really women who think that !
