Females 'feel fab at 50'Posted on: March 14, 2013 11:51:00
Older UK singles will be pleased to hear that life in fact begins at 50, a new study has found.
No longer deemed to be 'over the hill', more mature females are embracing life after reaching the big 5-0 and in fact, are feeling happier and sexier than they have ever felt.
According to the research, reaching the half-century milestone is actually a positive landmark, not a time to be considering pension plans, slippers and repeats of Antiques Roadshow.
Speaking to 1,500 British women aged between 20 and 65, Playtex found that sex, wellbeing and relationships all improved later on in life.
Half of respondents said they were more content with their lives and the same amount of women agreed they got more enjoyment out of spending quality time with loved ones.
Marica Carleschi, marketing manager for the lingerie brand that conducted the study said it was "fantastic" to witness so many women in their 50s enjoying life more than ever.
"The research results prove that life gets more exciting and adventurous at 50, and that women should not be defined by age any more," she added.
Senior singles were found to be just as keen to find romance as their younger counterparts, with 11 per cent of unattached women heading online in their quest for love, the findings showed.
Playtex's survey also revealed that one in five women over 50 enjoy intimate relations at least once a week and as many as 27 per cent admitted they enjoy sex more than ever.
Recent findings by Age UK also helps dispel the myth that the wants and needs of an older person diminishes later in life.
Lucy Harmer, head of information and advice at the charity said that having a healthy sex life is important, regardless of age.
"The changes that many people face as we age, such as the menopause or finding our joints become less supple, don't necessarily mean our sex life has to stop," she said.
