It will come as no surprise that the female baby boomers experience different reactions to aging than their male counterparts. Baby boomers are known as the greatest generation in history and with that title comes a change in attitudes toward all things centered on their sexuality. Unlike the generation of the boomers parents, the baby boomer woman has frequently enjoyed sex and expects to continue doing so well into their senior years. However, there was not a great deal of information readily available defining sexuality for these aging hipster women, often leaving them surprised at how strongly menopause affects their body and in turn their love life.
Esty – Baby Boomer Women and Sexuality
With the beginning of menopause many baby boomer women began to feel uncomfortable with the changing appearance of their bodies, as wrinkles and gray hairs begin to appear almost overnight. Changes in weight distribution and other self-image problems leave them feeling conflicted between wanting and fearing sexual pleasure at the same time. As their baby boomer bodies began to change they began to feel ugly, fat and worst of all undesirable. These changes are normal which makes it essential that boomer women learn to embrace themselves and also take extra care to increase their sensual feelings.
Simple things such as wearing makeup and keeping a current hairstyle can boost confidence, self-esteem and also improves her appearance. Adding a dab of a favorite perfume can become part of a daily ritual that enhances rather than inhibits her sexuality. This does not mean that baby boomer women must spend a great deal of time on these activities. Rather, it is that the choices in hairstyles and makeup should be flattering which in turn increases the libido.

Clothing choices in and out of the bedroom can often influence how a woman feels before she even connects with her partner. Purchasing attractive undergarments made out of sensuous fabrics and wearing flattering clothes can help her to appreciate her body throughout the day. These subtle cues send subliminal messages to the mind and also to her body throughout the day ensuring that feeling sexual and sensual is still a regular part of a baby boomers life.
It is not uncommon for many post-menopausal women to report an unexpected decrease in libido, the most troubling symptom described is excessive vaginal dryness that can make intercourse uncomfortable, or even painful. The huge changes in the hormones are the #1 reason for this and, there are multiple solutions available for women in this position.
Often lower levels of estrogen means that it takes longer for a woman to become aroused than when she was a younger woman. By simply increasing the amount of foreplay should help. Just thinking about the upcoming event well in advance can help to get a woman in the mood. While her partner certainly needs to take additional proactive steps to increase these thoughts, she must also be receptive to the idea.
Today there are hormone replacement therapies that do not require taking excessive quantities of estrogen to maintain adequate vaginal levels. These can also increase lubrication and vaginal sensation. The main options are:
– Vaginal ring. Made with a silicone and plastic base, these contain a small amount of estrogen and are placed high in the vagina by a medical professional. They need to be replaced every three months.
– Creams. Inserted twice weekly through a vaginal applicator, creams help to maintain healthy estrogen levels.
– Tablet. Similar to the estrogen cream, one of these tablets is inserted twice a week. These are good alternatives for those who find the creams messy or are concerned about the vaginal ring coming out or being an irritant to the vaginal lining.
Women may also find that the use of a water-based lubricant is sufficient to help them enjoy a natural sexual experience. There are an increasing number on the market that are designed to enhance the sexual experience of baby boomer women. They should be applied just prior to intercourse and reapplied as necessary for the comfort of both partners.
Perhaps one of the most interesting results that researchers have discovered is that baby boomer women who maintain an active sex life during and after menopause experience much less discomfort and dryness. For those who wish to continue enjoying sex, this indicates that doing so more often is a good idea.
Additionally, it is important that baby boomer women continue to maintain regular gynecological checkups even after menopause. Worrying about possible problems can also decrease sexuality and possibly even create additional issues in the long run. Performing regular self-breast exams and also paying attention to your own body is necessary for women of all ages not just the baby boomers.
By learning about the impending bodily changes, baby boomer women can become empowered to make healthy choices that will allow them to enjoy a safe and fulfilling sex life.
Testy – Baby Boomer Men and Sexuality
Just as women baby boomers have changing sexual issues as they age, so do the men. Hormonal changes which result in decreased testosterone production are sometimes referred to as Andropause, the male counterpart to Menopause. These changes can often leave many baby boomer men feeling very insecure and uncomfortable with their male sexuality for the first time in their lives.
For most men, the decrease in testosterone levels happens more gradually than what women experience, often beginning as early as age 30. The symptoms can include an overall reduction in energy levels and a much lower sex drive. Some men may have difficulty maintaining an erection or no longer have the sexual strength and stamina they did when younger. This phase in the baby boomer males’ life can be very devastating because the men really have no idea what male sexuality is.
However, this does not mean that baby boomer men need to give up having a satisfactory sexual life. Today there are multiple types of therapies and techniques available to help them continue to enjoy sex. While hormone supplements can be beneficial, they do come with potential side effects, including an increased risk for prostate cancer.
Men who begin to experience a decrease in desire or maintaining an erection throughout intercourse should not avoid sex. In fact, that may even exacerbate the problem much more. Though it may take additional time to get in the mood and an effort to maintain it, regular sexual intercourse is the best way to work through these issues. Baby boomer men taking their time to focus on sexuality as a whole and to appreciate all of the subtleties can go a long way toward keeping it enjoyable.
Doctors have a variety of medications they can prescribe to men who have difficulty maintaining an erection. Each works slightly differently and the potential benefits and side effects should be fully explored before a man decides to go this route. This is one time that a baby boomer needs to read the fine print.
Many men are uncomfortable even discussing erectile dysfunction, or impotence. Often feeling that they are less than a man and become embarrassed. However, it is a very common problem that is not only related to aging but can be due to another more serious health issue. By looking at other potential factors that could be creating erection difficulties, men can develop a plan to address their impotence from a variety of angles.
Today there are many medications that may decrease blood pressure or otherwise influence proper penile functioning. Also, regular consumption of alcohol or even some tobacco products can impede circulation to the penis and decrease sexual confidence, making men even more afraid to try future sexual contact.
What can a man do? Some men find that using a ring around the base of their penis is all that is necessary to keep it erect for the duration of intercourse. Usually put on an erect penis, these inexpensive plastic devices are simple to use and will last for years. It is important that a man find one that fits his penis properly. It should be snug without causing discomfort or pain.
Baby boomer men that experience difficulty in obtaining an erection may wish to employ a vacuum style device sold for this purpose. These can be obtained through a medical supply shop or a store that sells sexual aids. Once the man gets an erection, a ring is then placed at the base to maintain it until the conclusion of coitus.
As with baby boomer women and sexuality, boomer men also need to work on maintaining a healthy and active sex life in order to keep everything functioning properly. Any issues should be discussed with a doctor to determine the best course of treatment.
It is also extremely important for baby boomer men to have regular prostate exams after the age of forty and to perform regular self-checks for testicular irregularities at home. Doing so will help to ensure a happy and healthy sex life and to address any potential issues at the earliest signs.
Baby boomer men have every reason to continue to enjoy a natural sex life. Understanding how hormone levels and consumption habits can influence penile function assists men in having a well-rounded knowledge of their sexual health.
Baby boomers have always been known to explore a multitude of options for whatever they wanted to do. Unfortunately in the area of sexuality definition the baby boomer generation has often kept those issues a tight lipped secret. Could it be that they have forgotten their “wild” “unconventional thinking” ways? Maybe…
Baby Boomers, in general, help one another become healthier version of themselves without the gimmicks or hype.
