According to a new study a person’s sex life reaches its peak in their sixties.

The eighth annual Singles in America survey was taken by more than 5,000 single people in the US and found single women are having the best sex at 66 years old and men at 64.

According to sex therapist Dr Madeleine Castellanos, lovemaking is more fulfilling for single men and women in their 60s because they are experienced, they know what they want and are free to explore the dimensions of their sexuality.

Speaking to Daily Mail Online, she said that as one gets older they know what they like physically.

While many think younger people have a better time having sex, the recent survey revealed it actually gets better with age.

A study published by National Commission on Aging found women, in particular, said sex in their 70s was at least as satisfying or more satisfying physically than it was in their 40s.
