Not everything is Doom and Gloom. Some women we interviewed said that they were actually enjoying sex more now. “I’m more comfortable saying what I want, and not feeling dyahe,” says Cora, a legal secretary. “Plus after many years, my husband and I know more about each other and are more honest with each other.”
“When I turned 35, I started going to the gym,” recounts Mitzi, a professional chef. “It was my birthday gift to myself to make myself feel and look young even when the clock was ticking. As I lost weight, not that I was super thin but I felt good about the way I looked, my interest in sex increased. And mas flexible na ako ngayon!”
Patricia noticed that her sex life also improved soon after she and her husband survived a marital problem. “I think it reinforced the fact that we loved each other and wanted to work things out. The problem wasn’t completely solved, but the commitment was more solid. I think that brought us closer together and our sex life reflected that.”
