Neither is true in my case. What woman of my age would want a man who has had no sexual relationships or experiences?

Why would women be more sexually active in their middle years than in their teens and 20s? Buss and his students say evolution has encouraged women to be more sexually active as their fertility begins to decline and as menopause approaches. This trauma left a psychological imprint to bear as many children as possible. However, after the mids, the lizard-brain impulse to have more kids faces a stark reality: it's harder and harder to get pregnant as a woman's remaining eggs age.

And so women in their middle years respond by seeking more and more sex. To test this theory, Buss and his students asked women to complete questionnaires about their sexual habits. And, indeed, they found that women who had passed their peak fertility years but not quite reached menopause were the most sexually active.

Women in their middle years were also more likely than the younger women to fantasize about someone other than their current partner.

The new findings are consistent with those of an earlier Buss paper , from , which found that women in their early 30s feel more lustful and report less abstinence than women in other age groups.

In both studies, these findings held true for both partnered and single women, meaning that married women in their 30s and early 40s tend to have more sex than married women in their early 20s; ditto for single women. Also, whether the women were mothers didn't matter. Only age had a strong affect on women's reported sexual interest and behavior.

And yet there are a few flaws with the data in the new paper. Chiefly: some three-quarters of the participants in the study were recruited on Craigslist, a website where many go to seek hookups, meaning there was a self-selection problem with the sample. The other participants were students at the University of Texas in Austin. The authors also note that there are some alternative explanations for why women in their 30s and early 40s might be more sexual.
