Scientists have identified the importance of sex for women. There is a widespread belief that they lose interest in intimacy with age, but new research indicates that there is a large percentage of the fair sex for whom it remains a significant part of life.

Research data prepared for the North American Menopause Society Online Conference. Over 3.2 thousand women were involved in the experiment. The experts planned to establish the influence of various factors on a woman's interest in sex. The list of influences included educational level, race, body mass index, partner status, blood pressure, hormonal levels, signs of depression, sexual orientation, degree of satisfaction from intercourse, vaginal dryness, hot flashes, etc.
Based on their analysis, scientists have found that there are 3 key trajectories for determining the importance of sex in aging. In 45% of women, intimacy was of great importance in early middle age, but gradually lost its importance. For 27%, sex retained its value, while for the other 28% it did not. Scientists report that black women were more likely to rate sex as important in their lives, while Japanese and Chinese women were more likely to rate sex as less important.
