When does a man's sex drive start to decrease?

At what age does a man's libido decrease? Men, have you noticed a difference in your sex drive from your teens to 20s? 20s to 30s or are you still getting it like a fresh 17 year old? If your sex drive has decreased, is sex still a pleasurable thing or something you just don't need as much but still enjoy?

  • whenever the stress from life starts kicking the guys libido out of his life.

    Could happen any time. Could happen because he's stuck in a shitty relationship or because his partner is no longer attractive. Libido might even kick back up because of a new found success or partner starts becoming more and more attractive.

    Libido isn't something set in stone like a lot of Gag'ers seem to believe. No one can say for certain when libido drops/increases because its level depends highly on social factors which are always dynamic.

    • And hormonal... Not just social factors determine libido. Guys that maintain fitness and good cardiovascular strength maintain their testosterone levels better than those with beer bellies and loaf around watching TV.

  • It very much depends on the guy. I've always had an outrageous libido, like 15-20 times a week when it's available and I'm still that way past middle age. It's mostly about using my head to innovate and keep things fresh and new. Being kinky helps, a lot.

    • What do you come up with from your thought process?

    • All kinds of new things: buying her lingerie, new toys, new role play scenarios, new sex tricks, new kinks.

  • Testosterone starts to slowly drop around age 30, but everything slows down gradually rather than suddenly. I've noticed getting full erections take a few seconds longer than in our teens and early 20s, too.

  • Honestly I wish I could tell you, my last boyfriend who was 28 had a really high sex drive, but my currently boyfriend whose older has an extremely high drive.

  • My current boyfriend is older than my past guys, he's 40. And sex is pretty much as often if not more often than I need and I like a lot. Lol.

  • Not all guys suffer from a decrease though it is usual for it to happen gradually from 30's onward. I have always had a ridiculous sex drive now 50 it has not diminished it the slightest.

  • I'm 35 and still horny as ever. I jerk off at least once a day and get laid on average 2-3 times a week. I'd be up for more sex but my wife isn't.

  • From what I've read they say a man's sex drive goes down after 40, and a woman's picks up after 40.

  • i guess its with old age

  • I noticed I'm not too down for one night stands anymore. Could be my sex drive or I'm tired of playing around. This started after 23, I hit puberty at 11.

  • age is irrevalent

  • When he starts to have a lot of responsibilities.

  • I hope never

  • Men sex drives decrease after 30 to 35+.

  • when he realizes the world is shit that people are shit and that he'll wouldn't be much different

  • Varies a great deal by individual. Some guys are horny and capable through their 70's, some never had much to begin with.

  • My sex drive hasn't decreased (I'm 30). But my desire for pursuing sex has.

    • What do you mean when you say " my desire for pursuing sex has" ?

    • @Carmenblondey my take away is that he still very much enjoys sex. He just doesn't let the pursuit to get more and more from this woman or that woman drive him like maybe it once did.

    • I like that. I think that's very mature !!
