Ever since Masters and Johnson did an exhaustive study of human sexuality in the 1950s, and 60s the subject of sex has no longer been taboo for researchers. And now, with the population aging, it is appropriate that a study at UCSD is looking at how women over the age of 40 experience sex. The study was published in the January edition of the American Journal of Medicine, and it bust some stereotypes and concepts about how sex is for older women.
