What loverboy lacks in expertise, he makes up for in energy. While your friends have to schedule date nights to get serviced or wait for a blue pill to kick in, your stallion will bound out of the stables anytime, anywhere and all night if necessary. If you've been wondering what the hell the point is of having a guy reach his sexual peak in his 20s, now is exactly the time to answer that question for yourself—repeatedly.
Shari Lynn Rothstein-Kramer, 42, of Miami Beach, who is four years older than her husband, echoes the sentiment. "I am an overachiever and find that anyone older cannot keep up with me, especially when it comes to drive, stamina, the desire to try everything!"
I.G. Frederick, a novelist in her 40s, achieved tremendous satisfaction in her 18-month relationship with a 27-year-old. "In my 20s, I stopped having orgasms. Since I started having sex with younger men, I've become multi-multi orgasmic (as in can't keep count)," Frederick, who lives in Oregon, says. "After years stuck with an old and impotent husband, a young hard-body devoted to pleasing me was a vast improvement. Since he's bisexual, I did enjoy a MMF three-way with him which was something I had wanted to do for a long time."

HaLevy took great pleasure in getting her boyfriend to be more adventurous. "He had lived a relatively sheltered life, still lived with his mother. Even though he'd lived in the San Fernando Valley all his life, he'd never seen the Hollywood sign because he hadn't gone 'over the hill.' Also, food became a major exploration. I knew as I introduced him to each new taste that for the rest of his life he would associate the taste of cheremoyas and baklava with me."
