10 Ways Men's Turn-Ons Change As They Age

YourTango, along with Glo.com and Chemistry.com, conducted a massive survey of more than 20,000 men and women on one simple, yet essential, topic: the power of attraction. We found that even if a couple's heat index waxes and wanes over time, 90 percent believe it can be rekindled long-term. And as for that age-old stigma about complacency in our comfortable relationships? Guys cited "lack of romantic love" as the single greatest turn-off as they age. So, it's more important than we all thought.

The Top 10 Traits That Attract A Man To A Woman

YourTango teamed up with Glo.com and Chemistry.com and surveyed 20, 000 people to determine the answers to all these burning questions. What we found? Naturally, "sexual chemistry" and "smile" ranked higher when a man initially meets a woman but as time marches on and fleshy excitement simmers, "kindess" and "sense of humor" ranked in the top spots.

Sexual Satisfaction And The Myth Of The Female Orgasm

Are women having orgasms in bed? Men seem to think so. According to the National Survey of Sexual Health and Behavior, 85 percent of men believe their partner climaxed during their most recent love-making session. If that's the case, women everywhere deserve a shot at an Oscars for their in-bed acting abilities. Because, according to the very same NSSHB study cited above, only 64 percent of women reported reaching orgasm during their most recent sexual event—which means that the other 21 percent are most likely faking it. What's more, an online survey over at SkinnyScoop.com reveals that a whopping 80 percent of women would prefer a massage to sex with their partner. This doesn't seem all that shocking to me. On most days, I'd prefer a box of Cheez-its to another round of unsatisfying sex.
