Women hit sexual peak at 27; here’s why

Regardless of the high school you attended, you must have heard that humans reach sexual maturation anytime from the age of 10.

It is during this period that the sexual and reproductive organs become ready to take on the functions they were made for.

But when do you actually hit sexual peak; that is, your most active sexual period? When do you really reach a point in your life when your sexual activities plateaus in a way that can never be matched anymore for the rest of your life?

For women, that age is 27; according to a research conducted by psychology students at the Texas State University, California State University, San Bernardino, and the University of Texas at Austin.

Published in the journal Personality and Individual Differences, the study involved 827 women divided into age ranges based and fertility quotient. Women from 18-26 were categorized as ‘high fertility’; those between 27-45 were ‘low fertility’ and from 46 up was put under the category ‘menopausal.’

Based on participants’ answers to an online questionnaire, the researchers found that women between the ages of 27 to 45 (low fertility category) possess a “heightened sex drive in response to their dwindling fertility,” as these women are “more likely to have frequent sexual fantasies, an active sex life, and a willingness to have casual sex.”

Basically, the study is claiming that women over 27 desire sex more as a result of “nature and less by nurture.”

Why there is a sexual peak

Women are driven to “capitalize on our remaining childbearing years.” by their biological clocks and the fear of being childless when menopause comes around.

Researcher Judith Easton says:

“Our results suggest there is nothing special about the 30s, but that instead these behaviors manifest in all women with declining fertility. It may be more difficult to conceive past the age of 35, but our research suggests women’s psychology will continue to motivate them to try until menopause.”

Editor’s opinion

While we are not scientists around here, it’s not hard to see that this study is pretty strange to say the very least. Strange and very questionable.

But hey, who are we to question science, right?

Here is an explanation for why communication dies slowly between a couple

Stonewalling in a relationship is what happens when one [or both] partners consciously and intentionally refuse to allow communication flow especially when there is something that really needs to be talked about.

Obviously, even when there aren’t issue or problems to deal with, the communication line between partners is meant to stay on at all times. Being able to talk to a partner; being able to express one’s deepest fears and even dumbest thoughts is one great thing about having a partner.


This is what stonewalling looks like – a partner trying to make things good, another refusing to listen.

But all that is put on hold with stonewalling.

Stonewalling is actually a form of communication deficiency, and differs greatly from the occasional timeout to calm down or collect your thoughts, which partners normally have every now and then.

It is an absolute refusal to consider your partner’s perspective. If you listen at all, you do it dismissively or contemptuously. It is a failure to practice the kind of communication skill required to keep your relationship going; and men have been accused of being main culprits of this.

According the result of a research carried out by Prof. John M. Gottman, a world-renowned psychologist, stonewalling “ is far more likely to be a male thing.”

“When women stonewall, it’s typically a function of temperament – they’re , inhibited, or . More commonly, it’s a learned behavior – engaging in conflict or emotion-laden conversation has exposed them to put-downs or abuse in the past.”

And more interestingly, men do not even know when they do this. When their partners try to initiate conversations about certain important issues that affect them, they run or continuously push such discussions of dismiss them altogether.

One of the signs that a man could be stonewalling is if he believes his partner nags him.

Women don’t necessarily nag all the time. When a partner keeps repeating something, it’s because she’s not being heard. A nagging partner is usually an unheard partner.

Whether it is practiced by a man or woman, stonewalling hurts your partner, and causes feelings of isolation, frustration, anger and could make them think that you don’t care about them or their opinions.’

There is only one solution to this malaise; intentional, effective communication.

Whether you have a spouse, bae, boo or you’re about to get one of these, stonewalling has no place in your relationship because great relationships thrive on communication not on negative actions as this.
