‘I want to try new things in bed, but I’m not sure my husband will agree’

Dear Coleen

I’m a woman in my early fifties and have suddenly found a new lease of life when it comes to sex. I want it more than I ever have and want to try new things, but I’m not sure how my husband would react.

In our twenties and thirties, we had a fabulous sex life but it hit a wall in our forties, which was probably the result of bringing up kids, busy work lives and hormonal changes for me.

It feels a bit awkward talking to him about it – don’t get me wrong, he enjoys sex, but we tend to do the same things that we’ve done for years. Any tips?

Well, this is refreshing – usually women in their fifties write to me about a drop in libido because of the menopause, so I say embrace it.

I do think there’s something liberating about getting through those years of bringing up kids and feeling more independent, and having the opportunity to focus on yourself – it is sexy!

Look, I imagine your hubby will be thrilled, so why not book a weekend away and go for it? You can also initiate sex and show him what you want instead of having the conversation first – then you can talk about it afterwards.

I think it’s wonderful you’ve rediscovered your sexual confidence – make the most of it.
