Mostly A answers: For you, sex has lost its luster. It just isn’t as big a deal to you as it was earlier and you’re fine with that. Good sex, however, does contribute to overall emotional and physical health—no matter what your age. If your sex drive is lagging, it’s helpful to find out why. There usually are medical or emotional reasons for this and plenty of options for correcting it. Good sex is important not only for your marital relationship but also for your health. Do yourself a favor and explore those options.
Mostly B answers: Save for the occasional “dry” period, you enjoy a satisfying sex life with your husband. You are comfortable with your body and know that you can turn him—and other men—on when you want to. You spend some time and money on yourself, including exercise because you love the way it makes you look and feel. You feel sexy because you are sexy!
Mostly C answers: You admit it: You haven’t felt sexy in years. The sight of your body embarrasses you and you wear baggy clothes to hide it and avoid mirrors at all costs. You can’t help that having babies and getting older ruined your body! Truth is, you could use a kick start to rev up your sex appeal. Exercise to boost the libido and tell yourself that you’re worth the time and effort to improve your appearance.
Mostly D answers: You’re tryin’ too hard, dahling. You don’t need to oversell your sexy image. You cross the line from sexy to hoochie mama. You might feel flattered to get hit on by men but you need to realize that they think you’re open for business. Tone it down. Less is more.
