A survey, commissioned by contraceptive app Natural Cycles, asked 2 600 women about their experience of orgasms, feelings of attractiveness and how much they enjoyed sex.
Their answers were then analysed by age group – younger (below 23), middle (23-35) and older (36 and over).
When it comes to sexual attractiveness, women aged 36 and over proved to be the most confident in their skin, with eight out of 10 saying they felt sexy.
However, only four out of 10 women in the middle group said they were happy with their appearance while seven out of 10 women under 23 said the same. The older women also scored highest when it came to climaxing, with nearly six out of 10 reporting more frequent and better orgasms.
In contrast, just five out of 10 said the same in the younger groups of women.
The results also showed that one in three of these women said they felt sex should last longer, while one in 10 felt that it should be over quicker.
