Do sex drives peak at certain age?

    Probably they do.
    However, I've heard there is a difference between guys and girls in that respect.

    Men peak between the ages of 15 and 95. Woman peak just before their wedding day.

    Men are supposed to be at their peak in their late teens and early 20's and women late 20's to early 30's. That means toyboys by nature are completely acceptable ladies :smile:

    How was that researched and collerated?

    Hearsay and conjecture mainly on my part, but I didn't realise this would be relocated to biology and thus that comment was intended for General discussion where the thread was originally. I'm no biologist but those two ages, especially where I come from, are accepted as a kind of common knowledge of the approximate times men and women are supposed to reach their sexual peak. Of course perhaps a biologist could confirm or deny that with some research paper they've remembered from days past or text book that might mention it.

    Pop culture has it that men peak around 18 and women peak around 40.

    I'm sure it's mere coincidence that a man's peak falls at a time when he is most likely to maximize partners, and a woman's peak falls at a time when she is mostly likely to have a monogamous partner.
