The secret to great sex has been revealed and it's actually simpler than you think.
All you have to do is be young at heart.
Researchers from the University of Waterloo in Canada have found that the closer a person feels to their chronological age, the lower the quality of their sex life.
Professor Steven Mock said: "What was clear from the data is that feeling younger had a huge impact on how people felt about the quality of their sex life and how interested they were in having sex.
"For people in mid to later life, feeling young at heart actually appears to make a difference in the bedroom."
"Typically, most people tend in middle age to feel younger than they are.
"When you are young it's not unusual for people to feel their age, or even feel more mature, but as you age, typically at around 40, you reliably don't feel older than you actually are.
"People say: ’I still feel like a 25-year-old or 35-year-old.'
"Feeling younger than your chronological age has an effect on the quality of sex and your interest in sex."
