It's easy to get bogged down by the idea that as you get older, your sexual appetite and prowess wanes.

But this isn't always the case—especially for women. According to new research, the age at which women have their most fulfilling sex is 36.

The study, commissioned by contraceptive app Natural Cycle asked 2,600 women about their experience of orgasms, feelings of attractiveness and how much they enjoyed sex.

Their answers were analyzed by age which was split into three groups: younger (below 23), middle (23-35) and older (36 and over).

The answers proved promising for the oldest age group who answered that they were the most confident in their skin with 8 out of 10 saying they felt sexy. They also scored highest when it came to climaxing with nearly 6 out of 10 reporting more frequent and better orgasms.

Only 4 out of 10 women in the middle group said they were happy with their appearance while 7 out of 10 women under 23 said the same. In regard to their orgasm frequency just 5 out of 10 reported better orgasms in the younger groups of women.

When it came to sexual frequency, 86% of the older age group said they had great sex over the last four weeks compared to 76% in the middle group and just 56% of the youngest.

Proving some things really do get better with age.
