At What Age Are Women Typically the Sexiest?

I’m not sure I thoroughly care at what age women are typically the sexiest, but the question still amuses me enough to pose it this morning. Especially since silly American culture seems to insist that real women are not sexy — rather, mere teens are. Fashion is driven by 16 year olds. So, at what age are women typically the sexiest?

My hunch is most of us will think first of the age at which women look the sexiest. Nothing wrong with that. The women who are held up to us as sexy are almost always women we know through the media, and the media emphasizes not only youth but looks too. So it’s almost natural for us to think, “sexy = pimping good looks”. But can we think outside that box?

In real life, isn’t sexy, like charisma, most often associated with behavior rather than merely with appearances? And if that is true, shouldn’t we take into account such things as the sexual confidence of women when asking the momentous question?

I’ve read psychologists who assert that around age 35 most women undergo a sea change in their attitudes towards sex. They gain vast sexual confidence. Let’s suppose that’s true. If so, would that explain why — in real life — a 30-something woman can often create in men more sexual excitement than her younger sisters? I don’t know, but I’m tossing it out as a definite possibility, and my nomination for the typical age at which women are sexiest.

Of course, I don’t mean to imply by any of this that women older or younger than 30-something cannot be drop dead sexy. Instead, I’m merely suggesting that women in their 30’s tend to reach a sexual peak. There are exceptions to every rule. Besides, the real point of this exercise has been to question the common American notion that female sexiness belongs almost exclusively to teenagers. That’s just silly.

  1. Good Question, but I don’t think I can answer it. For the question assumes that age matters. And to me how a woman acts, her personality, and what she says make more of a difference to me. Not to be clicheish, but I really would rather have a woman with larger intelligence than larger breasts.


  2. I’m probably going to be identified as a pig after this, but when I see prospective students strolling around the campus in the summertime, coeds with their mothers, I usually look past the daughter and notice the mom.


  3. Sexiness is definately something that comes from within!

    I find that I am not all that attracted to the mainstream version of sexy. I like different–at any age!


  4. Anything 40 and up. Grown up women, in other words. They are just so darned much more interesting when they are past the 20s and 30s.


  5. Do you guys really want me to tell you the answer? It’s 35. At 35, women and men, have reached their full potential of femininity and masculinity. At 35, estrogen and testosterone are still at their highest levels, and have had the longest amount of time to give women their sexy curves, breasts, and character, while men are at their strongest stature, thickest jaw line, and facial hair is full. Just think about it! look at any 21 year old girl, and look at a 35 year old women. Generally, a 35 year old will have a much bigger ass, wider hips, bigger breasts, and has her shit together. The strongest men in the world are in their low to mid 30’s. Look at mariusk pudanowski, 35 now, worlds strongest man. Go into the gym and look for yourself at who is the biggest. Some 20 year old kid or a 35 year old. 35 is the magic number, I rest my case. After this year hormones tend to fall 1% for the rest of your life, depending on how well you take care of yourself. Stress, sleep, working out, diet, and overall happiness level influence your genetic hormone track.


  6. Thank you, I’m a woman in late twenties and really sick of all this bullshit in the manosphere about this ‘hitting the wall’ stuff and ranking women out of ten. Seems many men place too much emphasis on youth and physical attractiveness. I get it attractiveness it important but who says a woman past thirty can’t be sexy? I was an asshole a**hole in my early twenties…I gather the current crop are even more so with all of this Jersey Shore nonsense floating around. I think men should be going for the full attractive woman with brains, life experience and substance.


  7. Can I simply say what a relief to discover a person
    that truly knows what they’re discussing on the web. You certainly understand how to bring a problem to light and make it important. More and more people must read this and understand this side of the story. I can’t believe you are not more popular since you surely possess
    the gift.
