“Menopause, also known as the climacteric, is the time in most women’s lives when menstrual periods stop permanently, and they are no longer able to bear children.” – Wikipedia
If anyone doubts that sex is God’s idea for procreation primarily and not mainly for pleasure, all they have to do is observe menopausal women, who reach that dreaded stage around 50 years of age.
Those ladies suffer from lack of libido, vaginal atrophy and dryness, and shrinking of the clitoris which causes the inability to experience orgasm.
Are there some women who only experience some but not all of the above symptoms following menopause? Of course, exceptions validate the rules.
But, in general, enjoyable sex for and with these women is no longer an option. Any attempt to fix that unfortunate issue is like using a Band-Aid on a problem that requires surgery.
The purpose of sex within marriage is to create a family with children; and when women can no longer have children, their sexual processes automatically shut down.
Likewise, the purpose of romance is to help multiply and strengthen said family. Consequently, romance is not for unmarried, barren older women to fancy themselves with.
Besides, isn’t it better at that age to live a life free of entanglements, which down the road lead mostly to complications?
