In my experience, men tend to peak about 6 minutes too soon.

Men self report that "they think" beauty peaks at 29.

Actually, it's 19.

I never peak, she usually taps out and I'm left to lay there and try and jack it

No. She just doesn't want anything to do with you anymore. You should try to be nice to her once in a while and you might get some ;)

But I am nice to her, why just the other day I did all the laundry. I took it down to the basement, got it all washed and dried, then brought it back up stairs and left on the bed for her to fold like she's supposed to.

I always joke about that stereotype after sex.

29? I am assuming this study was done outside of the US. By 29 most American women are pushing the peak of their weight scales. I think that number needs to be chopped down by about 6 years.

*looks at wife*

So... that's as good as it's gonna get.

I need a good hobby, something that will take up my time... like the next 40 years of it.

Lets talk frankly about internal cleanliness: *looks at wife*

How about "chasing younger women"?

Is it our fault that you are hot and skillful at doing that thing with the peanut oil and small stuffed walrus?

Some faces look better when they lose the last of the baby fat.

Well, probably most.
 
2013-05-22 04:43:00 PM
The physical peak I'd say is around 17. You can't really say that in public, though.

Sorry, 26 is the correct answer. I've done the math. Calculus was involved.

Your opinion is invalid.

Damn bro, that's like King Arthur-type chivalrous and I'm taking notes.  I thought helping out with the laundry meant hooking the washer up to the water faucet and letting her know when the buzzer goes off.

I'm not so sure.

The "hot because young" peak is 17, but some faces are just plain beautiful, and some of those look better a bit older.
 
2013-05-22 04:45:08 PM
29?  pfffftttt...they're still emerging from their girl stage.

In my defense, I do all the cooking in the house most of the time

because her cooking is awful

I think women peak at 40.

Full disclosure: I'm 40, and I think I look better than I did at 29. It may just be that I know so much more than I did back then, which makes me more confident, which makes me look better. I certainly get hit on more now than I did back then. Who knows?

17 year old girls are for looking at and not interacting with, as you will find out if you're ever in a situation where you have to interact with a 17 year old girl.

They peak at 19, with a slow tapering off followed by a rapid plunge into oblivion from age 35 to menopause.

I would tend to say the 24-26 range, not only physically, but also because psychologically it's that golden window of serious optimism between youthful frivolity and dissilusioned bitterness.

Unfortunately, I am about to turn 30, have a boring job, and am not rich, so that age range is now out of my grasp unless I can reinvent myself. I'm seriously considering taking time off from engineering...

I have a woman friend I've know since she was about 23; she's now 34. There's no question she's more appealing now than she was then. She acts like a woman now, as opposed to a giggly girl. She's probably one of the most attractive women I know.

I hope her husband knows how lucky he is.

30 is the final step out of coked-up drunken whoredom.

Or, I need to run with a tamer crowd.

I'm childless (in fact, I'm gay). So there will be no grandma moments for me. Although I'm gay, I get hit on by more men than women. It must be my feminine wiles.

I would post pics, but I know better than that. Plus I have to be at the gym in 26 minutes.

I like guys that hold English degrees.

They do a better job writing documentation up than I do and tend to be damn good at translating technobabble into layman's terms.

Less than average women peak at 19 because the blush of youth is all they've got, average women peak at about 29, but truly beautiful women are a joy forever.

Very insightful, but you lost me with the Hallmarkesque business at the end.
