Mid-life sex drive

Has this happend to any other man? Since becoming sexual activite at age 16 I have been very shy and insucure when it came to sex so much so I would get bad anxiety which sometimes resulting in unable to get an erection. But around age 50 something inside me change the fear and anxiety left me, the opposite happend I all of a sudden I became very  confident and with it a high sex drive and openness to explore things sex related. My wife made the comment she feels like she is married to horny teenager a sex crazed boy and to be fair to her she is not wrong I feel that way. I crave sex more my fifties  than any other time in my life.
So my question is "Is this something all men go though? An imcreased sex drive is just part of middle age?

I'm not really sure if it is something all men go through. I think horny 16 year olds stay that way. But I'm glad you found your mojo and are enjoying sex so much more. Feeling confident and less anxiety is a 'great thing' as AuntieJessi says!

It doesn't happen to every man, but every person is different. What was causing your anxiety around sex? What caused you to let that go?

Getting rid of anxiety is always a great thing. Congrats!
