Here's Why Sherri Shepherd Says Sex After 50 Is 'Amazing'

Sherri Shepherd is proof that age ain’t nothing but a number. She has had a storied career in entertainment as an actress and comedian. Now at 55, she is readying her very own talk show in the fall after successfully guest hosting The Wendy Williams Show while Wendy was dealing with health issues. In an interview with Yahoo Life, Sherri talked about the positives of getting older.

“I'm at the point where I don't mind saying no,” she said about being over 55. “Older to me is not a negative. Older is a positive. When, when Captain Sully landed that plane in the Hudson River, he wasn't 30 — he was older. There's a lot of stuff that you get when you're older and I've learned to forgive more. I've learned to not let people bother me. So older is really a plus and don't let anybody tell you it's not.”

Like they say, with age comes wisdom and it can also come with confidence. However, in the talk show host’s case, she has always had body confidence and felt sexy no matter what size she was.

“I always like my body. I like my body when it had rolls on it. I like my body when my stomach is tight,” she said. “You know when you're not at your best weight, when you're not at your best health. So I've never not loved my body, but I knew when I wasn't operating at optimal efficiency.”

The mother of two has documented her weight loss journey on social media. In June 2021, she revealed that she lost a total of 55 lbs since focusing on her health.

“I got lingerie in a size XX, XL, and I felt sexy. I have lingerie in a size medium, and I feel sexy,” she said. “Sexy is not the way your body looks sexy is how you feel inside.”

Sherri then proceeded to talk about how her sex life has changed since being in her 50s. “Sex after 50 is amazing. You know why?” She asked. “Because you take your time. There's no Energizer bunnies going on after 50. After 50, you know what you want and you're not afraid to say it.”

The actress’ self-titled talk show is set to premiere on Sept. 12.

Smile, Sis! These Five Improvements Can Upgrade Your Oral Hygiene Instantly

This article is in partnership with Sensodyne.

Our teeth are connected to so many things - our nutrition, our confidence, and our overall mood. We often take for granted how important healthy teeth are, until issues like tooth sensitivity or gum recession come to remind us. Like most things related to our bodies, prevention is the best medicine. Here are five things you can do immediately to improve your oral hygiene, prevent tooth sensitivity, and avoid dental issues down the road.

Could The 'O Method' Be Just What You Need To Have The Sex You Want?

An author by the name of Alexandra Katehakis once said this about orgasms: “Great spiritual teachers throughout the ages have stated that orgasm is the closest some people come to a spiritual experience because of the momentary loss of self. Why is this true? Because with spiritual sex, you move beyond orgasm into a connection with yourself, your partner, and the divine — recognizing them all as one.”

If it’s counterintuitive to what you’ve ever thought about orgasms, believe it or not, there are even pastors who have said that climaxing is the closest comprehension of heaven on this side of it: it is an extreme kind of bliss that is indescribable and is best experienced between two people who share a sacrificial kind of love for one another.
