Can a man's sex drive start to decrease in their 40's?

Can a man's sex drive start to decrease in their 40's?

Yes and no: Production of testosterone does begin to taper off in mid-life which can affect sex drive.

Height is done by 25: Most people reach their maximum height in their late teens. Without nutritional problems or chronic childhood illnesses, height is largely based on genetics and parental heights.
